Kip Update

relaxed fellow

Hi all, Kip here.  I've been in my new home for a week and I thought everyone might like an update.  I'm feeling pretty comfortable now and no longer hide under the bed.  I'm still in my own room but I'll be meeting my brothers soon now that my sniffles and sneezes have cleared up and I got a clean bill of health from the vet!

playing with the tickler
I love snuggling with my mum and she seems to like it too when I lie on her chest and make happy paws in the air.  I tuck my head under her chin and purr and purr, mum smiles and tickles my tummy and toes.   I've had a couple of face to face encounters with my brothers, mum held me in her arms and dad held each of the boys in turn so we could see each other and have a sniff.  That went really well each time and only Jimmy gave me a little hiss.  That made mum laugh because not so long ago he was the newcomer!

looking adorable
Well that's all for the moment.  Mum promises to take lots of pictures when I meet my brothers so we can show all of you.  Please keep your paws crossed that all goes well :-)

Heh! Great news about the settling in Kip. I have to say you are one handsome little House Panther. I gots a house full of all color kitties, but my little House Panther is my special favorite little friend. He had a bit of a easy time when he joined the clowder, even helped raise the others as they joined. It's a bit nervous going at first, but it will be OK after a while. So glad you are happy. Be safe, and let us hear more about your settling in.

And y'all come see us sometime.

Later .....

Kip is so cute.Over the weekend I have seen many black cats.little weee ones @the Humane Society.They are really hard to resist.But I have 2 dogs with 2 cats so.I have to bite my tongue ha!

I think thats the best way to go by putting him somewhere alone and waiting a bit for the meeting of the minds so to speek lol.
