There I wuz last Saturday in da Petco in Garland, playin' wiff my brudder Sparks, anudder orangie, when dis trio of ladies came in. It were Momma and her girls-- one is Travis' momma, da udder Maurice's... I decided to turn on da charm, made da squee worthy meow face, tried to stick my nose thru the holes in da plastic window, you names it, I tried it. My brudder wuz turnin' it on, too. But the lady from Feral Friends weren't there, so they hadda call her and come back on Sunday. After playin' and pettin' both us guys, they picked ME! They wuz sayin' it wuz cuz I wuz a lil bit bolder and dat in their ranchero that would come in handy. So inta da crate I went, and they went shoppin' fur evfun more kitty stuff than they had before! Oh boy, all that's fur me! Yippee!
My name usta be Turbo, cuz I's so fast! But they gave me a brand spankin' new moniker... Crockett! After Davy Crockett, hero of da Alamo! I thinks they gots a theme goin' or sumthin' with the names fur da orangies 'round here... I likes it! Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier! Crockett da Rocket!! Yep, it'll do...
Well, I got here and everybuddy is purdy nice. There's Travis, of course, and I took to him right away cuz he's orange like me and my Momma. He took off at furst, but I think he wuz skeered of da dawgs' excitement and Maurice's hissin'-- well, I hissed back at dat big black and white guy, I ain't no chiggen, and that mighta skeered him, too! But he came back and we's been playin' more and more ev'ry day. Maurice is still hissin', but I think he's startin' to come 'round. He came into da kitchen tonight and watched me and Travis play. Maybe he will join in sometime soon.
Da dawgs have quit bein' quit so intense, if ya gits my drift. Da furst day, I thought Whitley was gonna have palpitations, she were so excited! I knows I's cute, but really, Whit, calm down 'fore ya has a heartomatack! Finley just stared and stared...it were kinda creepy, but she's gotten ovfur it. Right now, we's both nappin' in Momma's lap together.
Everybuddy is real nice here, and I gets lots of holdin' time, which I luvs. Da bestest place to nap is on a person, at least dat's whut I thinks!
Here's some photos of me, everybuddy 'round here is a papparazzi or sumthin'-- it's click, click, click all day long!
Y'all come back, now, ya hear?
