Wednesday CatCam: Buddy's Growing, Marmy Mourns, and Dobby Does What Dobby Does
i have failed to mention the enactment of a new law here at elle est belle la seine la seine elle est belle: please watch these precious, precious (oh, shut up!) cat videos with the sound OFF, or, failing that, promise to never, ever mention the juvenile anthropomorphic mindless nattering that tends to serve as a soundtrack. also... never, ever speak of, describe, or reproduce the ersatz porky sausage links attached to the beefy ends of what may or may not be human arms. that's a foreshortening distortion that is, well, frightening.

The Feline Remnant continues to show signs of sadness and trauma. We've yet to see both Marmy Fluffy Butt and Dobby the Wonder Runt behaving normally on the same day.
And yes, Marmy continues to want to murder the kitten, making at least one violent pass at the Fluff Puff per day. Of course, given that the Fluff Puff lives on, her dedication to his assassination is suspect.
Dobby functions perfectly, of course, in his role as Big Brother -- he willingly models the behavior we are wanting to see in Buddy, and has yet to show any aggression, fatigue, or boredom in his dealings. Of course, what he says in private might be a whole 'nother kettle of fish.
Marmy has taken to lying on the scrap of rug that her brother, Dobby's Uncle Kitty Big Balls (a.k.a. Little Boy), occupied in his last days. Dobby has even taken to curling up there some mornings. They are both putting on weight, a function of stealing kitten kibble.
Dobby, and this truly touches my heart, still calls for Sammy at night, and then will come to me with i-don't-understand written all over his wizened old young face. That's when a distracting belly rub comes in handy!
This last video, and you have probably figured out that I am bored this evening... This last video is going to serve as a reminder to The Dobster of Those Few Days When He Was Larger Than Buddy.
