So many "firsts" today!

It's amazing how fast Yoshi is progressing with each day.
He's become so curious and is learning to balance so much better. He's not as clumsy as he was a few days ago! Today, he played with his cat toy for the first time; he picked it up, threw it, chased after it, and repeated. Then I caught him balancing on one foot for the first time while he relaxed on the kitchen counter.
And I also got him a ladder to learn how to perch/climb, and he made it all the way to the top today! I helped a little with that one, but he still made it!

Here are some photos from today's achievements:

So reminds me Salty when he was little. Wait til he tries running and trips over his own feet. Great toy, they get a lot of life out of those.

Re: So many "firsts" today!

Way to go, Yoshi...cute little dinosaur. We need a Yoshi emoji, considering birds descended from a small deinonychosaurian theropod dinosaur.

Re: So many "firsts" today!

OK, I had a small breakthrough with Kizzy today. For quite awhile now I've been trying to get her to eat soaked pellets with limited success. I tried soaking in water first, then soaking in apple juice. For some reason she doesn't like watery foods. She's said, "No way!" to soaked pellets, applesauce, pear sauce, all wet baby foods and even her hand-feeding formula at room temperature. She has only sampled Lafeber's Avi-cakes and dry cereals made for weaning human babies. When dry, the pelleted diets are too tough for her baby beak.

So I thought, "Why not make crumbles out of the pellets?" I got a napkin, put a Harrison's Power Treat inside and crushed it with a pair of pliers. Kizzy spent quite awhile eating pieces of that Power Treat. BTW, Power Treats taste even better than the normal pellets. Yeah, I'm a bit crazy, but I'd heard Harrison's used quality ingredients, so why not? XD XD XD If she sees me eating them, she'll go with the flow, I hope.

Way to go! Yes Yoshi has been eating crumbled up pellets for a few days now, he likes them very much! I'm glad you found what works for Kizzy!

Re: So many "firsts" today!

I got a little ball like Yoshi's for Kizzy (only red) and she is enjoying it so far. When they start playing rough, watch your fingers!
