Codee Joe

Tell me that's not cute
Here he is, the newest little member of the family ... and though I didn't think it possible over Casper, he's also the mouthiest.  This little fart has done nothing but mew since Snackers brought him home yesterday but he's been a good boy and used his litter box so that's always nice.  I picked out the name Cody, Snackers picked out the spelling Codee and Joe just kind of followed naturally for a middle name.  He seems to be a momma's boy because he's more snuggly when I'm holding him than he is for Snackers.

Piper is absolutely thrilled by him and wants to watch everything he does and follow him everywhere he goes.  She's behaving with him just like she did with Casper ... like a mommy.

Wet hair, just showered
Casper, on the other hand, is cautiously pessimistic.  His first reaction was to yowl and growl and hiss his head off.  Then he walked away and decided that he'd be fine if he just stayed on the bed where Codee couldn't get to him.  After about four or five hours he decided to come out and lay in the corner of the living room, as far from Codee and still in the same room as possible.  As he watched his every move his posture was relaxed but his eyes were all aglow with thought and contemplation.  Last night we locked Codee in the bathroom with his food, some special kitten milk, and his own litter box and Casper sat sentinel outside the bathroom door all night long just like I knew he would.  I think it's too soon to call as to whether or not Casper will warm up to Codee or decide to ignore him completely.  I do think it's safe to say, however, that violence will not be an issue.

Nothing ... again.  Played with the kitten and watched DWTS.  I know, I'm feeling so guilty.


  1. <3 kitties :)

  3. Grace: We now have two also. Three kids total. We're planning on getting one more puppy dog after we move and then we're done.

    Brandon: Younger huh? That's cool. I did just get carded buying cigarettes yesterday; it's been awhile since that has happened. Younger is goos, thanks! :)

  5. That is painful cute. Cute times ten. Oh, so cute. Here I gush.

  6. Two seconds after that picture was taken he laid down, right there on my shoulder, and went to sleep under my chin. I feel the overwhelming urge to ramble off some baby-talk now. lol
