fun with paper balls

Well, things are going about the same here at itty bitty central. Buddy is growing like mad, and his eye is almost totally normal. I think it will eventually be 100%. He is quite the rascal, and loves to play with Buck...and anyone else that will play with him. He even gives Bentley a go. He is at 2lbs, 3 oz as of this morning, so it won't be long until he is ready to go back to the shelter for adoption. He won't be there long, with his good looks and playful personality.

Boz is about the same. He has good days and bad days, and his weight goes up and down. He has gotten bigger, so I am hopeful! He is still under 2lbs, so I need to work on that. Yesterday he had a rough morning, throwing up twice, but then in the afternoon, he ate, and he played, and he seems to be doing well! Today, he ate some this morning, and kept it down. This afternoon, he ate, vomited, then got some meds, and a shot, and a little later ate quite a lot for him, and kept it all down. I just wish I could come up with a reason for his nausea. Joy keeps saying he is just gonna live here forever. I say no...but at this point, he is never going to be up to 2 and a half pounds! Maybe they will just forget he was ever there...LOL!

Other than being small, he is in pretty good shape. I will make sure I get someone I know to adopt him as soon as he goes back. I have too much time invested in him to just not keep in touch! He is a little high maintenance, but he is so sweet, it's worth the extra time.

Here is a little video of the boys playing with the favorite toy...the paper ball. As you can see, Buddy has passed Boz in size now. That odd tone in the background is my Blackberry. :)

Great to see them playing together! And you know, Boz gives no quarter! I just know he is going to be fine, with your great care. Some kittens just take a bit longer to settle down.

Well, Boz is on a tear tonight! He is eating a ton! He vomited a little, but he is back at the bowl, eating more! I need to get him to eat as much as he can when he feels good.

You are so fortunate that his eye is doing so well! That can be scary stuff for kittens :(

Keep up the good work :)

Hi Jamie! I have been following little Boz. Sweet guy. My foster cat has intestinal issues and is on a "low residue" diet, which I had never heard of before. I guess it is for sensitive tummies. I hope Bosley gets big and strong and outgrows whatever this is!
