Jack Update - 6 weeks old!

We took Jack to the vet yesterday for the first of his shots. I have to take him back in a month for more shots. The vet was very impressed with his growth. Two weeks ago, he was 13 oz. Yesterday, he weighed in at 1.5lbs. Eleven ounces in two weeks!

He's a litte ball of energy that likes to bite and scratch with kittenish glee. The vet gave us some advice on how we can assert our dominance. Basically grab him by the scruff of his neck and hold him on his back until he calms. The vet also advised thumping his nose when he bites too hard.

Jack is much more coordinated and enjoys the cat tower we got him. Cliff loves him very much, but is now wanting to visit an allergist. The Claratin and/or Benedryl works for congestion, but his eyes get so red and itchy. And the Visine Allergy only works for a few hours at a time.
