Ricky - Week One

...You're getting sleepy, very sleepy....no, wait...you're getting me treats!...
Hey! Hi! Remember me? Ricky? I'm the new kid in O Hi O. I'm learning the lingo around here. Did you know that I have 'rents? I do! And I have sibs! And they don't like me all of the time. But sometimes they do, but sometimes they don't, I get confused and I am learning how to "read signals" like "Hissssssssss" means "back off buddy" and nose touches means it's OK to proceed. I also learned that the dog that lives here is pretty OK, even though he's scared of me. HA! The 'rents say that I am full of energy and that I am a lover! That's good, right? Learning the ropes is hard, but you know what? -  I like it here and I think I'm gonna' stay!

You're as smart as you are cute Ricky...After all these years Theo still hasn't learned that the hissing sound means that his brothers might be a little torked off...

Shaggy and Scout said...

We're glad you like it there! Diamond doggie is a cool critter. He just hasn't seen a little kitty in such a long time his doggie brain doesn't know what to do!

Tina T-P said...

Concatulations Ricky, on your new home. Yes, your mamma is right, a very magic thing happens in a 'rent's heart when they find "the one" to replace the OWCB. There are big paws to fill, but it looks like you're up to it. Welcome! T.

Forever Foster said...

Hey there handsome! You're doing real good learning the rules. It took me a long time! Sending some great big smoochy purrs for you, your sibs and your 'rents.

The Crew said...

Katie Isabella said...

Ricky, you'll be a big boy and fell of self confidence and your sibs will see that. xox

TK and Squashies said...

We are so glad things are going well, Ricky. You are a very luck mancat.
Watch those hisses, they are usually followed up by a soft-paw-swipe.

I wanted to stop by and say thank you for your support of Squashies. You are very dear to us!

Hi Ricky,
It's good to hear you're settling in. Soon things will be calmer. It just takes a little time. We love your sweet face.
Hang in there and get lots of treats.

Hi Ricky
Learning the ropes is hard work.
We understand.
You need lots of treats to keep up the strength to learn all those ropes.
Glad the first week went so well.

Welcome, Ricky. Being the new cat is hard, I know. I used to be the one doing all the hissing, but now we all get along. I am sure that you will learn to fit right in very quickly.
