Yep, God help me, another new cat

No one sleeps with the peace and relaxation of babies. Here is Fred sleeping. He doesn't look particularly comfortable with his head and shoulders hanging off the pillow like that, but he is sound asleep.

Being the youngest, you'd think Fred would be at the bottom of the pecking order. However, Fred is pretty much king of the roost through sheer charm and stubbornness. He has even inveigled the old toms Jack and Tom into playing with him. When Fred wants food, he demands first share. Fred is first to any bowl or plate; he owns an utterly voracious appetite. He climbs into the middle of the plate spreading his legs out as far as they will go, and growls at anyone who attempts to take a bite before he is finished. He is also a obstinate little cuss. We're not going to get along unless he learns some manners!

  1. Kittens are so charming, I would love to keep getting kittens, but they grow up to be cats. My husband has vetoed any more until the four we have move on. Our cats tend to live a long time, 2 are 15 years, with health problems, 1 is 14, and then the little one is 7 years old. So it looks like awhile before we have a new kitten.I'll guess I'll just have to enjoy others' pictures and posts. But I suspect, it will be you Fred trains not the other way around.
