A note from the Rumblemum

Thanks to everyone that was concerned about Rumbles. Rumbledad will take him to the vet today so they can do something about his acne - it's gotten quite bad.

I should say - Rumbles very obviously loves Diego. I actually think a big part of this is Rumbles wants to snuggle with Diego, but the little Hamlet isn't at the cuddle stage yet.

Rumbles tries to wash his head, which is something Inigo LOVED, but Diego thinks it's an invitation to wrestle.

Rumbles misses Inigo very much, as do we all.

My sweet Inigo, I think of you every day

Awwww Rumbles, Simba still misses Figero very much too. I'm sure Diego will soon get to enjoy snuggles and bath time. I know I really enjoy it now. Still like to have a little wrestle now and again though :)xx

Whskr & Dash Kitten said...

OH heck.... My eyes just filled up at the mention of Inigo. Bless his lovely soul. Poor Rumble, he must miss him such a lot. Inigo was a wonderful WONDERFUl boy.

I just want to pick Rumble up and stop the hurt, I know you must be thinking the same. I hope that Diego will calm down a little bit and maybe Rumble will be able to lick Diego and know he is appreciated.

* Big. Deep. Sigh *

Sparkle said...

I'm sure Diego will calm down in time, but for now, it's going to be a little stressful for Rumbles because Diego isn't behaving the way he wants and expects. Purrs to him.

Cokie the Cat said...

Me and mom think of Inigo a lot, too.

Mr Puddy said...

Rumble ! Rumble ! Rumble !
I really want to give you a big hug. Diego may not like you expected but I'm sure you two will learn to get along in the way you both are happy !
I still purrs for you, Rumble
Kisses and Hugs to you and Rumblemom
xoxo

We're feeling leaky now too ~ we so miss sweet boy Inigo. we are sending purrs for Rumbles ~ we love him tons.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Aw, Rumbles...It's so hard when a beloved friend is no longer with us. :-(

Paws crossed that all goes well at the v-e-t. We know kitties can get acne from eating off plastic dishes, but we don't know other causes.

Purrs from us!

Old Kitty said...

Awwww lovely Rumbles!!!! Gorgeous Inigo is watching over you! He is your special guardian angel!! Me and Charlie send you and sweet Diego plenty of purrs and hugs! Take care

Lisa said...

Good luck at the vet, D'a! I hope Diego lightens up for you soon. We're remembering Inigo, too...

The Monkeys said...

We miss Inigo too! We think Diego will soon be snuggling with you Rumbles and that should alleviate some of your stress. We will send purrs for your vet visit

Note from Mommy: Samson had acne too but since we got rid of all plastic bowls and changed the water fountain to a ceramic one, he hasn't had any.

Angel Sweet Praline said...

I know how you feel about missing Inigo. I miss Sweet Praline everyday!

Mariodacat said...

Awww poor Rumbles. My heart just goes out to you cuz you not understand yet where Inigo went and why that new Hamlet doesn't want to snuggle. Sending healing purrs that your acne goes away. HUGS to you dear friend and Rumble dad and rumble mum.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Vidock said...

We can imagine how much you all miss Inigo. Diego will settle down, as will Rumbles. These things can take a bit of time. And let's not forget that stressful consequences can just as much be the result of fun stress as bad stress.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Paws khrossed fur my tasty - I mean purry furry pal!

Maybe he needs some WOOFIE slobber on his akhne spots!

Hugz&Khysses,

Mr. Pip said...

We miss Inigo, too! Hope things go well at the vet.

Your pal, Pip

Marg said...

Mom's eyes are all filled with water now too, talking about Inigo. Poor Rumbles, her doesn't understand why Diego isn't Inigo. We hope the vet can do something about his skin. I feel sure that the two boys will work things out. Diego just needs to grow up a little bit. Big hugs to ya Mom.

Cory said...

Rumbles, we all miss Inigo too, you must be hurting...and that little whippersnapper isn't letting you wash him. Sigh.

Laila and Minchie said...

Such a sweet picture of Rumbles with his Inigo. Good luck at the vet!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are sorry you have to go to the vet about your acne Rumbles - we hope it goes away quickly. We are sure you will love Diego soon and join him for a snuggle.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Forever Foster said...

We often think of Inigo. He was a very special boy.

We started Fui on a food with lots of oils and omegas to help his dandruff. We recently stopped it because while his dandruff cleared up, his acne exploded. Could that possibly be a factor?

Sending smooches to Rumbles, and a big hug to you Rumblemum.

Random Felines said...

Hey rumblemom - our mom says that our angel kitty Butterscotch used to have the acne pretty bad and our v-e-t said to use clearasil - worked pretty good! We know that Diego will learn to cuddle (someday!).

The Whiskeratti said...

We hope it will all settle down quickly.

Katnip Lounge said...

KonaKitty still misses her Dusterman; Rumbles, we understand. Good luck at the vet handsome boy, we still loves you, spots and all!

Pumpkinpuddy said...

Come to my house. I'll cuddle you all you want. You can wash my head, too. *softpaw* I miss Inigo, too. *sighs, dreaming of blue eyes*

Danielle said...

We hope Rumbles gets better...but we still love him whether or not he has spots!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I still say kittens are difficult. I need a place to get away from him, preferably with my person!

BeadedTail said...

We just got all leaky because we miss Inigo too. He was a very sweet boy and in time, Diego will calm down and he and Rumbles will be best furiends too. We hope Rumbles gets better soon!

Furry Bottoms said...

My cat used to get acne on her chin and vet said it had to do with food. I don't know... I kept feeding her the same thing and the acne went away. I hope Rumbles is okay!

Brian said...

I still miss my brother too and I often think about sweet Inigo. Purrs to you Rumbles!

