I Met Him!

So, I met my brother Dobby! He was sleeping and I went up to him and sniffed him and checked him out. Then, when he woke up, I looked at him some more. I hissed a little, and he hissed back! Then I just kept comin' back around to look at him, and he'd look at me. Then I just sprawled out on the floor, and he went back to sleep. That's it so far, I'm just busy with my regular routine and haven't paid that much attention to him. He's boring. He's been sleepin'. But Mom says that he had a busy day yesterday, with the travelin', and when he gets rested and used to our house he'll be ready to play with me soon.

Here he is with Mom. He was lickin' her nose, even though it doesn't show in the picture. He also likes to lick Daddy's nose. Since I don't lick faces, it makes me wonder if he's really Skeezix's brother and not mine. ;)

I'm glad that it was only a little hissing. That's normal. It's good of you to leave him alone until he's ready to get closer to you. You'll be chasing each other all over the house in no time.

Merlin, it sounds like you are doing GREAT with your bruther! I hissed a LOT at Sophie at first, so don't feel too bad about it. She hissed at me too, but now as you can see, we are friends and we sleep together and play and EVERYTHING! I think you and Dobby are going to be GREAT bruthers.

Merlin, what a cute little brother. You remember how Missy took on when KC came here to live.

Would you believe they are grooming each other now, just a little, but it's a start. And lying near each other, not touching, but close. It just takes time. And you can tell they really look for each other. You and your little brother will develop such a bond, but there may be some hissing first.
