Momma and Mancat Monday

We have a new mancat in the house.  We've been playing whappy paws under the door.  That's been all fine and stuff...but this weekend, mom opened the door!  I was afraid to go in, but my momma isn't afraid of anything or anyone, so she went in first while I watched.
She just went right in and sniffed him and he let her!  They shared funny growlie chirpie noises and a few whappy paws...but that was all.
Then momma showed him who is top cat in our house.
Hey buddy, just because you have the remote, does NOT mean you are in charge.

Your Momma is a lot like Delilah! Not afraid of anything!

We think Figaro is a very cute though, so maybe your momma just likes a handsome mancat!

Cool Momma!!! You show those Mancat kitty-cats who the boss is and don't you let them get out of line. They have to respect you because you are THE MOMMA!! Purrs and luck, Tiny (and goofy mancat Lautrec)

Those are definitely some very big eyes! We hope Figaro settles in nicely. He certainly looks content on that chair.

It won't take long for Figaro to figure out (!) that Ellie is the Queen of the house, and a lovely one at that!

AFSS said...

We are thrilled everyone is getting along. Momma cat rocks.

Junior and Orion said...

Well, we will be purring for things to stay this calm.

Eric and Flynn said...

You have a good momma for being nice to Figaro and even letting him hang on to the remote.
You look like a little owl Cory with your big round eyes.

Cindy said...

Pretty kitty! That's right, be the boss.

catsintrees said...

Momma rules, always. But Figora looks smart and sweet enough to quickly understand that.

the casbah kitten said...

We're sure that Figaro will fit in just fine. BTW....those are some serious big eyes you've got there!

Ayla and Iza, said...

Our best wishes ta Figaro! May he fit it well and quickly...

Nico and JayJay said...

& what a handsome mancat he is!! Figaro & Ellie, can you come over to our house? Nico needs a few pointers on how to share the household - Figaro, you can teach him to be more laid back & Ellie, you can teach him how to be a leader, not just a stuck up, meanie-crabby older brother!!

Have a happy day!!

~Nico, Simon & JayJay :)

ps. Simon's blushing at your compliments. He says to say "hi" to all the girl kitties!
pps. Cory - our Mom thinks you have the bestest name in the world & agrees with you that everyone named Cory is special!!
