Just an update

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we adopted to adult males.
The Egyptian Mau  was given the name of Eli...little guy wanted to name him Elephant...so Eli it is. lol

The Burmese we have named Jericho...in hopes that his " walls will come crashing down ".

Eli started playing and roaming around the house by the second day. But he tends to stay close to Jericho's hiding places...in case he needs help? lol

Jericho has stayed tucked away in hiding since day one. Three days ago he scared the daylights out of me.
I was laying in bed and he suddenly pounced up onto my chest! Within two seconds he started purring!!
This lasted for about 10 minutes.

He then went back into hiding.
This morning he came downstairs, started crying ( and it's a pathetic cry...wondering if he has vocal damage? ) so I went to the food dish and filled it...moving very slowly of course.
He ate, went potty, and then came into the living room. He started playing with toys!!!
I then brushed him for a bit, and put his new collar on.
The little guy woke up and came downstairs...very quietly for a change...and Jericho actually stayed in the room to play!!

So aside from Jericho's really bad dander, and Eli's throwing up every morning...everything is starting to fall into place.
YAY!!

Seems Eli can't handle hard food.

YAHOO....Jerico is finally going to accept you as his new mommy and family, it just had to be in HIS time..good for you for having the patience:)

for his dander......its because his coat is dry, cats fed dry food are in a constant state of dehydration...they both should be on canned food its so much better for their over all health. it may also be a very good idea to add some krill oil or omega3 fatty acids to the food....this will help too.

I will send you a site where a Vet talks abt nutrition and the horrors of dry food feeding....Eli's tummy can't tolerate it as she is showing by the vomiting. I urge you to try canned food, do the transition slowly so he doesn't get diarrhea...do half and half and gradually reduce the dry until allhe is eating is wet food.

keep up the good work!!!!

Thanks opus! I have them on canned food with a small bowl of dry of the side now.
Jericho has decided that eating paper is better than food though. Any ideas?
We have to make sure that every single piece of paper is put away at night...including books! He chews and swallows!!
He literally ate the Family Bible that I just inherited.
Are cats the same as dogs? I know that when our dearly departed dalmatian Daisy Mae got sick, she would eat and horde EVERYTHING!
She ate egg shells and coffee grounds when her ulcer had acted up.
She hoarded all food when she was upset.
Do you think Jericho is eating paper for one of those reasons?
It started three days ago. There was a pizza flyer on the floor ( fell out of the recycling box ) and ( have to admit it was kind of funny in an ironic way ) he started chewing on the picture of the pizza!
Is this possibly a new bad habit? A tooth ache? Ulcers? EEP!!

the family bible no less......my goodness he does have some issues doesn't he. tschock there is a condition called PICA..where cats eat unusual things...bkitty has a kitty with this condition too. I don't think theres much to be done for it except to be sure and keep all paper(in his case) well out of reach...too much paper in the bowel if it doesn't pass quickly can lead to a blockage so you'll have to be real diligent.
I'll send you an article to read.....hurry before Jericho eats it..lol
