Lucy and The Pumpkin: An Update

Now that Lucy’s eye infection has resolved, The Pumpkin caught another cold.  Instead of a trip to the vet, again, I’m giving them both Lysine, an amino acid that ostensibly helps treat these.  She’s got a loose nose and she’s sneezing a lot, mostly right into my face.  (I have that going for me…)  I guess shelter kitties have their challenges, but I wouldn’t trade these babies for the world.  I’ve gotten more enjoyment as well as proficiency at painting with kittens on my shoulder or in my lap.  I can leave them now, and it appears they mostly sleep when I’m gone.

I let them explore the house the other day, and Lucy made a Bee-line for the fireplace.  She was covered with soot when I finally extricated her, and she got her first bath.  The Pumpkin just watched.  They play tag team with their antics, somehow knowing that I can’t handle two cats in the fireplace at one time.

They’ve learned the word “no” and have stopped biting.  And Lucy’s new trick is standing on top of the scratching post, all four feet in one small spot, looking every bit like a hood ornament.  I’ll be posting that picture soon.

    They most certainly must be feeling like royalty in your care. What a wonderful true story!

    Pumpkin has a look like she’s queen of the household already. Cute picture!
