beats working

"A mighty hunter before the Lord"

I bought one of those cat teasers tonight -- a bundle of feathers on a line suspended from a fiberglas wand. Cuthbert loves it. And when he pounces, he bites down, hard, and it's difficult to get it away from him. He'll be quite a hunter someday.

Meanwhile, he's thriving. His eyes are almost cleared up. He's growing daily (even though he could still crawl into my shoe and disappear).

He and Sassafras have walked around each other a time or two. They've touched noses, or almost. But mostly, they're still skittish of engaging each other.
