COT: Good News All Round

It's all good news here.  Au continues to pig out and thrive now that he is taking his RetroMAD1.  He's also becoming furry bossy.

Au has always exerted some control over us but lately he's become the Complete Dictator.

Rather than disturb our Senior Pig In Fur by commanding the comfy chair, my better half sits on an uncomfortable stool whenever Au is feeling militant.



Target has a new spot on the garden bench, where he can keep a half eye on what's going on outside.

Mind you, his ears sweep backwards and forwards - just in case there's a bit of ham in the kitchen that Au doesn't want.

When that happens, our little fur brain swoops in and gobbles it down in a gulp.

I think his face is getting fatter but Target doesn't seem to care.  As you can see, he's adopting a regal Mandarin style pose.

If you look closely, you can see the beginning of a double chin.

Boris is getting over his FAD and his butt is once more furry.  It's still short fur, but we think we've seen the last of the baldy butt.


Here he is, posing on our garden wall.  As you can see, his whiskers are luxurious and his white mask and chest are spotless.  Boris is definitely feeling good.

He's still not a great pal of Target's which worries me.  But more about that next time.  I've got screaming deadlines so got to get to work to earn the cat biscuits and the ham and the treats.

Lucy the Cat said...

I love these pictures! The top one says it all with Au comfortable and human is not! Target cracks me up. Yes, he really is learning to be stern...looking at least. Boris is so cute and hopefully, he and Target will learn to be pals over time. So glad Au is still eating!

Neri said...

efurryone's looking good! Hope Boris warms his way into Target's heart in good time!

So good to hear all the good news. Au must be feeling better if he is getting bossy:) Tell Target we always manage to find a good spot too so we don't miss a thing. Luckily if one of us gets ham, we usually all get some, although TD and Ciara think they might miss out some when they are outside and Phantom is inside - he has a way of getting extra treats.

Keep up with all the good progress.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Good to know Au is doing well. Eating and Dictating is good. Every old fart kitty, and even the young ones, should take lessons from Au. Tell dem Beans what's what and take no prisoners.

Yes! Everyone is looking good. Here's to a quick building of friendship between the two 'enemies'.

I'm gone .....

Karen Jo said...

I am really glad that you continue to thrive and pig out, Au. I think you have definitely turned the corner. Target is looking good and Boris looks great.
