The Debut of Sheamus Popoki Aloysius Mango

Greetings and salutations everyone! I'm Sheamus Popoki or SPAM as my new grandpa calls me.
I'm arrived in my new home last week and am settling in pretty well. I was a bit of a scaredy cat when I first arrived, hiding in the closet in a corner where Mom couldn't see me but 9 and Chani could. They stared at my location and Mom was able to get me out of my hiding spot. But now, I'm out and about and enjoying the front room. I've even begun to greet Mom in the morning when she wakes up, though, I'm not sleeping with her and my siblings yet...

After some initial hissing from my new brofur and sisfur, things have settled down. Oh, I made sure to growl and hiss at 9 to show that I'm not afraid, but so far, we're getting along well. Though, 9 tends to swat at my tail. I think he thinks my tail is a giant feather. Chani didn't like sharing the area under the kotatsu in the beginning, but last night we were just fine. Oh, and Mom managed to cuddle with me and Chani and then with me and 9 without any growling or hissing for any of us! To tell the truth, I think 9 and Chani were more annoyed with Mom than they were about being next to me.

Now, I do hide behind the futon couch a lot and Mom has to drag me out. But, when I do come out on my own, I make sure to purr and rub against her. She says I have the softest fur and paws ever.

In case you've forgotten, this is what I looked like back when Mom first met me. I know I tried to tempt her, but she resisted. So I had to be patient.

I made sure to use the big eyes on her. I'm not sure how she withstood my charm back then. I mean, look at me! And my cute little paws!

And I tried to use my belly, but I didn't have any discernible belly spots back then, so Mom resisted.

Now that my glorious coat has grown in fully, I have some belly spots. In some pictures, it looks like my spots are just shadows, but when my fur is all nicely arranged, I gots belly spots. Mom cannot resist me anymore!

I'm very happy to be here and in my new furever home. Mom will have to update the banner, though she won't change the name of the blog.

Oh! I'm supposed to say something like:

Douzo Yoroushiku Onegaishimasu!

Glad to meet everyone here on the internet!
