Kitty UpdateWoman in the Middle | June 29, 2015
I am sure all you cat and animal lovers out there wouldn’t mind a kitten update and I am happy to provide it.
Both kittens are eating like pigs and have been tested and have no parasites. The flea problem is going away and both are bright eyed and bushytailed, even the little guy with the broken leg. The day after we went to the vet the little broken black kitty had a complete change in personality. It was like he knew were on his side. He now purrs just at the sight of us, loves having his chin scratched, and is all around adorable and no longer feral at all.
The orange kitty has been slower to come around. He is better, but still hisses sometimes. This weekend my college friend Barb was visiting from out of town. Barb is a cat whisperer. She held the orange kitty for me while I cleaned the carrier. She draped him over the front of her neck and rubbed him and he actually just stretched out and fell asleep. The rest of us were walking around, leaning down to look at him, and he just ignored us all. It was quite the change. But Barb went home early this morning and he may not be quite so good for us as we are not the cat whisperer that she is.
Meanwhile, we think we know how the little black guy broke his leg. He is quite the adventuresome little guy! While his brother slept on Barb, our friend Sue babysat little black kitty. He was trying to get away and explore almost the whole time. Sue finally has to sit on the floor after he tried to jump out of her arms. As one point, completely unexpectedly, the little guy with the broken leg leapt from the floor on one side of Sue’s leg to the other. Over her leg, never touching it! With a broken leg! Amazing! But I think he used up a life or two with whatever move broke his leg. Note how blurry he is in the photo below. That is because he wouldn’t stop moving!
