On April 9th, I got a new kitten. He is about 4 1/2 months old, and his name is Sunny. Here is the first post about Sunny: New Family Member, Sunny.
My other cats, Jerry (7 years old) and Brady (4) took almost a week to give Sunny a lukewarm welcome to the family. Maggie (6) still is not impressed with her new brother, but Jerry and Brady have become hospitable. Brady will play with Sunny sometimes, however, Sunny tends to push playing a bit too far for Brady's liking.
About three times a day, Sunny uses our home as a speedway. He zooms from room to room at high speeds. There doesn't seem to be any set travel plan, it looks totally like random, sporadic mad dashes.
One thing Sunny started doing about five days ago, was sleeping on the cat condo. The first time I saw him on it, I wondered what Brady would do to him when he realized that the new guy was on his condo. Brady has always been the only cat to use it since I bought it. But...Brady has been a trooper about it. He doesn't seem to mind at all.
Sunny does have one habit that none of the other cats have ever had, which is to climb up my hanging clothes in the closet to get to the top shelf. I've never seen him do it, and I don't usually realize he is up there until boxes of things begin to land on the closet floor with big thuds.
Before Sunny arrived, I hadn't realized how quiet and peaceful my home had become. Now I am reminded ever day about how quickly things can change, and how nice it can be to change things up a bit.
