Tortie Tuesday

Hey everybuddy! It's been awhile for Tortie Tuesday but I wanted to let you know the state of things around here ever since that wiggle butt, Lexi, moved in. For the first several days she was here, my sisfur, Angel, and I stayed out of that brat's way which wasn't so bad since we had good sunpuddles...
But then I started getting perturbed because she was always downstairs with my daddy so I started making my presence known which sent her in a tizzy...
Mommy has been asked why Lexi always has a leash on. Well, can you see why? She's a fast little burger so that gives our peeps 6 more feet of chance to catch her. Anyway, the other day I got hungry braver so I came all the way downstairs...
I had been about a foot from Lexi and hissed at her twice to let her know who's boss then I just sat back and watched Mommy try to keep her attention away from me. Her attention span is .236 seconds but she actually did pretty good. She doesn't get in so much of a tizzy anymore so we even enjoyed movie night together...
I was on Mommy for a bit too but left before she could reach her camera. Anyway, as of Sunday, Lexi no longer has her leash on in the house unless she gets in a tizzy again and chases us which has only happened once. She looks pretty harmless doesn't she?
Don't let that fool you! She's 100% Energizer puppy! She has come a long way in the week she's been here though. She had quite a few habits that needed to be changed and those are changing. As for her hogging Daddy's attention, well, he gives me lots of cuddles and lets me know I'm still his girl. He does the same for Angel but of course I know I'm his favorite even if he won't say it because I'm the Tortie!

Have a great Tortie Tuesday!

From what I gather, Lexi's breed is very trainable, both by humans and kitties! I guess you girls are too polite to whap her, and I would be too... but I know a certain tortie (who LOVES dogs) who wouldn't be above pulling out a whapping paw on a misbehaving puppy.

Lexi sure is cute even if she does get in a tizzy sometimes. Glad to hear she is learning the rules of your house. I bet those two hisses you gave her made it clear that you are in charge.

Nicki would whap her for you. 😁

But the integration looks like it's coming along very well!

You really need to give her a whap with those claws so she won't forget that cats are in charge. :)

Marvelous photos Da Momma took - y'all look gorgeous including the puppy. Patience with the puppy, please. Her first humans weren't as smart and loving as your humans are - puppy will learn.

Not to worry. You'll have her whipped into shape shortly. Cats rule. It's the way of things.
