Nothing major to espouse today. Just wanted to show you some shots of Tedy bear.
He has adjusted to being a solo cat since his sister Lucy died several months ago. It took a while but now he loves getting all of the attention when we are around.
And he is learning to entertain himself more often when we are not. I know this by the scattered toys left about the house. He takes full advantage of our open door at night to turn into a fuzzy and persistent alarm clock in the morning.
His health is doing well and he takes his medicine every day like he should. Except when we try out a new pill pocket flavor - he is set in his tastes.
We are ordering a brand new couch so I am very nervous about that. He is a scratcher - his one bad quality. What do I do about this people? Sticky tape? Squirt bottle? New scratching post? I don't know how to deter him when we aren't at home, short of shutting him away in the basement. Don't get me wrong, the basement is a favorite hangout for him - and Andy. But I would feel really bad. Speak to me kitty owners. What has worked for you? Declawing is not an option. I don't personally believe in it, and he does still go outside.
