(Where Remy spends his first time away from his owners... at Omar's house!)
Last night, Remy and Omar continued to play long after Heather & Simon left, although their rest breaks were getting longer and more frequent.
After 11, Conan was home and his presence spurred them back into action. Also, the bedroom door was previously shut, so opening it up got them all excited about jumping onto the bed multiple times and wrestling upon it. Before, they chased each other up and down the length of the apartment 'sans chambre', now, they chased each other up and down the length of the apartment 'avec chambre'!
When it was time for me & Conan to hit the sack, O & R were still at it, so we shut the bedroom door. But occasional thumps and pitter-patter can be heard thru the closed door for a good while.
The next morning, I opened the door to see two little beasts on the kitchen table, as if waiting expectantly for their breakfast. I proceeded to fill their bowls, but they barely sniffed at the food before wrestling each other all over the kitchen floor.
It’s interesting to observe their different styles of fighting. Remy tends to growl and hiss when put in an uncompromising position. And while I haven’t heard Omar growl, he does hiss too and makes a whiny meow in similar situations. Remy is bigger and stronger, while Omar is quicker and lighter on his feet.
Coming home from work was nice, as I was greeted by two sleepy-eyed kitties padding out of the living room. They behaved nicely as I fed them their dinners, each eating from their own dishes. Afterwards, they'd nibble at the other's food dish, just to see what it tastes like. (did you know Remy likes to eat plain rice?)
Right now, they're relaxing with me in the living room (Conan is out gaming again). Omar's napping on the sofa beside me while Remy's stretched out on the floor. Talk about contentment.
What else? Remy does have a curiously musky odor about him that’s definitely exuding itself onto Omar.
Let’s pray that Remy’s anal glands aren’t about to burst with anal juices any time soon.
Stay tuned for the next installment!

ooo, you're so lucky having all that entertainment! I remember how they just never stopped playing at the start...
But Remy is quite a sleeper, and it got funny later on when he'd be trying to nap, and Omar would still be trying to go at him.
I would like to see their fights now... it's funny that Remy is now the bigger, stronger one... I guess he'll be a big cat! You're right though, he's quite clumsy!
Are you enjoying all the antics? I wonder what that smell is that Remy is emitting. I don't think it's the anal glands, cause we haven't noticed a problem since they were juiced. Maybe the excitement of being around Omar makes his anus swell and moisten. It could be after going in the litter cause I know he digs around in there a bit too much... he's also lately been letting go some real doozy's that could clear a room.
