Brad got to be our official name-decider! We discussed a few options beforehand, but Smokehouse just stuck. I have to admit, I've just been calling him Lil Smoky. He's an awfully quiet fella, and when he does occasionally make noise, it's more of a soft, birdlike cooing than a meow. It's actually super adorable.
Better yet, he seems to be getting along with Lefty awfully well. They can't keep their noses away from each other's butts, and Lefty isn't fond of sharing, but I've only caught them hissing at each other once or twice, so I'd consider it a victory. (Update: as expected, Lefty has started to become slightly territorial and bullish, but they still seem to get along most of the time!)
Like most kittens, Smoky is really just a crazy little furball of energy. He likes to climb into bed with Brad and me in the middle of the night, and although Brad complained at the idea of having two cats in the bed, I can tell he likes it when Smoky snuggles up on him (whether he wants to admit it or not).
Anyway, thanks for stopping by to say hello to our newest little buddy! He seems to sit awfully well for the camera, so you may be seeing a lot more of him in the near future. Thanks for reading!
