Au is well. He had 4ths at dinner last night, and played with T-man for an hour. The thing is, Au plays almost exclusively with T-man and our little Target is bored.
It's been this way for 7 months now, so we've decided to make some changes. We're adopting a new cat.
As Au is FIV positive, this took some planning. We needed a cat who is very healthy. So we looked for one that's been inoculated, dewormed, and treated for fleas.
Also, Au hates tiny kittens but he doesn't mind young cats. As a big adult cat may be territorial asnd bully our shy Target, we looked for a compromise and settled on a young cat aged around 4 months.
As Target needs a playmate, we wanted a feisty kitten.
T-man said he preferred a boy as they tend to be tougher than girl cats and he thinks Target needs some shoring up in his confidence department. T-man also wanted a Malaysian kinky tailed cat if possible.
Alicia from Pet Epicure came up with 2 cats. T-man got the choice and he settled on Jake.
Just to be sure, we paid for an FIV test and when he was proved negative, we paid for the FIV shot. This will be added to Jake's adoption fee.
We're picking Jake up in an hour. We fully expect Target to be horribly jealous at first, so watch this space for drama. I'll provide daily updates and no doubt Au will Tweet about it.
