When Melly was last weighed about seven weeks ago, I mentioned her preference for Scarlett's food and was warned by Dr. Warren that Melly could develop the feline version of rickets if she doesn't eat kitten food! That, of course, was a horrifying thought, so I've been making sure that Melly is eating the correct food and enough of it. Since Melly's been growing like a weed lately, it seems to be working.
Unfortunately, Scarlett loves kitten food and helps herself to Melly's. I'm trying to exercise her more to combat the resulting weight gain, and Melly is kind enough to assist by chasing and playing with Scarlett.
Scarlett is very vocal in her disapproval of Melly's playful moods, but when Melly is sleepy, Scarlett likes to investigate. Her usual pattern is to sniff Melly all over, lick her head, then lay down a couple of feet away.
