Last time you saw Flynn here on the blog it was National Cat Day, he was much smaller and fuzzier so I figured I’d show off how mature he’s become! He’s also become a little less of a terror, I repeat…little less. He’s gotten used to our schedule a bit more though he still meows at the bedroom door most mornings but it’s become a backup alarm so it’s fine. I know you’re thinking, you don’t let your cats sleep with you? And no, I don’t. I tried many years ago with Tater and he just kept me up with moving or licking since I’m a very light sleeper (every night I use a noise machine and/or earplugs!) so I decided it would be better to sleep separately. I put out all their toys and give them treats before bed so they don’t really mind just want to snuggle before I get up to get myself showered and ready for work days. Flynn has also become quite the model, much like Tater, check him out!
Speaking of Tater, Flynn loves his older brother and mimics everything he does including begging for wet food whenever I approach the cupboard that holds the magically moist ‘kitty crack’ food. Do your cats revert to feral crazies when you bring out the wet food? It’s hilarious how nuts they become; I know they enjoy it much more than dry food so I treat them to it a couple times a week.
Along with calming down a bit Flynn has also wanted more affection. At first he wasn’t that into being pet or held for long periods of time but he wanted attention, which threw me off. Tater is very affectionate and wants to be in your lap or on you at all times, so to get a new addition that only sort of wants attention sometimes it was much different. I love the little dude and am especially into him hanging out while I take a bath on the edge of the tub. We even got him rubber ducks! We’ve all made adjustments and he’s become a sweet member of our little family!
Happy Friday from Flynn, Tater, Dustin and Flashy!
