Happy 10 Weeks and Another New Phase

Vinson on the Prowel
Vinson has very clearly entered a new phase of growing in the last 24 hours, as he celebrates his 10-week birthday.

He has really found his bark, and has also discovered that he is now long enough to stand on his hind legs (even with one in a splint) and get his front paws into many more trouble spots - chairs where cats are sleeping, the top door of his crate at work, our laps when we eat dinner, etc. These two things together mean a new set of corrections we're working on to keep him quiet and teach him not to jump.

As with the other bumps along the way, this is completely normal as Vinson grows, heals, has more energy and begins to understand and test his own capabilities (and ours!). It can be stressful at times, but it is all part of the process; and we love it.

Official weight update tonight after the vet visit. I'm guessing he's around 15 pounds, but we'll see.
