Noodle Progress

In all of our excitement about Noodle's daily adventures, I forgot to mention that she has been with us for over 4 months now, this being the fifth month in a week or so. ALOT has happened in these 4 months. Of course we expect to have progress, but it's been good progress, for the most part.

Primarily, her pee and poop - despite some diarrhea, baths, and now daily butt wipes - seem to pretty consistent. She is going every day, and although at times has pee clumps that are slightly smaller than we hope, for the most, her pee clumps are a good size for her 5 pound body. She pees about 2-3 times a day. Her poop has been consistenly hard, or at least hard enough to drop off. I won't say too much more since I don't want to jinx us.

She has gotten alot more used to the noises around the house. She was always cool with house noises like the dishwasher and washer/dryer. But she doesn't seem afraid now of when we come and go. Before, each time we come home, she would run and scurry away, at the sounds of the garage door. Of course, she still does now when you abruptly open the door, but if you come in without rushing, she'll greet you near the door.

And she used to hang out under the couch or behind the toilet but now this is HER home. Oh, she lets her brother live here, too. Speaking of her brother, they get along beautifully! Even though they have their alone-time time, they play together alot. There are rarely any hisses although sometimes if you watch closely, you can see if one of them is getting annoyed.

They now eat together, too. Since she is on the UR canned food diet (in addition to her feline caviar) to prevent crystals, they both eat at the same time. It's cute. I always felt bad having Bag eat in the bathroom while she waited and there was nothing for her.

It is VERY darling, to see her make this progress. We love that the two of them get along so well; we cannot imagine them apart. Bag is very much our little baby boy and she our little baby girl. And they very much rule the house, letting us serve them!
