14 years apart and good friends

Sport and Watson have become friends, good friends actually.  Lots of play which largely involves Watson running and Sport reaching out a paw to snag him.  Sometimes there is wrestling and belly biting.

Watson is highly interested in food and would like us to share our dinner with him but we are not as tolerate as Sport is.  Even though he has doubled in size he can still fit under the sofa with ease.

You wake up on a Wednesday morning, thinking about having 2 days left of summer camp left to teach, and little do you know that by noon you will have a Watson in your life.

Some teachers down the hall from me heard a kitten meowing during the camp morning and looked outside to find this little guy.  No one wanted to take him home, so after calling Dale at work I put him in a box and he was ours!  A vet visit Thursday afternoon gave us the all clear health wise.  Watson is between 5 and 6 weeks old and weighs 1 lb.  He is energetic, likes to snuggle (for short periods of time - there is too much to see to be still for long) and has a lovely purr.

Snoopy is in love.  Between the kitten and 5 new chicks he could not be happier.  The rest of the pets are either peeved or indifferent.
