Lion is still here.... although we continue to think of ourselves as his foster family. We were going to send him to the Kitten Associates shelter earlier this week, but they're having a problem in their kitten room with a recurring eye infection. So until their kittens finish a two-week round of antibiotics, Lion will continue to be a Bostonian.
He is a perfect guest, really, doing everything he can to insinuate himself into the household and our hearts. He walks around on us purring loudly and licking our faces in the middle of the night. He lies on our laps, he plays, he licks his plate clean. And, lately, he poses:
He helps me with my baking, as Harris disapproves:
He tries to think deep thoughts about Literature, to please Possum, although it's hard for him because he is too little to know how to read:
Our other cats continue to be polite to him but not affectionate. This is the first physical contact I've seen Possum have with him; unfortunately Possy was sleeping and didn't see how happy he made Lion:
So Lion's story, and our uncertainty, continues....
