He 'steals' the Big One's lumpy water
He 'snags' the Big One's chair
He 'steals' quality time with the bird TV
He even 'claims' the Big One's lap when Miki isn't there
But THIS is HIS place
He doesn't need his skills as a thief to get here
Small One raised him in her arms
Nursed him back to health when he was a sick kitten
holding him in her arms for hours
He IS good at helping make the bed
All in all, I'm thinking Lisa's last of 4 little rescue kittens turned out quite acceptable in spite of his evil, sneaky, pushy, thieving, big old bad ManCat ways. Heh! He fits in with the other three guys quite well. He just has a couple three pounds on the others. Still the head ManCat, Buddy Bear sends Rowdy packing when the time calls for it.
Lisa and Me? We just love him, and hug him, and call him Heathen! Rowdy will be 8 years old in May of this year (2011).
A NOTE here: These are some very old pictures of the little guy. He is definitely a big ManCat now. I don't think he knows it though.
As always, I feel loved. So does Lisa.
