I can NOT believe that September is almost over!!! Where did this month go?!!! Well, we had a wonderful new addition added to our family this month...
His name is Jasper Skittles.
The photo above was sent to me by the breeder... and I mean who would NOT fall instantly in love!!! Am I right?!!!! He is 8 weeks old in the photo. Jasper is a Cornish-Rex kitten. As I am allergic to all cats. I had to search for a cat that wouldn't bother me. I knew the Cornish-Rex wouldn't... I have been around them before.
So, Mr. Jasper Skittles came home to live in the Poodle house.
This is me at the breeders home picking up Jasper....and my poodle heart being cracked wide open by a 2 pound kitty.
He has been a complete joy to have in the house. Because he has very little fur he is a snuggler. You sit still and he will find your lap. He LOVES my poodles. He was raised with dogs in the breeders home. My little poodles Zoey and Daisy...love him too. They even run around and play with him. My Big-girl Bella on the other hand... thinks a squirrel has gotten into the house!!!
Yikes!!! So, we have had to separate the two for the last month...slowly introducing Bella to the wee little kitten...showing her that he is NOT lunch. Nor is he going to hurt her or us. She is a very nervous protective dog.
We are very proud of our Big-girl Bella...she and Jasper are now...after a very LONG month... best of buds. And the crazy thing is....Jasper wants her over the other two dogs every time. He loves her.!!! Even when at the beginning he was running for his life....LOLOL!!!!
He is a very curious kitty. He gets mesmerized by things...and just watches.
Like me doodling in my artjournal.
The whole family came together and made him his very own Cat tower. It is 5 feet tall....and faces the backyard. You should see him scale that front rope pole. He is so fun to watch.
We have all learned NOT to sit on the couch without checking for the kitten first...Where's Jasper? if we see him off the couch... fine. If not... start moving the couch cushions... and you just might find him snuggled down.
I bought this cement poodle a few years ago...her name is Happy. Got a photo of Jasper just taking in the commotion of all the people on the couch. I had company over at the time.
Love this pic. It gives you a great look at his whole body shape.
Now instead of a lap full of poodles...I now have a wee little kitty there too.
I almost had all 4 of my fur-babes in this picture...but Bella moved at the last second. Oh well...maybe next time.
thanks for stopping by....
