So yesterday we picked up our new ragdoll kitten (haven't come up with a name yet) and Dakota is obsessed with the kitten. We were going to make sure we gave extra attention to Dakota but he didn't want it.. he just wanted to watch the new addition. As of right now the kitten has claimed the kids playroom as his favorite room, which works out good because Dakota has never stepped foot in that room and that's the only room he was never allowed in. The kids are also happy with the kitten being in there. The two haven't had too much interaction but Dakota is dying to play with him. Dakota seems to be listening pretty good when we tell him to "leave it" and just to lay down and relax but if the kitten gets going running around so does he. Dakota also didn't want to go to sleep last night and whined for quite some time in "his room". We blocked the kitten into the playroom for the night so he wouldn't get into anything. I found him this morning curled up between a couple big stuffed animals. I had cats growing up but this is the first cat that I've ever had to take full care of myself and I think my main obstacle is keeping the boxer from squishing the ragdoll with his gaint paws or licking him to death!
