(Because every LJ account has to have posts about the owner's cats. It's in the bylaws somewhere.)
For those of you who've asked, Tripp the Three Legged Wonder Kitten has settled in fine and is doing well. Once he figured out the trick of navigating on three legs (part answer: hold your tail off to the missing-leg side for balance when running), he was zooming around the house with the other two cats, no problem. For their part, Dexter and Leo seem perfectly pleased to have him about; I frequently see them snuggling together, and the only time I hear growling seems to be when wrestling matches get out of hand. He's grown somewhat, from about half the size of our other two to about three-quarters; I have a feeling he'll end up being our three-quarter cat in more than one way. :) His coat has also gotten remarkably thick and silky, and he's starting to get a little fat.
And, like all proper not-quite-adult cats, loves to cause mischief. Just now he hopped up onto a dining-room chair, saw that I was watching him, and very deliberately jumped up onto the table (which he knows he's not supposed to do). I chastised him and chased him off the table, so he waited until I was settled back down on the couch with my back to the table...and promptly hopped right back up. Now he's settled down on one of the chairs, looking at me with that "See? See how good I'm being?" expression.
It's a good thing he's so adorable.
"See? Totally not jumping on the table. Yet."
You have no idea how difficult it is to get a good picture of a wriggly kitten.
