cosmicgarden: (mina kitty)
Mina the tabby has relaxed a lot since arriving at our house 10 days ago. Less clingy, more calm, getting used to us and our comings and goings. Very accepting of us as her new staff. Still an incredibly well-behaved cat, just she's starting to ACT more like a cat (a little more entitled, a little less inclined to come when asked). Favorite toy: [livejournal.com profile] snarkyman's laser pointer - not the pointer but the bright dot it shines as we aim it around the house for her to pursue.

Me, I feel like I've been inducted into a cat-owners society I never gave any thought to before now. Delighted friends, colleagues, etc. tell me all about THEIR pets and show me pictures. I had no idea people would be so interested.

I'm getting to understand her meows. The obvious one is at feeding time, for "where's my wet food?" and "you know the wet food? I was hoping you'd bring some of that." The other one is "where'd you go?" when she looks up from whatever she's up to & realizes we've left the room. Wherever there is a lap, there is, usually, the cat; even if we are typing at the computer. (Not at the dinner table, I'm glad to say, though she does like to scoot up onto an empty chair under the table and keep us company, unobserved.)
