Trying to play

I was trying to get Aslan to play again today but you can see my his expressing that he wasn't having any of it. He wanted to relax and chill in bed with Mom and I wanted to run and chase again. That's OK, we don't always want to play at the same time. At least he's out and not hissing at me.

Play time!

Aslan and I played together yesterday. Actually played! Not fighting, not swatting at each other, no hissing. He would dart out from the bed and we would chase each other, then he'd hide again and start over. We were super cute and kitteny, but no good pictures because we were so fast.

Aslan came downstairs last night for the first time in about seven weeks. He had made it halfway down the stairs a few times but never all the way downstairs until last night. Mom was meal prepping for the week and Aslan's under-the-bed food bowl was empty, so he may have been food motivated, but whatever gets him there. He has started lounging on Mom and Dad's bed, and wandering around the upstairs. Dad took the litter box out from under the bed Sunday, which is a big step (and made them very happy). Hopefully Aslan will continue to be a brave boy and get his routine back.

Big steps for Aslan

The last two days Aslan has been acting more like his old self again. He's been coming out from under the bed and snuggling with Mom and Dad for hours, he's been chewing on the straws of their drinks (not Mom and Dad's favorite behavior, but so Aslan), and knocking stuff off the bedside table (also not a favorite, but his normal). Today he and I played in our new scratcher together. He still won't go downstairs, but he's also not just under the bed.

Aslan sighting

Yesterday when Mom was on the stairs putting her shoes on Aslan came halfway down the stairs and sat with her for a minute before going back up and getting under their bed. Late last night Mom and Dad's had Sonic for a late late dinner (Mom runs a theater and they're in Tech Week) and Aslan popped out for a sec to see what Dad was eating (he loves Sonic). Then today Mom had just gotten out of the shower and she saw him walk down the upstairs hallway to the back room for a minute then go back to his under-bed apartment. It's a start!

Happy 5th Birthday

April 30 was our fifth birthday! We celebrated with a Stinky Goodness cake topped with Temptations! Moon and Dad made Aslan come out from under the bed to taste some cake, then I got to finish it. I'll add some more pictures later. With all of Aslan's under bed issues I forgot to post this until today.
