Marley: Well, my mom and dad brought Reggie home when I was just 1 year old. I wasn't quite sure what to make of him, but I quickly adapted and only hissed at him a total of two times. My mom tried to keep us separated for awhile, but that didn't really work because I would just meow at the door and try to get in to the room where they were keeping this little guy. So, my mom and dad just gave up, especially because living in a 2 bedroom apartment there aren't many options (also she did know that we could make each other sick, but hoped for the best). For the first few days I would just rush Reggie and tackle him whenever he came out of his room. My mom and dad thought this was pretty funny, but they still kept pulling me off of Reggie. Reggie got overwhelmed too at times and would hide under furniture that my big body couldn't fit under. But eventually after about 10 days I got used to him and realized he wasn't going anywhere and stopped tackling him every chance I got. Here are some pictures from our first week together. As you can see Reggie tried to raise his two paws at me trying to fend me off (didn't work, but he tried).
Also, I never did get sick from Reggie besides a minor eye infection that healed up quickly with Terramycin and antibiotics. Reggie never got sick either (Mom was very thankful for this because she has had sick kittens before and it just stresses her out too much).
Lastly, many of you out there have been likening us to Dragonheart and Merlin! We know all about them. Our mom found them several months ago while "googling" and has been reading their blog ever since. She got really excited because she saw how Dragonheart loved his brother and she was anxious to get Marley a brother too!! We don't mind being compared to them because they are the bestest kitties and live all the way in Deutchland, which our mom and dad visited a couple of months ago while on vacation....Marley = Dragonheart, aka a good kitty, and Reggie = Merlin, a little terror at times who hates baths!!!
Also, we are very excited that our Gizzy Quilt is on its way! It should be here Monday! Thanks Millie!!!
