Sorry for the lack of Dora updates and pictures recently. I went away for a few days to France with my sister (Dora’s Cornish Auntie) – we went “Sur le pont, d’Avignon” and nearly got blown off it in a howling gale into the River Rhone, but that’s another story… Meanwhile, Dora was left in charge of John and was a Very Bad Kitten, according to his story, running riot and putting the bitey on him at regular intervals. She has calmed down a bit now!
When I got back from France, I thought she had definitely grown bigger! She has had her second trip to the v-e-t for kitten injections, and had put on 200g between the first visit and the second visit. She now weighs almost 3 pounds. She seems a bit puzzled that it’s not as easy to squeeze through her tissue-box tunnel as it used to be a few weeks ago. So we bought her a bigger tunnel to play with. She seems to like it!
Dora also enjoyed having her Cornish Auntie staying with us. She is usually not allowed in the spare room so she was very excited to have someone actually sleeping in it. She enjoyed visiting Cornish Auntie first thing in the morning and whizzing around the bedroom bouncing off the furniture. But she also enjoyed snuggling on her Cornish Auntie’s lap.
We have had to do some more kitten-proofing in the living-room, as Dora is now able to jump and climb higher. She has found out that she can now jump from the arm of a chair on to the stereo (forbidden!), jump from there to walk along the mantelpiece and knock things off (also forbidden!), then from there walk along a bookshelf and jump on top of the TV. It’s only a matter of time before she finds out how to get on to the shelf where John’s model aeroplanes live…
More kitten training is needed… She is a very happy kitten and enjoys playing with her toys and practising her new climbing skills (and eating), although she does have bouts of being Crazed Psycho Kitten. Check out those mad staring eyes… 🙂
