This past few months my Sweet Senior Cat, Rikki has been showing signs of slowing down and her 17 years are starting to take it's toll. She needed some stimulation and I thought a new baby kitty might just do the trick.
I was so right!
This past week I rescued a 7 month old little girl from the shelter.
When I first came in the kitchen with "Daisy" she did what most new kitty's do, investigate the entire area with out showing any fear. She just walked from room to room as though she knew where she was. Then when she found the door to the cat box ( I keep the box in the heater room and the door is always ajar), out came Rikki. It's been quite some time since Rikki has seen a kitty and her first reaction was to hiss at the little one, but I'm so happy to say Daisy simply by passed Rikki and went right to the box.
Rikki's habits have changed since bringing Daisy home. A lot!
She always spent her lazy days on the foot of my bed just looking out the balcony door but this past few days she has taken over my new sewing chair while watching Daisy as she moves from room to room.
She also has taken residence in the storage room below my staircase and I find myself going in there and taking Rikki out about 4 times a day. Rikki is stubborn to say the least!
I'm sure she is thinking "The little brat will not find me here"!
This is where I drag her each time I take her out of the store room. Rikky can keep an eye on her new baby sister.
After only 5 days in her new home, Daisy is very happy and comfortable with us and this makes me smile.
This past two days Daisy has found the perfect vantage point to watch all that go's on both up and down stairs.
When Rikki wants to come down, it's funny to watch her tip toe around her little sister.
A new problem has come up, Daisy found the bird cage and "Jack and Molly" are not too happy when she hops up on the table next to them.
That is another story. One I hope will solve it's self.
Have a great weekend!
