Twister Has Grown!
He’s had his latest shots and thanks to the vet who raised him he has no problem getting in and out of the crate or riding in the car.
She came to say hello to him when we were done with his inoculations and she could definitely see he’d grown. We’re getting to know his limitations too – because his eyes aren’t quite right his depth perception is a little off, so when he jumps onto something he occasionally overshoots his mark. 😀 He loves playing in the bath. A little jingle-ball rolls around like mad when swatted only slightly and he bounces around after it ‘coz it doesn’t really roll away.
He’s happily using the same litter boxes that the other cats use, so they’re all in one bathroom again – he hasn’t messed anywhere else except for his first #2 – which was next to the box, and I simply picked it up and put it in the box and it didn’t happen again.
I got a picture of the underside of Twister’s right front paw, so you can see just how deformed this foot is. The other foot is also “twisted” but not as much as this one.
Twister has no trouble sharing the bed with the dogs, although him being visually challenged doesn’t help him get out the way when my blind Riddick jumps on the bed and practically tramples him!
He is no longer locked away in the spare room except for meal times as he’s still on kitten food and I don’t want the other cats eating his or vice versa. He’s trying very hard to work out how to get onto the chest freezer, which is where the other three cat’s food is and where they eat.
He’s happily roaming the house freely, with Magic the only one who still growls at him. Greebo and Minx aren’t growling, but if he gets too close they take a swat at him as cats do.
He doesn’t pester them though, unlike a very young kitten he backs off the second one of them makes it clear he’s too close.
He’s such a snuggler, sleeping on our bed between my Glugster and I, and sleeping on top of my Glugster when he has the chance!
He’s responding nicely to “No!”, with a tap on his nose if he ignores me. I don’t want him climbing on our laptops or climbing the curtains, and the spray bottle works wonders too.
