Mancat Monday: Life With Kittens is Normal

life with kittens Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
Well, it’s been a while now since the “kittens” moved in with us.  Sister Precious was right on Saturday, they are a bit big to be called kittens, but they will be in that active stage for a while yet.  Anyways, I thought I’d give you an update on how things are going with Brother Simon and Sister Seal.

Fairly normal is how I would describe it.  Most of the time they are just here being a happy part of the family.  There are still those times when Brother Simon goes charging up to one of us and some hissing happens, but those events are fewer and further between now.  Most of the time it’s by accident.  Brother Simon may go running through the dining room and not realize one of the sisters was in the pathway.  In the even of a hissy alert, it starts and is over with before you know it.  That’s a lot of progress from the earlier days.  Most of the time Brother Simon just likes laying around with the rest of us.

That sweet Sister Seal is, well, sweet.  She it venturing out of the bedroom some and has made it as far as the main hallway.  She’s even had a drink out of the big pond water bowl several times.  That;s great progress for her and we’re determined not to rush her progress.  Whenever she wants to venture out she will, at her own pace.  You may remember the photo I posted of Sister Seal drinking out of the bathroom faucet.  We’re all kind of anxious to see what happens when she comes out far enough to discover the fountain.  She will probably like that, at least we think she will.

That’s about it for me today.  Oh, before I go, did you know that some Sister has a special day coming up this week?  You won’t want to miss it.  Have a fun week everyone!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Good things are going grand. A short hissy face isn’t too bad haha at her own pace is the way to be indeed.

Angel Sammy and Teddy

Teddy is now a year and a few months old and is still acting like an 8 week old kitten……I’m not sure when “technically” they become “young adults” but Teddy isn’t slowing down yet. When we got Sammy he was not QUITE as wild as Teddy – they’re all different and do their own thing! Sounds like Simon and Seal are fitting in nicely though and learning new things every single day!

Hugs, Pam

It’s been a long, long time since we had kittens around, and their energy level! But don’t let them grow up too fast.

It’s wonderful things are well with Simon and Seal! I would love to see how Seal will like the fountain 🙂

Life is easier when everyone grows up enough to figure out boundaries, and learns how to respect “personal space”. Sounds like things are progressing and life is getting into a routine. That is progress for the youngsters indeed.

Wow, I’m SO happy to hear that life is progressing so well for Simon and Seal. It sounds like Simon has a feisty streak (but is a very fun guy) and Seal is a bundle of sweetness!
