Happy Friday! This week is an update on Sogo. The little calico is settling in more and more every day and, for the most part, gets along with the other four. Aya seems to be the only one that she’s not that fond of, but Aya takes longer to warm up to being around others. Even so, they get along okay and I think they’ll be fine around each other in time.
Sogo seems to be most fond of Rio, our older calico. Rio pretty much mothered her when we first took Sogo in, so I think they formed a bond because of that.
As for us, Sogo seems to have claimed us as her humans. She’s quite an affectionate little one and I’m happy we were able to give her a home.
This week’s volume is cutting it close, but we managed to get it in before midnight! Tonight we are preparing to make our own cat food so that the cat crew can start their raw diets. They’re not handling the smell of raw chicken and not being able to eat it yet too well.
“What are you doing, human? Why does it smell good?”
“Hand over the chicken and I wont shred your face in your sleep.”
Our first Phantom Phriday of the year features one of Phantom’s greatest foes – the mandarin. Phantom hates it’s citrus-y goodness with a passion and goes to great lengths to avoid it, usually by backing far away from it and dashing off to his nearest safe spot.
“That smell offends my senses, minion.”
“I knew it was you..”
“Wait, minion. Why on earth are you moving it closer? Get that away from me!”
“..Bring that any closer to me and I’ll pee on everything you love.”
This week’s Phantom Phriday is cutting it a little close to being out of Friday, so here’s a quick post featuring Aya and Rio!
Aya is really starting to take after Rio. She copies Rio if she sees her doing something, like flopping over like this.
She’s also started to bring Rio toys that Rio loves playing with (milk rings and brightly coloured strings), which makes her look more like Rio’s servant. I’m sure Rio thinks of her as that anyway, haha.
I took some footage of the two playing around, so enjoy and happy Friday! (what’s left of it anyway..!)
Phantom Phriday Caturday edition since I forgot to push this post out of my drafts yesterday. Oops.
I may or may not have mentioned it here before, but the youngest kitten and ruler of the house, Rio, absolutely loves cat cubes. So much that we have to replace them every month because she loves them too much. Even the one we got for her a week or so ago is already looking battered.
To see a cat cube go rolling across the living room floor is a nightly occurrence.
She also has a habit of jumping into a cube before rolling it over to attack things, so I call it her armour.
