Amy's Kitten Spike
Today's picture features Amy's playful kitten Spike. When Amy found out that
Olivia's cat was going to have kittens, she said she wanted one, and after
seeing the litter her choice was clear...Spike!
Of course if Olivia could have had her way about it, she would have kept them
all. An animal lover extraordinaire, she has never met an animal that she didn't
want to keep. In fact, her home is already a mini-zoo! But better judgment won out and
Olivia gave away all the kittens except for Daisy.
When Amy first took Spike home with her, he immediately became part of the
family, fitting right in and making himself at home. Ali, Amy's other cat,
wasn't too thrilled with Spike. But Sage
took to him like a protective older brother, playing with him, and of course
showing him who was boss around here by putting the kitten's entire body in his
mouth! Poor Spike stayed dripping wet with saliva for the first few weeks in his
Now that Spike has grown a bit and adapted to the family, he does his own
bossing around from time to time. But he knows his place in the pecking order
and seems to have accepted the fact that Sage and Ali run the show as the
old-timers in the bunch.
