Daddy has a friend, T, who loves Cats. We like it when he comes over, because he's always good for a nice scratch behind the ears...he doesn't even mind Grayce and her Biting Ways!
T has a doggy and we're used to smelling Sampson on him. But one day last week T came over and he had an entirely different odor on him...
It was that NEW KITTEN SMELL!!!
We immediately sent Mommy and Daddy over to investigate.
They found this lil' guy...
...who was kind of shy at first.
Mommy hauled him out from behind the table to gave him pets and kisses and he relaxed right away.
His name is Rio!
Rio: Hi Everybody!
I'm just tidying up here.
Gotta keep my Flame Points Spotless!
Um, I am not doing what you think.
The Visiting Lady Who Squishes and Kisses me put some NIP down for me!
mmmmmmmm, I LIKE catnip.
As much as like tummy rubs.
They make me purr like a motorboat.
I'm a four-month old wild and crazy guy!
The Visiting Man Who Eats Kitten Ears gave me this toy.
oooooooh, and this one too!
Look at my mighty claws as I kill this ball!
I have HUGE paws, I'm gonna be a Big Boy.
Uh oh, INTRUDER ALERT!!
Sampson: Whatcha doin, Rio?
Actually, me and Sampson get along pretty good. I like to follow him around and see what he's doing.
I really like the younger human here, too.
See how he holds the scratchy post for me?
I sleep with him at night and make squillions of biscuits on his pillow.
Yup, I like my new home and my new family.
I'll have them whipped into shape in no time!
So kitties, that's who we smelled on T, and when Mommy and Daddy got home we sniffed them, too. We'll get some more photos as Rio gets older. He's gonna be a Handsome ManCat!
