So, Auri has pretty much settled right in here at the household. Tesla and her play a lot which I love. At 16 weeks she has received the last of her puppy shots and now can be fully introduced into society. She is scheduled for a spay in March, so crossing my fingers for that. So far the only places she has been to is the vet so we are going to try to make sure she knows that car rides do not always mean shots and stuff in the butt.
Telsa and Auri get along well. They play almost constantly which is great. Cheeto and Mordechai don’t really like the puppy energy and are waiting for it to die down. She has a long way to go as far as potty training is concerned, and we are trying to teach her not to jump and lick people to death.
Other than that, it’s going pretty smoothly!
Mordechai has found a weird friend in the form of our Saw puppet. He loves the thing! He cuddles up to it everyday and I have to wonder why. Is Mordechai into creepy things? We did have to move the poor guy because ultimately he is a figure and Mordechai was leaving hair all over him, and kneeding on him so we were worried about holes.
I am thinking of looking for a small stuffed version so he can have his best friend back.
Tesla is a hairy dog. Her hair grows faster than weeds, I swear. So we are constantly having to have her groomed. We could do it, but I would rather have her looking cute and presentable rather than someone looking at her with pity (didn’t we hate it when our mothers cut our hair. No mushroom cuts, thank you very much!)
She really does look like a brand new dog when all that hair is gone. She loses like 5 pounds and suddenly looks younger and energized. It’s quite a difference!
As you can see Cheeto is getting really big. She has calmed down significantly since we have gotten her. Which is great. She’s not annoying Mordechai anymore, she’s not running across us while we sleeping and she doesn’t use her claws to climb us anymore. She does still purr just by looking at her and is extremely cuddly. She lets me hold her in my arms (something Mordechai refuses on letting me do) and she gives kisses.
So far no health problems which am I so grateful for!
Keep checking in for updates!
I see You!
Why is she eating the tree!
If you have a Cat and celebrate Christmas, then you know the hassle of having a Christmas tree. For some reason, the twinkling lights, dangling ornaments and the branches of the tree make for an exciting cat adventure. Who knew?
While Mordechai does do a little tree climbing, Cheeto has been the biggest culprit. Not only does she climb, she also bites the tree and tries to open the presents. The little pest can’t wait for Christmas soon enough. While apparently you usually keep the tree up until New Year’s day, we usually take the tree down the day after Christmas.
If your cat doesn’t do this then you have a system down and are super lucky
Over the Thanksgiving holiday we added a new member to our household. Meet Aurelian a Border Collie and Labrador mix!
We are currently getting to know our new little girl, who is just a bundle of puppy energy. We are currently in the process of potty training and teaching it’s not okay to bite mommy and daddy’s face.
Stay Tuned for me info!
My little Cheeto is getting so big. She finally has all her shots and has completely adapted to our family life. Her energy level is still completely out of control and she still does not understand that her nails hurt when she uses them. She still has a bit of a food problem that when she smells any kind of meat she tries to get it in any way possible. She has stopped growling and hissing when she eats wet food and has actually been okay sharing food with mordechai.
She also has a hard time sleeping when we are. I can’t wait until she mellows out a bit more, so I don’t have to spend hours playing with her just to get her a little tired. She seriously has boundless energy. I don’t remember Mordechai being this crazy.
