Quint’s influence – 2014 © Colehaus Cats

My mom says I’m influencing my baby sister. What fun! She’s getting good at tussling and chasing things and bunny kicks. And she takes the gold in afternoon napping. I think my job here is done.

And good thing. Whew! She could wear a Mancat like me out without the extra energy boost I get from Dad’s morning coffee! I’m not slurping here, I swear! I’m just ever so quickly sniffing the roasty aroma. My sister won’t know. I don’t want to influence her to do bad things.

  1. We know you are trying so hard but remember, lil ones always want to do what the big ones are doing. And they are always watching.

  2. Is the pupil overtaking the teacher ? Purrs

  3. Well done Viola – it just goes to show that Quint will be useful for showing you all the tricks he knows and he doesn’t even realise you’ve learned a lot from watching him already!.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. Just what Viola doesn’t need! She’ll be really lively now 🙂

    Hope you are not teaching Viola any other bad habits. She certainly is turning her kitten cuteness into lady-cat loveliness. We love how she has some of Mom ZuZu’s orange in her furs. Purrlease stop by our 2nd blogoversary and giveaway post today. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
