Slowly settling in...

Well, it's certainly been an exciting week so far. Back to work, back to Tucson and back to kitty training!  Little Shadow has finally started to open up more. She lets me hold her and pet her and doesn't growl when someone comes towards her. Once she gets over her nerves she purrs so hard I'm sure she shakes my bones.  I haven't wanted to take too many pictures of her until she gets a little more at ease, but I did manage to get one good one when my boyfriend was holding her.  This was only the second day she was here, so she still was a bit frightened. You can definitely see how pretty she is though. :)  

Cyber has gotten even more comfortable in his surroundings, strutting around like he owns the house and making sure he always knows what's going on. He's quite the personal assistant, settling himself down in my lap or putting his chin up on the computer. He always wants to be next to you and make sure you haven't forgotten him. 


He's definitely a little lion man and looks like one especially when he yawns. I've gotten lots of pictures of him yawning. Considering he's so attached, he just wants you to pet him, not take any pictures so most of his pictures so far have been when he's sleeping or getting ready to. His yawns also let me know he's got a bit of tartar build up and a stinky mouth. We've been working on him letting me brush his teeth every day. Definitely not his favorite activity, but he's been a good sport about it as long as he gets lots of cuddle time afterwards. Not once has he ever growled, yowled, clawed or showed any sort of anger, even when I'm holding him and sticking my fingers in his mouth, definitely a great cat.

He definitely is still a goofy guy. His cross-eyed stare always makes me giggle, particularly when he makes a funny face with it. Other times though he shows off how completely gorgeous he is. He poses quite well sometimes. It's just hard to get him to stand still long enough to get a good picture. His little tail is always lashing back and forth with excitement.

He's such a sweetheart. I know he's going to make someone very happy and get snatched up soon. Hopefully they'll see that he and Shadow belong together, and they can find a forever home with room for two!  It'll be at least a few more weeks until they're up for adoption though. I'm enjoying helping Shadow realize that she's in a safe place. It's so gratifying to see her opening up. I've got to admit though, I'm kinda glad it's going to be a couple weeks before I have to give these guys up. There's been a big cold spell in Tucson that I haven't been enjoying. It's been great having my own personal kitty lap/hand warmer for when I come home. :)

  1. Too bad I already have 8 cats Katie, or I would be wanting 'Cyber' for myself. He is so beautiful.
