BEAU - Video...Interaction Apres V-E-T!

Just wanted to post this video I took of Beau today.  I feel pretty confident that in, ohhhh, another 2 weeks he just might let me close enough to take off that dang harness that's twisted around and looking all miserable on him.  Dr. Steinberg advised I NOT try for fear of another bite. (My hand is, I would say, 90% better, buit tomorrow I think I might make an appointment with the I.D. Specialist, because my knuckles on my left hand are still sore and swollen.  I just don't want anyone reporting this bite to any authorities.  "Authorative Types" are generally @$$-XXXX, well, fill in the "blank"!)

Brutus is NOT faring well at all this time.  She gave me a referral, of a specialized Vet that can do diagnostics, which he never really had, to confirm Asthma or something else - a "Lavage" of his lungs.
Also, it's been 4 years since he's had a full work-up...I want him to outlive me, so I need to get onto this asap...

I will try to post Videos to YouTube first then sending them here, because I think - well, hope - Blogger is happier this way.

Enjoy your Thursday.
Please rest assured Beau has more than enough food and litter for quite some time, many thanks!  He's not felt comfortable about his "Ham-mick" (I think he feels a little too "exposed" in it) but Brutus is lovin' his, thank you Mo!  (It is now withstanding 22.8lbs of Red Texas ManCat - I can't believe he GAINED A POUND since JUNE!  Oy!  And I've had him on Iams DIET formula!  His "Tinker Bell Laser", unfortunately met an early demise.)  He will chase that when he's feeling well.
He will feel well again.
I hope.

If you could hear my speaking on the video, I mentioned Beau had been on my bed - to walk across it, but still, I felt it was a significant move forward.

Well, look what I just saw him do!

We are Quite Amused.

Progress is being made. Sometime soon Beau will be hanging out with you all.

Purrrrrring that QM Rose's hand feels better, soonest, too. Cat bites are not to be trifled with.

We hope Brutus gets to feeling better.

Beau is looking more and more at home now. It is good to see him up and moving around, and feeling more comfortable being out of his secure area.

We are also purring for Brutus.

It looks like things are really coming along with Beau. Just the fact that he is relaxing on the bed is a big step.
We sure hope that hand is getting better. And we also hope that they can help Brutus too.
Take care Rose. You are doing a fantastic job with Beau. Take care of yourself.

Hi Rose, we are so glad Beau is finally opening up. You are doing a great job, he just like things slow! We hope your hand is better soon. We sent a package and one of the things in it is a crinkly tunnel. Our fearful kitty likes hanging out in hers when she's feeling unsure but she's not under furniture, so it brings her out with us a little more. And it can be moved to different rooms as needed. I don't know if you can find it, but it might be a good thing for Beau???

Beau is definitely looking more comfortable in his new home! Thank you for being so patient with him. :)

We are purring and praying that Brutus feels better soon.
