Theo eats kibble, jumps onto a bed, apparently enjoys live oboe music, and gets to see more than one room in his house. He’s met Willow, a calico who preceded him by a few years. Although she’s not pleased, she has not been too aggressive. Now he just needs to learn to clean the top of his nose.

Theo got to explore our house this morning, up and down the stairs, in and out of rooms. Then his new mom came and he’s off for a car ride and a new home to explore, a new adult cat to get used to, and new people to cheer him on in his new life.
Last night, he learned a new skill: jumping from my fiddle case to my lap. The case is under 4 inches tall, and I was sitting on the floor about 6 inches away, so most folks would not be impressed, but it was his first time doing that. He did it over and over, getting praised each time.
NEWS FLASH! Theo just drank some water–first time I’ve ever seen him do that.
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.
