Birthday pictures

Well, we had a little impromptu party for Czari. I got them their favorite dinner, Wellness pouches and I stopped by Petco and bought some toys for Czari to play with and share with her brothers and sisters.

Oksana decided she wanted her dinner in the kitchen.


Here's Czari with a neat little ball I found.


Oksana is playing with the other one here.

Here's Vlad wondering what to do with his mouse.


Kiska was enjoying this one.


Maks was MIA during the playing.

Here's another good one of Czari playing.


They're still playing with the balls that make noise. I have to remember to gather those up before bed or they'll drive me nuts in the middle of the night.

Thanks everyone, for her birthday wishes this afternoon!

Awwww how sweet! Czari has done an amazing amount of learning in the last few months. New home, new housemates, learning to play; with toys and other kitties....... AMAZING!

Weeeelllll, lol, she's not exactly completely playing with the others. She's still very hissy and she has her days when she's very hissy with her buddy Maks.

I'm guessing that's likely due to the fact I no longer have her on the meds, but she'd been on them long enough to learn the others mean her no harm and she's learned to live among them. So we have to deal with the hissy's.

She does however have no problem sharing our bed with the others and that's a big step forward.

But just the fact that she is at least attempting it. Even occasionally. It's a huge step forward!!

14+, yes I think just the fact she can walk past one of the others and not go nuts is huge. And she's such a cuddle bum! The only one who will lay on my lap and snooze.

Chase_Mom, thanks. I'm very happy they are all happy and healthy.

Aw, a party!

They are looking good, AG! Very happy, too.

So Czari is off the meds entirely? And look how well she's doing! That's great progress!

Hazel, yes, as of October she's been off the meds completely. I think she was on it for a total of 6 or 7 months. I'd never meant it to be a permanent solution, just a temporary assistance. I'm very happy I used it because it allowed me to ease her into life inside and among the others.

She had a nice time. After, they finished eating, they played a bit and she snuggled on my lap for some tv watching.

Yeah, Kiska is my smallest and lightest kitty. She's about 8 pounds. Maks is just 10 pounds but he's grown a bit so he's probably my second biggest, still not bigger than Vlad though. Vlad has done very well, he's steady at about 17 pounds. I remember being worried he's be fat, but it seems he was just growing to be a big boy.

Chico, I'm very happy I gave it a second try with her. I've got a bit of reflection at the end of this year I'll be writing about soon, and she's a big part of my post.

I'm spoiling my gang rotten aren't I? I saw this really cool small kitty condo yesterday at Petco that was a pretty decent price. I'm already thinking about where I might be able to put it.

Jim, he's not a dog in disguise.

It's funny, whenever I have people over the first thing they say is "That cat is huge!"

He's a good boy though, the alpha, but Little Miss Oksana doesn't care. She lets him know he can't push her around.
