Phew! Things are really going well here at kitten central (fingers crossed/knock on wood). Boris and Vladimir started off with some small hissing – all started by Boris because his size is so much smaller. Finally, last night Boris and Vladimir started interacting without hissing. Then late last night and this morning, they started playing with each other. It’s been so adorable – Vladimir will even groom Boris! (Kind of weird, but I’ll take it) Boris had his ‘new kitten wellness check up’ aka ‘give us any extra money you have for tests you don’t need but feel bad saying no about getting’. $125 for his 5 minute exam and the rest of the appointment was spent by giddy vet-techs handing him off to each other and kissing him and talking to him in high pitched voices. Alas, to be an adorable kitten.
Don’t worry we haven’t forgotten about Leopold – I’ve been talking to him extra nice and took him on a long solo walk this evening around Palmer Square (a cute small park near our house). Boris is still undecided about Leopold – Boris will run up to him excited, smell him, look at him and then stand there an hiss as menacingly as a 2lb kitten can until Leopold just walks away. It’s kind of cute, but I’m sure Leopold is wondering why I put him through this again. Sorry bubbie.
So without further ado – here are the new photos.
