Friday Felines

Since bringing little Ru home..
...I've often joked that we got a cat for Peno... since he seems to prefer her to us most of the time.

He doesn't like to be picked up, swaddled or anyway cuddled in the ways Tux and Rocky use to. But this week, the tables seem to be turning. He's not struggling right away when I pick him. He's even let me wrap him in blankets a few times...
I thought at first he it might just be my knitting he was enjoying, but he also let me wrap him up in the white fur blankie (which seems to be his blankie now)
In addition, he's started hopping up beside me every night after dinner.
He won't sit on me, but he leans against me, looking for attention. Again, I thought it might just be that I was usually using his blankie.... but then the other night...
...just as I was about to get up (of course!) he just came along and snuggled right down. It's not quite my lap (he still refuses to sit on actual body parts). It was rather uncomfortable for me... but I just couldn't move him. But hopefully this is just the start of more uncomfortable snuggles... it so nice to see him trust a little more every day. Especially considering the scared little creature he was the first time we met...

HIs personality is just coming out in the best of ways. He's got you wrapped around his paws!

He is such a beautiful young man.

I'm thinking his personality is a lot like Giroux's. Giroux will let you hold him briefly IF you are standing up. He wants no part of being held if you are sitting down. Don't know what that is all about, but it's who he is.

I keep hoping someday he will sit beside one of us. For now he just lays NEAR us.

Sadly, we don't know all they went through before we adopted our sweet boys. There could be very good reason that trust grows slowly.

He reminds me of a cat my sister had, Sam, such an original name! LOL. Sam was a dog, basically. His every characteristic was so dog like. Never seen that before or since. Glad he is coming out of his shell.

Winter is coming. Maybe he'll want to snuggle when he wants your warmth!

That's my Herbie. He took forever to warm up and now he's just a big cuddly baby-to me. If The Mister comes in room he takes off and hides.

He's getting so big. Hopefully he'll learn to snuggle. They are all so different.

Oh he's adorable!!! So glad he's comfortable enough to snuggle. Just wait for the cooler months!

Some cats don't like snuggles that much, Ray is like that, but occasionally she'll decide she wants snuggles and it's always just as you want to move, but of course then you just don't move cos it's Ray!
