I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a wonderful Christmas Day. Today is Boxing Day and the Second Day of Christmas. I must admit, I am getting used to the little guy. He is a cute little fellow, I will give him that, and he purrs like there's no tomorrow. The minute you touch him, he starts purring. My humans seem to love the fact that he purrs so easily. Although I like to purr, you do have to earn my purrs with a bit of petting or head rubs or chin scritches.
The little guy seems to be okay, though. I like curling up next to him when we are both napping - he gives off as much heat as I do. The only problem is that we have to share mom or dad's lap. I do like grooming him too. I still have to show him who's boss though, but he seems to recognize that I'm the one in charge here.
We both received lots of wonderful gifts for Christmas, including our fabulous Secret Paws package from Fat Eric. As soon as my mom downloads the photos off the camera, I will share them with you.
Anyhow, I think I'll get used to having this little kitten around. It is kinda fun having someone to boss around, although my humans won't let me get too rough with him.
This is my first Meezer Rule Wednesday! My rule is this: Always do your best to look cute. When you look cute and adorable, humans seem to forgive a multitude of mistakes! Looking cute while purring at the same time seems to work even better!
We celebrated something that they called Christmas yesterday! It was wonderful. I got to explore another room in the house - the family room! It was very exciting. The big Sphynx and I received lots of new toys to play with, and the big Sphynx and I even played together. We also napped together a couple of times. The big Sphynx seems okay, except he's always trying to groom me! My ears, face, back, belly, legs, tail, bum, and even my very private parts that I'm not sure I like having him groom! He also keeps attacking me at times, pinning me down and biting my neck, even though I'm on my back and showing him my belly. He hasn't hurt me, though, and a couple of times I've managed to get in a couple of bites on his ears.
Mom & Dad:
Well, the two boys seem to be getting along better, when they aren't trying to kill each other, that is. They have slept curled up next to each other several times now, and like to play together. Dragonheart loves grooming Merlin, all over, and Merlin seems to like most of it - he purrs when Dragonheart is grooming him, except when he gets to certain spots.
They seem to want to eat each other's food! Although we put them in separate rooms at mealtimes, if there's any left over, Dragonheart tries to eat Merlin's kitten food, and vice versa. It wouldn't be a big deal if it wasn't for Dragonheart's food allergies.
Dragonheart seems to be the dominant "alpha" cat. At times he "attacks" Merlin, grabbing the kitten by the scruff of his neck with his teeth, and Merlin turns over onto his back and shows him his belly. From what we've read, this is normal behaviour, and as long as they aren't hurting each other, to let it happen. Merlin doesn't seem to try to run away or hide when this happens, he just growls or makes a funny little unhappy noise.
We are giving both of them lots of attention, and all of us are sleeping in the kitten nursery at night - Dragonheart curls up at our feet, or behind the knees of one of us, and Merlin seems to like being up next to a chest, or under and armpit!
Merlin is definitely a friendly little fellow. He seems to love humans even more than Dragonheart! Dragonheart loves being around people and meeting new people, and purrs easily, but you do have to earn his purrs. Merlin purrs at the slightest touch. He wants to always be either next to one of us or in a lap, except when he's running around like a crazy kitten, playing hard! He's even more energetic than Dragonheart was as a kitten, which is amazing! He just bounces around, attacking or playing with his toys, and running through the room. Like a typical kitten, he is either "go go go" or sleeping. No middle ground.
So the two boys are starting to get along, and hopefully things will continue to improve.
