Tortie Tuesday

Sweet Pea here!

Delilah is the current Head Tortie around these parts, but I'm turning one-year old on September 19th, so I think I'll make a run for that title.



Daddy always said I couldn't be the Head Tortie because I was just a kitten and I wasn't strong enough to beat Deli into submission, but I'm sure when I turn one I'll gain at least 4 pounds and be able to stage my coup.

In the meantime I'm taking certain steps to set the stage for the big takeover. Today I'm taking over her blog day, and I've also been making maneuvers when I visit.

Here I am sleeping in Deli's favorite spot in front of the hall mirror.



As you can see, she's not too pleased with it.



Deli likes posing and showing off her Tortie colours in front of the purple wall. She says it brings out her orange gene...




Well guess who else has an orange gene?! I'm much cuter too!




I can't wait until my birthday! Hmmmm, I think I'll make Bella my first officer. She may be tiny but her face is so intimidating! And Samson, well I bet I can find lots of uses for a big brute like him.



Uh oh! Here comes Deli! I guess she didn't like that 'much cuter' remark. Can't she wait until I'm one?



Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea wether you are the number one tortie or not you are a lovely little cat!

Happy early birthday wishes my dear...

Cory said...

Uh oh Sweet Pea...better watch out or your name will be shortened to Pea...with the whack of a Delilah paw.

Karen Jo said...

Time sure is flying by. It's hard to believe that you are almost one already. Don't worry about being number one tortie, you are cute and lovable all the same.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Awwww Sweet Pea, we can't believe yoo are nearly one! Time flies.

Old Kitty said...

Awwww gorgeous Sweet Pea!! Me and Charlie hope you and lovely Delilah and Bella and Samson will be the bestest furriends and furblings forever! :-)

You are all so adorable!

Take care

Sweet Praline said...

I can't believe you are almost one! I have a strong feeling that Deli may have a different opinion of things in her house.

Mishkat said...

Sweet Pea, you are adorable! Franklin says there are certain advantages to being "the kitten" in the house (we are using the word loosely in his case because he is 5), so you might want to consider those too!

P.S. Saw Samson's post below about his itches being gone - we hope he's feeling much better.

The Island Cats said...

Uh oh!! We see a battle brewing! Sweet Pea, we think Delilah is gonna put up a fight for that title!!

Marg said...

Wow Sweet Pea, you are getting to be an old lady. One year's old. So you are going to gain 4 pounds on the day of your birthday. Don't be too mean to Delilah, she has been nice to you. But you sure are cute. We love that picture of your paws and the purple back ground.
Have a terrific Tuesday.

Cindy said...

Coming up on one year old already? I don't think you are ready to take over yet, though. Look at her laser eyes glaring at you.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Sweet Pea, you have high ambitions! We know you can do it!!! So very pretty!

Kea said...

Hmm, we think you might have a bit of challenge, usurping Delilah! Maybe you two can work out a compromise, share top cat spot, alternate days or weeks or something like that. :-)

Cat with a Garden said...

Oh Sweet Pea, we can not believe you will be one year already! Time just flies by. We're not too sure if Deli's rule has anything to do with age, maybe she's a natural leader... But it's always worth trying.
It was funny to hear about Samson's special relationship with newspapers. What a story!

meowmeowmans said...

Wow, Sweet Pea, it's hard to believe you'll be one in just a couple of days. You've grown so much! No matter what your position in the house, one thing's for sure ... you are adorable. Happy early purrthday!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Ut~OH Sweet Pea!!! You sure are adamant about being number #1 Tortie! I think Deli is going to put up a good fight with that one! Looking forward to your PAWTY!!!

Catherine said...

It's hard to share the #1 spot but when there is equal cuteness involved ~ but what can a kitty do? Just share the limelight I guess. :)

Sweet Pea, we MOL'ed about you gaining 4 pounds in one day!
You have to remember you prolly learned a lot of your Tortie ways from Deli, so you do owe her just a tiny debt of gratitude. Very tiny.
Good luck with the coup, we are staying outta this one and if Sampson is smart, he will too!
Make sure Bella doesn't take over while you & Deli are "working" things out...

Brian said...

Oh no, a Tortie contest in the making!

Noll's Nip said...

A Sweet Pea Coup....we are intrigued by your plans ;)

Cat said...

Sweet Pea you are such a cutie! Good luck with the take-over :-) Can't wait for your birthday!

Busby and Raymond said...

Sweet Pea, we think if you and Delilah teamed up you could take over the world!

Angel and Kirby said...

A contest to see who is number one tortie! We can't wait!

Sammy and Andy said...

MOL, you are such a cutie, Sweepy!!!!!!!!!! But we're not going to hold our breath that you will become head Tortie!!!!!

We are really looking forward to your birthday, sweetie!!!!!

Love to all of you from the 3 of us. xxxxxxxxxxxx

Eric and Flynn said...

Sweet Pea, we can't believe you are going to be one soon! If you want to make it to two, we don't think you should mess with Deli though!

Tristan and Crikey said...

Watch it Sweet Pea, you just might be getting too big for your britches! Hee Hee!

Romeo said...

My dearest Sweet Pea....never ever give up ;)

Happy Purrday just a wee bit early. Start celebrating now and that four pounds will be very easy......

Purrs!

CCL Wendy said...

The pupils in Sweet Pea's eyes are so very big in these pictures! Did she just get hopped up on some nip or something? Or is just the idea of becoming top cat making her eyes dilate?

Keiko said...

Awww Sweet Pea, you don't HAVE to be Head Tortie, because then Deli will always try to get the title back from you, and it will be tiring!
But I'm the only orange/black tortie here. So I guess I'm it!
Pricilla is DILUTE so she cannot be a Head Tortie. Mawhawhaw!!!!
Purrrs!
