The Story of Theo Part 2

theototalsnoozeIn Part 1 I told you about Muffin and how she went to her furrever home with Mom’s mom. After that, Theo came to live with us.

Mom & Dad got in the car and drove a long, long way, all the way up to Coeur d’Alene Idaho, where they met the Bengal breeder lady who had Theo. Theo was little, and cute, and a total bundle of spotted energy. Mom & Dad  somehow managed to get him into a kitty carrier, took him out to the car, and off they went! But they were hardly down the block before Theo started YOWLING! AND YOWLING! He DIDN’T WANT TO BE IN HIS CARRIER! YOWL!

Once they were on the freeways, they decided that they could let Theo out if he would stay mostly in the backseat or in Mom’s lap. He decided that the spot down by Mom’s feet where the cool air was blowing was a good spot, and took a nap.

Now here’s the funny part. Mom & Dad stopped for lunch at a sandwich place and Mom got turkey. At the first sniff of that turkey, Theo came alive and decided HE MUST HAVE TURKEY NOW PLEASE.  He turned into a growling little beast-monster, trying to walk down her outstretched arm to OM NOM NOM on her sandwich! It was so funny, he almost got the sandwich because Mom was laughing so hard! He was so little, but had this great big GROWL! He still growls when he has something good to eat.

Once they got home, we were properly introduced and I’ve tolerated the beast ever since… Next is MY story!!

The Cuteness

Do you want to see some of Theo’s baby pictures? I’m going to do it a little backwards and show you some pictures and next time I’ll tell you the story of when Theo came to live with us. My typist is a little tired tonight! (Why don’t they make keyboards more suitable for cat paws??)

theo_cute Here is Theo when he first came home. He was a cute little beast, and so very small! Even I thought he was cute, even though he was an obnoxious little kitten.
theo_action He was always attacking something. And he had some SHARP little teeth.

He’s all grown up now, but he sure was a cute kitten. Even a crusty old girl like myself had to admit that!
