Monkey has gotten quite a bit larger and wider, and though he has calmed down a lot, he can still be one crazy monster. His claws also get ridiculously sharp. Because he won't let us (and by us I mean Griffin) clip them. If you even try to cut a single claw he makes this horrible howling noise (even though you haven't done anything yet and there is no way he feels any pain) and starts to struggle. And even if I help hold him he loves to swivel his neck around exorcist style and chomp down on any flesh or garments. Oh, and he has no qualms about biting right through the skin. Sigh.
Look at those claws!
Monkey must sniff each and every thing we eat or drink. He never really wants to taste, but can be relentless until you just let him sniff it already!

Mabel has been doing really well. She has a good appetite, and has even managed to play with Monkey's ribbon on occasion. Last night she apparently had a big adventure. When I woke up this morning and came upstairs, the back door was open and it had rained into the porch. There were also wet paw prints both coming and going. But Mabel was sitting there waiting for her breakfast. When I mentioned it to G (who had fallen asleep on the couch) he was all "so that was why she was wet. I just thought she was in the bathtub." In all fairness I must disclose that she does indeed love to hang out in the bathtub and the faucet does have a drip so it isn't that farfetched...

Playing with Monkey's ribbon. I have tried to get them to play with it at the same time (each with their own end) but neither will play with it unless I'm holding it. Silly cats.
Mabel helps felt her heart toy.
In Mabel & Monkey news, they have started to sleep closer together. This usually involves Monkey sneaking in after she is already asleep.
But on January 17 they made history by touching whilst sleeping.
Their butts and paws are touching! YES! It's still a long way from cuddling together, but I'll take it.
