Davout Day

Davout has a nice long tail as well.  His is a bit denser than Rhea’s, and almost as long in proportion.  His fur tufts between the toes are getting to be pale brown.

Both the kittens were up on the perch, but Davout is a lot easier to entice downward — just bring out the camera.  Rhea is a tougher one – she will watch from above for a while until joining the others.

Then she hangs about on the margins to scope out the territory…

Davout has developed these pale silvery hairs on his legs – not sure if this is a kitteny thing or a real change.  He has some darker marks on his belly from sitting on the cool floor like this – the pointing gene color is temperature deptendent – the cooler the body, the darker the hair.

Everyone wants to hear Davout’s musical trilling or humming. I’ll try, but I will first have to find when he does it so I can be ready when it happens again.  He’s done it a few times today, once to Rhea, once when looking at Julie walking the rail, and a few times poking about on his own.

Gus and Rhea were on the bed this morning and when I moved some Rhea jumped over to the spot nearby where Gus was sitting up and sat right beside him looking at me, only a few inches apart.   Gus was a bit surprised but not angry or scared, and they hung out for a bit there together.

  2. Can’t wait to hear Davout!
    Love that Gus and Rhea were sitting next to each other. Is cuddling that far away? MOL

    My cats have a Birman father, and both have those silvery leg hairs you mention.
