He knocked the vinegar and stuff down aftr a fight with Pua about who gets to eat her food. He then rolled in the vinegar and rubbed it in with his claws.

These little pauses are the closest he gets to snuggling. Though today he actually cuddled. When in the cat house he curled up around m hand to sleep, aw. Though he didn't care when I left either. I went to get juice to lure him out with as I didn't want to be in the studio room all day.

Playing with Mandua. He runs into the studio room, it's combo for painting, lab sorta, Jake's stuff, and pantry so messy. The carpet in there is just stained not really dirty.


So now seems like the appropriate time to warn you all that Mandua wont be staying. He's here on breeder loan and recently asked if I wanted to buy him I declined. There were a number of factors involved in my decision, the most obvious being that Pua still wont forgive him for not being nice when he first got here even though he's nice now that he's settled in. If we try again the new fellow would be sequestered to another room till we are sure he's settled in. Which also leads to another factor.

For those that skipped the odds n ends post last time(most of you) he is a sperm donor and we are trying AI with Pua. Last month was the first try and we are impatiently waiting for Pua not to start her monthly spotting. If she has a baby and we can find a baby male when her's is a few months old then she may adopt the baby boy as her own too. Since she did sort of adopt Stewie and she'd not be of the mind to attack babies when she has one. We could also try the vick's trick of rubbing some on her nose so she can't tell which baby isn't hers. But that's all if we get lucky and she gets pregnant by Mandua. If she has a baby girl all the better as then we could keep it and have the one male for both. She normally spots monthly(28-30 days) but the average for females is said to be 42-45 days so we have some waiting to do to be sure she skipped spotting then a little more to be able to check via ultrasound at the vet. Tonight will be 30 days since last time she started.
