Hi, I'm Adonis, the "surprise."

I'm living in Simba and Zoe's house. Actually, I hide in a cupboard in their house. They scare me. They're always hissing at me. Actually, Simba hisses at me and Zoe hisses at Simba. I don't know why they don't like me. :(

So I live in the cupboard until night when they're locked away with the people. This gives me the opportunity to stretch my legs and run all over the place. One night, I managed to flip the rug over in the livingroom. I wish I could have been there to see the look on everyone's faces when they saw the mess I created!

Last week I finally realized the brown guy was cool. I remember the night, there were a lot of loud booming sounds outside. I kept hearing scary sounds but the brown guy was really soothing to me. He brought me my nightly plate of soft food, pet me gently and tried to explain "fireworks" to me. For the first time ever, I came out and opened up. It was great being myself!

Turns out it was a great idea. Brown guy gave me a lot of pets and even brushed me. It was like heaven! I hadn't realized how much I missed human contact. Even scared kitties like me need love!

Now every night I make sure to show my appreciation to brown guy. He scratches me in the right places, rubs my ears, and massages my stiff muscles. I even let the girl pick me up and pet me sometimes. This morning was really embarassing though. She picked me up twice and each time I farted! I acted casual and tried to pretend like it was nothing. Thank god for fur, nobody can see me blush! It's probably all this soft food, I'm still getting used to it.

Now if only the other cats in the house would realize I'm no threat. I just want to sleep my share of the day away, eat and get pet once in a while. Is that too much to ask for?

Oh Adonis...you are most handsome...but then, all us guys are handsome aren't we? Introductions & adjustments are sometimes difficult, but you seem like a nice guy, so things will work out. As to the, um...uh...intestinal upset, yes sometimes a change in food can do that. You did the right thing, though. If it happens again, blame it on the humans!

It takes time to learn to trust. But you are a very handsome cat and you will get your share of brushing and food and love.

Good Boy Adonis. You get out and stretch a bit. You are so darned handsome and very lucky to be in the loving care of these two humans. I hope I get to meet you some time.
