It’s official! The old Boots is back. This morning, he jumped over the gate, probably because both Vince and I were in the kitchen and he wanted to be in there with us. He went straight to where Rita was and stretched out on the rug under the table, which was close to her little pen.
Best of all . . he’s playing with his toys! This morning he walked by the quilt Vince uses to cover up when he’s sitting in his chair. Vince had tossed it on the floor last night. Boots walked over it and something caught his attention. He slapped at it with his paw and then was playing with the edge of the quilt. All of his toys were in his little cat hut that he’s never gotten in. He reached in there and pulled a few out and was slapping his jingly ball around for a while.
He hasn’t played with his toys since before he started biting so it’s so nice for him to be playing again.
I came in with Addie; Vince was just finishing up the ceiling fan in Addie’s room (I knew it!), he wanted to mess with the one in his office and he did get it to working. The one in our room was on high and it got noisy during the night so before Vince took the ladder back outside, he pulled the chain (which we can only reach with a ladder – something else to fix) and put it on medium so it doesn’t make noise. Boots was feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the activity so he went down to the sewing room. I went down there when we were finished upstairs, sat with him a while, gave him food and closed the door so he can stay in there and calm down tonight.
I’m so happy to have my sweet kitty back. I have no idea why he was biting . . could be dozens of things. I hope it doesn’t happen again.
