Mostly Mim's Pee....
I feel kind of bad about that last Tweet saying I was the poster child for YOU DON'T WANT ONE OF THESE CATS! So I thought I ought to take some pictures and talk about how wonderful they are for a bit.
Because they really are. As long as you understand what you are getting.
Mim is having Pee Issues. Only it seems, on ME now, tho. I don't know what's up. I am the expert. She's not sick, been to the vet. We go for leash walks, she has a cat wheel we play on, LOTS of toys. It started pre-Magic being out, tho it does happen MORE now. Daily in fact.
She seems ok with him. She likes her food. She gets as much as she wants to eat. She has access to SEVEN litter boxes in different parts of her territory. All cleaned daily, with unscented litter. I hide little balls of tin foil all over and buy her Mousies. I give her attention.
I have Feliway diffusers and spray. Anti-icky-poo to clean up the pee. She's peeing on me every night. Beyond me. There is a calming collar one can get, which works like the Feliway, mimicking the pheromones of a Happy Contented Kitty. May try it. She has two Screamed Porches now, and a fountain. Six Cat Trees. And curtains to climb.
And I really love her.
I love them all, even if five Bengals is too many. The Royals have come so far, I haven't done as many pics with them, mostly as they are harder to shoot. King Lear the Huge comes up in the bed with me for what are nearly cuddles now, and both of them LOVE when I take baths. Queen Mab is so shy, and so sweet, but braver than Lear.
I do kind of wish they had their OWN person, and if the right person came along, I would let them go. Be hard, but if they had their ONE who loved them like I do, it would be worth it.
They have so much love to give.
Bengals are really smart. They are highly active. They are beyond funny. And they communicate at almost an eerie level. I think Mim is trying to tell me something. I don't get it yet tho. I know she wants out, and am building an outdoor cat area for her.
They have hearts that will bond with YOU, and only you.
There is nothing like having one trust you, especially one that's never trusted before.
You've never known that love, maybe.
And so ends another episode of Living With Leopards.
Love and Mim's Pee,
