Ginger has been so active, it’s been hard to get pictures of him!
I finally managed to catch him while napping. 🙂 He earned that nap! He spent much of the day, running around and batting at a cat toy. He clearly has adapted well to the loss of his leg, but being able to run and bat at things at the same time is really impressive!
His sister, Cabbages, and Keith were being absolutely adorable. Those two get along really well.
Ginger is not the only cat that likes to hang out on the very edge of the bed.
He’s also not the only one that has rolled and squirmed around so much near the edge of the bed, they fall right off! 😀 It’s usually Cheddar that does it. Thankfully, Ginger didn’t fall off this time. 🙂
(Oh! I just wanted to add that I got a rather exciting interruption while I was working on this post. My daughter came over to let me know a Crespo squash has emerged! It was not visible when I checked on them this morning. 🙂 )
Back to cat stuff…
While doing our city shop, we’d picked up some wood pellets to try as a litter alternative. Today I cleaned out one litter pan and put some in. The cats were very, very curious about it! It does make a lot more noise while being poured into the pan than normal cat litter does. 😀
There was one unexpected problem, though.
As the cats checked out the new, rattling round things in the litter box, they started trying to chew on it! We caught a few of them grabbing pieces and taking them out of the litter box. We discouraged that, of course. We were starting to think the cats wouldn’t use it, but I’m happy to say one of the cats finally did – and I’m not smelling a thing!
So far, so good! If this stuff works out, it’ll be much better on the budget.
