Niko, meet Milo

Niko's been happily living in peace at my little studio apartment for the last year. Now? I've moved into a slightly larger 1 bedroom with wood floors (no more carpet chewing!) and brought home a new member to the family: Milo the cat. This 9 month old cat I adopted from the wonderful Cat Adoption Team shelter.

Everyone's been asking me how the two have been getting along together so far, and my answer is this: cautiously optimistic. Milo still doesn't quite know what to make to Niko's quills, but isn't afraid of him nor trying to eat him (phew!). Niko meanwhile is quite aware there's a curious cat and is doing his best to pretend he's just a spiky rock. But I think over time with supervised together time Niko will get less shy and explore the apartment even while Milo's around. A little video below of their interactions so far.

Milo: tap.. tap.. tap ouch! ..... tap "what is this thing?!?"

Your pets are so cute and adorable and I'm happy that the two both love each other so much. We all love pets and we just don't want to let them stay in their pet house so as much as possible, they can play freely in our home. But our pets may really cause pet stains on our carpets and rugs that's why we must have carpet cleaning (Sugar Land, TX) regularly. In Katy, carpet cleaning shops have a lot cleaning services that the residents love so much!
