Photo Friday: Just a Big Kitten

Our boys are just really big kittens at times. And of course, a kitten needs his naps.

(And yes, this looks similar to other nap pictures. But it is a a nice fresh nap from our content feline.)

Whitey, bladder ...

Whitey left a puddle again, this time in the tub. He most assuredly is not comfortable with his bladder these days.

Photo Friday: ... Must Come Down

When we last saw Billy, he was high on a shelf. That has no place to take a proper nap, so he decided to get down (no fire department needed).

Photo Friday: What Goes Up ...

Billy decided Katherine's desk gave him a launching pad to investigate her upper bookshelf. We were amazed he dared jump up to such a small space -- a reminder that house cats only hint to us what they can really do.

Photo Friday: A Pair of Solo Hunters

The boys surveyed their prey from the front windows in the upstairs library recently.


For cost or noise reasons, most of the windows in the library don't open. However, next week those front windows will be replaced. The new opening windows should provide better ventilation, and, of course, more entertainment for the boys.

Whitey's Bladder Redux

Since early this week, Whitey has acting like has he has trouble using the litter box again. This has included useless trips, and even urinating in the sink in his bathroom. This indicates litter box anxiety, but in our ever fastidious feline did at pick the easiest place in the house to clean up after.

So it was off to the new vet, and after they couldn't get a sample they sent home the required tools (a small litter box and fake kitty litter) for us to collect one.

Now the results are back, and at least he doesn't have any new infection. He may have irritation which the new food will help control, and which we could give him anti-depressions to act as anti-Litter box anxiety meds. However, we want to hold off on the latter as long as possible.

Update a week later; he seems to be settling down without drugs.
