Re: OT - how are everyone's new babies doing?

I was thrilled about a major breakthrough here. Slugger (the youngest) was given his name because he was such a tough guy, but after neutering and adapting to the household he turned into a toal weenie. If Jack (my oldest) looked at him sideways he'd run. He cowers from everything.

Once in a blue moon, Jack will get a burr up his butt and for no apparent reason attack Braveheart who is somewhat feeble - one eye, can't walk well. As I wallked into the kitchen I saw BH trying to escape Jack's attack, when from the family room leapt Slugger onto Jack's back with claws and teeth in gear! They did the twirly thing you see in comics while BH ran for cover until I yelled for them to stop. I don't really know if Slugger was protecting BH or if he just wanted a piece of the action, but I was so glad to finally see him show a little backbone again, living up to his name.

This is an otherwise very peaceful house.

Subject: [CHAT] OT - how are everyone's new babies doing?

And Zem, how is Percy adapting to his new 3 legged state? My kitten Little
Bit hasn't learned "no hooks" yet.  I'll be glad when she does.  I was
cleaning the litter box the other day and was bent over scooping.  She
decided she wanted my attention at that exact second so she jumped up and
planted both sets of front claws in my backside. She took off running when I yelped, so MAYBE we won't do that again. Believe or not, I managed to not
drop the scoop.  Lord knows how.  I will be very happy when she grows up.
The kitten "thing" is very cute and amusing and all, but there's a lot to be
said for a cat that is more settled and calm.  I'm just not used to that
level of activity.  Thought you cat people would get a kick out of that
anecdote however.
