Soleil is 8 weeks old (I think)! She is around that age anyways, and she is as playful as ever. I watched her for an hour as she amused herself with my feet, my most boring shoes (my purple Vans), and her new scratching post that she is able to climb up as of today. She is getting bigger quite quickly so I have to remember to take as many photos as I can! She loves the simple yarn ball my mom made her, cardboard boxes, and people who are equally energetic and fun as her. She’ll be getting her first shots this week! Heres to years of more happiness with this furball. :)
Soleil likes the dark chasms of my closet but is not sure what to make of the vacuum and cautiously monitored its behavior the entire time it was alive. She doesn’t like to be left alone too long and will meow, pat at your feet, and try to crawl up your leg. I love how she follows me around the house. She’s drinking out of bowl now!
Here are more pictures of Soleil!!
She is eating lots of kitty food now and likes to play and sleep. We are trying to train her to not bite so every time she does, we lightly tap her nose. (Thanks, Rachelle, for the tip!). We are cautiously letting her roam around the house; if she stays in the cage too long, she ends up pooing in there and becomes sad and miserable. :( We have to make sure she is always clean because she is now licking herself clean. She is pretty well litter trained though! Soleil will tell you if she doesn’t want to be taken away from the comfy spot she found on your neck and definitely loves being cuddled.
Today, she slept around my neck/trapezius while I made my daily smoothie. A couple times, she decided to slide down my back so I had to do an awkward plank to let her down without her falling…but then she just crawled back up my arm. I am excited for more kitty adventures with this orange furball!
Soleil is the newest addition to our family! We are so excited to have her in our lives. She was found as a stray in a pile of muddy manure on a farm in Chilliwack but she has been resilient and we have no doubt that she will grow up to be a strong, fearless cat. :)
She is currently 4-5 weeks old, female, and very curious about her surroundings. She eats a lot like me so we are already getting along! When we got her yesterday, she was mainly getting her nutrition from formula but when we took her to the vet this morning, we were told that she can start eating wet/dry foods. Along with that, she got dewormed and is good to go until her next check up at 8 weeks. When she got home, she hungrily ate the wet and dry food. We just have to force her to drink water because she doesn’t like it. D:
More photos to come!
This is my favorite place on earth. I’m glad I was able to finally visit this year!
Mayne Island, September 2014.
William and I hiked the Black Tusk today! Despite the rain at the beginning, we made it to the top as it started to clear up. From lush greenery to loose, black rocks, this hike was well worth the pain. We were able to do this long hike in 7 hours.
Chris and I did the Grouse Grind today! I wish he lived here. :(
Rachelle, William, and I hiked Eagle Bluffs today! The trail was versatile and fun and included a little lake and a great view of Metro Vancouver! Also, a couple of hungry ravens got into Rachelle’s berries. :P
William and I climbed Cheam Peak today after an offroading adventure in his Pajero!
I am having fun editing these wedding photos! Another sneak preview of Ian and Caitlin’s photoshoot. :)