OKcats said...

Aw, dang, Mr. Rumbles, we're sorry you're still missing sweet Mr. Inigo. I didn't miss either of my brothers when they left for the Bridge, though my mom still misses them both terribly. We hope that soon little Hamlet/Diego will settle down and let you cuddle him!

The Island Cats said...

Rumbles, we're sorry your acne is worse. We hope the vet can make it better. And we know how much you are missing Inigo, too.

Athena said...

Poor Rumbles, I am so sorry you are missing Inigo. I can imagine it's hard. My brofur missed his sisfur before I came. I hope Diego calms down and wants to cuddle soon, and that your acne clears up. That must be uncomfortable.

Nikita Cat said...

{{{{RUMBLES }}}}

Elvira & I send healing purrs, and Daddy Kiril sends well wishes, too!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We just got hoe a little bit ago and wanted to come send some good wishes for Rumblebum - we sure hope his vet visit brought him some comfort and healing.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Lin said...

It will come....with time. I think they are off to a GREAT start. It is hard to think of Inigo, isn't it? Sigh. I'm sure everyone misses him very much.

Fin said...

Purrs Rumbles, hope you boys work it all out soon.

Au and Target said...

Poor Rumbles. We hope it gets better soon. Maybe when Diego is a tad older?

Lorenza said...

I hope everything went well at the Vet.
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I hope you find out the cause of Rumble's acne...it could be anything from a food allergy to a reaction to stress...(the arrival of the new kitty??), environmental irritants, anything! I hope you find out what it is soon and that it can be cleared up in no time!
xoxoxo

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Aww, sweet Rumbles! Diego will grow into the kind of brother you need (and miss). You just have to give him a little time.

Meanwhile, we are sure the v-e-t will be able to clear up your acne!

Lita and the boys in Melbourne said...

Aww, Rumbles, no-one will ever replace Inigo but give the squirt some more time, he's still learning the ropes after all...
And dab some apple cider vinegar on your chin - it won't hurt you and it might be just the thing.

Cat said...

Poor Rumbles! We miss sweet Inigo too.

Prancer Pie said...

Inigo is greatly missed here too. (We read your blog long before mom got the nerve to start one.) Diego looks like he is fitting right in. Purrs for a fantastic day.

Doodle Bean said...

I had this problem with my 4.5 year old Fuzz and a new kitten -- the difference between energy levels was too much for the old guy.

Can't say I handled it well because they still don't get along that well (12 years later!), but playing several times a day with the kitten until she was tired helped a bit. I also put out lots of springy and hanging toys in hopes that she would jump on those instead of on Fuzz. That part didn't work as well as the interactive toys.

I also gave lots of extra attention to Fuzz, which sometimes backfired because Sweetpea would want to hog my lap. Still, it's worth a try.

One thing I didn't try was to give Fuzz his own room. It might be worth a try.

Just my $0.02.

marley said...

Hey guys. Sorry to hear Rumbles is spotty....(*snigger*)....and we of corse finkin of Inigo too. We wishin you da best and we know that Rumbles and Diego soon be best of pals. It take a while tho...you can arsk Lola....

Cathy Keisha said...

You look sooooo tiny in that picture w/Inigo. I miss him too. You have acme? Do you eat out of plastic dishes? Has your diet changed? I got antibiotics the time I had it. *giggle*

"The Boys" and Karen said...

Ahh, that photo is so cute; they look like their paws are touching.

Lynx217 said...

A Message for Rumbles:
Dude, relax. The kitten is just that - a kitten - he'll mellow out with age. Now's the time you're supposed to be showing him how to be a rough, tough guardcat! Cuddles come later. Just a thought.
By the way, miss ya buddy, but know me and your brofur keep a very close eye on you. He's waiting to see the naughty though - he's afraid you've lost your touch!

Sagira said...

Sure hope you feel better soon Rumbles. :)

Pup Fan said...

Hope Rumbles is feeling better soon!

Your Daily Cute said...

What as sweet picture of the boys. :)

I hope Rumbles acne gets better fast and that the crazy Hamlet calms down a little and learns to snuggle, too. Play is good, but cuddles are good, too!

<3 Inigo <3

Daisy said...

Oh Rumbles, I miss Inigo, too! I hope your acne is better soon. Harley's got so bad he would get big, red lumps and his whole face would swell up!

Elyse K said...

Awww, Rumbles! I'm sorry you are missing Inigo and that Diego Hamlet isn't quite at the snuggle stage yet. He'll get there, I know. I'm sending you both some hugs today (((Rumbles and Diego))).

meowmeowmans said...

We have leaky eyes too, Rumbles. We are so sorry you are missing Inigo so much. We miss him, too, buddy.

Purrs and hugs to you all.

Tigger, Munchkin, Jigsaw and Patches said...

Awww..leaky eyes again. We were so sorry about Inigo, and I know Rumbles must still miss him.
(Munchkin, too..)...
I remember Munchkin grieved for some time after her sisfur Soot went to the bridge.
She has now decided that Tigger is her new buddy, so Hamlet will be sure to come around and all will be well in Rumbles' world again.
Headbonks and nosetaps to all.

blindmaximus said...

Rumbles could always come lick ToPu's head. He's very vain and enjoys it a lot. Though they might end up getting in an argument over who is the most beautiful.

Abigail said...

Inigo will never be forgotten, but I hope your pain lessens... :<( sweet purrrs Rumbles.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Oh...those pesky kittens...no social graces...no 'down time...they don't understand feline etiquette. Kiki doesn't miss them, Coco is over them, and Disco and Brighton don't miss being uncles either I don't think.

It is hard to a handsome, mature mancat to put up with lil whippersnappers but he'll grow up and be you BFF we hope!
