The next time mom put down some food, it sat for awhile. But it didn't have greenies in it. Mom put two greenies in it, but Zaphy still wasn't sure if he wanted it. He waited a bit and then finally ate it. Since then... [wait for it... wait for it... wait for it... ]
1 - He's slept at the end of the bed (both sides!) instead of just Dale's pillow
2 - He's jumped off of the bed as opposed to looking like a human about to test the water to see if it's frozen
3 - He sprang onto the bed!!! He hasn't done that in so long! Tears came to my eyes.
4 - Rather than just hang out on the bench by my fourth fiction bookcase upstairs, he actually was hanging out on the piano bench!! Whoot!
5 - This one is the best yet. He went outside again! You see, Zaphy prefers to use the 'outdoor' litter box.
He's looking & feeling like himself again! Whoot! Yay! And thank you thank you thank you very very much to everyone for their purrs & prayers!
