the Boss

We are kitten heavy today. 

We let Simon out last week. Out of his enclosure. Not out of the house. Never out of the house. 

For the first hour, he stuck to the adjoining room. But now he owns the place. He's brave, feisty and adventurous. He's also figuring out hierarchy. Or we are. 

Simon found the dining room table easy enough. 
We have forgotten how much energy kittens have. We haven't had one for 16 years. 

The word your looking for is: antagonistic. 

.....and adorable. 

....and antagonistic, again. 
He's seems all hype and no followthrough. 

And very inquisitive about everything. 

But when it comes down to it, there can only be one boss.

Poor Shep! Doesn't like being teased, most of all by a new little upstart!

Cats all seem to have the trait of, once getting familiar with a place or surroundings, they get all cocky and sure of themselves as though they've sussed it out and are in control - until they find that they aren't. :-)

Looks like Shep knows how to set boundaries.

We are seeing the same with Rosita; she wants to be everywhere and on everything all at once.

So nice to see him settling in.

I would be barky too, if my humans spent all their time doting on some KITTEN and forgot to take me out for my walks and swims.

Simon is learning - don't disturb an old guy taking a nap (I would have barked too!)

Great Caturday post. Such a cute boy.

That was rather abrupt , Shep has become a cranky old man, I guess he has seniority , hope things reach a more friendly middle ground. The kitten is so delightful and makes even me feel young. I say that as a confirmed dog man .
