What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? I was pretty young, and during my first trip from San Diego to Los Angeles had an accident in the carrier. I had to share it with my half brother Marshal Davout. He was even more scared, and I hadn’t met him before then because I was still in with my litter mates. I still had another hour drive to get home. It was pretty dark but I only cried a couple of times…pretty loudly. I still stay quiet until I have something important to say.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? After a wet-wipes bath and some food and water I felt a lot better. We were in our own room with lots of little cubby holes just right for kittens. Davout was too scared to move but had a bed in a cubby. I did a little exploring of the room but found a nice spot where I could hide but watch what Dad did. Mostly he left us alone, or watched me explore some. When Davout relaxed some we made friends. We had to stay there together for a while before meeting the other cats.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? I learned some bad habits from Uncle Julius (RIP) and climbed the wall in the back yard. This summer I did it, but instead of jumping down into the pool area, which is fun, I followed the wall along past several houses. On the way back, I lost count and jumped into someone else’s yard into her house. I hid behind her sofa while she tried to get her little dog away and shoo me out of her yard. She got me out of her house, but I hid on the wrong side of the gate. Then I heard my Dad bringing out the ladder to check the big lot out back for me, and rushed up a trellis and made a big jump to the wall top and back home. I’ve learned only how to count better, and Dad isn’t eager to let me out back until he fixes things.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I don’t think I fool him very much, but he doesn’t have many rules. Every one at the vets or who fixes things in the house loves me.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? That I am too mean to Anna. I’m just playing until she hisses at me one time too many.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
