our neighbor babysits the little girl from the family who adopted our kitten. the girls got an update on how our little guy is doing in his new home. so far so good! he still loves his favorite blanket we sent and sneaks into the little girl's bed just like i hoped he would! they did change his name which made kelley a bit sad, but i explained that he would get use to the name quickly. i bet he's enjoying being the only kitty.
funny, he was the most mellow of the kittens. but now that he's gone, our crew doesn't seem as hard to handle.
and a couple new discoveries that i've made that are cat *must haves*!
an affordable self cleaning litter box. it's not electric-which we've had in the past (and didn't have good luck with, not too mention they are way too expensive), this one works by turning it on it's side. the "scoops" end up in a handy drawer that you pull out and empty. then tilt back. easy peasy! we are in the process of switching all of our boxes to this type. you can check it out *here*.
and a toy, the best one i've found...the kittens love it and the big guys seem to think it's pretty cool too! it's a round track with a ball to bat around and has a scratching pad in the middle (those are replaceable). check it out *here*.
now i know these can be hard to find and i don't recommend paying an arm and a leg for them, but the cats really love zhu zhu hamsters! the good news is that i'm starting to see them at various places for reasonable prices!
