Update On Au

Au is eating breakfast at 4AM, dinner in the evening and some little meals around those two times, but he's not chomping as much as I was hoping for.  He is cheerful, his eyes are bright, and his fur is shiny, but I was sort of hoping he'd be fattening up by now.

I'm told I'm too optimistic; that he will take some weeks to recover from this near-death experience. And he is eating!

Au is also getting his old evil sense of humour back again.  Yesterday he discovered Boris in "his" arm chair downstairs.  Boris always behaves as the Humble Supplicant in front of Au.  When Au walks past, Boris lies down.

So when Au jumped on the chair, Boris was already lying down.  I could see by Boris' face that he was worried and uncertain what to do next.  So I picked him up, and put him on the rug.  As Senior Cat, Au gets priority.

Au sat down with a, "Get owt of my chair, you fat borus!" look and when he was sure Boris was staying put on the rug, jumped off the chair and went to snooze on the sofa. Boris was dying to get back to the chair, but decided to make do with the rug.  And Au knew it.

As I said, Au has an evil sense of humour.

Hurrah! Au triumphs again.

After KonaKitty got so thin, it took a good month of serious chowing down to get a little padding on her hips and spine. Would Au eat a hi-cal gel supplement? Or kitten food? He looks pretty good in the photo, and if he's devilish he MUST be feeling good.

Hmmm, sounds like Au is feeling a bit better too:) Poor Boris.

It takes time to gain weight, but we understand = we have been waiting for years to fatten up Phantom:(

Paws crossed for him to keep improving.

Au my friend, you keep eating and ruling over the house!

Rumblemum says she knows what the human is going thru, there were so many times that she felt the same way for Inigo. I think her optimism helped Inigo for a long time, so please don't give up the optimism.

I am so glad that Au seems to be doing better and poor Boris though! Hoping that Au begins to put on some weight for you!

The Creek Cats said...

So glad to hear Au is feeling better. Hope he gains some weight very soon!!!!

Mumsy, Chancy and Co. said...

It sounds like Au is feeling better. It may take some time for him to start showing some weight gain, he is coming back from a very difficult time. Poor Boris needs his own chair. We are glad to see the update. Hugs and nose kisses

Lucy the Cat said...

It's so great to hear that Au is continuing to eat and clearly is feeling better. Poor Boris!

Brian said...

I am so happy that Au is eating on a regular basis. Lots of pours to yo Au!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Au wow wow.....keep on eating, mate! But maybe he wants to maintain a more svelte look? har har har *evil laughs*

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Pretty good report, we'd say! Remember, it takes a lot of calories and more, to build back muscle. Right now, no weight loss is good, and it may take days or weeks to build back muscle weight. It may not come, but as long as Au's other signs are good...we will say success!

Mr Puddy said...

I knew it ! ...See you are a legend, Au
I can see you look so much better !
Well done with your food....and fat Borris..MOL
Keep it up ! Buddy

Admiral Hestorb said...

Au, my mommy loves all three of you but she admits to special fondness for you. Please eat more, dear Au .

The Island Cats said...

We're glad Au is eating...but it may take some time to fatten him up!

AFSocksScylla said...

Glad to hear Au is doing better. That is funny about Au chasing Boris out of his chair.

We do not know if there is a free version of Coral Paint Shop ours came with our Visioneer scanner.

BeadedTail said...

We hope Au gains some weight but it is good that he's eating and still being the head kitty in the house! Poor Boris though.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Au I am glad you are up to feeling feisty!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Slow and steady wins the race -

Or something like that!

Lorenza said...

Haaa!
Poor Boris! But sure he is smart enough to know what to do... or not...
I am very happy to know Au is eating very well. I am sure he will gain weight soon!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Catsparella said...

I'm so happy to hear that Au is continuing to improve, and will purr that he keeps eating more and starts to put on some weight! Such a lovely boy!

Cat said...

We are very happy that Au is getting recovering and returning to his old self! I guess you will have to be patient about the weight gain it will happen slowly but steadily :-)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We're glad Au is eating and if he's ruling the roost there, he must be feeling better.

~Covert_Operations'78~ said...

If he's up to playing a game of Kitty Hierarchy, he must be feeling better! Keeping the purrs going,
E.L. and the Rowdies.

Simba said...

Good for the evil sense of humor!

The Chair Speaks said...

Glad that Au is feeling so much better.

Huffle Mawson said...

I wish Teddy would be like Boris and just know that I am the boss.

Barbara said...

Glad that Au is up to his old tricks, but fancy bullying Boris - poor kitty! As Au is eating regularly it shows he must be feeling better, hope he continues the same way.

Mango said...

That's right. It is Au's chair even when he is not on it. Don't want to get Boris cooties.

Slobbers,
Mango

Cory said...

Au, if your sense of humor is returning, the fat can't be too far behind.

Continued purrs,

Cory and family

Old Kitty said...

Gorgeous Au!!!! You are one alpha mankitty!! Poor sweet Boris - nevermind - the rug is as comfy too!! Yay for Au for eating!!!! Me and Charlie continue to send him healing hugs and purrs!! Take care

Ginger said...

I definitely think him getting his evil sense of humor back and putting Boris in his place is a very encouraging development. His face is so cute in that picture I just want to kiss those cheeks!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Perhaps his tummy shrank a little when he was sick and he needs to eat smaller meals until it stretches again. If he is getting bossy again and making the rules he must be feeling somewhat better.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

rozni said...

I'm surprised how docile Boris is with Au. I don't think their relationship has been described before.

Hope Au gets tubby again!

Kitikata-san said...

He is willingly eating on his own, and jumping up on a chair! All very good! He has the will to get what he wants. Fantastic! I think Au is on the mend for sure.

The Cat From Hell said...

Sense of humor is most important! He must be feeling better to be evil!

Eric and Flynn said...

It is good that Au is eating, and with his devilish streak, he must be feeling a lot better. We are purring for his continued recovery.

AL said...

Oh cool that is so good news to me! Purrrrrr.

Cezar and Léia said...

Oh poor Boris!
And great news about Au!
I'm sending purrs and love to you all!
Luna- WE LOVE LUNA

ABBY said...

We are so happy that Au is eating and eating...and we know it will take some time to get a bit of that extra floofiness back but we believe it will happen.

Life Ramblings said...

glad to hear that Au is showing some signs of recovery. hope he'll continue to eat and feel better soon.

Boo-Bah said...

I haven't been on for a week so I am really happy to come here and see that Au is doing well. It may take quite awhile for him to put weight on. He is eating and that is good. The return of the little tricks he plays on the other cats, must be a sign that he is feeling better.
We send our purrs and love to all and special prayers for Au.

Cat said...

It is always a good sign when our loved ones (be they human or furry) get their ornriness back...Mom always knows that we are ok for sure when I have to try to oust Tiny from her roost or when Tiny has to swat at me just for being in her way. We're glad that Au is doin' his thing!! As for the food, I guess it does just take time and perhaps his body is healing at the speed that it needs to heal, because it wouldn't be too good if things go too quickly. We are all impatient in life, but many things work best when we are patient...even if it is really hard!!! Purrs to you all, Lautrec, Tiny and DawgWood
