Lefty has been making excellent progress in his acclimation to the indoor life. He has, in fact, been doing so well, we’ve officially declared him “no longer feral”.
The key milestone? He’s spending time on the bed.
Often with his best buddy Yuki–we’ve taken to calling them the Sable Saboteurs for their joint effect on the social hierarchy–but sometimes by himself as well.
There’s still some distance to go before we can declare him a fully-accredited indoor kitty.
Case in point: he’s still somewhat skittish about humans–
–especially humans with cameras. But then again, so are Maggie and I, so we’re not casting aspersions on our house panther.
But Lefty is coming to the realization that humans do have their uses, even beyond the delivery of food and treats. Pettings are nice–and they do require fingers–enough so that he’s begun actively requesting them.
And humans also make excellent pillows if you can pin them down.
