It is amazing how two weeks can pass so quickly when you focus on things other than the passing of time and have responsibilities, especially new ones. BC is 2 weeks older than when Jamie first brought him/her home. He/she has already grown so much, physically and mentally! When we first brought him/her home, he/she seemed a little weak, maybe shy; now, BC has become quite adventurous and daring about everything, always ready for action.

Already, BC seems to have bonded to me and Jamie, and he/she is not content with staying on the floor when we are in a chair or on the couch! If the item in question is low enough to the ground, BC will attempt to scale it with the vigor of a professional rock climber. Sometimes, he/she will attempt to climb obstacles that would prove difficult for a cat twice his/her size. I have a slight allergy to cat dander, so I try to keep BC off the bed when possible. A kitten napping on your pillow can mean the difference between peaceful sleep and an all night sneeze fest! Despite the sniffles, I can live with such a slight allergy for a kitten that could make a stone statue crack a smile! Plus, over-the-counter allergy medications work well for me 😉

PS: Sorry for all the “he/she” and “him/her” nonsense! BC is getting older, and we will be able to let you know what his/her gender is very soon!
