I tried to post last night and today but lost them. Charlie has been eating better, even had some chicken broth today which he asked for cold. Didn't want it heated. He was perkier yesterday midday even going to Music's door to supervise her for just a moment (door was closed) and chasing after a bathrobe tie, just a little. Then last night not as good, a little more under the weather. Just a little more lethargic and not as perky.
But today he has enuf energy that he was very naughty
. He wanted to go outside, which I am thrilled he thinks he is up to it, but i do not think so yet. He is still fairly sneezy and temp affects him quite a bit. And still thin though not emaciated. So--ever very very smart, he waited till I opened a cupboard which I didn't know had a HOLE in it at the back which leads under the house, a place he had clearly never been judging by his exploration of it. And it is cold and dark and there are spiders and it is too small for me to crawl in plus i have a shoulder problem today and couldn't crawl even if i fit, and mommy about had a heart attack. But as he correctly ascertained and i discovered, you can then from there exit to the outside except that all the openings have screens. And naturally i was waiting by the big screen calling him and he did not come to me, which normailly he does come when i call, correctly guessing that i would catch him. so i gave my most pitiful meows and he did come and i did take him back inside and he really complained. you see, i promised him once he started eating and feeling better he could sit in the sun and look at the birds all summer (he is not allowed out at night but he is an offroad rescue so that is our deal, daytime ok, and he is always very good about coming in at night esp cause i explain there are scary coyotes). So I feel a little bad, he may think i am breaking my promise but it's just too soon. And in the process, some bug bit me on my back as i was leaning in, but fortunately i think his fur protected him and he was ok. We have hobo spiders here, poisonous but more of a risk to people cause animals fur protects them. But still it was cold and damp under there!! No where he should be right now!! Still I am glad he has the energy to be naughty.
I can't see a picie of saba, is there one in the last post? I'm bummed if there is and i can't see it. She batted at him a few times when behind the safety of a door.
she started it! spunky! she does have a way of looking at you very long and seriously without blinking or saying anything that i am not sure i have ever seen another kitty do. and it's so cute when she does it up at you from her little tiny height.
thanks again very much to all of you for all your good wishes. they have helped.
