A Tale of Two Cats

Well I just spent the last half hour petting Tootsie.

*happy dance*

Good nite!

Correction: It was Bunny. I got to pet both of them this morning. Now they are meowing for me, but I don't know what they want. I fed them at 6 am when Bunny woke me up the first time. ;-)

YAY! But it was Bunny, not Tootsie. They look a lot alike. I petted Tootsie this morning.

Bunny spent a lot of time on my bed last night. She thought I should get up at my usual time. I tried to explain the concept of a "day off," but she didn't quite understand. ;-)

They had reverted to the hide-under-the-bed strategy, so I was getting discouraged.

Last night, I fell asleep in the recliner and woke to find them both watching me from the foyer. Then Tootsie went upstairs and Bunny slowly walked over and started rubbing on me. She ended up in my lap. I would have stayed there, but my contacts needed to come out. ;-)

You wouldn't believe how many nights I end up sleeping on the couch because Pootie goes to sleep in my lap and I don't want to disturb that! :)

I haven't had a lap cat since before Sydney. I've missed it!

Yay! :) It sounds like they are starting to trust you/feel comfortable around you.

It's kind of a two steps up, one step back kind of thing right now. But I feel much better about things.

Yay! it has taken about ...4 weeks.

They want food, water, or petting if meowing at you.

Mine meow and give me puppy eyes if the want food.

Try reading or sewing and see if that attracts them.

They have food and water. Tootsie wants petting but she is simultaneously still a bit scared. If I move - even slowly - she will scurry away.

I've been pretty still so far, except when cooking my breakfast, but I can't be still all day. Too much to do and not much free time these days.

the best you can do is talk to them. Who's my friend? Who is a pretty kitty? You could try catnip toys..

I do when I see them, and sometimes when I don't.

I do know the rhythms of cats. It's 3 pm here right now, and they have been quiet for a couple of hours, and will be for awhile longer. It's mid-day. Time for napping. ;-)

Yay this is such great news! I'm so glad they're coming around!!

They're still somewhat skittish. I'm only "safe" if I'm lying down or sitting. ;-)
