Yesssssss! - The Dainty Squid

Yesssssss!

Sunday, August 08, 2010


This little finger biter is....FOREVER MINEEEE! All his tests came back negative! I am beyond relieved. I'm so glad I was able to rescue this beautiful little guy and give him a forever home.

I didn't bring him upstairs last night, just to give the other three one more night alone. Now he's coming up stairs for short periods of supervised time.


Leaf was the first to pay him any attention. He walked right over and started sniffing. He didn't growl, or hiss at all. He was just making all these little tiny noises at him, like talking and trying to figure out what the kitty was. Their not buddies yet, but I'm positive Leaf will be the first one to warm up to him. Maybe it's because Leaf was the third addition to our family and he knows what it feels like to be the odd cat out. Whatever the case I'm really proud of Leaf for being sweet to the kitten because we know someone else wasn't...


Doctor Octopus, I knew this guy would cause problems. He didn't pay much attention to the Professor at first, then he started sneaking up and hissing. He's currently mad at everyone else in the house as well. Poor baby Doc, I hope he gets over this soon and realizes we aren't replacing him and he's still (and always will be) my favorite little white and gray cat. 


And Squid, not quite sure how she's feeling. She would rub noses with the kitten then she'd hiss, rub noses again and hiss. She looks so curious in the photo above, or maybe more like she's thinking "WHAT?!" (And look, I actually got a cute picture of Squid! GO ME!)


Thank you all for the well wishes for Professor Stingray. I'm so glad he's healthy.
xoxo!

  4. This just happened to my best friend, she has two cats and now two kittens. Her one cat was ok with it, but her other cat was so mean. I actually had to save one of the kittens because her other cat (Roxanne) went over to it hissed then started batting at it, it was so sad :( I hope you little family starts getting acquainted with their new brother!

  18. Yaaay! Kitties are just the best. I'm glad the tests came back negative and that he's healthy.

    Doc probably just feels a bit threatened, I'm sure he'll get used to Prof. soon. And that picture of Doc is actually quite funny.

    I've always found it interesting how every cat has a completely different personality, I guess it makes things interesting! :)

  45. I'm so happy he is all okay! he is one of the cutest little cats ever :) his eyes are amazing! just curious but what would have happened if Stringray hadn't have passed the test? would he just have needed treatment or would you not have been allowed to keep him? :(

    ReplyDelete

  48. Prof. Stingray is so lucky to be living with you and the other cats! I bet they'll get used to him, and one day you'll walk in and they'll all be cuddling...it may take a while, but it'll be great when it happens. :) Congratulations

  63. D'aww. My favorite thing about Siamese cats is their scratchy, ratchety meows, and the frequency of their meows (or at least all of the Siameses that I've known have been very talkative). Does the Professor do that yet?
