Super shy scardy cat Cashmere is a real love bug! Glitter is a bold carefree lovey girl!
At around 4am Saturday morning I posted this on facebook:
So it's the middle of the night, Glitter and Cashmere are playing Thundering Herd Of Elephants on the stairs, Star is giving them disapproving looks like an old bitty, and Leo is totally freaked out and keeps jumping up into my arms when it gets especially loud! and I'm In total heaven that the girls are so comfortable already that they're playing! Oh, and Greg is snoring and missing it all, lol!
That was the start of the turn around!
Not long after they finished playing THoE I noticed a little head peeking up and down on the other side of Greg. I realized it was Cashmere. I called her name, trying to use a high pitched voice which I understand cats respond more too. It worked, she perked up and jumped over Greg and came almost close enough to touch.
Greg woke up and she went over to him. He reached out and pet her! She did not run! In fact, she went about nuts turning herself in circles and rolling her head upside down almost rolling over as he pet her!
Was I jealous? You bet!
But not for long because she soon came to me for attention. She was in heaven! Oh the petting and scritching she wanted and received! She was turning herself inside out for attention! Just as fast as she arrived, she took off. We went back to bed. Then I noticed her again. I called her and told her that if she wanted more attention she was going to have to learn to get on the bed with me.
And she did!
She jumped up and walked up me until she could practically purr right in my face as I pet and scritched her! She even let me rub her tummy!!!!!!!
And Glitter! As I posted previously she was coming to us for lots of pets and scritches. She is a little doll! She comes trotting into the room and rams her head into my leg, then gets pet and pet and pet then she trots back out. A little while later she repeats the whole thing, again and again. It's adorable!
She also let me rub her tummy as she rolled around on Leo's cat tree!
By Sunday morning, we had all four kitties in the living room, napping, lounging, window watching, doing all the things happy cats do!
Well, Star wasn't so happy. Though she has finally stopped hissing whenever they are in the room, but still growls when they get within a couple of feet of her.
Leo is doing well with the new girls. He doesn't want to play with them yet or anything, but he's curious. They don't hiss or growl at him like Star does. But he's still nervous of them. I think in time he'll learn that they don't want to fight with him and they'll all three play THoE on the stairs. I can't wait!
A few pictures: Glitter discovered the back of the recliner, I think she likes it, she got comfy and stayed quite a while.
Not so sure about how this thing rocks.. but it's comfy!
Star showed up, watched her and grumbled a little. Glitter seems to have the attitude of "What is your problem lady?" and never responds in kind.
Star: Who said you could have my chair?
Glitter: Who said this is your chair?
Star: Everything is my chair!
Glitter: Ok.... Whatever.
Hope you all had as good a weekend as we had!
