Day 26 - 6/19/08 - 5 Weeks!!

Weight: 1 lb 5.2 oz

Feedings: Every 6 hours

Eaten in last 24 hrs: Stopped counting because on a mix of formula and 2nd Step Gruel. He is eating though, so no worries.

Stimulation: Dudley is now making bowel movements all on his own, all we have to do now is get him to do it in his litter box.

Well the party is over in more than one way. First Dudley as stated above there is no more stimulation needed for his bowel movements. Unfortunately, he hasn't gotten the idea that he has to do this in his litter box. But so far as with every new thing, Dudley takes just a little time to get used to an idea. Because of this Duley is now moving to bigger digs. His little box will not hold the litter box so he is moving to a bigger box (think of moving from a studio to a 3 bedroom apt).

Second way that the party is over is that, as posted earlier this week, Dudley does not like to be in his box (either one) and today he made his first and second great escapes. The first was out of his original box this morning and the second was just now out of the new box. I put him in his new box to get used to it and to see the litter box in it. It took 2 seconds and he climbed the wall of the cardboard and was out. This is no small feat because the walls of the new box are just over a foot tall. He not only has to get up the wall but down on the outside (this is not so graceful since he just lets himself fall).

Dudley is curious about everything. Time to kitten proof the house. He is inspecting wires and any piece of paper on the floor is up for grabs.

Just look what my fairy godfather left for me in my knitting bag.

He just climbed the outside of the bag and made himself a nest inside. Sorry it's so fuzzy but it was taken at 11PM last night and lighting was not the greatest.

I am so in love with Duddles McStuddles. So absolutely in love with him! What a miracle of life to witness firsthand.

THANKS to all of you for keeping this diary and taking great pictures. I may not comment every day, but I do visit here often. I love seeing his adorable little mug.

He is so cute I can't stand it!!! Give him MANY kisses from his San Diego auntie.

He is already entering the mischievous stage. What a handful! You can't turn your back for one second with that curious little adventurer. Sounds like Dudley wears the pants in your family.
