Watson and Sherlock welcome the new week



Thanks to some medication and quick intervention, Watson is back on track and gaining fast.  He lost quite a bit of weight during his illness, but he has put that all back on and then some. He is having a really good time wrestling with his brother.


Sherlock is also doing well. He is still dealing with confidence issues, as it takes him quite some time before he remembers that I am not that frightening. He will come up to me, but if I attempt to pick him up he runs. I don't have the feeling it is because I've had to medicate him, but he just simply doesn't remember how much he enjoys cuddling.


As soon as Watson gets up on my lap and starts purring Sherlock is quick to join in. Both of them are nursers, and they have a tendency to move around when they do it so I quite often leave the kitten room with a wet shirt.


Their poop is looking a lot better but it is still kinda smelly. I am hopeful now that the medication is over that will settle down too.


I'm running into the same issue we have had to deal with in the past year that we haven't really had issue with in the past. Someone (looks at Watson) has been peeing outside of the box. Once he started feeling better I changed all of the boxes (there are three) and put cat attract in them hoping that would help, but I put a pee pad on the couch (because that was one of his favorite places to go) and he used it. I'm quite flummoxed why this has all of a sudden become an issue in general. One box is in the litter box box, and they both go out of their way to use it. I have two other boxes against the walls (under the windows) I even bought a new couch on the off chance the futon was holding scents.

Ah well, when you are dealing with kittens learning how to deal with the world, sometimes you have to clean up a little pee.

  5. I am so glad Watson is doing so much better. I know when kittens that age get sick, things can go downhill pretty quickly. I almost lost Ayla at that age to a very bad URI. They are both so adorable!
