Skills: Peridot taught herself to snap a hairband across the room so she could chase it.
Arrival Story: Peridot followed us home after straying in the local lot for a month, or so people told us (we had just moved in). She was about six months old at the time and starving. She charmed both of us within three days with her intelligence and affectionate demeanor.
Bio: Peridot has medium long hair which is very soft and shiny. Her eyes are Peridot green. She is probably at least part Siamese or purrhaps Burmese, as she has quite a distinct, loving personality. Perri is extremely trusting and gentle, playful, and clever. She loves to "help" me in whatever I'm doing (thanks, cutie). Perri happily greets any visitor at the door, sniffing new ones carefully.
I am making do here with the Kid; he is sometimes not annoying.
Mommy and Daddy have a point in that he DOES look awfully cute when he's sleeping or even adjusting positions in his sleep...it's mesmerizing, but don't tell him I said that!
He doesn't ALWAYS annoy me, like, sometimes it's nice to trot up to great Mommy and Daddy at the door together...or create more noise together when it's dinnertime and Mommy or Daddy forget all about us - before we starve to death. Simon has a nice, piercing meowl which is pretty effective, methinks.
We take turns stalking and attacking The Elusive Red Dot. Simon's hearing is so good he alerts me to its approach by leaping for the front door, where it usually makes its first appearance...kind of nice to have an early warning system like that. So yeah, there are some perks to this Kid so I guess I'll let him stay.
My "new brother" is a real pain in my furry butt!! LITERALLY! He often lunges and tries to take a bite out of it!! I hiss and spit and swipe at him but he is so thick, he just thinks I'm playing. I'll give him playing!!!
I got back at him the other day, a little bit. I stayed quietly on the coffee table and as he passed with his tail straight up, I swatted the tip of it. Two or three times! It's like he didn't even feel it! Kept coming back for more... hehehehehehe purrpurrpurr
For real, though...sometimes I'll be sleeping and he'll pounce on me. Dude has like five pounds on me! It's really a lot to deal with, Furrends!
There are rare times though, where I kind of lick the top of his head a little bit. They're really rare, and usually I'm kind of in a sleepy daze and don't realize what I'm doing. That doesn't last long though, because he's bound to smack me back to reality...
I am really getting too old for this nonsense! I just hang out close to Mommy and she kind of keeps my new brother at bay for me.
