Buddy & Spike, Entry for July 31, 2008
Buddy and Spike continue to be in good spirits. Today was grooming day - well at least for Buddy.. and I think it will become part of our daily routine, because he is really shedding alot. Too much fur was coming off on my hands everytime I pet him, so I had to take the bull-by-the-horns today and deal with that. I worked on him in the "barber chair" by the windows in the back and he really enjoyed it for about 15 minutes until he decided he'd had enough of a good thing and hopped down to go get a snack. Then I walked over to Spike who'd being eyeing us from the island and let her sniff the comb, then attempted to very gently comb her head. This was countered by a definite NO YOU DON'T Grrrr. So that was the end of that idea:) She really needs a comb out esp. in the back, so it's too bad. She'll just have to wait for mom or dad. Let's see, what else? Oh yes, our good luck streak was broken today in the vomiting department. Found a bit in the upstairs bath and hallway. Not much, and was relatively easy to clean with a little water and laundry detergent. Spike has taken to following me when I head upstairs to check the rooms and refresh the litter. I'll head up and then suddenly hear the scramble of little kitty feet tearing up after me. Then, she'll sit in the hallway happilly grooming herself. What a funny cat! She obviously wants companionship but just doesn't seem to grasp some of those essential social skills:) Take care and check back soon!
