It’s only been a few months since he was with us so I’m sure y’all remember him, but here’s a picture of RonRon (the kitten formerly known as Tank) when he was with us back in November.
And here he is now!
I am not the tiniest bit surprised at how well that boy is doing, and I love seeing that sweet face again!
One thing that’s different in the foster room this time around, that I haven’t had to deal with in the past, is that there’s no area Charles can’t get to. He’s a fully grown cat, and he’s got excellent jumping skills. Thus far he’s walked up along the shelf over the crate – the one area we didn’t have doors put on, because we figured kittens would never be able to get up there. He’s jumped up onto the wire shelves in the closet, which are 6 feet up (he jumps from the cabinet under the window). He also jumps up onto the top of the built-in cabinet where – if this were a bedroom – a TV would sit. He’s knocked a few things down, but there’s no real damage he can do now that I moved everything breakable behind the doors of the cabinets with doors on them.
In any case, I tell you all that so I can tell you this: on the wall over the built-in (TV) cabinet is where the feather teasers are kept. Every morning when I walk in, there’s one particular teaser laying on the floor. I figured that he was getting up there, knocking a teaser onto the floor, and then playing with it.
So yesterday morning I was scooping litter boxes, and I stepped out of the closet (where the litter boxes are) to see Charles knock the teaser to the floor. He jumped down after it and picked it up, walked over to where Caroline was sitting, dropped it in front of her, and chirruped at her. She sniffed at it, batted at it for a moment, then licked him on top of the head, and walked off.
Then I died from the cute.
