So we welcomed my girlfriend's cat, Lucy, into the family.
The family being myself, my son, my daughter, our cat Maddux and our other cat Irish. Poor Maddux is outnumbered.
girlfriend made a point of telling me and the kids that her cat is very
independent, does not like to be petted, picked up, or given treats. I
think she even used the word "skid-dish" when she described how Lucy
was around other people, even members of her own family.
you had only met me once prior to the move in, and now...she is my
pal. Lucy takes treats from me, lets me pick her up, lets me pet her,
and has even slept on my feet.
Initially Lucy just
hissed at Maddux and Irish. Poor Maddux, our resident Lothario...he was
sooo trying to woo Lucy. He followed her everywhere, she would just
hiss at him. Irish was constantly on the attack when Lucy was out.
is breaking up cat fights between Irish and Maddux. My girlfriend saw
Irish and Maddux fighting at the top of the stairs and Lucy just
watching...watching to make her stealth move. She accessed the
situation, jumped and landing right in the middle of the fight. Irish
and Maddux scattered, one went upstairs, the other down. Lucy then sat
guard at the top of the stairs.
Now Lucy wants to be
freed from her little bed in the master bedroom closet. She paws the
door to get out, just like the other 2 cats. She's also padding around
the house, not caring if she brushes past one of the kids (early on she
would hiss and run).
