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)!

I am so glad you found Rio. He is a handsome young boy and I think that is good for Sukki as well. Rio will entice Sukki to be more active which is good. I love the pictures of him and I am filled with joy that you found that sweet boy. Love you Sukki and Rio. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

Rio is beautiful. I have always brought in new kittens every few years. It's good for the older ones- keeps them young. My current 8 cats range from 12 down to 8 months. I also tend to bring in two at a time. My 8 month old boys and my 3 year old boy and girl were each littermates. In addition, my oldest is from the same feral colony as my two youngest, so they may be related.

Congratulations! We introduced Ringo (4 months) to Benny (age 14) and they became best buddies until Benny died at age 20. Rio is a handsome guy and we're glad he's making Sukki happy.
