I’d love to show you how Winston is doing… He’s sitting on me rubbing his face onto my laptop right now.
He always jumps on my legs (between my legs specifically) to relax when I’m watching a show.
There’re more photos of him on my instagram (ID : sparklessujin) if you’re interested.
He was meowing at night time quite a bit making us exhausted the next mornings, but we’ve tried to play with him intensely for an hour before bed and that helped. Playing with him, warm cuddles and belly rub, and feeding him with big meals are what we do now before we go to bed. He likes to sit near the window and sliding door just longingly looking outside, but if I open the door, he’s a bit hesitant. He went out to our garden a couple of times but wasn’t sure of himself so ran back to our house. I encouraged him to come out and assured him that it’s okay but I guess he needs a little more time to go for an adventure.
He hasn’t scratched any furniture or equipment around our house yet which we were worried about the most. However, he likes to scratch our carpet so we bought him a scratching pad and put a big blanket over the carpet where he normally scratches which he uses 7 out of 10 times for scratching now.
He is just so adorable; following wherever we go meowing and showing interest in what we do. VERY CUTE!
He was having trouble with going to the toilet for the first month but now he pees in the litter tray. Re poop, he only puts his front feet into the tray and thinks he’s good to go! So mostly misses leaving poop just outside of the litter tray because his back feet are actually outside but we lift him up to get in the tray if we catch him doing that. We’ve got 2 litter trays in the house and he uses both.
I made his house with the cardboard box and warm cloth inside but he only likes to rub his cheek around the house not really getting in there yet. He likes to sit on our dinner table chairs, our sofa, our bench seat, or just the carpet.
We’re feeding him with the special diet (dry food), wet food (canned one), sardine, raw meat, water and milk. He loves the milk and the wet food. And of course, raw meat always works. ?
He mostly just sleeps and cleans himself during the day and wakes up at about dinner time. He’s very gentle with our relatives (kids) but hates any visitors generally! Our sister-in-law is a cat “expert” but even she is not welcomed by Winston. But I found Winston’s better with small female humans than big men. He’s now slowly letting our visitors pet him though.
He’s having a bath on the bench seat where the sun is right now.
