Meet Floki, Our Newest Addition


I felt a little bad Sunday after we went up to my sister-in-law’s vet’s office to look at kittens that needed a home and then left without one (If you didn’t read my last post you can find it here). Rose felt bad too and called her sister and asked about seeing the second male Siamese kitten.

The two cats were being fostered and Felice chose the one she thought was more friendly and brought that one in to be fixed. Rose wanted to see the other one so the foster parent agreed to meet us with the other kitten at the animal hospital, where the first kitten was still staying,

When she arrived, Felice put a ribbon around the neck of the fixed cat so we wouldn’t confuse them and then took both kittens out. The big gold cat was there to greet us again and was a little bit like Baby Huey.

After checking out both kittens, Rose came to realize that the first kitten we saw was the better choice and he was not sickly like she first thought. It was like she was seeing him for the first time and was convinced he was the one, so we put him in the carrier and headed home after briefly considering taking his brother too. Of course, we knew we were pushing the limit with four cats, especially since we are only allowed two.Kitten in carrier

On the way out we had to pass by this scene, which was very hard to do.

We were happy to hear that this girl’s potential adopter is not as bad as we thought. While she will be an outside cat, we were told that she will be living on a farm with other outside cats that are well taken care of. Apparently, there is a part of the barn that is set up for them. I sometimes think Frankie might be happier living in a place like that where he can come and go as he pleases. I then see him lying upside-down on our bed and I think maybe not.

The kitten cried almost all the way home, and it was a long trip. I heard Siamese cats are very vocal and this confirms it.

I thought introducing a kitten would be less stressful for our cats because kittens are not a threat. I noticed when we introduced Puck, a kitten, Chris was happy to have him but when we got Frankie, an adult cat, Chris was not happy about that.


This time Chris and Puck did a little growling at the kitten but were mostly tolerant. Frankie, however, wanted the kitten gone. He spent his time hissing at him and trying to whack him. Fortunately, the kitten was small enough to get into places where Frankie couldn’t reach him.

I wanted to tell the story in one post but preparing the pictures and videos is time-consuming, and I have very little spare time these days. I will finish this tomorrow, hopefully. I will say that as I write this, Frankie is mostly over being mean to the kitten but he is still jealous and needs attention.

    YAY!!!!!! The little Siamese named Floki is precious……..I do hope the others will have some fun with him after he gets used to his surroundings and THEM. I hope he settled in and didn’t cry all night – I think Siamese are usually pretty “vocal” !! Bless you for adding to your family…………………

      He slept with us the last two nights. I think that needs to stop before it becomes a problem. Also, I published this post and it didn’t include the last paragraph and a photograph for some reason. You might want to look again in case you missed it.

        I always wished Sammy would sleep with us but he never has! Go figure…..if you want them there they aren’t interested – and if you don’t want them there they won’t bother! Your little guy probably is lonely….. (sniff sniff). 🙂 On my way back to see more of your post……….

    welcome to your furever home Floki :o) I agree with you to take one and to look at those who have to stay is heartbreaking… I felt the same as we picked Easy… I even checked my bank account but Mark said: listen dudette we CAN’T HAVE 9 dogs… yes… true… but sad…

    you’ll probably be in for lots of jealous adult cat behaviour over the coming weeks, but they’ll come around ^^

    Aaaaaaaw He’s a cutey. And what a set of lungs he has. MOL Glad things are going well. And yes, kittens are much easier to transition with adult cats.

    Luv ya’

    Congratulations on your new baby! Floki is a cutie. I am sure everyone will get along eventually as long as you take it slow.

    That final photo is so precious. We see that y’all are not believers in a slow introduction. We always try to do that, but we are never successful. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
