Treat Time

So far Harrison has showed no interest in treats.  Today he was in hungry mode and so got a large breakfast, dinner, cleaned up the kittens dinner and then a second dinner.  Good time to take a nap.

Davout was very interested in treat time…but not so much in getting up and getting one.

Rhea cruised up and ate most of them,  but Davout did get some too.

Somewhat Odd Things

Rhea has decided that the best place to sit in the living room is now atop this little pile of junk.  It did give a good view of Harrison chilling nearby.

Davout perched on the furniture to watch.

Harrison came over for some scritches, which made him yawn

Some Playtime

Today I brought out the “da bird” toy.  Of course Rhea got first crack.

I love it when they carry off the prey to their “home base” although it is impossible to get a good picture of it.

Anna’s Not Good Day

It started last week when one of the water fountains broke down.  I ordered a new pump from Amazon and swapped in a pump that a fellow at work coincidentally gave me just a few days before.  His own cat had died a while back but he just got all the stuff together recently.

So how does this effect Anna?  So far it doesn’t.  But then in the last few days I noticed her pump was running slowly too.  So this morning after cleaning and reassembling the first fountain I swapped it for the one in Anna’s room and took it away to clean.  She was a little disturbed.  She’s not good with change.

So I figured in for a penny, in for a pound.  I decided to put Anna in another bedroom and really clean out her room from top to bottom.

So like always when I go into that room, this brought Anna’s nemesis Rhea there.  She was so interested in being in there that she ignored the moving furniture, the tossing out into the hall of a bunch of accumulated stuff and nonsense, and the vacuum cleaner going right up to her.   I don’t think she is that scared of the thing, but at least before she gave it some room.

I went into Anna’s temporary room to check up and she ran past me out the door and tried to head back to her room.  So first she runs into this stuff piled in the hall in between, then she goes face to face with Rhea blocking her way back.  The result was a medium intensity cat fracas before Anna got back into her room with Rhea chasing her.

Then when I put Rhea outside the pet fence and tried to continue cleaning, Anna was so freaked out by the vacuum that I had to put her back in the spare room again.

A Little Outside Time

I let the cats out back for a little walk.  Harrison went to the far part of the yard and then almost all the way back.  He seemed to run out of steam on this rock, blocking Davout from going out himself.

Mealtime and Playtime

Harrison had a good day eating today, so look for him to skip meals tomorrow.  But he did make a nice entrance.

He then sat down and waited for me to play with Davout using a wand toy.  Big Eyes!

Rhea can match that.  Anything he can do, she can do better!

Including a WONKY WHISKER!  Is nothing sacred??

Little Steps

Harrison had a good day today, still some sniffles but he’s felt well enough to play on his own with a toy and check out the back patio.

Rhea had an interesting day messing with Anna.  This morning I was playing with Anna and Rhea popped over the back of the sofa and flattened down like a hunter.  Anna didn’t see her.  This evening she did it again and I brought her down for Anna to see.  When Anna hisses she wants to charge, but she’s not mad.

Rhea left after a bit, and Davout crept in and accidentally collided with Anna as she tried to move around the sofa.  Hisses exploded, and Rhea instantly came rushing in driving Anna back away from Davout and they had a bit of a standoff after the hissing ran down.

Toofless Tuesday

Today was the first day without his pain medication.  I saw no sign of him being uncomfortable, and he ate quite a bit of food today.  He was more active too, going upstairs for a drink a time or two.

Last night he came and slept on the bed tucking himself around my head and shoulders. Before it seemed he did this when he didn’t feel well.

Meanwhile the kittens were slacking away on the cat tree.

Checkup for Harrison

Poor Davout was getting pretty interested in my dinner today, so I figured he was due for some treats.

Earlier, Harrison had a lunchtime date with the vets to get his medication patch removed and his extractions checked.  Everything looked to be healing up well, and he hasn’t seemed to be feeling bad after it was removed.

Did somebody say “Treats”?

Rhea decides to take matters into her own…mouth.

Some Sun

Harrison continues to get more active, even in finding new spots to nap in the afternoon. He’s still a bit sneezy still.

Davout still likes his feather toy.

Pretty Rhea.
