Today our little Floki turns one year old.
We don’t know when his exact birthday is but, if I remember the story correctly, Floki, his brother and one or more kittens from another litter were found in a box in a Walmart parking lot on Memorial Day last year. I subtracted his estimated age when we adopted him on the Fourth of July and came up with April 18.
I thought I would show some highlights from the past year.
Below is the picture my sister-in-law sent us to let us know she had kittens available. We don’t know for sure if this is Floki or his brother.
This is the first known picture of Floki at the vet where we came to see him and other kittens.
This was one of his competitors.
Here he is with his brother and another cat. We wanted to take them all.
Here is Chris meeting Floki. This went better then when he met Frankie.
Below is our first vet visit.
Chris shows him who’s boss.
Floki takes to the cat tunnel.
And he turns out to be a daredevil.
He makes friends.
And discovers new heights.
All while finding his place in the group and in our hearts.
Our little kitten Floki is not so little anymore. They grow up so fast. Before we know it, Floki may just be the biggest cat in the house.
Here was Floki on the Fourth of July, the day we adopted him.
Sometimes I feel like our cats are married. If they are not fighting, they are sleeping together.
Chris and Floki
While Rose and I were busy preparing our Thanksgiving meal, our cats were busy relaxing. I was very envious of Floki napping on our bed while I was working.
I was going through pictures and came across this super-cute picture of Floki from July. Aren’t kittens adorable?
The other day I say Chris lying on the bed with Floki and the two of them were washing each other. I got my camera and started recording before the affection turned to fighting. The fighting was short and, following a brief period of tension, they both fell asleep.
I’m trying to picture humans doing that. Imagine you are in bed with your spouse being all lovey-dovey when suddenly, a big fight erupts. Fifteen seconds later the fight is over and, after a brief moment of tension, you fall asleep in each others arms. Can’t imagine it? Me either.
Here is the video I am talking about, but please forgive the quality. The camera’s auto focus was being a little crazy. Next time I will have to use the manual setting, if I can find it.
Like all kittens, our little Siamese Floki is a ball of energy that is busy all the time, so a photo of him during a calm moment is a pleasure to look at.
Cats can be very cute when they nap, like Floki when he sleeps all stretched out. Puck is not so cute with his eye boogers but we just can’t get rid of the eye issues around here.
Our kitten Floki just loves playing with his mouse. Actually, it isn’t even his mouse. Chris took a liking to it long ago and now Floki thinks it’s his. He plays with other toys to but this particular catnip mouse gets a lot of play time. It seems it is always in a different place when I see it.
Here’s a video from a few weeks ago of Floki playing with the mouse..
