Making Friends

The Smitten-Kitten girls are really starting to get along with the Oscars- even Sally! She still doesn't like it when the Oscars try to wrassle with her, but otherwise is doing well. She will happily share food and water bowls with them, and was even caught giving Meryl's ears a tentative clean!

The personalities of the Oscars are becoming clear. Heath adores attention, and wants to spend every moment snuggling. Brad is very playful. He will often rear up on his back legs waving his front paws around if he sees any potential toy- and this includes hands, moving blankets and ties on clothing. Mickey is more reserved, and likes to sit back and watch. Sean is the smallest of the five, and is the only shorthair in the litter. Mum wonders if he has a seperate father to the other four, and if he was possibly conceived them. He reminds mum of Seamus- he runs around like the little engine that could, wanting to be involved in anything and everything. Meryl is a sweetheart. She is very gentle, and sweet with the Smitten-Kittens. It's going to be great to get to know them better.
On another note, mum thinks Polly is well out of the woods, after her illness. Her energy levels continue to increase, she has the appetite of a horse, and her body conditioning is becoming really good. Thankyou very much for the purrs for Polly. We really think they helped a lot.
Mum also wants to thank you for your purrs for her. She was feeling a little overwhelmed the other day. Thankyou for helping her to keep things in perspective, and remember all the good things that there are in this world:)

Tell your mum to be kind to herself, especially when she is missing your dad. My mum likes to stop and by herself some flowers, or makes something special for dinner.

You kittens are all so cute! I bet it is lots of fun at your house.
