Ash, my new kitten, is now nearly fifteen weeks old, so I thought it was time for an update.
I love this little kitten so much, he’s been a pain at times, but he’s also very loving and sweet.
He’s still sleeping with me as I can’t trust him with our other cat Sabrina overnight yet. He has now found a spot by window on the floor where he likes to sleep best. I guess he can feel a breeze from the window which keeps him cool. He’s so fast though, as soon as the Little Man opens the bedroom door in the morning Ash is out of there in a shot. We let him go as we’ll be joining him soon.
When we first had him he was so tiny he had difficulty going up and down the stairs, now he races up and down them.
He is a good boy and always uses the cat litter tray. He hasn’t wrecked anything yet, but he does like climbing up the curtains and having a good chew on any shoes or slippers left around. Thankfully, he scratches on his post and hasn’t had a go at our new settees.
He loves it if there is a moth, fly or even spider in the house, he will keep on trying until he’s caught them. He’s going to be a good hunter when he grows up.
He has an amazing colouring, stripes on his body and spots on his belly, it’s like a cross between a cheetah and a tiger, so we call him a chiger! He’s got such big ears he could be a bat.
Ash and Sabrina
Our other cat Sabrina is still not happy, but you can’t blame her. Whenever she comes in the house Ash can’t wait to play with her. He follows her around, hides and pounces on her, runs at her then runs away quickly, he’s a proper tease. But poor Sabrina is not amused and just bats him away. I guess it’s a good job we’ve had such good weather as Sabrina is spending most of her day outside under the trampoline.
We keep their food separate so that Sabrina doesn’t have to share with him. They are on different food at the moment anyway. I’ve caught Sabrina having a sneaky snack on his baby food though.
I think things will get better once Ash is older and a little calmer.
At least Sabrina gets the house to herself once Ash has come to bed with me.
