Hello there, it’s Sister Saturday, I know you know that and it’s me Seal, and I know you know that too. I must be easy to recognize or something. Things have been going pretty good with me, at least for the most part. Some days are a little more challenging than others, but maybe that’s to be expected. Well, sometimes I expect it and sometimes I don’t.
What am I talking about? Being formerly feral, yes, formerly feral can be challenging sometimes. Brother Simon and I were 9 month old feral kitties when we were trapped by the human who became our Dad. Then we were carted off to some really scary place, woke up all drowsy and confused, and then got toted off to another place for some tests we didn’t understand. Needless to say, when we moved inside the big house we had a lot to learn. We spent our first year in the big bedroom behind a close door.
Actually, we’re both doing pretty good at the formerly feral thing, but there are a few things that happen everyone once in a while that awakens my inner feral. What are those things? Well, I’m glad you asked. Unusual noises or noises I don’t expect is one. Sometimes the Dad or Mom will bump into something and it makes a loud noise, that scares me. Yelling is another. Yelling? Yes, really. I know you’ll find this hard to believe but sometimes my Brother Simon gets into things he shouldn’t. If the Mom or Dad yells at him really loud I go scootin’ too. Something new or something out of place scares me too, like when the furniture got moved and the Christmas Tree appeared.
If those things happen I resort to my feral safety program and hide and avoid the Mom and Dad for about 2-1/2 days. Fortunately the Mom and Dad have figured this out and do everything they can to minimize those scary things. I appreciate it too, it helps, I don’t like being a scaredy cat. Is there anything in particular that scares you???
I hope you have a fantastic Saturday, see you soon! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
