Mankitten Monday

Gabriel here!

Samson was kind enough to let me post today because I have SO much to say!

First, I had a very long trip over 3 days to get to my new forever home from Chrystal's.  My buddy, Scott, drove the whole way (I'm too small to reach the pedals)!  We stopped for some play time.




I really love Scott.  He made sure I wasn't scared and let me sit on his shoulder during breaks.





When I got to my new home, I met Sweet Pea.  She's very pretty, but she's SO big!  My new Daddy thought it would be better if she met me in the hall of the apartment building instead of me coming right into her house.



She was a little mean to me at first...



...but now she's coming around and playing with me a lot!

I just love to play and Sweet Pea has so many toys!


I think I'm gonna like it here...



Gabriel
xoxo

Awww Gabriel, welcome to your new Forever Home. It certainly looks like you will have plenty to do. Sweet Pea will soon be snuggling you and playing great games with you :)xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, we laughed at Sweet Pea whapping at you, Gabriel, because that's just the kind of thing our Annie would do...except she was meaner about it. LOL.

We hope you both become the best of friends very quickly! :-)

Gabriel, You are a sweet little boy, you just run to her like love at first sight : )
To Miss Sweet Pea, You have to stop to treat a boy like a piece of meat ! He is your boy friend, remember ?
But you made me laugh..Sorry Gabriel, you must do speedy grow up to handle her !..Good Luck !

Loved the video where Gabriel just came right out and straight to Sweet Pea. I have a feeling they will be the best of buds soon.

We are with Mr. Puddy, you need to do some fast growing to tame that Sweet Pea, Gabriel. We know you will be best friends really soon and we are so glad to see you enjoying all of Sweet Pea's toys. That will teach her to whap her. Looking forward to more pictures. Take care.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We think you're a furry brave little chap Gabriel cos when Sweet Pea tried to whap you you lifted your paw right back at her! We are sure you will be the best of buddies very soon.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Gabriel, you are a little love bug! We saw how you ran right up to Sweet Pea...and you know what? Her paw whapping didn't look at that mean. I think she'll be head over paws in love with you real soon.

Gabriel, we liked it when you whapped Sweet Pea back!! You gotta stand up for yourself or those torties will run all over you!! We think you are gonna like your new home!!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Gabriel, I cannot believe how loudly you were purring in the car! The first time I went in a car to my new house, I screamed the whole way, I was so scared! I think Sweet Pea was just testing you by waving the Paw of Doom at you. I am sure you'll be pals soon enough, and I can see you already love your new home.

Tillie and Georgia said...

Doodle Bean said...

I love that first video -- Gabe's purring is louder than the traffic noise! It's amazing to see how confident and happy Gabe is now -- it was just a month or so ago when he was named Gabriel because he was expected to be an angel in the morning.

Just goes to show the great work Chrystal and her daughters do to bring little furballs back to life! And now he has a great new home in which to live that life.

It's all good!!!

Doodle Bean said...

Forgot to mention how great Scott was to take such good care of Gabe during a long, long drive. What a mensch!!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Welcome Gabriel! We are so happy to see yoo settling in.

looloo said...

Just great for this adorable little boy! I confess I feared for his life, considering the long trip, but with a mate such as Scott, it was a nice travel!

Bijou said...

So exciting. We are so happy you are here. I know Sweet Pea and the whole family will warm up to you fast. Bijou.

Catsparella said...

SO many squeeeees!! Gabriel is sooo tiny and cute! The purring in the first clip just killed me!!

Congrats, and I wish you so much luck and happiness with him.. Aww, Sweet Pea!

Eric and Flynn said...

We laughed when you whapped Sweet Pea back. We think you will soon be best friends.
