|Rappy, Timmy and Jet|
When Rappy first came to live with us, his given name was Noah, but he had such a rambunctious nature we changed it to Rappy, short for Rapscallion. He had to leave the home of my friend Margaret because he terrorised her Calico cat Haddie. We wondered how our Callie would react to him, as she is Haddie's older sibling. As soon as Rappy saw her, he wanted to play and immediately jumped on her, so there was some spitting and hissing, but Rappy soon turned his attention to Timmy, our ginger and white cat. Timmy wasn't too thrilled about that, being a much older cat, but eventually things settled down and both Callie and Timmy tolerated Rappy's rambunctious antics. When Jet joined the family he and Rappy became firm friends, and that took the pressure off both Timmy and Calli.
That Pesky Little Brat
Noah, that pesky little brat
is always jumping on my back,
from behind the door he leaps at me
is there no place I can be free?
He follows me from place to place
forever, always, in my face.
I think I’ve found a place to hide
then he appears at my side.
He instigates a boxing bout,
one day I’ll give him such a clout.
He bites my neck and nips my tail
and if I don’t play he starts to wail.
They say he is a real cute cat
To me he’s that pesky little brat!

I'm killing this BIG mouse that Mama made for us
I think it is dead already...!
One of Jet's favourite places to relax and observe the world.
