Rooster Fridays

As some of you may know, Calico Jack and I have recently acquired a new pet.  His name is Señor Edgar Hernandez Riggs McMillan Williams.  We call him Señor Ed.  He is what's known as a gallo, or rooster (in English).

You see, Señor Ed came to us by way of Calico Jack's Grandma Riggs.  (May she rest in peace. XO)  We consider it an honor to have Señor Ed in our home, however, he needed to meet our other fur baby Oliver.

The following is evidence of the first meeting between Señor Ed and Oliver.  I am presenting this evidence so that everyone will know that it was Oliver who attacked first.

 Señor Ed hopped on the kitchen table, fully expecting to have a nice visit with his new sibling, Oliver.  He was excited to finally get to meet the cat because Calico Jack and I were biding our time until we could properly control the environment in which they were meeting.

Initially, Oliver and Señor Ed just smelled each other.  Calico Jack and I were both really excited that this initial meeting was going so well.  Everyone was behaving and appeared to just be curious about one another.

 Then, Oliver started to get nosy  He was smelling the back of Señor Ed's head and body.  As could be expected, Señor Ed was a little taken aback by this violation of his personal space.

 Oliver then informed us that Señor Ed had passed his inspection and he would allow him to live in our house.  Of course, that decision was not really up for debate, but it was nice to know that Oliver approved.

That's when all hell broke lose.  Oliver ran back to Señor Ed and bit him on the top of his head!  At that point we helped Señor Ed back to his perch to recover from this viscous cat attack.  He was quite shaken and he asked for a Valium.  I couldn't blame him for being nervous and scared!

 When we turned around, we found Oliver snoozing, content with his taste of chicken.  This barbarian cat has no shame!  I always knew he was a little shady...

 By the time we were ready to go to bed, we checked in on Señor Ed.  We found him saying his rosary and asking for protection from the hairy beast that he was now having to live with.  Poor Señor Ed.  I will be keeping a close eye so that he is safe in our home.


P.S.  Stay tuned for next week when Señor Edgar Williams shows you one of the many attractions of New Orleans.  I think it will be good for him to get out of the house away from the barbarian cat!   

P.P.S. Please excuse the spacing of the pictures - I am working out the kinks of that!
