Feb. 24th, 2013 @ 08:59 am Yuzu's spring-time has arrived
Current Mood: okayokay
The cats are 8 months old now, and have been living with us for 2 months now. They've settled in a routine, and are much more trusting of us -- though perhaps not so much of any visitors.
The difference between Yuzu and Mikan are getting more and more pronounced. While Yuzu is growing up fast, Mikan is still very much a kitten. Yuzu has grown larger, and Mikan is still small. And Yuzu has been meowling in that manner that cats in heat do, while Mikan still has a while to go...
They're going to the vet to be sterilised Wednesday. I hope that won't be too traumatic for them.

Do we get kitten pictures???

I've found the same thing with my two fosters (kittens I've raised since infancy and will raise until they're adults until they become my pets. Apparently I've confused a lot of people using that term, because most people who 'foster' here taken an animal into their homes until he or she can be adopted out. So ...I'm a foster-mother?) ....Arya is going to be a year old next month, and Sparrow will be a year old at the end of April, yet Sparrow is more independent and doesn't really need mothering any longer, whereas Arya is very needy and 'nurses' on my hair. The difference with mine is that Sparrow's mother gave her to me and Arya's mother dumped her.

Sparrow behaves like an adult (she's tolerant of the younger kittens, plays gently with them, and can pass in grown-up cat society) where Arya is still very much a kitten. I hope I'm not spoiling her too much.

Good luck with the vet on Wednesday! Hope it all goes well.

Oh my goodness, they're so sweet! The last photo is priceless.

Usually being at the vet's is more traumatizing than the surgery, or that's how I remember it from when I was a vet's assistant. I'll keep my fingers crossed anyway, though :)
