This little guy will be joining the menagerie in 2 weeks. He was abandoned, and is not weened yet.

(this somehow seems to be a prerequisite for cats that find their way to us)

 

Binx is a perfect cat, but has bonded on me. He allows my partner to play a few games with him, but I am the one he comes to for lap time and purr. My partner wants a cat that will do this with him.

I tried to explain that I am a spirit cat, and cats sense a like spirit and are attracted to me. We are going to work from day one with him doing the providing of food and cuddles, and see if we can get a bond formed because my partner loves cats, but they all seem to gravitate to me.

 

We shall see, but he is a cutie........

The girl who has him now, from a box left at her doorstep is doing the weening. Having done this, I am all too happy to let someone do all the work with formula, and first training. I also know she is emotionally invested, and wants to know the kittens are ok to leave to their new homes. They will all be weened in 2 weeks, amd then he can come to his new forever home.

Well, Augustus, "Gus" came home yesterday. He has been adjusting well, it is the older (1 year) cat Binx, that has the issue. Gus has no fear of the dogs, and the worst so far is an over cleaning with two tongues, that left him a bit wet headed. (not that he seemed to mind)

 

Binx however seems to have forgotten what a cat is, and acts afraid, but maybe he is just worried his throne will have to be shared now. This is to be my partners lap kitty, so I have had a hard time not getting too much contact. He's too cute not to give a hug. We have discovered last night he is an excellent climber, and gets anywhere he has determined is his objective.  My partner is disabled now, so guess who gets the doodie duty?

 

Heres some updated pics..............

I think we can safely say, Binx has decided that Gus is his new little buddy.................

Where I live, cats that are allowed outside become "have you seen me" posters on the mailbox in a matter of weeks. I have not let any cats outside for their own protection.

 

That said, the instincts are strong in cats and they quickly find indoor substitutes for outdoor behaviors. Binx has been teaching hunting techniques, like pounce, stealth and attack, and the importance of obtaining high up perching position, to better attack to dogs tails.

They quickly concluded that the other individual litter box's should be used whenever possible by the wrong cat, so as to better make sure scent marking is equally divided. Along these lines, eating the other cats food is always better than eating your own. (except that we want the kitten to get kitten food)

 

Lap training is not going as well as hoped. Even though I have made sure to never feed Gus, and try to always put him with my partner when he is in a "lap mood", for some reason, both Binx and Gus seem to feel my lap is the most desirable position in the house. I don't get it...............

My partner supplies all the play time, feeds, allows sleep time in bed at night, and just wants some lap time. I however am the one that all cats are drawn to. Its like they consider me the leader Leopard, and feel they must compete for my attention.

 

(I really don't mind)
