Pet Me Now!
My Eponine was mostly an observer. Paying attention and noticing all. She kept a watchful eye on all happenings. She also was mostly timid and scared with all. If the doorbell ding donged, she ran to hide. As a matter of fact, running to hide was her response in most situations.
This little monster is all about interaction. She is a talker! And loves to rub her head against everything. I speculate that is how she hurt her eye. Oh, just realized I have not mentioned that she has an eye issue. A pupil that won't constrict. The vet believes she still has vision. She's just sensitive to light, he says, because the pupil is dilated. The other eye is just fine.
I find it very loving when she puts her head down in preparation for a sweet little head bump. I view it like someone that leans into you when you're giving them a side-arm hug. It's super sweet. She's really a sweetheart.
Daphne is staying with us this week. With the exception of an occasional burst of jealousy from Daphne when the little sweetheart nears me, the two are getting along splendidly. Daph doesn't know what to think of the situation, though, when the little monster gives her a head bump and tries to get Daphne to pet her. Daphne is more content just invading her privacy.
Thanks for all the food advice. We had only one throw-up incident Tuesday and no outside-of-the-box incidents. The evidence in the box even appeared mediocrely better. I started limiting portions, but also picked up some baby food this evening. She is getting daily brushings and is discovering many places to snooze. I even think she is much less bony. She is full of purrs and love.
