New Cat Update
Eliza took the new cat (Vincent) into the vet again today. The report was good. In the six days since his last visit, Vincent gained 1.3 pounds, taking him from 5.3 to 6.6 pounds. The vet was impressed. I was impressed! We really know how to bulk up here! His front paw is also doing much better; he's almost done with his antibiotics.
As for the cat-cat relationship, it isn't going so well. Vincent is a very sweet cat, and would accept Fergi with open arms, but she isn't willing to share the house. However, he doesn't take her crap when she hisses and growls at him, and he chases her down. They have a little scuffle, then she gets to higher ground (because he can't jump very high). One of them needs to establish dominance, and fast, because we are tired of playing the referees.
