Oh, so much spring fever in our house this week! The two youngest have been playing THoE a lot lately - I can't even tell who is chasing who most of the time. Every time I think Barney is starting something and Virgil isn't into it, Virgil starts to chase Barney!
And Lola has been asking for petting at bed time. Last night I was trying to sleep so she was rubbing my hand with her face. Then she decided it would be good to wash it, so she was licking it, then using her flea picker teeth (the little teeth in front - Daisy gave them that name) to try and get them extra clean. Then when I still wasn't petting her (I did for a while to start but told her it was bed time, which is when the rubbing started) she thought that was unacceptable and so she bit me - not hard but like she was trying to get my attention (this isn't the first time but usually it is when she wants me to stop petting her). I told her no biting, but she did it again, so I told her that she could stop or leave. Nope, chomp. So I picked her up and put her on the far side of the bed and told her that she knows Barney always gets in trouble for biting (he is the king of chomping you if you are half alseep and stick your hand out from the covers - I think he thinks it is a game but then he gets way too into it) and that she should know better. She layed down in a huff and went to sleep. It was pretty funny.
The food change is starting to get a lot of push back - they like something then the next time they won't eat it. Virgil is worst, so he usually gets some Fancy Feast. Kirzon is the best - he will eat pretty much anything. Since it is spring he is shedding a LOT (he actually would have bigger hair piles then long-haired Floyd when I brush him because he is a big-time shedder), so he has had quite a few hairballs. I can't wait to do laundry because I know he sleeps in it and in the past I have found old ones he has like burried, so he didn't have to move I guess. He seems to be gaining the weight from when he lost it, but he still seems too skinny to me. But then again, I think I am always a bit paranoid about that. Oh, so I was going to say all the shedding and hairballs make me think it might be time for a bath to get out a lot of the old fur. I know he hates it but it really does help get a lot that brushing doesn't - mostly the undercoat stuff. It will be either this weekend or next so I will be sure to get pictures!
Well, that is all for now. Don't forget to go vote for Virgil over at the Fight Club at Misha's blog. We were doing pretty good for a while but are starting to drop again.
Oh, and don't forget to visit the future residents and their kitty siblings at Mac an Company still not sure who will be ours, but they are all cuties so we are ok with watiting. Part of it is we are curious about the genders of the three non-calicos - the calicos are very likely all girls, but the other three - who knows! Plus they are all so cute, how do you pick? Oh, and there is a link to subscribe to the RSS feed at the botton, so you can keep up with any new pics!!
