We have now had the new kitty 8 days, he seems settled in. It took no time for him to get adjusted to our 2 old dogs Dot and Daisy. He is still not adjusted to Valentine our female cat. They growl at each other and do small chases. No cat fights have ensued thus far. We see a bit of jealousy between the two cats in regards to territory and us.
He has lived in three states already and he is just a year old. Has had a lot of names, first Mannie, then Baby Kitty and also Marty. We have thought about calling him Mellow, but his antics inside the house changes that. He had bounced off the big chairs in the living room like he's banking a turn on roller blades! Another name we are considering is Trouble Maker. Anyone think of a good name for this kitty, we are stumped thus far?
He has been outside by himself unattended, but he has not figured out the pet door even though he has witnessed Dot going in and out many times. We have showed him through the pet door several times. He was an inside cat so he is slowly getting used to going outside. Our biggest problem right now is his climbing on the window screens chasing after moths.
