      She can’t fit inside her scratchy incline anymore. We were hoping she would stay teeny, but it looks like she’s going to be a 9-pounder, like Tipper.

        Is that right? How do you guess how big they’re gonna be? I don’t have this skill — Teach me your cat wisdom!!!

          My guess is that she guessed nine because it’s the average for a mixed-breed cat without obvious characteristics of a specific extreme breed predominating. That’s just my guess of what she was basing her prediction on. Then, if Chickie matures to be anything between six and twelve pounds, the doc was “right” within a generous margin of error.

    Damn, those two are so adorable. I’ve got to type quietly so my guys don’t read what I’m writing and think I’m two-timing them!

      LOL! I wouldn’t want your guys to get jealous. It’s bad enough these two are breaking up OUR home; don’t want them to be homewreckers on the internet. (So far this week, they’ve busted up a lamp and a side-table.)

        Ugh. They don’t know their own strength? Mine just use selected pieces of furniture as scratching posts. I’ve given up. That furniture now belongs to /them/. 🙁
