Dear Constant Reader,
I’d like to introduce you to the newest denizen of The Manor
Bartholomew A. Cat.
The A. is for Allen. He runs very fast.
He’s been in residence for just over a month and while we miss Albert more than I can say, little Bart brings some joy into the house.
He’s younger than we planned to adopt, not yet a year, and quite the intrepid explorer, looking for all the dustiest corners of The Manor and finding as many cobwebs as he can and he’s already figured out how to open some of the pantry cabinets. From his large ears and long legs and even longer tail we think he’s going to be a big boy. Probably not as massive as Albert, but he’s already a substantial cat.
It’s been a challenging transition from life with our dignified gentleman to this little bundle of energy and chaos. He wants very much to be in the same place as the people, although he doesn’t snuggle much (yet), and loves playing with toys, looking out the window, and being carried. He purrs constantly and loudly. We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter cat.
There’s a good chance you’ll be seeing him in more of my videos (if you’re a Patron or subscribe to my YouTube channel or 365 Kitchen Cabinet) or hearing some mysterious noise off-camera followed by someone yelling “Bart!”
