The Captain

Last week we adopted a 6 month old kitten ~ this is my crack pot idea of a diet and exercise plan for our over weight Miss Kitten Britches (AKA Bellikins). The kitten was already named 'Kirk' for the famous Captain Kirk from Star Trek. He has a very bold personality and is always exploring wherever his kitten paws take him. We have decided to call him 'Captain', because it is more fitting than 'Kirk'. Also ~ Kirk is such a cuddly lil guy and he follows me around like a puppy dog when he's not engaged in a game of chase with Bellikins. I will post a picture of him soon.

Bellikins did not receive our new family member with open arms ~ she hissed, growled and snarled for about two days. He was so confused and couldn't understand why she didn't like him. Well, now, they are best buddies and are tearing around the house right now. Ahhhh ~ my exercise plan for Bellikins is coming to life ~ she's doing a lot of running around. But ~ here's the catch 22 ~ she's eating Captain's kitten food and he's eating her diet adult food!

Long as the Captain isn't wearing a red shirt...I think you're good.

Lace,
Bobby and I have 4. At times they hiss and spit at each other, but for the most part they are the best of friends. When I am having a bad day one or the other is on my lap or at my feet trying to comfort me.
