|This is a mating we are quite
excited over. Red's personality is so outgoing
and so "happy", combining it with the sweet
disposition of CeeCee, is just something we wanted,
very much to do. Of course, the potential
color combinations won't be bad either!! <G>
It has been a LONG while, since I
got pictures of Piper!! Not sure exactly why, but him
being an "only child" may be part of it. A lot of "work"
getting out the camera, etc. to take the pictures of one kitten.
<G> In any case, sorry for the delay!!
As can be seen in his pictures,
Piper has grown and is doing quite well. He and his mother
are now at work (in my office) and he has pretty much taken
over. Mom still tolerates some of his adolescent behavior,
but you can tell there are times when he gets on her nerves.
At those times, he is on my lap, or sitting on my desk helping
me with the keyboard, mouse, etc... And YES, he is a lot
Piper is just a cutie, with many of
his dad's attributes... and a few of his mother's better one's!!
Well... Three weeks old and he is
out!! Mom does not seem to be too concerned this time,
previously she kept her kittens "in" for at least 5 - 6 weeks,
but Piper is either head-strong, or she has learned to not fight
the small stuff. <G> A little wobbly on his feet, but he
is looking around "his" area just fine.
Next we'll see if he attacks the
broom and vacuum, like his father!! <G> He already
"squawks" like he does!!
Sorry it has taken so long to get
pictures up, but a lot has been happening this past week and
finding the time has been difficult. With that in mind, I
will hopefully be compensating by posting more often, in the
Meet CeeCee and Red's, first
Grand Champion, "Piper Alpha", Red Adair's first baby.
Ok... the "Grand Champion" aspect may be a bit premature,
but...we have high hopes!! <G> At 11 days old, his eyes
are open (they've actually been open since day 7), but more
startling, to us at least, is he just under 1 lb !! His
face is very much like his dad's, a bit round, and he is,
without question, quite "stocky". While he will cry at
times, he is not a whiner when being handled and the look in
those eyes, is one of curiosity, as he is being handled and sees
Well... CeeCee and Red Adair have had their
baby... A brown classic (?) tabby with white feets, boy...
one. Yes, you read that correctly, ONE baby!!
Apparently, CeeCee needs to spend more time with Eleanor, but
for now, she and her baby are doing well and we are looking
forward to seeing how he progresses.
Pictures coming soon!!
