I think I've been here about a week and a half now but when all I do is eat and sleep, it's hard to know if I'm coming or going, yet alone what day of the week it is!
So, my previous owner told mom that she'd never see me, never hear me (except when it's time to eat) and wouldn't jump up on anything. I tried to stick to that story for the first few days but the cat's out of the bag now...that's not me now!
I'm always in the window now so I can watch the birds out back. Mom put up several bird feeders which attract all kinds of things besides the birds....squirrels, dogs, a black and white cat, rodents, possums and raccoons too. So, for a cat that doesn't jump on anything, that window sill is about 4 feet off the floor and I'm always in it.
As for not seeing me...i've waltzed right up to mom while she's on the computer and jumped right in her lap just to see what she's burning up the keyboard about! last night we sat on the couch together and watched some tv. had a few other furbutts sitting around with us too. i'm doing pretty well with dealing with some of them considering i've never been around other cats my entire life!
then there's the "not hearing me" thing...so not true! i may not have a very boisterous cry but i get mom's attention. i talk to her all the time. last night i slept on the bed with mom...i laid on the other pillow and i stayed there about half the night. i chatted with mom for a little bit before she fell asleep.
i've had a lot of "firsts" lately and mom is very proud of me. i'm full of surprises which surprised my previous owner when mom talks to them.
