Princess Peno still rules the roost

Of the two cats...
...Peno is the one who's handled the new addition with the most grace. Of course, as I mentioned, this isn't her first rodeo. In fact, she was far more put out about Rupert than she was about Burton.

With Burton, it's almost as if she just shrugged her shoulders and sighed in resignation. It helps that Burton is pretty good with her. When Rocky was a kitten, he was an absolute nightmare, but for the most part, Burton leaves her alone. When he does get in her face, she's been quick to give him a good thump and put him in his place, so he's figured things out pretty quick. And why bother with the cranky old girl, when you've got a Ginger Nut to chase?

I have caught her grooming him a time or two, and while he hasn't snuggled up with her yet, it's not uncommon to find them snooze the afternoon away under the futon together - not touching, but no more than an inch or two apart.

Little Burt has slipped into our lives like he was meant to be.

I know what you mean about Peno's expression: when we got Dug, I *swear* Jetsam just shook his head as if to say, "Whatever."

You're all lucky!! I think it's so sweet when they groom each other.

Cats age and they get very wise I think. THey seem to recall and remember. I think Uncle Tank has always liked bringing up kittens . Once they are cats he seems less enchanged though
