Was it the constant whining of U’i during the night? Was it the request of the oldest child to have a dog? Does Barbie secretly want another child? Whatever the reason, I am proud to announce that the newest member of the Eastern Colvin clan …. Koke!! For those wondering what Koke (koh-kee) means …. it is a Hawaiian name for a quick runner or a swift runner.
She sure likes her scratching toy!
Now it didn’t take long for her to find Connor’s room. Here are a couple of shots of her eyeing the fish who is blissfully unaware of the newest Colvin’s evil intentions!
Now how is the little guy managing to put up with such a nice kitty? Here is Carter, in let’s just say, a quiet moment with Koke. (Those are far and few between to say the least.)
I will give her kudos though. She doesn’t get fazed at all by Carter’s constant attention. We have told Connor on how to lift Koke properly but Carter is very brutish. He simply grabs her by whatever means (usually by the front paw and one rear leg) and then brings her around to whatever area he wants. Quite comical but Koke just let’s it happen. She has a great temperant to say the least. Koke has endured Carter and the occasional hiss from U’i. Today U’i was more responsive to Koke and I am sure they will be great friends. Hopefully once Koke gets a clean bill of health they will be integrated in the house. (Koke has quite the sneeze right now which looks like a cold to this pre-med dropout.)
More pictures later. I hope everyone is doing well out there in cyberspace.
