He's starting to grow on me

Still no real name for kitten, but he's got a new nickname... Rumblemum is calling him 'DB' because he likes to go up on his back paws and dance around like a little bear! (DB = Dancing bear)

We've starting playing chasies. Rumblemum cracks up every time she sees the wee kitten chasing me down the hall (it's not THAT funny) She gives me treats cause she sees how gentle I am with him - we were bunny kicking each other and I was very careful not to hurt him.

Some new photos:

How could you be afraid of ME? I'm a smiley little chap! 

I'm a handsome man-cat in training!

He is such a little cutie! But,from the look of those paws he's going to grow to be a very big boy!

You two are going to be such a handsome pair!!

Punapippuri said...

Aw! We think you are going to be just like Stran-veli was to me - a huge big brother and lots of great fun. It is really good you do gentle bunny kicks and not use claws. I can rememebr chasing Stran for hours and thinking I was king of the world because he ran away from me. Now I know he just was playing. But I am still a King!
We were wondering if there are any photos of the two of you together ? Little Minimew Ursa-boy is indeed very cute - and he looks a little smug too. :)

Huggies to the cutie!!! You be nice to the little one, won't you?

Simba said...

Oh, yes, a VERY handsome man-cat-in-training! Rumbles, that is very sweet of you to play nicely with him. Something with Bear int eh name would be fun and suitable, wouldn't it? I also like Pikku's "Ursa" version of Bear.

Mom says she knew you would grow to like him. We are very glad you are being gentle with him - we can tell you from experience that if you are rough with the babies, your mom gets mad at YOU! Love the first picture - he looks like he is trying to come up with an evil plan. MOL

Rumbles, your lil' tot brofur is a teeny tiny heartbreaker! Going with the Bear theme, he's the Little Dipper to your Big Dipper!
We're happy your are starting to have fun together.

Cat Mandu said...

I'm busy with Google for a few days -- and you bring a Squirt into the house! He looks interesting. Maybe downright cute. I'm sure you will keep an eye on him.

DB stands for Da Bomb! Da Best! Da Baby!

It could work...

Honestly, I don't care what his name is, just keep posting pictures. ;)

"The Boys" and Karen said...

Awww! DB is adorable.

But what's he thinking about in that second photo? Maybe he's trying to figure what to do next.

Glad to know he's adjusting so well.

"Rumblemum is calling him 'DB' because he likes to go up on his back paws and dance around like a little bear! (DB = Dancing bear)" <--Ok, this is the cutest thing I have read in my life!!! Pics or video, please!
