Jack and Gaz - 6/24

Penelope and I spent a couple hours hanging out with the kitties today, to give them some time to get more comfortable with us.  Gaz came out and wandered around, mostly looking out the windows.  Jack was being his usual crazy self - one second he's asking for attention, and the next he's hissing and running away. I finally decided to just pick him up and hold him for a few minutes, hoping he would calm down, but he was already too worked up.  I think I'll try that again, but next time with treats.  :) 

I moved the cat food in the hopes that the ants wouldn't find it, and sure enough, they hadn't (yet). In fact, we only found two ants in the apartment today.  Anyway, the kitties are still doing well. Here's hoping they get used to us soon.

Jack and Gaz - 6/22

Jack was much mellower today. The girls fed him snackies while I fought silly ants trying to steal the cat food. Gaz still mostly hid out of sight. Jack followed Alexandra around mewing like a little kitten, and Alexandra reported that he was saying "I miss Jessica!" - heh.  :)

Jack and Gaz - 6/20

 6/20 - We stopped by in the evening again and Jack was in a grumpy mood. He acted really sweet out in the living room, but really territorial and feisty in the bedroom. Again, he seemed terrified of the kids.  I told the girls to just stay in the living room and that seemed to work out better.  The kitties had just about emptied their feeder, so I filled it up again. They are eating and pooping, just like good little kitties.  :) 

Jack and Gaz - 6/19

6/19 - The girls and I stopped by in the evening and brought some catnip. We rubbed the catnip on some kitty toys and Jack hid under the couch and played with them. Jack was acting very high strung - I think he is pretty terrified of the kids.We stayed for about an hour and watched an episode of Doctor Who, but Gaz hid under the bed, and Jack hid under the couch the whole time. Silly kitties!

Jack and Gaz - 6/18

6/18 - Gaz is being super playful and friendly today. She came right up to say hi when I came in. I gave her a tiny piece of cheese from my sandwich, and she proceeded to lick it around the floor until it was in little crumbs. Jack just looked at me like "what the hell is this?" and then tried to take a bite of my sandwich. Apparently one little piece of cheese was not enough!
Jack is obnoxious but cute. He won't let me pet him. Instead, he wants me to put my hand down where he can rub against it; if I move my hand he freaks out.
I tossed a couple of toys for Jack and he half-heartedly jogged after them, then looked at me as if to say "make it move."
Gaz is now galloping around the apartment. Somehow she manages to sound like a cat five times her size. That's a lot of noise for a little kitty!
Next time on Jack and Gaz: I think I'll bring some fresh kitty toys.
