I set the ramp to the bottom step, and a towel over the next one, and showed Theo he could get up there. Now he does it on his own. He also has started trying to pull up on the door barricade–he can’t get over yet, but he’s working on it. He’s 8 weeks old today, and less than 4 ounces shy of the 2 pound fixing goal.
I was gone at work yesterday–the first time Theo has been without me in a long time. My husband fed him and sat with him. Theo was shy at first, but his social needs won out. Today he got a lot of time on my lap.
Theo enjoys a game of Chase Around The Pillar. He’s has just a few more life skills to learn: self-starting on eating, drinking water, and eating kibble for example. He did finally notice the laser dot, but has no interest in batting or chasing it. He cleans himself, with moderate success. 6.5 weeks old, 1 pound and 6 ounces, almost weaned: he should graduate in a couple weeks.
Theo is exceeding expectations. He is also, not coincidentally, finally enjoying the “Chicken Soup For The Kitten Soul” brand food, with a bit of yoghurt added. He still prefers to eat with my fingers, but that’s understandable. After the coziness of bottle feeding, a plate on the floor needs some social added. I am cutting back on the bottle feeding and trying to make the water bowl interesting. And no more 2 a.m. business.
