Wilson needed a playmate. And the lovely, caring people at Animal Allies had a kitten named Ernie. The rest is history.
Renamed "Sidney" (for Sidney Bechet) which somehow evolved into "Sidney-Beans," the 11-week old confident, affectionate, fearless, and healthy little purr machine came home to live with us a week ago and has settled in beautifully. Mr. Wonderful (Wilson), ever the adaptable and gentle-hearted, quickly assumed the role of co-trainer, groomer, and big brother to the little fellow. We couldn't be more delighted to have him in our lives. They are now quite a pair.
Sidney-Beans took to eating the homemade raw food recipe like a duck to water, and is emphasizing the point that kittens are absolutely voracious eating machines. If you're asking me now how much a kitten eats? My new answer is "more than you would ever imagine possible." How much food will you need to make to keep your kitten fed? A lot.
It's a joy to watch his enthusiasm for the food and to see him thrive. It's a joy to watch him play with his brother. It's a joy to have him on our laps.
It's a joy.
Welcome home, Sidney-Beans.
