well it's understandable. this is short. Thing One (Mr. B) and Thing Two (BooToo) can't stand being without one another now. I was setting out 2 dishes, trying to dodge BooToo because if I lay the dish down he practically lays in the dish to vacuum up the food. Mr.Boo is so patient with this little guy. I usually can give Boo2 a dish and then present MrB a sesparate dish and Boo's so smart he got it right away that once BooToo is off eating, even if fed first, that I do it to shut him up so Boo can eat in peace. After a wild morning of racing around, they settled down for a nap before 12. This morning they only slept a short time and Boo woke up, came up looking for his side kick. BooToo was very tired and had fallen asleep while I held him, I try to hold him 1x a day because he's still very young. He loves being held, its my luck, both Cat and Mr. B like being close by but not being held..Mr. B tolerates it if he wants to get onto to shelf or in a closet, but not for cuddling. Boo found BooToo in his sleep place, under a shelf in the kitchen when we put a rug and its warm and quiet. He nudged him awake and once BooToo stumbled out to see what was up, Boo rolled him on his back and began washing him all over. He takes care of this kitten like a mother would. It's really amazing. Boo is 3x bigger and 6 months older but something in this kitten just touched him. They both use Mr. Boo's litter box now, even with two being available. They went back for a second nap, Mr. Boo went under my blanket where he sleeps during the day and Boo2 was on the rug, he can't jump up yet onto the bed. I dont put him up there because its seems too high for him to jump down. When Boo realized he was up on the bed and Boo2 was on the floor right under him sleeping alone, he slide down under the cover down to the floor where Boo2 is sleeping and curled up next to him. This is their first time sleeping together. You know I haven't told my kids about BooToo; when I mentioned possibly bringing in a mate for Mr. Boo my son let slip something about money...it might cost alot more for food etc. A week earlier he asked me if my pension was invested correctly...etc. The young man shows alot of interest in my finances and is the only one who actually asks for money and he's the oldest. I realized while I dont have issues helping any of them, including him, that its better to shut up about what I have and what I do. The few concerns I mentioned to them in the last year about SSDI or forced early retirement for medical reasons, was totally ignored. I would love to share the happiness of these animals with them, I'm afriad it would be taken the wrong way---they still resent my former marriage, as if that money spent could have gone for things they needed. As hard as things were for me and sister I dont know that we ever looked at the little bit my mother had as something owed to us.
