Three tiny eight-week-old exotic shorthair kittens discovered the wonder of a child’s blue plastic slide shaped like an elephant. One by one, the kittens slid down the elephant’s trunk, causing an adorable pileup at the bottom.

Mini Got Fixed

Since Mini has been coming inside regularly now, we decided we’d better get him fixed. He’d been fighting with and chasing other ferals off his territory, and he’s at the age (around 6 mos.) where he might want to start marking inside the house. We waited a week or so, just to gain his trust, and took him in on Tuesday morning.

Getting him into the carrier was surprisingly easy, and he barely made a peep in the car. He is really the chillest cat I’ve ever met.

Here he is shortly after surgery, still coming out of anesthesia and stumbling around like a little drunken sailor:

The following day (Wednesday) we kept him inside all day. This was VERY difficult for him. By Thursday morning, after around 60 hours of confinement, it was clear we’d have to let him out or he’d destroy the house. He came back in around dusk, though, just like always. Thank goodness he still trusts us.

Stretching with Rich:

Head scritchies.

He's great about letting you stick fingers between his toes.

We need to fashion some cat toys, because he is still just a kitten, and he needs ways to safely blow off steam when he’s not outside. I saved a bit of Christmas curling ribbon for this purpose, and he loves mauling on a scrap of fleece. The carpet remnants are good for biting, too.

Great Dane vs. Teeny Chihuahua

Guess who wins?

Duke, a 105 lb Great Dane, backed up onto the couch, scared by a visiting 3.5 lb Chihuahua on first meeting. He also made a German Shepherd pretty nervous. Apparently the Dane wasn’t quite as scared as the time he met a baby chicken and pooped all over himself.
