Excitement Needed

Rhea was looking fairly bored when photo time was nearing…

Harrison had followed me about as I made dinner.  A few times I heard him knocking about a cat toy on the floor, all on his own.  The kittens are cautious of him, and curious.  They watch him closely, which he ignores entirely.  Rhea sometimes comes close and snifs at him, which he also ignores.

Harrison did make some very spry moves on the toy, which the camera missed.  When it came close to his front, he almost always hooked the thread with a paw.

I did catch the end of this half turn and lunge.

He seems a bit awkward, but this probably is from the loss muscle mass on the body.  He seems to arch his spine more that most cats, which might be from that too.  This might get better.

Davout had done his fur up into a very thick, full fluff today.  With Rhea and Harrison constraining him, he was interested but reluctant to make major moves.

Rhea is pushy as usual and went directly to the front of the line.  I dangled it over the top of the large post and she would stare it down and climb the post after it.

Crazy Whiskers!!

Here’s a better view of Davout in his best fur coat.

    So nice to see some lively expressions on Harrison’s face! Love Davout and his orbiting whiskers.


  2. Davout is such a fluff monster! Rhea is so cute, even if she is pushy, but she’s a girl so it’s ok! And Harrison, poor little mite! Hope he fills out soon! but so glad he’s playing!

    Mr. Lollipop Harrison is improving! I just want to feed him cans and cans of protein to build up that little body. He has a great spirit, though.

      I do feed him cans and cans. Sometimes he overdoes it and spits some up which slows him down.


      • Lurkertype says:

        Little or big cans?

        Poor little guy’s stomach has taken a beating.


      • Oldcat says:

        The equivalent of 2 or 3 little cans twice a day if he’s hungry. From time to time he will skip a half day or so when he’s off. Its the expensive brand, too. The others get one little can twice a day (the kittens split one between them) and eat dry for the rest.

        I’m glad he’s getting plenty of the best. My kitties get 1/3 of a small can 3x a day and crunchies overnight. I try to feed them all-natural, grain-free, but sometimes they gotta have the Fancy Feast.
