We've got ANOTHER Winkler update for you today.
Remember Leonard? Of course you do. Here he is as a little lad...
And here is his today!
Here's what his mama, Laura, had to say!
He is a BIG boy! Leonard is now about 8 months old and outweighs his brother Tiberius, who is 3. He is very, very handsome with huge eyes, a very long, soft tail and extremely soft fur. The fur around his chin and his nose area have turned a light orangey-brown color. It's really cute. He talks a lot and loves to cuddle. Tiberius is now following his lead and cuddling much more than he used to. Leonard is definitely dominant and runs the show. I knew this would be the case the moment I brought him home and he growled at Tiberius through his cat carrier.
Tiberius loves to bathe him regularly and wrestle with him on a daily basis. this has gone on from day two. They both wait for me by the window everyday as I get home from work. Leonard loves food. He also loves opening cupboards. He uses his girth for momentum. ;) I will try to get a video of this.
One thing that Leonard has started recently is showering. Yes. My cat showers! This has been going on for about 3 weeks. He was always interested in going between the curtains and the shower while it was on, but now he has taken the plunge and goes all the way in! He usually swats at the water hitting the wall for a few minutes, then jumps out and finishes his daily "bath." The first time he did this I tried to dry him off and he got angry at me. Anyway, this is now our little ritual every morning. He sprints into the shower as soon as I turn it on. Afterward, he jumps back in and presses on the shower spout releasing more water. My next thing to try will be a bath, so I'll let you know how he takes to it.
I've attached a couple of pictures along with video proof of Leonard in the shower this morning.
Leonard makes me smile and laugh everyday. I am so glad that I found him!
Thank you so much for this great update, Laura. Clearly, Leonard is a happy, well-adjusted boy. We're so glad he found YOU!
