I just love kitten pictures, don't you? This is Reggie at three weeks old. He was born April 28, 2008 at Hairlessdreams Cattery.

Reggie is very curious and just has to check everything out. Here he is trying to figure out what is making the strange noise in the microwave.

Now he knows what was making the strange noise. He got a bite, but didn't seem to impressed with the popcorn. Reggie is the little rebel. He hates his baths and he hates being rubbed down afterward. He yells bloody murder the whole time. Reggie was adopted when Marley was one year old. Marley only hissed at him twice. The Mom and Dad tried to keep them separated for a while, so they wouldn't share any nasty germs and so they could get used to each other gradually. Marley was having none of this. He would meow and meow at the closed door between him and Reggie and try to get the door open. Mom and Dad finally just gave up and left the door to Reggie's room open. At first, Marley would pounce Reggie whenever he saw him and the Mom and Dad would separate them if they thought Reggie was getting too scared, but this didn't last long. Marley really only wanted to play and Reggie figured this out pretty quickly. Reggie also quickly figured out that he could get into small places where Marley wouldn't fit and this is what he did when he had enough kitty wrestling. Marley and Reggie really love each other. When Reggie got back from his long trip to the vet for neutering, Marley was calling out to him before he even got back into the house. Reggie started calling back and couldn't get out of the PTU fast enough.  Reggie loves to play fetch with his mousie.  He will go fetch the mousie as many times as he can get one of his humans to throw it for him.

                                     Reggie is a very curious cat.
                                     His favorite question is, "What is that?"
                                            He jumps up to see
                                            What it can be,
                                     And he's sometimes rewarded, this curious cat.

Reggie is a really cool cat, but how can he NOT BE IMPRESSED BY POPCORN! Honestly! Popcorn is AWESOME.
Well, as long as he and Marley get along.
Great Limerick and story.

Reggie and Marley are a perfect match, they look so cute together. The limericks are perfect for each one of them especially the one where both are featured.

Oh no. You shouldn't have shown our female human that kitty-picture. Now she wants one.

(Who can blame her).
