Dot and Dexter aren’t quite ready for full time co-habitation. He’s still a little rough (though she gives almost as good as she gets) and she needs a lot more sleep than he does.
I do have photographic evidence that he does sleep though, courtesy of Brendan at work:
I knew I wouldn’t be able to put both Dot and Dexter in the crate at work so I had to block off my office door, kitten proof the room, and let them run free. It was a little much for Dot; she had lots of time-outs in the crate to nap. Dexter, on the other hand, loved it. He raced around and played and grabbed lots of feet and ankles. Having him at work meant I was able to give him his other two doses of eye meds (he’s on three meds, four times a day!) and he finally napped after lunch. He was a big hit, though — he purrs if you look at him!
Policing Dot and Dexter is a full time job! She’s so much smaller than he is but she won’t back down and she won’t run and hide. If he pins her down, as soon as he lets her up she leaps after him! She doesn’t cry out and it’s really hard for me to tell if she’s super stoic or he’s not biting as hard as it looks.
Finally, towards the end of the evening, they fell asleep together in the crate. Butt-to-butt, and it didn’t last, but I’ll take it! 😀
