Everybody's Home - Tuesday Unscheduled Cat Blogging

Esther is home, minus a part or two. Lily hasn't completely figured out why Esther no longer wants her to nurse:

To say that Esther is irritated with Lily would be an understatement. Once in a while, Esther licks Lily on the head as in the old days. More often, she bats her in the face in response to Lily's pestering the fool out of her. But hey, all kitties are home and healthy now; that's all we could ask for.

  1. They are indeed, jams! And for once, they were too sleepy to dash away quickly enough from the flashing little box...

  2. It's nice to see that Esther is a traditionalist who believes in the instructional use of the "bat" in the weaning process, rather than the claws extended slamming of the head into the ground that some moms use.

  3. Bryan, Esther is turning out to be a very gentle, very patient cat. That characteristic has its limits, and Lily sometimes seems determined to test them. But Esther, like my own parents, does not engage in violence more than necessary... i.e., she (as did my Dad) gives her offspring an occasional swat when necessary, but not a damaging one. Like me, Lily gets the message, but forgets it fairly soon. :-)

  4. Yay! I had a tabby pooty named Lily once, too!

  5. Truffle, it's really good to see you again. I hope your tabby pooty was as sweet and, um, lively as Lily is... for all my occasional complaints, I wouldn't trade that kitten for anything. And... GROWING... you wouldn't believe how fast she's growing!

  6. BTW, Truffle, it's good to see you blogging again. I have a bit of reading to do to catch up on what you've written.
