Galloping Gutsy9!

Gutsy9 is now over 3 months old (photos are from beginning to now). When we go outside he literally gallops after me, despite his crooked leg. This morning I left him inside while I filled the outside ponds because he could easily drown at this age. When I turned the hose off I heard this unearthly howl from the house – quite guttural – and it was him! His voice must have broken because usually, when he can’t see me, he just cheeps forlornly.

What an interesting experience!

    He likes mealworms, I see. I steep mealworms in hot water and put them out for the birds. They don’t last long on the birdtable!

      They cost $80 per kilo here! Needless to say, I have only ever bought one kilo and I made it last.

        I can buy a packet of 100 grams in a pound shop for 1.00 GBP. This is the cheapest I think I can get them.

        The supermarkets sell them for about 3.99 for 80 gram packets. Idon’t buy them there!

    Looks like he’s a survivor, Julie.
    Now that he’s a teenager and his voice has ‘broken’, it will be interesting to see how he develops into adulthood.

    Hi Julie … thanks for the cute pics.

  11. I feel like Gutsy-9’s auntie Laurie.:)

  12. You’re a real softie when it comes to animals, aren’t you? That probably makes you a very good person.

    I just can’t get over how big he has grown in these few months!!!

  14. This little guy reminds me of my Siamese, Vinci. I am his mommy, and he follows me everywhere, and he cries when I leave the house.

  15. What a total star Gutsy is! So glad he’s made it through until now, Julie. He looks very happy.

  16. His leg looks much better, and doesn’t seem to bother him much. Thanks for keeping us apprised of his development.
