Simba said I could take over the blog today to tell you a little about myself.
I have lived with my first Mom (Simba's human sister) for 10 whole years, and love her very much. We were very good companions for each other. However, it turns out that her brand new husband is allergic to cats, and also she was having a hard time with my bad night time habits of waking her up all the time. So my grandparents have become my new Mom and Dad. After the wedding, they brought me on a big plane in my carrier to my new home. I was quite a trooper on the trip. The only bad part was going through the security when I had to be taken out of the carrier, and was pretty frightened. Other than that I behaved perfectly. In the end I was in my carrier for about 6 hours!
I like my new home very much. There is lots to explore, and great bird tv and chipmunk tv at all the windows. I am very curious and have explored everything.
Simba and I got introduced to each other within a few hours and we are getting along pretty well. Simba is a bit less sure about things than me, but you can see from these pictures that things are going pretty well.
The only (very) difficult part is that our eating habit are so very different: Simba never overeats, no matter how much food is available, and likes to have his food out all day. I have to be given only the right amount, no matter how much I beg for more, because I am really a little piggie disguised as a kitty and I gobble down everything in sight very fast. The humans are trying to work out a system that will work for both of us. Also right now Simba seems rather nervous about eating and so is not eating very much. This has them a little worried.
My new Dad even packed my favorite bed to bring, as well as my favorite pink blanket. My bed is set up in the kitchen and the first few nights at least I am sleeping in the kitchen. The humans say they will play it by ear whether to let me come and sleep on the bed or not. For now, that is Simba's sanctuary for the night- time hours and I have been sleeping well in the kitchen with an extra litterbox in there for me to use.
You can see in this last picture how "at home" I feel after only 2 days!
