A New Friend

My dad left yesterday after visiting for a week, and he and Melly got along swimmingly. At first she wasn't entirely sure what to make of him...


...but she eventually decided he was ok. Apparently, she visited Dad every night around midnight, sitting on his chest and staring at him until he woke up and scratched her ears.



On the last night Dad was here, Scarlett grudgingly gave him the seal of approval.

That first photo of Melly is funny, but we're glad she warmed up to your dad in the end. Oh Scarlett, you are the queen of grumpy faces. :-)

Mom says she thinks we cats know who is a blood relative by scent or something. I am much quicker to warm up to close relatives than to friends.

LOL! Scarlett's grumpiness reminds us of our "angel" Annie. :-)

Melly, we're sure your grandpa loved being woken up for scritches every night. Ha!

Kitties are very cautious about approving visitors, even if they are relations.

Grandpas give good scritches! We're glad your mom keeps having more family over to give you two extra attention this summer!
