Leo's doing better! There have been no 'accidents' and he's not licking excessively. And he's started to play again! I mean, leaping and flying and jumping around the room after Da Bird! I was so relieved that I didn't even try to get the camera out, I just kept playing with him!

I don't know where Star was during the play time, but if she'd been there I know he wouldn't have been flying so freely like that! I do think she knows he's feeling better though, because she's back to being a grumbly hissy face at him. And me if I attempt to pet her when she's being all stalky and stare-ey at him.

The food... same deal. He's not crazy about it. Star nibbles the one occasionally. But they are both quite pleased with all the extra canned stuff. Leo still gets his meds in a little bit of food before getting the rest of the can. We have to hurry to give him the rest because if he finishes and you're not there with the rest, he will actually, seriously, try to shove Star away from hers!

Seriously! I don't know why she hasn't killed him for that yet.. But she will move over and let him!! Where's the hissy face then? Where's the paw of doom? It's the weirdest thing. We herd him back to his bowl but she will take forever to get back to hers. Which can be an issue if we gave her fishy food. He still wants fishy stuff, poor guy.

Two more weeks til he gets tested again, but the way he's acting, I think, and hope, he's going to be ok!

The cat tree is still endlessly fascinating, for both of them. They love it! Leo especially.

Preparing to do the Tree Dangle!
First, ya gotta stretch, that's important!

Once yer in position, don't forget to check the location of any potential attackers..

Then check for bunnies, squirrels and birds!

That's today's lesson; do the dangle! Just not too far.. you might fall off..
heh, not that I've ever done that..

Star takes a more dignified approach.
I always wait til daddy's home, then he can run off the barbarian
by coming in the door thus freeing up the tree for me.

Now, give daddy love eyes so he'll scritch behind the ears
and maybe force mommy to give an early snack.

Glad Leo is feeling better. You can't expect him to go off fish,um, cold turkey. Gotta try that dangle. I only dangle one paw at a time.

Cat trees are so much fun! I am sure glad that Leo is doing better, keep it up Leo!

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

So glad Leo is feeling better. And bet Star is too. She probably really loves him, she is just really, really good at hiding it!

Sparkle said...

I'm so glad to hear that Leo is feeling so much better! Actually none of us ever get fish flavored cat food (although we don't have to be too careful with the ingredient list like Leo), so Star should consider herself lucky.

You two are two of my favorites. Xxxooo xxxooo <3

Oui Oui said...

Ugh, you show see feeding at our house! Julie on the stairs to the basement, Carl in the kitchen, Oui Oui in the dining room and Mica Moo upstairs in a bedroom. They all have all picked their favorite place to eat. Oui Oui is very slow and takes lots of breaks, so an eye needs to be kept on her food.

Me is so happy that Leo is feeling better! Now that dangle is superb!

Gigi said...

We'z sooper happy to hear Leo is feeling frisky again! Star, it must be nice to have two Humans, specially if you can get one to goose the other one into giving you the good snacks!!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

This is such happy news! At the rate things are going, we're sure Leo will get a super duper report during his follow up.

I was glad to read about Leo's improvements. Playing is a very good sign. It's funny about Star letting him get at her food, but Tungsten, the queen of my household, allows Josie to do the same - except when she's very hungry - even though Tungsten commands in all other respects. I've read that dominant cats will sometimes give way in respect to food, as long as they know they can get some later. It may have something to do with taking care of the pride or pack or pod, or whatever cats roam about in, when they roam. In any case, it's good news about Leo. Continued improvement to him!
