Ooh Baby Baby
So we have a new family member.
His name is Levi. Yes, he is adorable but what a handful! Levi is 7 weeks old but eats well, uses the litter box, and bathes(good signs) but I think he still misses mamma a little bit, and has attached that missing to me! See those big eyes, they make you melt and pick him up every time he looks up at you and cries! He has two tiny little gray spots on top of his head like an extra set of eyes and a very pink nose. He scratches at my legs to get picked up and won't fall asleep anywhere except on my chest or curled into my neck where he licks with that rough little tongue that tickles to death. Spoiled already. I have to close my bedroom door at night to keep him off the bed (hubby is allergic to the long hair). If the door isn't closed he is relentless at climbing on the bed to get to me.
How is Loulou managing you ask? Well the previously only baby in the house had her nose out of joint for sure. She hissed and growled at him AND ME for the first day. She refused to use the litter box for a day and used my son's bed instead, and she wouldn't sleep with me which she usually does! Now that it is day 4 she has started using the litter box again, stopped hissing at me and lets me pick her up again, AND she is actually trying to play with the kitten, that is as long as she doesn't think I'm watching. When I'm there she pretends to slink about like a cougar and be all ticked off! It is actually really funny. Levi doesn't know what to think of her! One minute she's a bitch and the next minute she is fun and games. I look forward to next week when she loves him and keeps him busy more. I'll let you know how it goes. We are spending the week at the cottage with the two of them so the next kitty update will be after Labor Day Weekend.
