The New Kitty!

Folks,

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.

I think he looks like a cross between a Siamese Cat and an Orange Tabby, what do you think?

Oh, he's beautiful! Look at those blue eyes! I think you are bang on with the identification of his ancestry. I hope he settles down and your two cats learn to at least tolerate each other. I'm sorry I don't have any name ideas. No wait, how about calling him Bounce?

He's precious. Maybe everybody can be friends eventually.

Our cat was holding the dog's nose in his paws from atop the dog hut this morning, and vigorously licking her face. Then he bit her nose and they parted company.

He is very cute. I agree with you and Alison about his parentage.

Name recommendation: Abraham DeLacey Giuseppe DeCasey Thomas O'Malley. The vagabond from the Aristocats.

Surely he'd answer to some part of that. :-)

I agree, a cross between a Siamese and an Orange Tabby. He is sure pretty. Know he will settle into the new digs and be a great friend for years to come.

flame point siamese. How about a durham themed name for his new permanent home? :)

He is quite handsome and that apricot accent color is so unique! Makes me think of Jam. Marmalade. Jelly.

He is gorgeous!
What about Travieso? means trouble maker. And then you can call him Travi for short :)

Pretty cat. You have a Dot and a Daisy. How about Dash?

I think you're right about the cross of the two cats. He is handsome.

Beautiful cat.

He is a handsome fellow. Maybe it is all the stresses of a new home that keeps him from learning.

He's adorable! He seems like a Mr Moth to me ...

He is a beauty! Maybe Sammie for the Siamese touches to the face. With our cats, they have given names then many nicknames so the perfect name shall come along at some point….
