Excuse the pink hue which is from my phone case somehow!!
Yes they are but at the same time demonic! They are EVERYWHERE!!!! Up the curtains, down the back of the sofa, under the sofa, under my feet, eating the bottoms of my trousers, up the stairs, running for the front door every time it opens trying to escape and running like it's life or death when I put their food down!
So they are now weaned on to solid food which means POO!!!!! When they are little and only nursing from mum they don't wee or poo! What happens is the mother cat licks their bottoms to make them do a wee which she then consumes herself (EWWW!!!!!!) it's fascinating to watch (which I promise I don't do on a regular basis), because the kitten lays perfectly still with a glazed look on it's face while the process is happening!!
They have all been sold and are going to two lovely families (Jasper and Casper are going together) and as much as I truely love them and they make my heart melt when I look at them, I just can't WAIT for them to go! To not have a litter tray indoors anymore and to be able to shut Poppy out so that she can't constantly scavenge for food!!!
Marley on the other hand is doing very well, he is using his leg much better and I am hoping that in a couple of weeks he will be able to go to the meadows for a run! It's boring not being able to walk him in a field he doesn't get up to much mischief when he is confined to short lead walks and indoors all the time!
I started a new job a couple of weeks ago which has required me to employ a dog walker 3 days a week and she seems to be bonding well with Marley (not that I ever see her), he seems happy enough with his new routine and I am glad that I don't have to worry about him while I work all day!
So once we are in the meadows again I am sure their will be plenty of tales to tell but apart from a couple of ninja cats doing moves on a garden fence outside the school the other day nothing much has happened for Marley bless him! Fingers crossed for normal mania to resume shortly!!!
The REAL Marley and Me xx
