YoYo is our youngest “son.” Yes, we are one of those people that think of our pets as our children, sort of. He is very vocal, and loves to eat. He’s a pretty good cuddler, and he is also a peace maker. When Zen and Bambi, our two female cats, start a noisy fight he comes running and puts himself in between them. Here he is as I am about to give him a treat.
YoYo runs on top of the fridge when we have guests. After a while he comes down to investigate. I have to feed him the most wet food, so the other two cats have time to eat theirs. Otherwise he will eat his and try to steal theirs.
He used to try to play with our old dog Barney, though Barney never seemed to get the joke. Every time I would bring Barney in from a walk, YoYo would lie in a special hiding place. Then I would take off Barney’s leash and harness, and Barney would do his victory run through the house. YoYo would jump out and ambush him. Barney ignored him so really YoYo would only swipe at Barney’s backside as he ran by. YoYo was always so pleased with himself every time, and it was so adorable how he never tired of this game.
Here’s to our chubby, playful peace maker. One of the wonderful spirits that makes our home home.
