Happy 2nd Adoption Day to Our Roary!!

 It is so hard to believe our adorable "marshmallow boy" Roary has been with us TWO YEARS!!! It's time to celebrate!!!  I had introduced you to Roary quite some time ago and for this post there will be a mix of his intro post and some new photos! Hope you enjoy!

Two years ago, I believe in August I thought I might be up for adding a kitty to our family again, I wasn't sure, but I subscribed to a number of sites and figured if it was meant to be it would be. One day after meeting two other cats that were instantly obvious, they were NOT the right ones, I saw this:


Yes, Roary began his life as a "Felix!" I saw this face and instantly fell in love. I decided to send Lenny to PetSmart to check him out in his cage first, just to see if he was friendly. Lenny came home with a great report, "Felix" held his paw out to Lenny and proceeded to work his way into his heart. I promptly filled out an application, they checked my references, and an appointment was made to meet "Felix" on September 21, 2020.


The rest is history! "Felix" instantly was named Roary, (after the Detroit Lions mascot), and we promptly adopted him. Roary was born June 10, 2020. He was a little over 3 months old when he joined our family. What strikes me as strange is Dakota was diagnosed with cancer on June 8th, we found out Cody had to have biopsy surgery on June 9th and Roary was born June 10th. It certainly seems that a higher power had a plan that I knew nothing about.

The original Roary and I at a game on my birthday

Our Roary, a friendly, playful, adorable bundle of fur came into our house like a terror. He was into EVERYTHING (and I DO mean EVERYTHING!) From getting behind the washer/dryer, to getting stuck under our china cabinet (or so we thought, until we called the Fire Department and Roary came out 2 minutes before they arrived after being under it for nearly an hour) .......we knew we had a real character on our hands. He went from being UNDER the china cabinet to scaling it.




Roary LOVES to give kisses, he LOVES being held, cuddled and petted. NOTE: BY HIS DADDY!!! Roary is the ONLY one of the three cats I have had that really isn't into ME!!! Don't get me wrong, he loves me, (mostly for food lol) and talks to me. But for Roary, the world revolves around his DADDY and yes, even Levi. BEFORE ME!!






you will be seeing this photo again
on Cat Daddy Day!! (Stay tuned!!) 
Thanks, Ann, (Zoolatry)for the great editing job!!



Unlike Cody who was completely disinterested in boxes, Roary has yet to meet a box that he DOESN'T like!










Roary and Levi get along much better than they did a year ago. We still can't allow Levi to be out of his crate ALONE with Roary if no one is home, because Levi still plays too rough. Levi feels that Roary's HEAD should be in HIS MOUTH! (I know Roary looks delicious and ready-to-eat, but we don't want Levi taking that literally!!)

Roary was a most darling kitten, and he is an adorable cat. He has grown into his body, but his head seems surprisingly small. It's as if his body grew but his head decided to stay the same! 






 

Look at the above photo and check out the photo on the left with the blue socks in it. Roary's latest obsession is OPENING MY SOCK DRAWER and he TAKES OUT THE SOCKS!!! Every day I find socks that Roary brings to me in the kitchen. He doesn't just play with them, he DELIVERS them to ME.  I'm assuming that this is the way that he shows me he loves TOLERATES me.


Every day we are grateful for our fun, adventurous, mischievous Roary. He is truly a special boy. He's kind, patient and extremely intelligent. We love our "Marshmallow" boy and wouldn't trade him for the world!

Happy 2nd Adoption Day Roary!!!

Love, Mom, Dad and Levi

      Minko was my lap kitty, Pipo mostly went to his pawppy...when we only had Pipo, then I felt a bit 'left out' as it were.

    3. Cody was definitely my lap kitty/shadow/other half. Believe it or not, Levi is more attached to me than he is to Lenny....I feel VERY left out with Roary!
