    Took Ochi for his distemper booster today. Happy to share he gained a 1/2 pound (he is now 3.8 pounds) and is a happy boy. He did great with his first bath and we are going to slowly start transitioning his food.

    Here is our little stinker

    The vet tech noticed right away he has darkened in the 2 weeks we have had him. Also will share it is 4 mornings in a row he has a new routine...wakes up and uses his litter box and then burrows in with Myshka and suckles him lol. A ritual they both seem happy with.

      @Traci Smith we wish it could be grainfree, but due to Azura having urinary issues she is on prescriptive food. So our dry food is the prescriptive food. In a multi-cat home our vet said it is the best way to go. We can separate her when we feed her the wet canned food morning and night but no way to separate for the dry unless we lock her in a room by herself all of the time and that we would never do.

        What a sweet routine! How nice of Myshka to be a surrogate mama for Ochi!

            I just love him. He's gorgeous. So glad that he and Myshka are getting along so well. How are the girls doing with him?

            @MyJezebel they are doing fine. Jouët is always more tolerant than Azura. Yesterday caught Azura and Myshka sleeping with heads touching. She does her hissy thing at times, but he knows to stay clear.
            [​IMG] the pump on their fountain blew during the storm the other day so as you can see Jouët is fine sharing.

            [​IMG] getting some extra butt sniffs in lol.

            How are things going with your baby?

              That's great! Things are ok here. As I had worried about, the kitten craziness is very off putting to Jezebel. They share space just fine, and eat out of the same bowl, but the affection is totally on her terms. He's always jumping on her and nipping at her to play, so she doesn't trust him. She waits for him to pass out before laying down with him. If he approaches her, all bets are off.

              Might consider another baby? Or more rigorous play time might help. I know it is a fine balance and your heart is the fulcrum. Trust your gut.
