Lurkertype asked in a comment to the last post what Harrison looks like eating. He looks like a steam shovel since he comes right down over the top and chomps out a big bite with the jaws coming in from the sides. It gets a bit messy.
But, regardless, I decided it would be a good time for a long Harrison/Anna meeting with the door closed to avoid kitten distractions. I started with Harrison on the red sofa.
Wait, isn’t the patient supposed to be on the couch?
Anna was on the shelf by the window and gave him quite a look but no growls or hisses. Harrison was snorting like a pig each breath which oddly seemed to help.
After a while she lost even that intent look.
Anna likes a little brushing on the sides. When I do it she stands up and rubs her cheek on the window frame.
So she’s now ignoring Harrison like he’s ignoring her.
Things got a little tense when Harrison jumped down and came closer. He got a few hisses and growls.
And he got a few drinks from Anna’s fountain.
I’ll defend Anna some for this – Rhea goes to this same area from time to time and jumps up to drive her nuts.
But the tenseness drained away bit by bit and finally she was in a flat puddle on the surface of the shelf, not even watching Harrison.
And Harrison took a nap of his own.
So, fellows, you might try these rules on a difficult date!
- Ignore the lady entirely.
- Snort like a pig for the first 10 minutes
- Eat from her plate and drink from her drink.
- Fall asleep.
Apparently they just can’t resist this charm!
