I realized I never made a blog post, and probably should have 😀 But Sally saw the forum post (and photos!), so I don’t have to worry about her and Hannah yelling at me 😉

First there was the Big Pig…and now, there is Little Pig :D

Introducing Gryphon (or, as the fancy paperwork says “Sovereign’s Heart of a Lion at SamRock”). He just turned 8 weeks, and we picked him up on Thursday. He flew like a champ–kept his kennel clean all the way here (he came from Arkansas), got out wagging his tail, and has been quite the little man ever since. He was super sleepy for the first half-day or so, but now that some of our fatigue is wearing off, though, his saltiness is coming out :D

I wasn’t sure how I felt about a white dog, but he sure is cute. He also likes dirt. Especially eating it. And rolling in it. But eating it is awesome.

So far, Momo likes him–follows him around and plays with him (until he gets too rough). What’s funny is, what means “play” in Dog…means “knock that shit off” in Cat.So there have been some frustrating conversations. I feel kind of bad for him, since several of his siblings were black, and about the same size Momo is, so it probably confuses the shit out of him why THIS “puppy” is sending him mixed messages. :D Here is one of their “games”:

Also, as of the other night…Gryphon has upped his game. Now, he enjoys HUMPING momo. So yeah, definitely channeling Sammy on that one 😀

As for the rest of the cats, Frank and Max are…indifferent? He’s there. They ignore him, mostly. And since they ignore him, he doesn’t even notice them. Finnegan Does Not Want (which I think is funny and a taste of his own medicine. I also think he’s pouting a bit, since he’s no longer the baby). He sits on the barstools and watches him, then jumps down, hisses/smacks/and leaves. Except when it’s food time. That is interesting enough to warrant getting closer.

Sadie also Does Not Want. She didn’t like being alone…but she doesn’t like THIS, either. She can now be within 2.5 feet of him without spazzing out, but that’s about it. They bonded in solidarity (SLIGHTLY) yesterday,since they had to go to the vet. I feel bad for Gryphon–he keeps trying to play with Sadie, and she’s like STFU. GO AWAY. I HATE YOU. AND YOU. AND ALL OF YOU. HATE DEVIL FACE. So, slow going. She hasn’t tried to kill him, but she’s not playing with him, either.

As of today, 6 days later…we’ve progressed to just normal hate face…not HATE DEVIL FACE. Gryphon has also upped his game here, as well, and now plays “bite Sadie’s tail”. Ah, a crowd favorite, to be sure.

Here are some pictures of our first couple of days:

“Help me! I am in prison!” (actually, he was very mild mannered and happy when we got him at the airport.)

Help, help! I

Bath time makes me sad :(

Pretending to like each other. Sort of. Kind of. Not really. Can we have treats now?
