What’s it all about, Alfie?

We have a name: Alfie.

Short for Alfalfa, per the hairdo.

Things are going pretty well. The kitten has been quartered in the master bathroom/bedroom with the bird cage blocking the door, affording him free egress and a place to dash into, but keeping the dogs out. (They mostly want the kitten food and to raid the kitten sandbox. (hey, they’re dogs, they can’t help it.) I was concerned about Possum the pup, which in fact, was the reason I’ve been resisting the urge to get a kitten for a while. He’s so rowdy and loves to roughhouse with the grown cat, Ira, that I was worried he’d overwhelm or harm a smaller kitty. However, with some reinforcement, Possum seems to have quickly grasped that the kitten is in the same citizen class as the parrot: inviolable, not to be chased under any circumstances. Grommit is charmed, gentle and well-behaved — he’s been around the block a few times and this is not his first kitten

Ira is not happy about the addition. He’s decided to practice actively ignoring Alfie, hoping he disappears.


Pinkness!


Baby teefs iz sharp.


Surreptitious kitten-butt sniff. Possum finds the kitten-butt aroma irresistable.

  3. OMGoddess!!! What a cutie paTOOtie!!! 🙂 Gawrsh, I hope Alfie isn’t like my old Neiman (who moved on w/my long ago ex) – he was a gassy-cat extraordinaire…and he managed to look so innocent about it… 🙂
    Blessings! And welcome to your “forevar home” Alfie!!!

  4. He’s not gassy. The dog just likes to smell his butt.

    He sure looks like he’s going to be at least somewhat fluffy- he’s covered with fine white bunny-type fur
