A Little Update

Harrison hasn’t been shown for a while, but he’s doing fine.  He’s snuffling but it has been a while since he’s been sneezing out snot.  His eyes are less goopy, even with Lysine just being intermittent.

He’s settling down to a pattern.  He is hungry for 12 hours in a row and then not for the next 12 hours.  He tends to put down a big can per day overall which was about what Julie and Gus used to eat per day, although they were much larger.

He’s finding other patterns too.  Now he tends to get into my bed after I get up in the mornings, especially if its a little cool.  By midmorning that room gets pretty sunny and warm.  When he’s in his hungry hours he tends to hang out downstairs so he can get up and grab a bite every so often.  If he’s eaten it all, or mushed it too flat he will come and sit mournfully near me until I add some more or mound up what he’s left so he can get at it.

This rug got mounded up by the kittens rushing around today and Davout was hiding behind it when I turned on the undercover mouse toy.

Rhea watches it move from the other side.

Now its over there!

Both Rhea and Davout had a little visiting time with Anna in her room.  I had to keep an eye on Rhea as she had ideas about rushing Anna.  Anna did a few mild hisses and was only a little agitated.  I don’t know if it is leading anywhere, but I’m trying to get Rhea less intense about trying to bust in.  She’s been digging at the cardboard that keeps her from squeezing through the bars.

Davout was much nicer, of course, and thus got only a tiny hiss.  I think it is some good sign that she doesn’t seem to care if they nibble at her food or hang in her room.  Its just a proximity thing.

I finally tossed out that egg carton bed they all liked.  They’d dug great holes in the side and bottom of it.  Davout at least has used the Amazon box easily enough.

    Love that second pic — Harrison looks like he’s going to order pizza and watch TV.
