Vito is doing wonderfully! He has really come out of his shell--quite the contrast to the quiet, timid kitten we brought home a few months ago. He is playful, cuddly, curious, chatty, and quirky. He and Conan (our 4-year-old extremely high-energy Yorkipoo) get along famously and love to chase each other around the condo and steal each others' toys. For a long time, Vito would follow us around the condo just as loyally as Conan, but now that he's in adolescence he has developed a more independent streak and goes where he pleases, as long as it's not too far from us (average time between us closing a door--any door--in the condo and him meowing to be let into whatever room we've unwittingly shut him out of is about 45 seconds).
He is getting stronger by the day and more bold in the distances and heights he attempts to jump. We're keeping an eye on it, but he seems to be managing just fine. His litter box usage is meticulous and he only claws at the furniture in order to climb it--a habit he is breaking quite well now that his ability to jump has improved so much.
We've attached some of our favorite pictures. Really, we couldn't have hoped for a more perfect addition to our family!
Thank you so much,
