I know this is the 2nd cat post in ten days and I promise to stop very soon, but 'ah, ain't he cute?'

So far he has explored all the dark corners, behind the sofa, in the sofa, under the bed, under the table, behind the telly. Today he has discovered pegging it out the bedroom and launching himself at the corner of the sofa and hanging off it with a surprised expression on his face.

Meanwhile our bonding moments involve me pulling him out from all these dark corners (and having the scars to prove it) to put his eye drops in and his other medicine for that other thing he's got. I've discovered that waggling his toys and trying to tempt him out does not work, whereas a firm teacher voice telling him to come out NOW works very well. Dinner time is a bit of a chore too, I have to pick him up and stick him in front of his bowl and use that voice to tell him to EAT.

He seems to sleep an awful lot, just not when I'm asleep...

So sweet!

I love watching them explore with that curious look on their little faces. But it is so annoying having to get them out of those dark corners. The worst part is trying to get them to use the litter tray.

But it's all worth it, isn't it?

Well Marie, he's fine with the litter tray, I just accidentally shut the bathroom door and he came and asked me to open it. Eating is getting better. And Jefferson he wasn't so cute at 2.30 this morning after hours of hyperactive dashing over me and sparring with my arm. I may have used the words 'little fucker/shit' in reference to him as I tried to catch him to throw him out the room!

He looks v. cute. Keep us updated. Our cat was so fat when we inherited her that we had to cut her rations right down and she farted like a trooper! She's a grand old lady now and on two small square meals a day!

Methinks you life is set to change forever! I also have a sneaky suspicion that while the firm teacher voice works for now, Kitty will soon wise up and start taking ultimate control...
But he is very cute!
