Happy to scoop

Yesterday I said Pirate had finally used the litter tray and Lynn replied that I couldn't have predicted being happy to scoop the poop. Well, yesterday it was only pee... the real happiness came this morning. Pirate produced a respectable poo, the first since we brought him home on Wednesday!

Pirouette has been a bit weird, though. She won't be in the same room with him. Yesterday she approached him a few times, but only to sniff him and run away as fast as she can.

Pirate has been sleeping in the bathroom at night, but he prefers to stay in the kitchen during the day and next to us in the evening. Pirouette stays wherever he isn't! We're not experts in cat psychology, so any input from more seasoned cat owners is very welcome!

Here he is, chilling out in the kitchen (he's lying on the shaved leg):

Dramatic weather

View sent us this time-lapse video. It's quite impressive! Thank you, View.

Video info from Youtube:

The menacing, magnificent storm clouds of Wyoming come to swirling life in this time-lapse, "Stormscapes," by photographer Nicolaus Wegner. He braved lightning and the erratic fury of supercell storms to capture these images in the summer of 2013.

Pirate update

Pirate is home, wearing the cone of shame, but he looks quite comfortable. Olivier let us pay in instalments, so we're not destitute! All is well, thankfully.

Here are some lovely cats to make us smile...
