THE EXPERIMENT IS A SUCCESS SO FAR

The pawrents have been letting me in the house now for a couple of weeks, and so far all is going pretty well. No fights really, not even hissing, though I’ve been snubbed some by the older two. Fearless is the only one who likes to play with me occasionally. I think she’s sort of glad to have me here since Samhain and Sleeper tend to stick together, excluding her sometimes.

You have to understand, though, that we all know each other fairly well from all the times that they’ve been out walking on their leashes and I’ve accompanied them. I love to go for walks with the Mama and Seven, too, without the girls!

I still have my little house out on the porch – it’s the big Styrofoam rose cone that the Mama duct-taped on a Styrofoam door with hole in it and added a fabric wind flap. Then the whole thing is slid into a cardboard box which is inserted into a bigger cardboard box with some insulation stuffed in the air space between the two boxes. It’s pretty snug in there with my blankie. Right now the weather isn’t too cold, but no doubt the Mama will let me stay overnight when it starts staying freezing outside.

I know how to get in and out of the cattery by myself! But the Mama doesn’t think I’m using the litter boxes in there. Instead I wait until she lets me back outside again. We’ll see how that goes when the ground freezes and the only soft dirt is the litter in the cattery or the litter box in the bedroom. I may change my tune then! Anyway, I ‘m being a gentleman and not using the walls or carpet (thank goodness, the Mama says!).

Oh, and the Mama is going to post an incriminating pic of me and Fearless in front of the woodstove – hehehe…

Hi Socks!

It's great that you are getting to spend some time indoors! Maybe if all goes well, you won't want to go out during the coldest part of the winter. I bet Fearless likes having a playmate!

Being inside is great! Still, I like being able to come and go. The Mama was worried the indoor girls would get too jealous about that, but so far it's OK, though Fearless continues to try to go outside constantly anyway! She was like that BEFORE I came in. MOL!

I could have sworn we commented on this diary before. Maybe we got distracted with your pictures...I remember commenting on those for sure.

Glad things are doing well and it makes sense that you get along with Fearless your about the same age. Now about the pic...be careful! Those pics stay with you from here to eternity.

I'll have Zach talk to Sleep and Sammie. They need to be mothering you two not sticking their noses up in the air.

Thank you, Mallee and Gris for the moral support! Gris, if Zach can change the Sleep and Samhain's minds about me, that would be great. :)
