We've been having a bit of troubles that we've been having a hard time admitting to, and a tougher time finding a solution. You see, Castor has been getting more like a feral cat. Effurry month that goes by, he gets worser and worser. It started out OK.. When we first came to our home, Castor would growl at the bean when she came into meommy's room in the morning. But, he wouldn't hide when she was awake. It progressed and he would hide when the bean was around. H'e gotten to the point that only meommy can be around him. If daddy and the bean are around, he won't even come out for stinky goodness. He still sleeps in the bed with meommy and daddy. That's the only time he will tolerate being in close proximity to daddy anymore.
Let me stress that daddy and the bean have NEVER done anything mean to Castor. And the vet has checked Castor out. He's physically fine. But he's got a heck of a mean streak. He doesn't like playing wif me anymore. When I try to play, Castor runs away or fights back aggressively. I just want to play, but Castor, well, he hurts me sometimes and I gets scratches on me.
Meommy and daddy have been trying furry hard to coax Castor out of his shell, but he just seems to be getting progressively worse. It breaks meommy's heart to think of separating us. It breaks my heart too. We're looking for any recommendations of how to work wif him and make him less scardy and aggressive. He's furry growly and scratchy, and bitey. We don't think his quality of life is furry good since he hides all day. Please let us know if you can think of anything we can do to bring him around.

I'm a good brother. I know Castor was worried about me, so I am sharing my stinky goodness with him. Even though he IS getting a little pudgy and probably doesn't need it!

We are all Furry grateful to have Pollux safely home and feeling better! Thanks to all you felines that purred for all of us! We couldn't imagine life without our Pollux. Especially me. I've never been separated from my brother for so long, and it made me skeered. I've been spending a lot of my time hiding under couches. Meommy said I shouldn't be skeered, but it made me nervous. I feel so much better now!
Purrs and headbutts to all my caring friends!

So, after dinner Meommy came in to check on us. Pollux had ripped out part of his catheter and there was blood effurrywhere! Meommy called the VET's emergency line, but only got voicemail. So, meommy and daddy cleaned him up, removed the bandage he'd chewed partly through, picked up the catherter bits they found, and rebandaged them as best they could. It doesn't appear to be bleeding anymore. We're all just waiting now for the VET to call us back. We thinks the situation is under control though. Meommy just freaked out when she saw all that blood!
So, that's where we are at now. Pollux is due to go to the other VET first thing in the morning. Hopefully he will leave his dressings alone and he won't give us anymore scares tonight.

So please effurrybody, keep Pollux in your purrayers. Maybe he'll just need some fluids and he'll be home tomorrow feeling himself again. We're all going to miss him under the covers tonight.

Pollux: I dunno... but I am still bloated from all that ham, stinky goodness and rodent cake.
Castor: By the way, many of you asked what was in that mousie cake. It was the finest of imported fresh rodent, I assure you.
Pollux: Thanks so much to effurryone who helped us celebrate becoming mancats. We appreciate each and every well-wisher who stopped by. After all, many of you were here to see us brought into the world by our mommycat Stella.
Castor: Yes, thanks effurryone. Now, I think I'm going to go nurse this niptini hangover with a little of the hair of the cat... Anyone seen the blender?
Pollux: I dunno... it was a wild party with so many kitty blogger friends, no telling where the blender wound up!
Castor: OK, I'm just gonna go straight for a shot of nip!
Pollux: Thanks again for effurry cat that came to our party! Hope you all had as much fun as we did!

And ate a lot...
Not much has changed about those three things.... but now we are BIGGER!!! We don't fit in our bed together as well as we used to, but us meezers never mind sleeping in a heap, do we? We eat A LOT more than we used to, sleep A LOT more than we used to, and plat A LOT rougher than we used to! We also have a forever home in Kentucky even though we were born in Florida! Our new fambly loves us very much and we are very spoiled felines!
Meommy has got so much stuff ready for our purr-thday party! Please remember to drop by Sunday and party like an animal on our special day!

Aren't I such a handsome young mancat! Meommy caught me enjoying my sunny window and couldn't resist a picture of my charming profile. It almost looks like I'm outside, but I'm not. I'm becoming increasingly curious about the great outdoors.... I've been known to hover around the door when the humans are coming and going. I remember how Apollo smelled of fishies when he came back from his great escape... I bet I could gets me some fishies too... Meommy tells me I should stay inside. She says it's not safe for handsome young mancats to go outside. There be coyotes, cars, and she's seen a big mean ferral mancat in the neighborhood. Castor doesn't think going outside would be a good idea either. But he's just a scairdy cat. He even hides from the little girl bean when she's being squeally. I just chase her. Little girl humans can be such fun...

Pollux: Yeah, who'd want to tussel with a psycho laser eyed kitty! We survived our time without meommmy. She got home late Wednesday night so she was only gone one whole day! Good thing too because granddaddy forgotted and closed the door to the room with our litterbox that morning, so it would have been bad news if she was gone longer!
Castor: I really didn't make furrends with granddaddy too much, but Pollux did manage to change his mind a bit about cats... he said Pollux wasn't too bad for a cat. Hmmph! for a cat! Meommy said that for granddaddy though, that was a high compliment!
Castor: Meommy was soooo busy with werk last week that we didn't get to blog or visit our furrends blogs. We're glad she came home early, but why couldn't she take the time to let us blog?
Pollux: Humans... sometimes I wonder why we even bother trying to train them....

