i am very excited to announce the addition of a new furry member to my family!
(yes, that’s right…i am one step closer to being dubbed “the crazy animal lady down the street”, and i’m totally okay with that.)
you may remember The Riverdale Gang…well, little Archie, who captured my heart during our photo shoot, has come home to stay.
Archie (named after the famed redheaded comic book boy-next-door) is such a sweetheart! he loves to purr, snuggle in my neck, and tickle my ears with his whiskers. he has already kneaded my chest, marking me as his person. in true kitten fashion, he is curious about everything. i try to keep him entertained with toys galore, but he seems most interested in the rest of my gang…
who, overall, are adjusting to his presence fairly well. i really didn’t know how it would go, so i am relieved that there has been no bloodshed.
i did assume that Cameron would love him instantly. well…not so much (as you can see for yourself in the video below). i hope in time she will warm up to him, since i brought him home for her to have a friend to play with when i’m not around.
Little Dude is curious, but a tad afraid of him, which is funny to see…lots of nervous yawns and licks going on.
the biggest surprise is Tichka’s reaction. it looks as if she has found a soul mate in this teeny ginger furball. it melts my heart to see them together. he lets her lick him and poke his belly with her nose. they have even shared a snuggle or two within record time. he’s seems to be a smitten kitten too.
i am happy to say that my redheaded gang is complete…two girls and two boys, two dogs and two cats. hopefully in no time, once Archie settles in, we will all be one big happy family!
REMEMBER: there are still four other kitten beauties that are now ready to be adopted to a lucky home!
