Perpetual Change

While I’ve been hunting for any signs of big changes in Anna and Rhea’s attitudes, Davout has been changing a lot over the last few weeks.  He’s always been more reserved and retiring out of a mix of caution and young cat independence, but it is getting easier and easier for him to assert himself for demanding things or just for affection.

Not all of these messages he’s been sending are selfish ones – he seems to have a sense of propriety that gets upset if things aren’t going like they should.  I’ve seen him reminding me to work on the blog posts a time or two.   He’s come to both tell me to go to bed if I am up later than normal, or to get up and out of bed if I am sleeping in.  And he often intervenes to keep Rhea from bugging Anna.

But the best ones are when he plucks up the courage to sit next to me and groom or get some petting.  It doesn’t last for too long so far, but any chance to give his soft fur some pets is welcome.  And he does enjoy it a lot himself.

There’s that tongue again!

    Pretty cats. It is fun to see one come into its own.


  2. Brulee is very similar to Davout. She’s beginning to let me know when it’s time for her to get some attention, but only on her terms.
