Marcello is its name

Last week-end we decided finally to adopt another cat to get a "play"mate for Chiara.

Marcello is its name. It is a little male tabby cat (French: "tigré") of about eight weeks.

Here is his first public appearance.

I must admit that it is a whole lot of a changement - having one or two cats, especially when the second one is a kitten, a baby cat.

You have to protect everything and at the same time give enough space and toys to amuse themselves and let loose their energy.
Much more so because Marcello is a wonderful acrobat and - when awake - also a little quick devil: afraid of nothing.

For this purpose I created a "Dadizele" amusement park in the salon and on the sofas. Sorry no pictures here: it is not photographable.

Marcello is so curious that he even wants to know everything about a good Belgian trappist beer and then falls asleep like a log.

One of the funny things is to see how Chiara and Marcello gradually get used to one another after a first phase of "growling and clawing" (French: cracher) at each other.


Clicking on the thumbnails enhances the pleasure.
