BAXTER, Entry for May 7, 2007
Baxter was as great as ever today. He greeted me at the door and presented himself on the kitchen island as I approached for his scratchies and hugs. He wriggled around in delight for a while and headed for the food counter to check out his wet food. He didn't eat much of his wet food from yesterday or the day before, although each day as well as today when I opened the container and filled the bowl he couldn't wait to try it out. I think that he just appreciates the offer. I would worry but he eats way enough of his dry food especially from his bowl in the bathroom and he acts very healthy and energetic. We did the chores in the bathroom together again. He especially likes to lie on the little piles of litter to prevent them from blowing away that I sweep together on the floor. He is such a big help. He also enjoys hugs and scratchies on the bathroom counter. As usual we retired to the living room for some TV and play with the cat dancer. He uses this opportunity to hone his stalking and jumping abilities and will continue this activity until I am ready to stop. Soon it was time to go and I said good bye and told him that his Mom was coming home and that I would come and visit again sometime.
