While all the health issues were going on in the last couple of weeks, Fabgrandpa and I decided to get another kitten. We wanted one that was at least three months old, so that he would be a companion for Rosie The Boy Cat. We went to the Haralson County Animal Shelter to adopt our new little kitty.
Morti, short for Mortimer, is an orange Tabby cat with somewhat long hair and a bushy tail. He was the oldest kitty at the shelter, and his euthanization date was the day after we were there. He was also the friendliest one of all, actively reaching out of the cage to play with us. He is a pretty boy for sure.
The first day that Morti was here, there was a lot of hissing, batting of paws, and arching of backs on both sides. Rosie was not sure that to think of this feline intruder. This went on for about two days, then there were a couple of days of Rosie ignoring Morti, sort of like, if I ignor him he won’t be here.
On the second or third day here, Morti claimed Rosie’s bed as his own. This was not taken very well by Rosie. I am going to have to get another kitty bed for him soon. I know he was mad at me for this, I could just tell. I got the cold shoulder from Rosie for several days.
It has been exactly one week since Morti came to live with us. The two kitties are now at least friendly to each other. I saw them playing together this afternoon for the first time, and that made me happy. What do y’all think of our new kitty?
