The Kittens & Pooh’s First Weekend …

We’ve had Pooh here with us since Wednesday evening and she seems to have settled in quite well … shes approximately 12 years old (exact age not known as she was a rescue cat) … in general she is quite a shy cat and takes a while to warm up to people, she prefers men and took to Perry straight away … the fact that she stayed with us before has been beneficial and she hasn’t been as scared or hiding as much as she was last time …

Just relaxing and enjoying the window seat …

Pooh isn’t the biggest fan of the boys … but its understandable … shes spent a good proportion of her life not having good experiences with other cats … which is why we had the trial weekend to see how they’d get along … but the kittens dont try to attack her and she doesnt try to attack them either … nothing more than some harmless hissing to warn the boys to keep back …

As such we’ve set up the spare room for her as a space where she can be on her own … and relax … were sure she will eventually warm up to the boys and be relaxed around them too … but for know were having her spend time with them for a few hours a day while were around to keep an eye on things …

By having her own space it helps to let her relax and not stress as much … slowly we will let her and the boys interact with each other for longer periods of time until we dont have to separate them at all … but with a cat like Pooh things like this take time … its only been a couple days so far … and when she stayed last time by the end of the 4 days she was happy to be in the same room as the boys … so were confident it wont take too long …

She does like it under the bed though …

Other than that she seems to have warmed up to us two quite quickly … and is a very affectionate cat when she wants to be … if you sit on the bed she’ll come and lay herself down next to your leg and roll on to her side for you to stroke her … and she’s happy to clamber onto Perry’s lap while hes at his desk so he can stroke her too …

Peek-a-boo … I see you ...

The boys are also doing well … Derek is incredibly cute with is little snaggletooth and occasional sneezing … Hugo is ever so demanding when it comes to food … and Derek is getting louder and more consistant with meowing around dinner times …

Hugo is not impressed with Perry’s idea of a good time … he is incredibly disapproving of the situation …

Derek just loves his shoes … the smellier the better …

While I was making my Panang Curry I was also grilling some chicken for the kittens and Pooh … and the boys just would not leave me alone … constantly winding between my legs while the chicken was in the oven and Hugo was practically climbing the kitchen units to get to it once I got it out …

Hugo has such an expresive face … they both do … but today Hugo was exceptionally so … he was particularly unimpressed that he had to wait for his chicken …

Then he gave up being ‘unimpressed’ and tried the ‘stand-up-patting-at-my-leg-with-pleading-eyes’ approach …

These are my boys … all three of them … I love this picture … 

Having given the boys a few pieces I thought I’d try Pooh with some of the still-warm-from-the-oven chicken and see if she liked it … and she loved the stuff … munched her way through the chicken like nobodies business … I’ve been warned by Stef that she can be abit of a fussy eater when it comes to non dry cat food stuff … so I was glad to see she was enjoying the chicken so much …

Giving it a sniff …

Something interesting going on outside proves a slight distraction …

Nom … Nom … Nom … 

Nom … Nomming continues …

They have both been very active recently … they usually dont sleep as much during the weekends on the days were around the house … too much happening and much play times to be had to bother with such a thing as sleeping …

Hugo trying to get to the rest of the chicken …

Derek jumping for the chicken …

And Derek goes for the swipe … 

And Hugo goes in for the grab …

But even they do crash out at certain times of the day … if not for as long as they usually would they do nap … but as soon as the fridge door opens they are both up like a shot and next to the fridge in no time in anticipation of being given some chicken …

Finally getting some naps in …

Loving his tongue in this one …

This is the face that greets me on the days when I get home early and I’ve woken him up … is disapprovings and wanting to know why he’s been woken …

Hugo keeps waking me up in the morning trying to nibble my toes off … and Derek is usually trying to chew on my watch or my engagement ring … he’s like a magpie and goes for the shiney stuff … but its so hard to be angry at the two of them when they are so cute … although saying that Perry has started to refer to Hugo as the ‘Little Monster’ … mostly because he keeps running off with Perry’s earphones or chews through his phone charger … both of which I say is his own fault for leaving them somewhere that the kittens can get to them …

Was having abit of fun with doing a photo collage of Hugo while he was nappings earlier …

I think I’ve bored you all enough with the kitten talk … there are plenty of photos of the boys and Pooh here from this weekend … Enjoy … and let me know what you think in the comments below …

Hope to post some more soon … In the mean time have a great weekend …

Till next time …
