What is a Poteet?

Sweet Pea here!

Some of you may have answered that Poteet is a town in Texas and you would be correct, but the real answer is, Poteet is an evil creature that has been sent to my house to make me crazy!

I think I'll just stay up here.

Poteet was the name that Daddy originally wanted to call me, but the Monkeys' Mommy convinced him to call me Sweet Pea.   Not only did this new little Tortie take my name, she took my catnip, my green spring and rolled around on MY Daddy's socks!

I have been up on this shelf trying to avoid the little tyke but every time I look down, she's still there!

Gabriel tried growling at her from a distance...

...but she's still there.

Oh great Tortie Goddess in the Sky, please make this new Tortie go away so I can come down off this shelf!

Sweet Pea

Tortie Domination Day

Delilah here!

As the head Tortie Monkey, I am pleased to announce that as of today the Tortie population of Monkeys will become even stronger!  We will be 50% Tortie!

Mommy was browsing her Facebook feed and saw a post from one of her friends that does rescue and saw a post about some cats that were on death row at a pound outside of Montreal.  This is an especially awful pound because they still use gas to kill cats and dogs that aren't claimed after a certain amount of time.  Of course there is a movement to stop them from using this inhumane method, but I will save Mommy's rant for another post.  ANYWAY, she saw this little beauty in the photos:

She is only 6 months old and was picked up as a stray.  Mommy kept watching the post and hoping for the good news that someone would save her, but time was running out.   She was scheduled to be killed today!  Mommy called Sweet Pea and Gabriel's Daddy and showed him the photo and he said 'call and get her'!  She is being transported over to Sweet Pea and Gabriel's house today!

Poor Sweet Pea will have to learn how to adjust to living with a new Tortie.  I can only hope that my intense Tortie training has paid off and she will be fine with the new little one.

In other Tortie news, Mommy visited her Mom recently and got a chance to hang out with my Auntie Mattie
She was sick for a little while and had us all worried, but she is all better and doing very well!

We can't forget our wise old Tortie, Bella.  She had to be shaved again but I'm pleased to announce that she is as grumpy as ever and doing very well.


Happy Tortie Domination Day!  I'm going to celebrate by hanging out with my beautiful Tortie friend who lives in the wall.
