Hiding under things, chasing anything remotely toy-like, her pet Girl
A low food dish, being discovered while hiding, being asked to be quiet
Rattley mousies, anything small and movable, toes
Favorite Nap Spot:
behind the bed
The ability to go under one side of the bed and pop out the other, apparently unimpeded by the platform in the way.
FoxTrot was another free-range cat. She gradually accepted the oddness of people who set out food and weren't violent, but didn;t comne close enough for touch - although she did have four litters of kittens in the garage, and helped nurse other mama's kittens.
Every time she had a litter we tried to get the kittens just at the point where they were weaned but not yet ranging out on their own and either get their vet visits and adoptions or get them to the humane society. FoxTrot seemed to have mixed feelings about this - she wanted her offspring t be well taken care of, but wasn't sure about the lack of control she had.
When the time came to catch her final litter she happened to be in the garage as well, and we succeeded in catching her. Our thought was to get her spayed and vacinated, and then allow her to return to outdoor life if she preferred. Durign the few days until her vet appointment she stayed in quarantine in a bathroom.
During this time she developed an appreciation for indoor life, and decided to adopt the female 'cat servant' as her own. The day came for her spaying and shots, and she was delighted to come home to the same indoors, same people, and the option of exploring the rest of the house! She quickly discovered that the cozy den behind the bed hadn't been claimed by any other cat as a specific territory, and kept her close to her new pet, as well.
FoxTrot has done well in training her new pet - there are now small dishes of food and water near her territory, although within a few weeks she was cautiously exploring the rest of the house, making friends, and even daring to sit on furniture. That summer a litter fo foster kittens spent two weeks in the house (offsrping of one of her own kittens who had managed to escape capture-and-release), and FoxTrot was delighted to discover that she was not required to assist any more than she wanted to. As the weeks went by, she also discovered that the other cats were telling the truth, and the vet visit insured no more pregancies and the chance to be a kitten herself!
FoxTrot is now making up for lost time in kittenhood, and loves warm snuggly spots, regular meals, and rattly mousies.
