It’s come to my attention that I might like to balance yesterday’s post with what’s true today. So let me intersperse text and pictures in a quick one here, and then get back to the boys (and work).
Item: Fangie’s nasal discharge continues to improve steadily. Now the gouts of stuff when he sneezes have gone; he just sneezes only occasionally and there’s a little drippiness, that’s all. His breathing is chuffy when he’s excited, but I believe that’s normal for him, given his health history.
Item: The bitey really does appear to be related to the need for him to blow off steam. After all, he’s had a long journey no matter how cool he was with it, he’s doubtless missing Chrystal and his old home and playmates, he’s confined to a small room even if it is stocked with every convenience I could think of to put in there, and I’m dividing my time between him and Bugs and work – and this blog, so I need to make this post a short one – and the more time I can spend in play with him, the less he bites.
Item: He really, really wants to explore the territory. This morning he broke out of Base Camp as I was going in – so I put Bugs in Base Camp and let Fangie run around for half an hour. No spraying, no yowling, no destruction from either party – just Fangie scampering around the new territory in his cheerful Fangie fashion (and eating the food I had down for Bugs, which Bugs had only pecked-at).
So, friends, all is well in the household. As well as can be expected.
