Following all good advice, I had intended
to introduce Tizzy and Fred slowly.
Best laid plans......
No sooner had I set the cardboard shelter
carrier down in the apartment, out popped
the baby! Poor Tiz. In an instant his sedate
"only cat" life changed forever. Freddie
immediately got into everything Tizzy thought
was his alone. Litterbox, water bowl, napping
spots,toys, nothing was sacred. What Fred didn't
poop in, lick or sleep in he marked with a rub
from his little gray chin.
I heard a thunder of hoofbeats and thought,
"Omigod, Tizzy's trying to kill the baby!!"
Looked up to see a frantic Tizzy zoom past
with Freddie hot on his heels.
More excitement than dear TZ had seen his
entire life that far. At least I knew little
Fred could take care of himself.
