Daily Life: Mr. Peanut Butter

Two months ago, we added a new member to our little family! Growing up, I never really kept cats as pets, we only had dogs. However, at the last house we lived at, our roommates had cats and somehow I fell in love with the little critters and decided I needed my very own. I picked out this orange guy at the pet rescue center (he was known as Theo back then!) because he walked into my lap and fell over, wanting a belly rub. He's pretty friendly and affectionate. We considered several names for him like Calcifer, Simba, Pan...but in the end we chose Mr. Peanut Butter because it's a character from a cartoon called "Bojack the Horseman," who is actually a dog but, whatever! It cracks me up to call a cat "mister" and his coloring works for the name obviously. By now, we've shortened it to PB, or most often just Peeb, or Peebs.

He has a weird habit of sucking on my clothes. Taken away from his mother too soon, from what I've researched. But still, if any of you cat folks out there have any tips on how to curb this behavior I would love to hear about it! It's cute until he's attacking you for it in the middle of the night, sucking loudly and kneading on your face with his sharp claws. Bad habit aside, he's still an awesome little companion!

  1. Awww cute kitty! His little habit is so sweet! I wonder if he would actually take a pacifier... like newborn size. Haha! I know that sounds weird but it could work! Or designate one clothing item or blankie for him to suck on.
