Thursday Night Update
A million thanks to all of you for your continual vigilence, fortunately though this is one case where you needn't worry. While Luna is still underweight after being sick for the better part of 3 weeks, and a homeless kitten before that, her nose just kinda does it's own thing. It varies from that icy white to a cute little pink and back again, and I've yet to find any real pattern.
Here's a picture of the fuzzball taking a nap this afternoon with a noticeably pink sniffer...
Slooty actually joined her for the nap, and in a very entertaining pose as well...
The photo showing both of them is too cute to let Rosiemac downsize
, so I'm just going to include a direct link for you to click if you'd like...Slooty & Luna napping on the bed, only 140kb.
While Slooty still occasionally plays a little too rough with Luna, usually all it takes is a whine from Luna and she'll let up. They really've got a great relationship though, Slooty has taken to grooming her little sister. It's adorable to walk into the bedroom and find Lil Lu
buried head first into Big Sloo's
chest getting the back of her head carefully licked by her big sis!
They both had very dirty ears when we got them, and despite mommy's persistence with the q-tips they seem to always become dirty again. I finally had a forehead-slapping moment and realized that it was likely ear mites. Some reading on the internet confirmed that suspicion - these two are "coffee ground" factories. They aren't scratching though, which is good. I've added an anti-mite drop called Revolution to the shopping list for Dad, in the meantime we'll just continue carefully cleaning them!
Goodnight everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving if you're from North America!
EDIT - forgot to add that I did the gums test, no problems!
