Getting To Know Guido

Guido has been with us for a few months now and he's settling in nicely.  We're getting to know him, and he's getting to know us.

Guido is an incredibly sweet little cat.  He loves to purr, loves to have his chin squizzled, and is very fond of playing with string.

He also has wild moments every morning where he runs around the walls, trashing everything in his path. 

Every evening, Guido marches up to Target, smiles sweetly, and then bites him firmly in the neck.  They wrestle for a few minutes, and then Target huffs off.

They've started wrestling in the morning too, which is fun except for when they decide I am the purrfect battlefield divider. 

This morning each chose a side and ducked down.  Then they popped up and down, pawing at each other. 

It's fun to watch but whenever a paw slips, I'm the one that gets a claw.  

That's my role: collateral damage.

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Yep... the boys do that too, with lots of whapping the top of each other's heads.

Have a great day.

I am SO glad Target has Guido to play with. And that he's willing to play. I wish I could have the opportunity to be in a home with more than one kitty sometimes. My girl is too old to tolerate anyone else now but down the road, I will have two.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Sometimes in the late evening we have a five minute war with lots of whapping, chasing and smacky paws.
Five minutes later we're curled up asleep and mum's wide awake!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

It is so nice that he is quite at home and having so much fun!

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

SO nice that he's settled and keeping everyone on their toes :)

Collateral damage - too funny:) You made us laugh. Mom says she usually gets her feet trapped between a good game of bitey face, and she seems to think she needs to keep all of her toes:)

Nice to learn more about Guido. He sounds like a fun kitty.

Very handsome! I bet my Lil' Ripper will look like that when he grows up!

Kjelle Bus said...

I run around like you Guido in the middle of the night :)

Cindy said...

Guido is so handsome! I had to break up a fight last night between Buster and Sammy! Buster had poor Sam backed in a corner...not a good thing to do to a cat! lol

Whisppy said...

Great that Target and Guido are wrestling and having fun. Where's Au in all these?

Katnip Lounge said...

Sounds just like Sweet Pea and Rupert! Although I escape being the battlefield, thank Cod.
Guido is such a great addition, I bet Au is relieved to have a distraction for Target.
"squizzle"--what a wonderful word!

BeadedTail said...

Sounds like never a dull moment in your house! Kitties are the best entertainment ever! Well, besides birdies!

Guido, Mama says you can pass for Buster's twin. He can be very playful too.
