Friday felines

Those of you how have rescued cats can probably relate to this story.

When we first brought Relic in the house, it was almost as if he was trying to be on his best behaviour. He would never jump on counters or tables, get into my yarn, eat my plants… or really get up to any mischief. He certainly wasn’t like Chief Mischief Maker (aka Burton). It was almost as if he was worried we’d get rid of him if he was bad.

Now we’ve had him for a few years now, and more and more, I think we are starting he true personality coming out. He’s still mostly a very good boy, but he’s started getting…. braver. Or at least a little more comfortable with doing whatever he wants.

The other morning, I woke up to find him in my laundry basket. Now this isn’t bad (at least in my view), but it’s something he never would have done before.

I love seeing him make himself more and more at home

    It takes years for kitties to thaw out sometimes. I still can’t pick up our two indoor rescues. They totally freak out. I was trying to weigh them the other day and I have the scars to prove it.

    Giroux is the same way. Almost ALWAYS well behaved, but when he first came in he just slept curled up on the sofa. He used the litter box. He ate and then right back to sleep on the sofa.

    A week of so of medicine, good food, and not having to worry about the huge ferals, hawks, and raccoons outside and his true personality came out. He was a toilet diving, sock grabbing, food stealing kitten for a long time. His manners have gotten better as he got older, but he still has to be involved in everything we are doing, even if it means getting up on the table or counters. (Thankfully, he does listen when we say no — like if there is food up there.)

    I didn’t know Relic was like that but glad he’s feeling more comfortable. Do you think he’s feeling more confident because you have moved away from the old neighborhood?
