A month after bringing the kittens home it’s all one big happy around here.
In this video, Remy and Sasha have been home for 3 1/2 weeks and are 11 and 12 weeks old respectively. Chance has learned to play appropriately with the kittens, and displays zero prey drive even when they’re ripping through the house like a couple of Mr. Farenheits. This was the first time I’d seen them display such a comfortable bond.
I’m pretty sure this is how Crazy Cat Ladies get started.
Chance got his first official look at Remy and Sasha eight days after they came home. We had some work to do in learning to control his enthusiastic response to these little creatures, so we took it one encounter at a time.
Chance came home in 2013. At 78 pounds, he’s a big, strong dude with a gentle soul, a heart of solid gold, and very little prey drive. He may have been exposed to cats prior to that but hasn’t interacted with one since. I secluded the kittens for the first two weeks while Chance learned the basics of Kitten Etiquette and practiced his manners.
