Charleston is slowly warming up to me. He still acts like he’s going to run away when I reach for him, but he doesn’t move quite as fast – and he flops onto his back with only a little coaxing. I’ll make a lovebug out of him yet!
Raleigh and Charleston, hiding from me under the curvy scratcher, the day after I got them home. They hadn’t yet figured out what it means when I walk into the room with a jar of baby food and a spoon.
There’s a screw in the wall on either side of the doorway so that when we have mother cats and their babies, we can put a small barrier in the doorway that the mother can hop over, but will keep the babies out of the closet (and out of the clumping litter). Chesnee discovered one of the screws, and thought that hanging from the screw while biting it was a good way to pass the time.
Remember how yesterday you were all “Wow, four brown tabbies!” and “Wow, I can’t believe there isn’t one that isn’t a brown tabby!” and “Wow, four is such an even number. You totally need an odd number!” and “When are you going to play ‘Meet yer new partner’? You haven’t played that game in like two months!” Remember that?
Well, Carolina kittens, MEET YER NEW PARTNER!
More about her tomorrow!
Maxi in the side yard (that is the side yard that I JUST raked last week. Note that it desperately needs raking again. Note also that Newt is lurking back there behind the gate, keeping an eye on Maxi.)
