Well here we are in a new year and we have a new fur!
All welcome Mr Buttons.
Now the Boyz really did not know all the discussion between me and Pops about this move but let me tell you it was quite heated at times. It is a big thing to change the composition of a family unit. We had tried in the past with temporary fosters and what have you. Those outcomes were not good. We wanted this to work if it could.
I was skeptical. I know my brofurs a wee bit better, being a cat you know, so I did not think it would work. We are territorial and we are a bunch of touchy Man-Cats. Look at me wrong and the fur flies. Well not really but you know what I mean. We can be a bit hissy. And then there is Buddy. A touchy cat if there ever was.
Now Pops was more optimistic. He said that we did not realize it but we had been smelling Buttons for months. He was right. I thought fur a minute and realized I never raise a whisker when Pops comes up from foster care. He also said that this was a pretty easy going cat. I finally gave in.
I introduced our new kid to everycat. We decided to just call him "B". Buddy gave a cat laugh and said it was lucky he was not going to have kids. That old Galoot does get a zinger off now and again.
It was a bit odd for the first day or so. The kid loves Pop, don't we all, and insisted on sleeping with him. We came in at our normal times each wondering "where is the new kid", and, there he was all snuggly nuggly with Pops. He was purring up a storm. Well we all went off to the couch. No way should he be in the bed. Not the first night. Where was his etiquette, his breeding, his... Yeah we were jealous. We each kept coming in and looking and leaving. So Tuesday it was the same. Wednesday we all played after Pops came home from work and that was that. Toby came in and settled into his spot and it seems they had already discussed the rotation. Toby really had 2 spots so it all works out fine.
So once the sleeping was arranged it was all fried in mouse butter. We all sleep soundly and all play like we were from the same litter. Except Old Buddy. Of course. But, I see a little cat smile from the Old Galoot when B Whacks Rumpy. MOL. The more things change...
So we have to decide if our new boy B gets a new page. Hmmm? Maybe he could just have the foster page and then he will be the foster liaison? We shall see. We shall see.
Have a wonderfur week all!
Your Cat on the scene
wow now that is totally awsome that you are all getting along so well from the very start.
B is sure a handsome mancat. He looks quite alot like me!
Your Pops sure has a way with cats and making you all feel comfortable. Great it is going so well. Hope B gets his own page!
Great to get along so well!
Get a page...get a life and he is IN! MOL!
Oops did we mew that...?
Glad y'all are getting along!
You lucky guys! Another little mancat to play with! Thats not so bad!
Know whats bad? Getting kicked out of the bedroom because there's a Natcat in there. Know what a Natcat is? A hissy female grumpycat wrapped in orange fur!
