Milo and Rook were neutered about two weeks ago. Today they were given a clean bill of health by the vet-- everything has healed up beautifully.

I have high hopes for restarting intros with the boys. They were snuggling at the vet today, and Rook groomed Milo a bit before stretching his head under Milo's front to ask for some reciprocation. Milo doesn't appear to understand how to groom others yet, so he didn't go for it. We'll have to work on that.

We'll work on introducing the two boys to each other, then to the ladies (one boy at a time) before putting all four in the same space for playtime. Last thing we need is for the boys to get all huffy over the girls. Hopefully we'll be able to move the four in together in about a month.

Base of Operations for agents of SHIELD: Rat Division -- Raven, Cleopatra, Rook, Chess, and Milo

~~~We shall always remember those who came before.~~~
