He is a nice cat I guess. He follows me around and watches me a lot. Creepy! He likes to play, with MY toys, so I kind of play with him. I was trying real hard not to even acknowledge his presence, I hid in the other rooms hissing and growling and wouldn't even come to my mom the first night that he was here. Then my mom picked me up, smelling like him, and asked me if I would be nice to him and accept him into our family. She had tears in her eyes and I could feel Crystal's presence in the room and they were both asking me to let him in. I head-butted my mom (my special way of kissing her) to let her know that I understood her (and Crystal too), and that I would try.
My mom told me Scooby's story and I decided that I might be able to stand to have him around. Scooby has had a hard life until now. He is only about three months old and he was dropped off to fend for himself. That made me kind of sad, so I settled down on her lap so she could finish. She told me how he had been living at the vet's office (SCARY) until mom gave him a home. I wouldn't want anyone to have to live at the vet, so I made up my mind to accept him. I still give him a hiss and swat every now and then, just to remind him who is in charge here.
All in all, he isn't all that bad. We chase each other and play together (sometimes). I like to play with him, he has lots of energy and likes to run. The on;y problem I have now is that he can't go outside with me. Mom says he is to young and might get lost. I guess that would be a bad thing (insert evil cat smile). No, I wouldn't want him to get lost. That would make my mom sad again and that is just wrong! The house doesn't feel sad anymore and I don't want it to again! We all miss Cre very much, but it does help to have someone to play with. I will teach him everything that Crystal taught me and in a way Crystal will live again. That makes me very happy! Maybe this new cat thing wasn't such a bad idea after all. I am going to help Scooby start a blog and will post the link soon. Thank you for all of the nice posts and comments that everyone made. My mom is trying to read them all, but they made her cry and she stops and reads more later. It may take her a while but she will read them all. We all wish Cre the greatest success in heaven and we know that she is happy. Sometimes I can still feel her beautiful crossed eyes looking at me saying "I knew you loved me sucker!" I am glad she knows. Thank you again. The next post will be Scooby's first picture on my blog. TTYL
