Precision pooping

One morning I was very impressed with Bezukhov’s overnight pooping:

He has almost turned it into an art form!

Thomas & Phineas

Following on from my previous post on Fight Combinations, I have attempted to limit having only Phineas & Thomas out together.  If Cagney is snoozing in the manor then all is relatively calm.  However, when Cagney moves, both Phineas & Thomas want to be in prime position & this is when a fight can happen.

Most of the time Thomas flies away but he is not scared of standing up to Phinny  & at times he proves this.

Other times, it appears that Phineas is flirting with Thomas & starts to get a bit excited & possibly a bit aggressive.  Unfortunately, Thomas has no interest & this sometimes sparks another altercation.

Either way, I have to keep my eye on the two of them.

Though I have tried to limit their “fighting times” & also supervise them in the hope of averting a clash, there are times a full blown battle occurs.  Under normal circumstances, Thomas would flee my hand but I know a fight is bad when he does not.  In these instances I slip my hand between the two boys & usually get a hard bite (from Phineas) for my trouble.

I have spotted Phineas with a red blob on his toe which must have come from another scrap.

By far the worst outcome so far has been a scratch above Thomas’s eye.  Blood poured down from it & initially it looked alarming.  Fortunately, it was just a superficial wound.  Despite him rubbing it a lot (most probably to get the blood out the way) it was clear his eye was not damaged & he was still flying & landing fine so vision was also not affected.

Apart from the fights….

….all is good.
