Once he knew it was a tick it hit home with me that where there is one... so I grabbed up the orange and white kitten (currently called Simon) and found one on his face too. arrrgh! He likes to make it hard since he hates to sit still. I gave him a good going over, and he only seemed to have one. I went back to gray kitten and found FOUR MORE!! arrrgh! and one of them moved after being pulled off. *sigh* sadder thing is that because he doesn't have short hair he very well could have a few more hiding in his gray fur..
Gray is still very far behind Simon in food consumption, but he's also far behind in weight, so it only makes sense he wouldn't eat as much. He fills up his own belly now eating on his own so I haven't had to tube feed him and I'm so glad to be done with that.. and so is he.
