So our mum has been an even worse assistant than usual lately. But I do have some good news. Suey, Lishy and I have decided that the little noisemaker can stay. Our mum says we have adjusted better than she dared to hope for. Suey has been the biggest surprise. She is not a ladycat who likes noise and disruption. It annoys her quite a lot, and usually sends her running in the opposite direction to hide and be grumpy. But when the baby is being noisy and disruptive, she runs towards her! She even calls out as she comes running, as if to ask if there is anything she can do. She also stands up against mum and dad's legs to get a better look at the baby and check for herself that everything is ok. We're all very proud of her.
Lishy has discovered that when the baby is feeding, he has a captive audience. So he climbs up into mum's lap, snuggles in next to the baby and purrs away. He also likes to swish his tail around when the baby is sitting in her bouncer, and she smiles at him.
As for me, I love everybody. So I adjusted pretty quickly. You would not believe how interesting some of these new smells are!
