Would you please let me know where you found the X shaped scratcher? I think my boys would really enjoy it. Thank you!
That is the Petstages Soothing Cat Easy Life Hammock and Scratcher. I got mine by using my Fresh Step points on the Fresh Step website, but they’re apparently not offering it any more. The only place I’m able to find it online is at Amazon, here.
It’s probably just about the most popular piece of “furniture” (if you can call it that) in the house. There’s always a cat on it!
Love those blue boys!! It was hard to tell them apart as youngsters, not anymore. Does Elwood let Jake have any of the treats?
Although Elwood is a big eater (obviously), I find that Jake is the one who’ll come take food right out of your hand. He’s much smaller than Elwood, but he’s not starving to death. Maybe Elwood’s got a slower metabolism. Yeah, that’s it!
Any changes in Maggie’s behavior? (We want kittens!)
No changes – she just keeps getting bigger and bigger! Still eating tons, still coming over for love and petting, still greeting me at the door and talking to me!
How’s Rufus finding the great wide world?
Rufus is spending the better part of the day under the couch in the front room. He lets me pull him out from under the couch, and he’ll sit in my lap and purr. I take him into the guest bedroom and give him some time to use the litter box and eat without interference from the other cats, then I open the door again. Sometimes he stays in the guest bedroom and hangs out on his cat tree, and sometimes he sniffs around the house a little before he ends up under the couch again.
Yesterday, Corbie hung out with Rufus for a little while under the couch.
I think Rufus will come out when he wants to – until then, I’ll pull him out from time to time and give him lots of love and snuggles.
Yesterday, Alice had to go to the vet. She cried pitifully all the way there, and then she fought like a little demon when they tried to take her temperature (which they were ultimately unable to do), and then she gave the vet the dirtiest look when she dared to listen to Alice’s lungs.
Poor Alice has allergies, and the pollen is making her sit around with her mouth open because she can hardly breathe through her nose. I just wanted to make sure it wasn’t something worse, and was relieved to find out it wasn’t. Like her daddy, Alice just suffers from allergies. She’ll have a miserable week or two, then hopefully she’ll feel better.
Not that being all stuffed up has slowed her down, you understand. She’s still eating just fine, picking fights, playing.
Just occasionally, she needs a nap. With her fangs showing and her tongue sticking out a bit.
