I’ve had an orange Arthur already so I’m adding the II to distinguish this new, sweet boy. Weirdly, they’re very similar in temperament — gentle and laid back. When crazy Granton attacks, Arthur II does nothing except let out the occasional squeal. I can’t wait to see what happens when the kittens are at “that stage” if he’s still around.
So far, he’s stayed mostly in sleep and eat mode. The bed is his favourite place!
But just the last day or so he’s become a little more comfortable and outgoing. He’s VERY food motivated, so that helps. And he has quickly figured out that I am the source of all food; the acceptable kibbles, the delicious wet food, and the awesome treats. He already knows the sound of treats being shaken and will come from the bedroom for them. He’s also very chatty when it comes to food. 😉
He doesn’t seek out cuddles but he is very quick to purr when I pet him. And he’s fine with being picked up; like Norm!, he sinks into me when I pick him up.
There have been a couple of half-hearted attempts at playing with the feathers-on-a-stick. Nothing else, so far, has grabbed his attention. He seems a little weak in his back end and I wonder if it’s from 2.5 months in a cage. I’m going to ask when he goes back to the vet for his dental work.
