My! I have come a long way since I was adopted! At first, I was very very shy and nervous. When my new parents first brought me home, I ate a meal and quickly retreated under the bed. I was a total recluse the first day. I was too scared to come out. I only came out at nighttime when my parents were sleeping, but not for long.
On my second day, I remained under the bed most of the time. My parents were home allllll day so I didn't want to take my chances of being hurt. There was another kitty there, too, but we steered clear of each other. She isn't shy at all; she plays with the humans. She even sleeps in bed with them! I was so scared that I hissed at my new mommy when she looked at me under the bed. They left me alone the rest of the day.
On the third day, I decided to be a bit brave. It didn't look like the other kitty was being hurt. In fact, she looked like she was having a blast! I was jealous, so I decided to test the waters. I came out from under the bed and ran into the closet. My mommy found me in there and was talking to me. I kept my guard up. She got a toy and tried to play with me. I was tempted, but scared. I must say though, at that point I was getting comfortable coming out to eat, drink, and use the litter box. No one was bothering me when I did that. This day was the first time I interacted with the other kitty, Joop. She was being very playful, and she pounced on me. It scared me, but I knew she was trying to be my friend. By the end of the day, I was warming up to her and my mommy. Daddy went to work. I still wouldn't get to close to mommy, but I would sit and watch her play with Joopy. She came over to me with a toy on a string and I played with it a little. I don't go under the bed much anymore, I mostly lay in the cat carrier if I'm scared. Nobody bothers me when I'm in there, so I feel safe.
Today is the fourth day, and I'm really starting to get comfortable around here! I don't see my parents hurting Joopy, and she seems to be having a great time. I want to play, too! I was brave today and I played with Joopy and my mommy quite a bit. Joopy and I are really bonding, I love her! I let my mommy pet me today and it felt goooooooood! Now I want her to pet me all the time. I love it here, the food is good and the fun never stops! I am still a bit guarded, but as I said before, I just go in my cat carrier if I get nervous. I hope I bond with my daddy soon...but he's been at work a lot so I haven't gotten much of a chance :(
