Loooook who it is – it’s Shecky (now Gir Shecky), one of Lucy’s Fools, who was born right here at Crooked Acres on April 1st of last year! This smile kills me dead.
John says: Here is a Gir Shecky update. After a very hard day of inspecting the fish tank filter (which he does on a daily bases) he needed a nap before moving on to check the kitchen sink (we have a very small leak and he checks it for us) and then he moved his way to climb the tree (sadly we will be taking it down this weekend).
Thanks for the update, John – he sure is growing up to be one gorgeous boy!
Fred likes to do this with the kittens – flips ’em over onto their backs, then basically massages their backs while they lay there in his hands. They purr like crazy, look around, and when they decide they’ve had enough, they kind of slide out of his hands. Here, Stefani is looking around.
I did this with them when they were smaller, but they’re getting a little too big for me now; Fred’s got bigger hands, so he can still handle them. I’m pretty sure he started this with the Swimmers, who loved it. Of course, it only works with kittens who like to be held on their backs. King Nubbs doesn’t like to be flipped onto his back, so he gets his daily massage when he’s laying on his side or standing in front of one of us.