Pollux: I decided that I will share my millie bed with Pollux after all. I think he's been using it when I'm not looking anyway. There seem to be an abundance of long multi-colored furs in it too, so I think he's been having company!
Castor: You're just jealous Kaze hasn't been teleporting over to play wif you and your toys!
Pollux: Besides the only thing better than one meezer in a millie bed, is two meezers in a millie bed.
Castor: Well, actually I can think of something better! Me and Sophie in the millie bed, with tummies full of stinky goodness! That sounds just like heaven to me!
Pollux: Well, for us this is Toasty Tuesday, but for meommy, it's Tile Tuesday. Meommy is growing very impatient with a tile shower installation. The installer thinks he can come and go as he pleases. Meommy is about to wring his neck! This is how the shower looks after a week and a half! He should have finished last week if he'd ever show up when he's supposed to! We think we're going to hide in our millie bed when he finally shows up today 'cause meommy has been really upset that he's late every day, and some days he doesn't show up at all! We thinks he's going to be in a lot of trouble if he's not done by the end of the week! Meommy said something about him being fired. Does that mean she's going to setting him on fire or something? Yikes!

Pollux: Thanks, bro for sharing the sunny spot and not pouncing me. It's been a tough week. Meommy has been after me for various offenses. She says I chew her hair too much. How could she say that! I'm just trying to groom her, but her hairs are so long, they gets all stuck in my mouth! And she's had to move her make-up brushes inside the cabinet instead of on the vanity because I think they make GREAT cat toys. I got in trouble for some sloppy litter box issues. I had the squirts, and some got stuck, so I did the only thing I could think to do- I scooped my bootie on the floor. Some was still on me too, so meommy had to clean my furs, my backside, and the carpet. I was soooo embarrassed!
Castor: Yeah, that was furry funny! But I've been getting in trouble for my litter box manners too. Meommy has been telling me that I need to start covering my pees and poops up. And I really like using the same place in the litter box over and over again. Since I don't cover it up, it becomes a massive stinky place in the litter box even though she cleans both of our boxes every day or every other day as needed.
Pollux: And we have another bone to pick with meommy. There has been talk of going "out of town." She said that daddy bean will also be "out of town." Meommy's daddy will be house sitting (and of course, cat sitting and woofie sitting and little girl bean sitting) for TWO WEEKS!!!! This news was bad enough, but we also overheard that the grand-daddy bean DOESN'T LIKE CATS!!!! He joked that he might SELL US if he got a good offer. Meommy said she wouldn't sell us for a squillion dollars. Phew! That's good news. But we're not at all sure of grand daddy bean. Who's lap are we going to sit on? Will he give us our stinky goodness? Will he place feather wand with us? Will he slip us a bite or two of food from his plate? Will we be able to blog and visit our friends bloggies? Somehow we doubt it. Meommy is going to leave instructions, so hopefully grand-daddybean will do ask he's asked. And surely he won't be able to resist our meezerly charms. Maybe after two weeks with us, he'll become a faithful human servant too!

***UPDATE*** Apollo is home! A neighbor found him frolicking up the road quite a ways on her way to drop off her kids at school. We snoopervised him when he came back inside. He smells like fish. We thinks whatever adventures he had must have been fun if they included fish! Meommy says we must not explore the outside though because Apollo is furry like a car did not bite him. Yikes! He's safely home now, and we are all furry glad!

I'm upset with Meommy that she hasn't bought me the gifties I requested for my Sophie. She promised she'd go to Petsmart and get her some things I thought she'd like. But there were some really horrible storms here in western KY. Lots of people were hurted and killed in the storms. We got lucky and no tornados came here. We all did go to the basement bathroom for shelter at one point though. But our house is on low-lying property, and some the drainage ditch around the house got full of leaves and debris and isn't deep enough for torrential flooding. Water came in meommy's office and garage. It took several days of cleaning to get the office sorted back out. Now she and the neighbor are working together to get the ditched dug deeper so the water won't get in anymore. There's a big tractor digging it outside now! So, she's promised there will be slightly belated gifties sent to my darling soon. I guess I understand the situation. After all I DO NOT want water in my house anymore! Water is no fun for kitties!

We have updated our blog template to be more festive for Valentine's Day. Meommy helped us pick out the new colors. She suggested pink, but we reminded her we are young mancats, and pink is not mankittenish at all! We settled on lavendar. We also added Sophie and Kaze's pictures to the bloggie so effuryone can see pictures of Castor's purty ladycat and Pollux's special friend.

We've decided to post our profiles on the Single Kitties Love Cafe! Here's our photos that Meommy took and made some lovely backgrounds for us for Valentines Day. Aren't we the best lookin' meezer mancats? I'm sure there are lots of single girly cats who would love to be our Valentines!
