This is Fiona, Ali's little sister.  She was actually chosen to be adopted first.  Fiona's Mom-to-be heard from her sister-in-law about a litter of four all-black kittens that she was fostering for the shelter and decided to adopt two fo them.  Unfortunately for him, Fiona's brother got too sick to be adopted and the Mom chose Ali instead.  Little Fiona is about five months old now and into everything.  She is very smart and has learned to sit up, shake paws and give high fives for treats.  She does love her food.  Fiona adheres to the kitty rule that everything she can get her paws on is a toy and that includes Ali.  Fiona loves to cuddle with her Mom, but she has an unfortunate habit of chewing on her Mom's hand while she is cuddling.  This can get quite painful for Mom, who hopes that this is a kittenish behavior that Fiona will eventually grow out of.  I hope so, too.

                                           Fiona loves to chew on Mama's hand.
                                           To her the Mama tastes quite grand.
                                                 Mama says, "Ouchie!"
                                                 But doesn't get grouchy,
                                           For Fiona purrs while chewing her hand.

Fiona, the trick is, you has to nibble an then lick it all better. This makes Moms happy. But if she shouts OUCH, you has to STOP. I don't amember now, but I fink my foster momma taught me that.

Hello Fiona, it's lovely to meet you. I think hands are tasty too!

Daisy said...

Another secret is to stop biting before you get OUT OF CONTROL! A few little bites are OK though.

I know how tempting it is to chew on Mama's hand - but like the limerick says - mama's say ouchies!
That's when we gotta stop!
