We’re allowing Sachiko to explore the house and to start interacting with the other cats. She’s had several play sessions in our upstairs hallway and a couple of chances to explore the house on a leash.
She’s met all five of the others, and she’s developing quite the interesting relationship with Yuki. He seems absolutely fascinated with her, perhaps because she looks so much like a tiny version of his partner in crime, ‘Nuki. Sachiko finds Yuki just as interesting. She follows him around the house, trying to–depending on her mood–snuggle with him, nurse, or bite his hamstrings so he can’t run away.
Finally, for everyone who wants a better look at the Pointy Princess than my lousy camera skills can produce, here’s a shot of her contemplating mayhem on her current favorite toy, the purple snake. (The photo is courtesy of Beth, who will, I trust, add a comment supplying appropriate copyright information and whatever contact/gallery information she deems appropriate. Thanks, Beth! Nice to have an actual, unblurred image that doesn’t make Sachiko look like a feline demoness.)
