So I think this is mostly on Cheeto, but her and Auri don’t seem to want to be around each other. Cheeto hisses and swats, while Auri yelps and tucks herself into her body. However, there are times when they seem almost friendly. The other day I caught Cheeto actually cleaning Auri. Now, Cheeto gets along with the other two kids (Tesla and Mordechai) but since we’ve got Auri she just does not seem like she wants to be nice. Hoping she grows out of it.
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.
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
So far Mordechai has adapted well to having another cat in the house, maybe it’s easier with a kitten, but Mordechai has often been an easy going cat (as long as I don’t look at the vet visit bills). Except for the occasional hissing when Cheeto bites his ear when he’s sleeping and him playing a bit too rough (this will be his first playmate since he scares tesla so she doesn’t play with him.
He does like to clean up after her, cleaning her face after she eats, making sure all her potty breaks are covered in the litter box and eating the rest of her food when she doesn’t finish. I actually think he’s enjoying the fact that there is another cat in the household. I think he’s just waiting for her energy to die down.
So far Cheeto is adjusting really well in her new home, We has yet to have any bathroom accidents and while we are currently teaching her it is not polite to climb up people while they are eating everything seems super well. Her favorite place to see is apparently in our bed because when we don’t see her we immediately know where she would be, although we have to be careful because she is ridiculous small buried under our comforter. I’ll post another update with how the other pets are adjusting to having a new sister soon.
Is it really a foster failure if it’s planned? Currently Cheeto is 7 weeks old and learning to live with a grouchy Mordechai and hovering Tesla. So far she enjoys cuddling and exploring her new house. Cheeto was given to the Humane Society with a her two other sisters and her mama, though her mama did reject the babies. She was bottle fed for all of her life and is the smallest of her lot. He fits right into the palm of my husbands hands. I fell in love with her since the first time I saw her and immediately applied to foster with the intention of adopting.
Always wanted to do a Tongue Tuesday but I can never get a picture of Mordechai’s Tongue. Well I succeeded. I’ll have to be on the look out for another one!
