I haven't done a Gizmo post since back in September, so I thought I'd give a little update on how he's doing.
First of all, as you may see, he's huge! He really has grown so much that when I look back on older photos I'm just blown away. It's hard to remember he was every so tiny as he was here. Since I don't have human kids yet, Gizmo is my little fur baby so it's the closest thing I have to compare to when parents look back at baby photos of their kids and feel a bittersweet nostalgia.
He is about seven months old, so he's starting to get a little bit sweeter and more cuddly. He still loves to play and definitely still is a kitten, but he is showing beginning signs of being slightly more mature. We got him fixed last week and I always hate taking animals in for procedures like that, but thankfully he did just perfect and never seemed to be fazed by it at all.
Poor Fitz is still having a hard time adjusting to him because Gizmo always wants to play and Fitz is a grumpy old man. But I have noticed Fitz being a little more playful from time to time, so I think Gizmo is sort of bringing out the kitten in Fitz again. All in all, welcoming Gizmo into our home has gone much more smoothly than I thought it would. I'm so glad I tricked David into letting me keep him in the house!
