Teeny Tony. Though with the way he’s eating lately, he’s not going to be teeny for much longer! One of the things I love about kittens this age is how day after day, you can put them in front of a plate of canned food and they sniff it and walk away. And you can put some of it in their mouth, and they spit it out and walk away. Then suddenly, one day you put a little of the food in their mouth and they look like they’ve been zapped, they go all stiff, they swallow what you put in their mouth and they wildly sniff around for more, and then they eat and eat and eat. Tony hit that point in his development on Wednesday, and he hasn’t looked back!
Videos! I’ve got a bunch for you today.
First, this is what Tony sounds like when he meows. He sounds like a squeaky wheel! (Pardon the blurry picture; I am clearly clueless when it comes to things like focusing!)
Then, Carmela figures out what this whole “playing” thing is about.
Next, Tony gets all up in Livia’s plate of food and noms while she watches patiently.
And it’s feeding time at the Milk Bar.
Lastly, some general playing-time footage.
