Jennifer, who adopted Starsky and Hutch – now Jack and Percy – has a question. I wasn’t able to help, but maybe y’all might have a suggestion or two?
Need some help or ideas.. Percy (mostly) has a tendency to get up through the night starting at 3 and crying and wander around the house crying. The more I gather (sleepily), he is just lonely and wants everyone up. Both Jack and Percy are super happy to have me awake in the morning and act this way in the morning if they make it to the alarm clock. I try to holler out to Percy to reassure him I am nearby – – and to come back to bed. NEEDY is an understatement. Percy even knocks things off the dresser – – I think to get my attention? Yes, the animals are out of control and in charge. I even try wearing them out at night so they will sleep in to 5 or 6 the next morning.
I really don’t have a spare room to put them in. And shutting bedroom doors isn’t an option since there is a dog in the house who gets up for a drink and then the reclusive cat comes out of the closet to eat and walk around.
Is there something I can do for him? I think it is him being needy/spoiled? Thoughts?
Thoughts? Suggestions? Please leave a comment and help out! Jennifer needs her sleep because she’s got to work to buy food for those silly kittens!
Do you see the size of Newbery’s back feet? They’re HUGE. They’re like the size of Razzie’s entire body! And yes, he’s huge and she’s tiny. He’s over three pounds, and she’s just over two! She’s the smallest of the bunch, he’s the biggest by far. Darwin and Logie are right around two and a half pounds.
Razzie, snoozing under my desk, on top of my slippers. I didn’t even know she was there ’til she tickled me with her whiskers, and I jumped about a mile because I thought there was some big, scary bug under there.
I have GOT to get a video of the Noms at snack time, because they are not very vocal kittens unless they think they’re about to get a snack. Then they howl their little bitty heads off.
Occasionally Razzie, who has a very distinctive husky voice, will get lost in the house. She’ll be in the front room when we’re in the computer room or vice versa, and she seems to suddenly realize she’s alone, and so she’ll start yelling “Hey! Where are you guys?!” It is utterly adorable – and as soon as she locates us, she stops yelling and acts all casual, like “Yeah, I was just wondering.”
