Tiki & Atticus are Double Trouble

Tiki and Atticus live with their Momma and Poppa in the great state of Michigan. Tiki is a lovely feline and he enjoys playing string and taking long naps in his sunshine spot. Atticus is a precious Boston Terrier and he is always up for a good romp with his squirrel and then a good nap.

The Great Gatsby

A few days ago we had a very fun visitor. My Momma told me that her friend (who I call Auntie Laura) was bringing over a friend for me to play with named, Gatsby. I am serious, I have never in my life seen a beast so big. He was gianormous!! He had this weird thing over his nose and I tried to sniff it but he didnt even look at me. He didn't even care that I was around! He just walked around our living room and sniffed at my toys. He brought one of his own toys and I played with it. This thing was a lot of fun. It was furry and fat. It tickled my nose. I thought Gatsby would get mad that I was playing with it but he was very generous.
I tried and tried to get Gatsby to notice me and play with me but he didn't really seem to care ... AT ALL. Maybe he was feeling shy. I get shy from time to time ... I understand that meeting new friends can be a little scary. So I figured I would ease his nerves by playing with him. Maybe he didnt like that so much... I bit his tail a couple times and he growled and yelled at me to "STOP". Gee whiz, I was just trying to be friendly!! I think he relaxed after that because I saw him walking around the house with my Momma. My brother Tiki wasn't so sure of Gatsby. I think Tiki wished that he would just go home. Tiki is so anti-social... He only likes Momma & Poppas people friends - other than that he doesn't like anyone paying attention to him. I harrass him about it and tell him that he's not reaching his full potential of fun.
Gatsby opened up to me towards the end of the evening. We played outside together and Gatsby told me that he hated my brother. I can understand... my brother is weird. He also told me that he's afraid of linoleum. He was embarrased because he freaked out in our kitchen. I told him that it's ok to freak out sometimes... and that linoleum is pretty fun if you run on it super fast.
It was a lot of fun having Gatsby over, I really hope Auntie Laura brings him over again.
