I received another delightful email from one of our pet parents last week that I just had to share with you.
Was looking at your blog and saw all the cute new kittens. I assume they are reserved, but I’m wondering about Zhaklin’s upcoming litter? All spoken for yet? My boisterous boy, Sasha, is crying out for a playmate. Thought it would be cute to have a full brother or sister for him, but of course any half sibling would do as well! The only stipulation is that the baby fits the description given in the lyrics of the Tigger Song:
A wonderful thing is a Tigger;
A Tigger’s a wonderful thing.
Their tops are made out of rubber,
their bottoms are made out of springs
They’re bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy,
fun, fun, fun, fun, fun,
The most wonderful thing
about Tiggers is:
I’m the only one!
That is Sasha’s theme song. He just bounces all over the place, all the time. He’s incredibly athletic, graceful, cute, babyish, stubborn, and sassy. Very intelligent, too, and somewhat obedient when he doesn’t have his mind set on something. He’s also extremely vocal. I’m only just beginning to learn what each meow means. He tells me off every day when I come home from work, and I do know what that means!
I’m going to take him to the vet soon for his annual physical and also to find out his weight. He went “off his feed” for a bit this summer (he was eating, but was very finicky and never finished anything), but as of right now is sitting down and eating an entire 3 ounces of cat food at a single sitting. He does have a slight pouch on his belly but I think he’s too active to become fat. He’s rarely still. I’m guessing his weight right now at about 14 lbs. He’s big! Not rangy like a Maine Coon, but round and solid and big boned.
For the future I’d like to have Sasha, another Semper Fi Siberian, and when we get to the permanent home we’ll round out our family with a Maine Coon. I’ve never quite forgotten dear Gideon (my MC who lived from 1982-2001), and would like to have just one more MC in my life. However, I don’t think an MC could keep up with a Siberian, so I’m figuring on having two bouncy Siberians and eventually one laid-back Maine Coon. That’s the plan, anyway.
Hope everyone is well!
Sounds like a good plan to me, Sandy!
