    How does she feel about E? Is she good with N even when he's holding her? Is she maybe jealous or afraid of E? Indy was very unnerved by C's crying at first. She still gets anxious when he cries, but it's gotten a lot better.

    When N holds her, she will come over and sniff. Maybe she’s afraid or uneasy, or senses that I just gave birth. When E does cry, she gets very alert and tries to figure out wtf is going on. Lots of head tilting and whining on her end.

    @moose when C was born Knox was like this. He didn’t warm back up fully until C was mobile and able to throw him food but it got a little better each month before that. In Knox’s case he was just afraid of C (not sure if he thought C would hurt him or he would hurt C). He hasn’t been that way this time so I think it was just a huge adjustment for him. I think just trying to pet her when you have a free second with no baby in arms and not forcing any close baby time right now is probably all you can do. Its temporary!!

    I don’t know if this eased things or not, but we did a lot of shirt wearing/wrapping baby in same shirt and then putting it in Maggie’s kennel to sleep with. She was a little stand-offish with me at first too.

    My poor Bunk has a bladder infection / UTI. Having had many UTIs in my life, I feel so much empathy for him, poor guy. Also vet bills for an emergency Sunday visit are Not Great, Bob.

    Thankfully this was our regular vet office, but they charge a premium on Sundays, and only see urgent patients. It would have been worse at the ER vet I’m sure! He still seems uncomfortable but he’s been lounging in his fave Poang chair a bit so I’m taking that as a good sign.

    Ben wanted to go on the balcony about 30 minutes ago so I told him fine but that he only had 30 minutes and then would have to come inside. This motherfucker just came in on his own and jumped up on the couch... 30 minutes almost exactly. WTF.

    It's so freaky and creepy but also satisfying when they understand you.

    Hazel cornered the mouse in the house and then stared quizzically while it got away.

    Cool cool.

    Thankfully it ended up in our “humane trap” and Z left the house in his PJs to relocate it to a nearby park.

    Gloriously inconspicuous.

    I should probably have said, wean her off all the wet. We are mixing 50/50 currently.

    Milton had a complete meltdown when we took him out to the car to go to the vet. I’m pretty sure he thought he was going back to the shelter. From the moment we tried to go out the front door, he started shaking and cowering, rooster had to pick him up and carry him.
