Meet Franklin: A Cute Kitten and a Little Terror
Don't let that cute face fool you.
Meet Franklin, the newest addition to the Dodson family. It's now been almost a month to the day, when Erin and I went to the animal shelter in Golden, Colo. just to look at the cats. Of course, when you see a face like his, you can't say no.
It took Franklin about two weeks to become fully comfortable with downtown Denver living. He has it a little bit better at our downtown condo as compared to the cage he shared with six other kittens at the shelter (although Erin and I sometimes feel like we're in a cage, as our condo is pretty tiny!).
Like any kitten, he enjoys playing with his many toys, he likes scratching things (including our bed... we need a scratching post desperately!) and chowing down on wet cat food.
Of course, he's not perfect.
Franklin is typically pretty good at night, sleeping next to us all night. Well, until 5 a.m. that is. For some reason, he's on an automatic wake up time between 5 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. At that point, he'll start pouncing at us, begging one of us to wake up and feed him.
After we give him his can of wet food for the day, he jumps back into bed and gets right into our face, licking his chops and spreading his gross cat food breath.
He's not perfect by any means... but we love him.
