I adopted a new kitty. He’s gradually making himself at home.
In the last few days, he’s made significant progress in breaking down the resistance of the other cats. They now can all eat in the same room, and Sammy (the grey cat) doesn’t hiss every time she sees the new cat.
He’s a hilarious little being. I haven’t had a kitten before — at least, not since I was a wee one myself — and I’m surprised every day by his unending energy and his ability to turn anything he encounters into a toy. He also makes the funniest sounds. He doesn’t “meow” or even “mew.” The noise he makes is more of a squeak or peep.
I still don’t have a name for him. I’ve looked for princely names to suit his apparent sense of entitlement and slight obliviousness to the concerns of others — Prince Hal is the closest so far — but I’m not sold on that. Suggestions?
