I think we are making some good progress with the newbies...

Well, it has been quite a week. First of all, Pat has not called Ziggy "Ziggy" once so we have decided to change his name to Rascal...he is a little rascal anyways and it is a fitting tribute to the "Rascal" who peaked my interests in cats :lovestruck:

It has been very emotional with Zuzu recovering from her spay and Rascal coming down with full blown Rhino. They are both doing well now and the only hissing left is when one or the other is using the litterboxes...how weird is that???? :laughing::laughing::laughing:

Here are some pics from this week...

Bedtime...no room for me :frustrated:

Sweet Rascal :cloud9:

Sleepy Zuzu :lovestruck:

Wonderful pics!! You sure can tell in that first one that hubby is a proud papa!! He looks so happy to be surrounded by all that fur.
Love the ones of the kitties close together. It doesn't take long normally to get to that point. Now they are both feeling more themselves soon the couch pics should be of the two of them curled together. Not at both ends. :cloud9:
The name change is very fitting. :thumbs up

Don't you love the nightly wrestling matches to make room on the bed? It's become a family tradition here! :laughing:

The feline duo seem to be getting along purrrty well :thumbs up What were they watching out that window?

Love the bed shot - my hubby would never let the critters onto the bed let alone look so happy about it! I miss that from pre-hubby days. I thought the blanket dog was a real dog at first!! Those two are a match.

Okay, I have to say, that photo with the dog throw confused the heck out of me.:laughing:

So, is Ziggy now Rascal?

Yes, Ziggy is now Rascal. Pat didn't get it right once this week. Kept calling him "it" or Rascal so we agreed to switch. Good thing too as now that he is feeling better he is into EVERYTHING!!! He can open the cupboard doors and get into all the cupboards OMG :crazy:

Pat and I both love the furkids in bed with us. Truth be told, Ginger usually gets off once the carrots are gone, Hobo sleeps at my feel, Rascal sleeps and Pat's feet and Zuzu snuggles between the two of us. By morning only Hobo is left on the bed. The others all move onto their own beds.

It reminded me by all your comments, in the old days when we first got Ginger Pat still wore contacts. In the mornings, before he would put them in, he would OFTEN come down wish "Ginger" a good morning when in fact he was talking to the dog head on the throw :laughing::laughing::laughing: She wasn't even on the couch :p

Adorable pics :cloud9: I see Ginger is still a wee bit unsure of Zuzu especially when she's facing/looking at her, where as Rascal's not facing/looking at Ginger on the couch so she'll get right next to him :laughing:

Cute pics :lovestruck: and glad to hear that the newbies are starting to get along :thumbs up but my Ziggy is totally offended that you don't like his name. :D

Please tell Ziggy not to be offended...we love that name. It's just that Pat never remembered to say it. He always called him Rascal. Truth be told, I am pretty sure he calls me Babe because he can't remember my name either :p

I am pretty sure there will be a Ziggy in our future at some point :rolleyes:
