Note: Binga told me that Sparkle approved this blog post before I moved in. I am not sure this is true, but she insisted, and I was kind of scared to say no.
Rule #1: All kittens must past the smell test. No exceptions.
Rule #2: Kittens do not take priority in photo sessions. Photobombing by resident torties should not only be allowed, but welcomed.
Rule #3: Any food set in front of the kitten must be taste tested by the resident tortie. If the resident tortie decides she likes it, she is allowed to eat as much as she wants.
Rule #4: All deliveries must be thoroughly inspected by the resident tortie first, and that includes any packages that are addressed specifically to the kitten.
Rule #5: All boxes belong to the resident tortie. The kitten may have the box when the resident tortie becomes bored with it… if that ever happens.
When the kitten is found to be in compliance with all of the above, then and only then may she be allowed to touch noses with the resident tortie.
