A day for kitties



Rupert is doing okay, he eats, he poops, he sleeps.. he is still avoiding the 'putting on weight' of his todo list.. maybe I should write the list out for him so he sees it whenever he is awake so maybe he'll remember.

This boy is pretty clever. He seems to have a pretty good grasp of the English language because when I tell him to eat a little more he will quite often walk back to the food bowl even if he just walked away. Last night I brought down a can of the Tiki collection I got from Chewy. I really wasn't paying attention to which one I grabbed and when I opened it up I saw that it was mostly large chunks of fish. The chunks were bigger than Rupert's mouth so I put the plate down outside of the kitten room for my cats to eat. I hung around Rupert for a while and opened up another can but he didn't want that one, he apparently wanted the first can. When I opened the door up a few minutes later to go up and get something I forgot to bring down, Rupert ran right out of the door and straight to the food... he did not care one bit that Jack was investigating it. I'm sure Jack was quite surprised to find fish in the middle of the basement and was trying to figure out why it was there when this little whipper snapper showed up and started eating his prize. He hissed at Rupert and Rupert didn't care. He hissed again and when Rupert didn't respond he snapped at Rupert's ear - Jack's favorite trick when Skippy is in his space. Rupert still didn't care. Jack hissed again, a longer more menacing hiss and he was none too happy when I told him to stop and I took Rupert and the food back into the kitten room. Rupert went back to the food more than a dozen times - far more than any other food I've offered him. He only ate about a third of it, but it was something.

Because I think today needs more kitties, I think I'll share some random cat photos for you to enjoy.

  2. Well, isn't that just like a cat? You try to get Rupert to eat one food and he's after something else. That's hilarious that he wasn't the least bit put off the food by Jack. Maybe that's a future strategy (I'm kidding ... MOSTLY) ... if another cat wants it or it's not the food you're given ...
    If I didn't know better, I'd say time to stock up on the chunky fish food ... but we all know what happens at that point ;) {One of my all time favorite memes is a cat looking forlornly out the window with the caption ... "she stocked up on my favorite food, now I can't eat it anymore!"}

  5. You know, it sounds to us like Rupert is actually a tough lil guy. Maybe he had to be to make it this far. And thanks for the kitty pics. They were all great but the paws up in the air was the BEST!
