Today I managed to catch Davout and put him inside Anna’s room for a long visit. She has from time to time avoided hissing at him and he still is very curious.
He’s a but unsure because there was a lot of chaos there just before. Anna has had quite a few lumps in her fur recently and it is very long, so I have been trying to cut them out. She isn’t very cooperative, especially when Rhea is around, which she usually is. Last week she managed to wiggle enough to get a nice nick on the skin. I changed to using a guard, but that, while avoiding leaving bald patches, is much more time consuming and difficult to get mats and knots.
To make matters worse, when I was working on Anna on that same towel Rhea began vaulting up to the back of the sofa and lunging into wild cat scraps there. I didn’t want Anna to go hide so Rhea was free to make several repeats of jumping up in various spots and getting into a tussle.
Finally I had to give up and put her up here. This is after Davout was on the sofa. She was very good…no hissing at him, mostly she ignored him. He stayed in for maybe 20 minutes with her before Rhea started returning to the door so I let him out and closed it.
At playtime it was an all-Davout show. There is a feather toy involved although it remains unseen…unlike his tongue.
Round eyes, crazy whiskers.
Hiding behind a short box with holes in it. There is an optimistic cat.
