Herbie & the scary Virus

Herbert og Virus
This is Herbie. He's Aunties kitty and he's a pretty cool guy. He's completely deaf, like some white kitties are, so he's been bullied a lot by other kitties. He came in to the cat rescue centre where Auntie used to volunteer (before she got pregnant) and she fell in love with him.

The reason for him putting on his not-happy-at-all face was that Mom came by with Virus hoping that the two would learn to get along. Herbie got very scared and screamed a LOT! That made Virus a little scairt, too!

But he did some cuddling with auntie.

That was kinda nice!

And he got to meet Harald, too - he still volunteers at the "Cat House" shelter.

Herbie was very curious, though, and kept approaching Virus. They were both a bit scairt when this picture was taken, but Virus smily-blinked at Herbie and he went away again. They had several more encounters and then Mom took Virus home. Guess who was tired for a little while? That was pretty nice.. Tee hee... And they're gonna do this thing again. The good thing was that Virus totally respected Herbie when he was doing growlyfaces at him. That was apparently a first for poor H. He's used to kitties always attacking him and being mean. But hopefully he'll learn that big eared, curly ones are okay. At least if they're called Virus.

It sounds like you were a very good guest, Virus. We are happy to hear that there might be a beautiful friendship developing in the future:)

We are also happy to hear that handsome Herbie has a good home where he is being taken care of and doesn't have to worry about being bullied:)

Virus, you are very well behaved! I think Herbie has such a cute face.

Goodness me, both these cats are truly wonderful and 'working' volunteer in a cat-shelter is something I've been thinking about for a long time now.

Great blog, happy that I've found it!

Cats are funny. They don't make friends as easily as doggies. Maybe next time Bajas should go along to break the ice.

We do hope Herbie gets used to Virus. We bet he would like a friend. Herbie is a very pretty kitty.


Tweedles -- that's me... said...

Oh we hope a friendship develops!
Herbie is a beatiful kitty and so ia Virus. It would be so great for them to have each other for a friend. Maybe just a matter of time.

I am sure next time Herbie sees Virus will feel more confident!
