Last 2008 Weekend with the Babies

This is our last 2008 weekend with the babies, and I'm sorry to see it come to an end so soon. But we had good times today. They were romping around last night when we went to bed but when I awoke, there she was - right by my head on her pillow.

She slept until 536am when Dave got the lucky job of checking on her in the litterbox where she finally pooped (after 2 days). This time, she had poop stuck to her butt that he helped pull out from her bottom. I'm sure she wasn't comfortable and it wasn't fun for him, so we spent today trying to figure out her food issues. They are totally on the Innova Evo now that they finished their Feline Caviar (it's not very accessible as Evo or the Wellness brands) but we think more so than the food, it's because of the trauma to her rear end, she may have lost some muscles that can help her push her poop out successfully. But her poop was still hard (Dave rated a 7 to 7 1/2 on a 1-10 scale) so that was good - no messy poop, at least.

Bag pee'd around the lunchtime, then headed off for a nap in the closet with his sister. We took this time to run errands, including finding a
bag of Feline Caviar at a dog grooming place near my office in North Seattle - we'll have it on hand so we'll see how her next poop is. We want to be careful about transitioning her too soon.

They were still asleep when we returned mid-afternoon but came out and hung out with us off and on. At times we would go and retrieve them from the closet and they would stay with us a bit. It's very calming to have them both here in the living room as we're watching tv, making dinner ... just plain ol hanging out. But in the end, it was too early in the day for them to be awake, so they are back napping until we are ready to go to bed, at which time they'll be ready to play, I'm sure.
