Cory the Great Hunter

One of Cory’s favourite games, a variation of “bedmouse” — that’s my hand inside that little towel, being his “prey” to “kill”. Can you hear the purring? Just a warning if you try this with your cat: Cory is very gentle, and I’m his mom, and the rules have always been that wrestling is okay as long as there’s a towel or blanket between his pointy ends and my skin. I’ll see if I can edit this down to a shorter, cleaner version just as soon as my editing software decides to cooperate. Original post blogged on b2evolution.

Cory snoozing with Daddy

Seanya has a full-length vibro-massage thingie that he puts on the couch and lays on when his back is particularly sore.  Cory absolutely adores it, and loves to snuggle up close.  Maybe the vibration makes him feel like his daddy is purring to him? 03 Jan 2010 Original post blogged on b2evolution.

SCP Pics Overload!

Tomorrow morning, the Silver Cuddle Puddle go to the Humane Society for their second vaccinations and deworming, and then go up for adoption. I believe they’re going to the Kingston PetSmart. I’m sending them with 4 copies of a CD of pictures and videos, which will also have a link to this blog. If their new families are willing to let the babycats’ fans know how they’re doing, I’d be delighted, but that’s up to them and what they’re comfortable with. We’re going to miss them very much, they’re all so sweet and loving, although it will be a relief…

SCP Video Overload!

Just caught up on uploading videos… so many, in fact, that instead of trying to embed all of them, I’m just going to give you the links to them! Sorry if that’s inconvenient for anyone… Still working on pics, I have a pile more to sort through and choose the best to resize and post.

SCP Update & Pics

The Silver Cuddle Puddle are now all in the ballpark of 1.5 pounds of incredible energy, confidence, curiosity, and cuddliness. I’m very proud of them for figuring out how to eat wet food and then moving on to dry food, and for figuring out the litterbox — all with no mom to teach them, and before we let them start spending much time with the other cats! Aurora was the first at the wet food, first to use the litter box, first to start playing with toys… she’s generally the one who works things out and then the rest imitate…

Catching up – Cory, June 10

I don’t know HOW I missed putting the videos of Cory’s first tub-hockey game AND the videos from his last trip to the Humane Society to get all legal here!!! Cory’s tub-hockey game: At the Humane Society: First one is cut off abruptly because of a discussion in the background that it wouldn’t have been appropriate to record and post: Cory’s exam, deworming, vaccinations, and microchipping (thanks, Martha!!!) Afterwards, ready to go home: Original post blogged on b2evolution.

The SCP Running Wild!

The Silver Cuddle Puddle – Ryu, Kate, Zephyr, and Aurora – are on the loose, in our messy and cluttered apartment! Cory’s having the time of his life, and the big kitties are fleeing in terror! For the record, the SCP have been here for just about two weeks now, and have shown no sign of illness. They’re pretty much guaranteed to have worms, and granted they could be carrying something that isn’t showing — but it’s a balance because they need to learn more about socialization than they’re going to get locked in the back bedroom alone except for…
