Yay! He started using his litter box! I was a little worried when I woke up this morning - but Willow came bounding up the stairs with, "Good news, Mommy! He used the box!" And I have seen him a few times today wake up from his nap on the sofa, go downstairs and do his business. Yay! It wasn't the first time I was peed on - I think that was when we were raising piglets in the house when the mother pig went psycho - but it is never a fun thing.
My in laws came over to meet him this morning and he jumped up into both of their laps (I told you he was a lap cat!) He is very curious of my knitting. If I pull long on the skein and a bunch comes out he pounces on it and looks at me. "Are we playing now?" Willow has a half dozen of my small odd balls on the floor in the living room - it's no wonder this cat is napping right now - a five year old girl with her first pet really puts him through his paces! He also likes combing Willow's hair with his claws. I have seen him do this twice now when Willow was snuggled next to me and he was in my lap. He stretches out his paw and combs it through her hair.
Why didn't we do this sooner?!? Someone asked about Forgotten Cats. When we adopted Lucky he was neutered, was tested for FHIV and Feline Leukemia (negative on both), had all his shots (except his last Distemper one which I need to arrange for the end of the month). He was also flea-dipped and had his ears checked for mites. He didn't have a backstory with him, but I honestly think he must have been somebody's pet. He is very loving, great with Willow, and doesn't seem to have an aggressive bone in his body. As I had mentioned before, all he wants to do is snuggle in your lap.
