Making Friends Friday.

Found napping near Olivia, Viola says, Look! I’m napping with a big cat!”

We’ve seen Viola snuggled close to Miss Newton (but not touching) whose coloring is very, very similar to Zuzu’s. Maybe it was a mistake, the Viola snuggling close part, not the similar color part, but Miss Newton didn’t seem to mind Viola too much. Hopefully, we’ll have a camera nearby next time, to capture Viola near Miss Newton, not Miss Newton close to Zuzu, though if that ever happened, what a great day that would be!

Probably as no surprise, Tessa spends most of her day on high things while growling at Viola when the little one is out in the main part of the house. But for all the noise, Tessa sure keeps a close eye on her. Tessa jumps from chair to chair, chair arms to chair backs and onto the short wall and back again depending on where Viola is scampering off to. She can’t take her eyes off her! Secretly, we think Tessa is curious about Viola, just not enough to actually jump down and check her out on her level up close. Silly girl!

  1. Tessa will come around. It sounds like she’s too curious not to! Glad Viola is fitting in so well already to the general population.

  2. It does seem that Tessa is curious about Viola. Paws crossed for a peaceful integration with all, in time. 🙂

  3. That second photo is just too funny. 🙂

  4. We think they will be great buddies when they get over the sniffing and watching of each other phase. Tessa may find she has a shadow!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. we will do that here too – gotta keep an eye on those little boogers. 🙂

  6. That is just too cute. Only a matter of time and they will be inseparable we think. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Tessa is definitely showing lots of interest in Viola. Hopefully it won’t be long before we find them snuggling together. 🙂

  8. oh they will all fall in love with her eventually!xx Speedy

  9. I hope each day is more fun for all of them. It’s taken almost three years for my gang to get used to Meredith. That ;means they don’t hiss at her when they see her. lol

  10. Viola has the cutest, most inquisitive kitten face. We hope that eventually all the previous kitties come to know and love ZuZu and Viola. We know that is a tall order, and it has never happened at our house. Good luck! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  19. ooooh! Kitten in the General Pop! Mayhem at 11…

  20. Time will show they will be best friends xxx

  21. Tallia has done the same with our mini-Schnauzer “Sophie”. It first Tallia didn’t know what to make of her and would arch her back, growl and hiss. For several days she played “tough kitty” with the weird looking cat (actually a dog). Put she slowly let her guard down as Sophie was very patient with the busy kitty. Fast forward, they now play most of the day together and have an absolute blast. When playtime ends it’s not unusual to see them hop into the same chair exchange a little cleaning and then nap.

  22. You go, Viola! We know you’ll have the entire household in your little paws in NO time!

  23. Hey, you never know what those lil tots might do. Watching carefully is definitely a wise move.

  24. It is so much fun to watch a little one stake out furends and forge alliances.
    Our Einstein is branching out to play with anycat who will give him a run around!

  27. Viola…how precious and tiny and dear and delicate and again, precious you are. I was always looking first for news of you, you dear little girl.

  28. Very cute picture of Viola and Olivia ! We hope that Tessa will become more friendly with Viola very soon ! Purrs

    • Tessa is getting better with Viola. Now it’s Zuzu she can’t stand. Zuzu isn’t terribly fond of Tessa either, but we have lots of patience. This will be a long process.
