Little Guy is Growing Like a Weed...

Our little Guy Noir is growing so fast. At this age he is growing in length and he is quite a string bean! His tail is extremely long too. I read that this is normal for this stage in growth. We love his name Guy Noir, but we have also come up with a few nick-names too, such as Whirly Gig, Brat Cat, Devil Cat and several others.

Taken with a flash..... look at those long hairs sticking out!

Overall though he is very cute and loves to torment the adult girl cats. So far Aunt Dot and Granny Gin have held up alright under Guy's onslaught of terror! They are not afraid to correct his bad manners and he is starting to catch on that they do not like being jumped on and bit!

Wondering what is on the other side of the door.

Sorry for the blurry pictures! He won't stay still and I have an old camera!

He only remembers his sweet momma and brothers and sisters, who apparently had no problem going along with the rough housing. My girls will not be apart of that. They will play along most of the time, but when he gets too rough they let him have it! It only takes a hiss and a swift smack down with one paw to set him straight!

Guy inside his playpen.

The playpen is located on the screened porch where he can get fresh air and watch the birds and squirrels.

Here is his view, there is a goldfinch at the feeder in this photo.

The playpen has come in very handy. At first Guy was in there several times a day so the girls could get used to him. Now I mainly use it if I need to keep him safe and not underfoot when I am working in the kitchen cooking or when bringing in groceries from the garage. He thinks there is something fascinating out on the garage and tries to dash out there.  He is settling in quite well now and enjoys playing with his toys and chasing the girls.  He also loves to look out the windows on the porch and watch the birds.  We are all having a ball with this little bundle of energy!


  1. He is so adorable - love how his hair is sticking up on end!! That playpen is sheer genius.

  2. What fun to have a new kitten in the house!

  3. What a sweetie. He is so darn cute. I'm not surprised the girls are teaching him some manners. They're older and they will help him learn the proper cat social skills. I love that playpen! What a great idea.

  4. Did you know that black cats are a good luck symbol in England whereas they are the opposite in the USA? I may have told you this before, but I am getting older and I forget. Good thing I am always so fascinating!
    Really sweet cats, and I love the idea of the playpen on the porch. My cat is 15 years old now, and I think I need that playpen for her.

    1. I didn't know that about cats in England, but I personally have always thought black cats brought good luck. The cat playpen has worked out well. I have a 15 year old cat (Ginny) and she may need it in a year or two. I figured I would get some good use out of it.

  5. Looks like he is growing in personality as much as size!

  6. Oh he is quite the little lady-killer, so gorgeous! I'm sure the girls will soon have him in line. Kittens are such fun to have around, one minute they're darting around like crazy and the next they fall asleep in a second.

  7. Guy Noir is adorable. The playpen looks like a wonderful idea too. I have four bad kitties and I was once asked which was my favorite and I said the one I am holding at the time. LOL Thanks for sharing. God Bless!

  8. Guy Noir is just gorgeous, a real bundle of fun. Give him a hug from me!

  9. What an adorable little ball of fur. I love the name Guy Noir. There is nothing quite like having a kitten in the house.

    Sorry I have been a bad blogger lately, hopefully things will slow down for me soon.
