It's been such a long time since I've posted anything! To be honest, at this time of year there's not much going on - apart from trying to keep warm and dry.
Harry and Bertie have cotinued to grow and develop. They regularly bring their prey in and generally alert us to this by growling at each other. Once growling s detected, one of us leaps out of bed and shuts the bedroom door. It's bad enough that we let them sleep with us, but I can't fancy sharing with dead mice.
They are really lovely cats (IMHO) - very elegant, slim and they have incredibly long tails. Felix is a wee cobby cat. The three of them get on fine - they eat together and Felix plays with them at bit. And he grooms them too. It's not reciprocated, so he still demands his brush in the morning. As I type, he's sitting on the router on the desk - it's warming his bum.
We wormed them for the first time a couple of weeks ago. The vet had used a spot-on, but I had worm tablets left. Imight change to a spot-on but waste not, want not. With some trepidation, we approached with the wrapping towel, but decided to try without it first. Both took the pills without any hassle - a la Cassius. Even Felix followed their example - which was great as he usually stresses about pills. Nice to see you can teach an old cat new tricks!
