Toby, day 44

Toby is over 500 grams and growing bigger paws and longer legs. He's chasing toys, plotting complicated attacks on them (hiding behind his carrier and showing up on first one side, then the other, to ambush a hapless plushie or an empty plastic water bottle), and can run the length of the hallway with dazzling speed. His jumps are getting higher. He empties his bottle of goat milk with celerity and a certain verve.
What he won't do is:
1. drink water, He still sticks his face in the bowl and sneezes, then stomps off in a huff.
2. eat wet cat food more than once a day; the rest of the time, he snubs it and, if it is placed in his cage, tries to bury it.
3. use his litterbox. We watch him, rush him to a box when he starts going, and clean up a lot. Because he had terrible diarrhea for so long, he didn't get the chance to learn proper box manners.
We've all got our work cut out for us.
Will try to get more pictures today.
