Maybe you remember this ginger boy... Benji, who we rescued (he was in a pitiful state) from a miserable dumpster life on the 1st of March this year. In spite of a somewhat compromised immune system (he is currently on his 5th antibiotic treatment since he was rescued!) he is thriving and in the company of good friends.
It's difficult to tell what happened in the first few months of his life but his is both extremely hyper and extremely gentle. He will wear out all the other cats in turn (Tiny & Ninja fled him in the beginning - they got so fed up with the incessant need to play-wrestle) until Mr. Moggles took over - a former alpha male never resisting a good "fight." Benji and Mr. Moggles hang out all day - in fact they adore each others company. It's sounds like they've having a major fight but minuttes later you will, literally speaking, find them in each others arms lovingly and endearingly washing each other. So when Benji is all wrestled out and mellow he will happily go and chill out with Tiny and Ninja. Then he might even give them the treat of a loving wash.
I did indeed promise to get back with some images of the kittens Twinkle and Emma playing together. Unfortunately Emma's had a very bad flu - I suspect she caught the bug from Benji. She for some inexplicable reason also adores play-wrestling with him - I think she is not aware of her own size (t-i-n-y!! shhh...) - so she is now recovering (much better already). Benji is very gentle with her - no claws - but he on the other hand still believes he is a kitten and will sit full weight on top of her until she squeeks for mercy. Yes, it's a kindergarten (a gorgeous one!) and it does need supervision from time to time! Anyhow... so I promise to come back to the kittens in the next post.
