We welcomed a new family member this week, 6 week old Spirit, a kitten found at the school in West Palm Beach where Geri teaches. He appears to be a short-hair Persian/Himalayan type kitten. We’ll be more able to tell once he’s a little older, if he keeps his blue eyes and sweet round doll face. He has the chocolate points at the ears, tail and nose, and white slippers atop chocolate paw pads. Spirit is absolutely loving, wonderfully social and was litter-trained in literally just a day. He is a dream!
Silverthorn, mascot of the Spiral and the kitten Dan abandoned along with the rest of us, is two years old now and has taken the big brother role with Spirit. They bash and banter then snuzzle and have a stop at the food bowls together. Spirit has also given Silverthorn something other than Midnight to torment. Midnight is 15 years old (16 in 6 months) and did not take kindly to Silverthorn’s playful ways. He doesn’t care much for Spirit either, but simply grumbles and walks away from his pouncing. Midnight is quite content just being a mamma’s boy and would rather curl up behind me, ignoring all the other goings-on in the house. So long as Spirit is perched on my shoulder, Midnight is happy ^_^
But, all in all a super sweet addition to the happy cat family!
