It is sincerely difficult to believe it's only been a year since Tuxedo welcomed her baby brother into our house with extended claws and that sweet hiss that I heard all too often for our first few months together. I remember being on the verge of tears the day after I brought Flavor Flav home, thinking that there was no way I could keep him and prevent Tuxedo from eating him alive.
Which was a problem, because after only 48 hours I was sold, he was mine and I couldn't bear to see him go. Lucky for all parties involved we stuck it out and today I don't know that I could go without being greeted by 13lbs of loving fuzz when I get home for work every day and I know (as evidenced when Flav went to the spa for 2 days) that Tuxedo would be lost without her baby bro.
It feels like, though it's only been a year, that Flav has been a part of our little family from the beginning. Seems our little man is all grown up. He's no longer covert, in fact you can ALWAYS hear him coming. It's like he's constantly stomping around...imagine this.
A snuggle bug for me, and a best friend/ultimate fighting training partner for Tux. He'll steal your heart within minutes and paint your clothes with fur before you even know what he's been up to.
I love you bunches my little blue eyed boy. Happy birthday!
