boz love

The Boz man LOVES Bently. Bentley loves Boz too. You can see the love. Who says cats and dogs can't get along?

OK, to be totally honest, Bentley dosent have the same relationship with ALL the cats here. All the cats here don't LOVE Bentley. Ripley for instance would love to rip his face off. (Bentley thinks it's great fun to play with her, Ripley...not so much). Bishop is undecided. Buck plays back, which is what they did when Bentley first arrived here, at 9 weeks old. Buck was 8 months old, and they were instant friends.

They all manage to live under the same roof with relative peace. It's always better when Bentley gets a play date or a trip to the dog park fairly regularly. If not, he likes to "play" with the cats. They are not big fans.

enjoying good times

Boz continues to grab the heart of all that meet him. Being the tiny guy that he is, people are drawn to him. He got to meet a couple of his facebook fans in person last week, and I think they were smitten.

Boz snoozes on a pillow.

We still have some vomiting, but he is growing! I know he will never be a normal sized cat, which is OK. He gets along just fine. He can leap onto tall stools in a single bound! We were able to remove his "box" from in front of the counter, because he can jump onto the stool without it. He has gotten quite daring with his leaping skills. He jumps from the top of the kitty condo, down to the sofa! Even the big cats don't do that. I haven't weighed him recently, but I am pretty sure he is over 3lbs now.

Ripley sleeps in her favorite warm spot.

Bosley is about to leap off the top of the kitty condo.

Bosley tries to figure out how he got himself in this predicament!

Finally Buck leave so Boz can get down.

He still loves to hang out on the deck. He loves the sun, and is content to be where we are. If we go in, he stands at the door and waits to be let in. I wish Bishop was like that. If he gets out, he makes a bee line to the fence! He doesn't go far, and waits for us to come get him, but we are very careful to keep an eye on him when we go in and out.

snip snip

I got in trouble today for not posting in so long. Shame on me! Have been busy lately, and just run out of time, and pictures!

Big step for Bosley on Thursday. He is getting neutered! Yep. Dr. Brown will be doing the deed. Boz is still not quite to 3 lbs., but he is close. I honestly wasn't sure we would ever see this day, but here he is, all grown up. (OK, maybe not ALL grown up, but 6 months old is amazing!)

We hosted Swaziland night here this past Friday, and Boz was feeling good, and having a lot of fun interacting with our friends, and with Lucy, my friend's little dog. I think Lucy was a little afraid of Boz, but Boz didn't seem the least bit afraid of Lucy.

Today, there was vomit in my office floor, and he seems a bit off today. I will give him a shot before dinner, and before breakfast tomorrow, and see how it goes. I don't think I want to put him under if he is nauseous.

He is still as sweet as he can be, and makes it hard to do work. He is laying across my arm right now. At least he isn't laying on the keyboard. He is known for that too!

I have to laugh. Anyone that knows Buck knows what a chow hound he is. He will worry you no end until he gets his food. He is also known to terrorize the other cats randomly by chasing and tormenting them. Well, when Boz is hungry, and I open a can of Buck's food, Bosley will dive in. When Buck comes over to eat, Bosley growls at him! The funnies thing is, Buck will back off. He will sneak very slowly back to the bowl to try to eat. Boz usually stops with the growling, but it is too funny to see little >3 lb Boz chase Mr. 15 lb Buck away.

Buck waits his turn after Boz growled at him.
