Merry Christmas Eve...

Since this is Rio's first Christmas, Sukki decided to read him a story to help him understand the holiday...

Rio was fascinated by the Christmas story and couldn't wait to put out cookies for Santa...Knowing Rio has a voracious appetite, my wise and wonderful Sukki kept a close eye on the cookie plate...

And since Rio believes he is always "a very good boy", he was so excited to see what toys Santa might bring; but like all youngsters, Rio grew impatient waiting for the magical visit....

No matter what your age, we hope you all have a fun, captivating Christmas Eve like our darling Rio!

Introducing Rio...

Meet Rio, my new baby and Sukki's little brother...The first photo I published on this blog almost 12 years ago was of my 3 girls, Calle, Halle and Sukki, in a box, so I thought this was the purrfect introduction for Rio as well. 

Rio is a sweet, silly boy, about 10 months old; he was rescued from the pound by the Texarkana Animal League and I was so lucky they chose me to be his Mommy!

Rio loves to bring his toy rats to play with in the tub just like Calle used to do.

Rio is growing so fast, I think he will be a big boy soon!

Sukki and Rio love each other.
Sukki was sad as an only kitty and Rio has been a welcome addition to our home and our hearts.

Sukki will be 15 in February and Rio will be 1.
I've never had kitties with such a large age difference before, but these two are a good fit...Rio is all kitten and everything is a game for him, so he has certainly made Sukki more active and I believe she helps him calm down on occasion as well.

They enjoy cuddling together on their heated blanket, their toys (cat dancer and a butterfly that flutters around are their favorites), chasing each other, and of course, nip (Sukki has her pink nip cigar in this photo)!
