Settling In

For a recently feral cat, Madness is doing very well. She is still a little skittish, especially when I walk around the apartment. I think I just look so huge to her. But if I sit down she will come over to me and let me touch her and even scratch her tummy. However she does NOT like to be picked up.

She is also VERY talkative. Not like her brother (Dobby) that rarely said anything. Until last night I put her in her jail at night when I went to sleep. But last night she told me in no uncertain terms that she is now settled enough to be allowed to run around during the night. Her other favorite thing to tell me is: PLAY. PLAY. PLAY. She loves those fev-vers! She is not as bouncy as Dobby, but is a big jumper.

Here she and Bubbles are sleeping on the couch. Bubbles would prefer to be outside, but I just decided that he had to stay inside since it was pretty cold. After he made a few pitiful crying sounds her accepted his fate and took a nap.

As usual Mrs. B doesn't really care one way or another, as long Madness doesn't eat her food.

Now I'm going to try and catch up on all the blogs I missed this week.

She's kyoot. Mebbe Bubbles wil accept her better than Dobbie

Emma's Kat said...

She is doing very good for being outside. I've had 4 months old fosters that were ferral and it took weeks to even get them to come up to take a treat from me. Maybe someone else was feeding them? Anyway, so glad she's settling in. Is is just me, or does she have big feet?!

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Yeah Bubbles! See, its not so bad. Maybe its because Madness is a girl that he's being easier? Glad to see them working it out.

Merlin & Dobby said...

I am glad that Dobby's sister is doing so well. He will be glad to hear it when he comes home from the VET today. He still doesn't talk much. When he does, he makes a tiny little pitiful excuse for a meow that Mom thinks is "sooo cute." Whatever.

what cute pictures, love the couch photo. Madness is a cutie pie. She sounds a bit like KC.

For being so silent the first five months, KC has turned into quite the 'chatter'. She does't meow, but she makes these enchanting little musical sounds, like a trill. And she follows you around, chirping.
