Figuring Things Out

Everyone is in gen pop now and it’s a circus! Zissou still sleeps in the foster closet because she isn’t really getting along with everyone too well. She’s hissing and spitting and growling. She’s won the prize for being the first foster to get squirted with the spray bottle. Steve, just now, decided she was sick of the BS and cornered Zissou in a closet. I let her do it because no one is going to teach Zissou to get over herself except one of the other cats!! Zissou does have something going for her though. She’s the snuggliest cat EVER! I thought Gigglepuss was snuggly. If I let Zissou hang out in the bedroom while I’m sleeping, she comes right up to my face and rubs up on it. She paws at my nose and tries to get as close as possible! She even tried to sleep on my face!!

Esteban is making himself at home. He goes where he pleases (and where we don’t please). He ignores anything we’ve placed for him to step on so he doesn’t have to jump. He zooms in and out of rooms like a cat should. I realized last night while he was eating that he has a different challenge there than Steve does. He looked awkward bent over his bowl. Steve usually just hunches at her bowl and eats. Esteban looked uncomfortable. I raised his bowl up maybe 8 or 9 inches and it seemed to improve the situation. I think maybe I’m feeding him out of too deep a bowl, too. Unfortunately, it’s the only spare bowl I have.

Today, Esteban got a case of the goofies and ran into the bathroom to play. He jumped into the tub and started grooming. Steve then went into the bathroom and watched Esteban in her favorite spot. Then she jumped in with him. He chirped at her and did a weird goofy twisty thing with his body that I can’t even describe! Then he jumped out and ran off!! The two of them in the bathroom and the tub was too cute, though.

I added a couple of more DVDs after this

    It’s so sweet that Zissou wants to snuggle with you…sounds like a real velcro kitty!
