Scout



Scout was a single kitty litter all by himself. SS&SMom saw him when he was only two days old and fell in love with him. When he was eight weeks old in 2005, he came to live with Shaggy and Scooby. Neither of them were particularly thrilled with this little bundle of energy, but they tolerated him, Shaggy more than Scooby. Scout wanted to play with the big kitties, but his idea of play often included tail pouncing, and still does, for that matter. Both Shaggy and Scooby will wrestle with Scout now, but sometimes it gets a little rough between Scooby and Scout. Then Shaggy steps in and puts stop to it. Also living in the house are a number of guinea pigs. Scooby and Shaggy have always ignored them, but Scout was very interested in them from the beginning. At first there were fears that he wanted to hunt them, but the most he has ever done is give one of them a little fwap on the head with his paw. The piggies don't like it, but it doesn't hurt them. It looks like Scout just wants to play, but he is never left alone with them unless the tops of their cages are securely on.

Scout likes to watch the piggies,
He plays with them, too, but it's no biggie.
He'll fwap a head,
It must be said,
But he has never harmed a single piggy.

What a cute picture ! When my son was a little boy we had a dog, a cat and a ginea pig. Guess who was the boss ? It was of course the little piggy ! He told them how to behave ! We had a lot of fun watching this trio !

We would not want to just lie there! We would bat at them--all in fun, of course!

How cute! Oscar would lie there too. He would bap them a little but that would be it, if he even did that much. We have two pet rats so he's used to small critters in the house.

Those piggies we have are fun to watch. The squeek REALLY loud when the fridge opens because they know thats where the carrots & parsley come from.
Thank you for the limerick Karen Jo!

That's cute. We've never seen that picture. We had guinea pigs and the cats loved piggy play time.
