That's Not a Dog!

This is my brother Spike.  When I first met him, I thought he was a dog.  I had never met a cat before and I have been around dogs much smaller than him.  Spike is twenty pounds.  I did not realize it at the time, but Spike did not like me when we first met.  I thought he was being playful when he growled and swatted at me.  I pounced and bounced in front of him waiting for him to play.  I could not figure out why he would not play with me.  I kept thinking to myself, "What a weird dog.  He does not even know how to play."  My parents kept calling him a cat.  Now I know cats are very different from dogs.  Spike likes me now.  We take naps together all the time.

Two Weeks In

Here I am two weeks after being adopted by my family.  I was still getting used to everything.  As you can see, I do not have much belly hair.  My new human parents are realizing I need a doggy sweater because I do not have much fur to keep me warm.  This was March of last year so it was a little chilly.  At this point, I still did not know what blankets were for.  My human parents would put a blanket on me and I would squirm out.  In about a month, though, I started to realize how cozy blankets can be!
