kitten-sittin'

WooHoo! I have had the opportunity to "kitten-sit" the cute and busy Mr. Tumnus while Offspring #1 is visiting her boyfriend Doug's family up in Lacey, WA.

Mr. Tumnus snoozed with me last night and awakened me this morning with a wet, slobbery kitten kiss. (I'm hoping his kitten lips weren't wet from toilet water... Nah, the lid was closed.)

Marble (our cat of many years) has unfortunately not rolled out the welcome mat for Tumnus, so this morning Offspring #2 and I let Mr. Tumnus socialize with Simon the Neighbor Cat (who is much more laid back than Marble).



This afternoon, Mr. Tumnus amused himself by watching our big orange fish. (I think he was doing the necessary calculations to remove the fish from the tank and have a snack.)



Offspring #1 returns this evening, and I'm betting Mr. Tumnus will be greeting her with one of those wet, slobbery kisses...

Mr. Tumnus is just too cute. You can almost see the mental wheels turning as he contemplates that fish tank.

He is some precious, as we like to say around here.

He is so cute, and getting so big. Great pics of him and Simon.

Just make sure to check the fish tank before he goes home!
