It's hard to believe, but it's been almost a month since we officially adopted Relic.
My hope of keeping him as an indoor only cat have been completely dashed. The first thing he does in the morning is run to the door to be let out. And if you don't oblige, he gets increasingly creative at finding ways to get your attention. It's a good thing I didn't spend a lot of money on my curtains.
I'm not quite sure why he wants to go out so bad, because 80% of the time he just wants to sleep in the chair on the patio.
When he is in the house, he's made himself right at home.
He's getting along great with Burton. The two are wrestling now and it's hilarious to watch because he's twice Burton's size... but Burton never gives up!
Peno and Relic seem to have an agreement to pretty much just ignore each other. If they do happen to bump into one another, they try to act like it never happened.
Rupert is still the problem child, though he's getting better. For the most part, he ignores Relic. They can often be found in the bed together on those rainy days (at least a foot apart and not making eye contact). But every once in a while, Rupert feels the need to put Relic in his place. Usually with a sneak attack. But Relic isn't one to duck and cover... and since Rupert is actually a giant pansy, the sneak attacks are not very effective... usually one swat, a hiss from Relic and Rupert's running away.
I imagine in another month, those sneak attacks will be non-existent... and with any luck, they may turn into play sessions, just like Burton.
But the more Relic is here, the more it makes me wonder how someone could have abandoned him. He is such a sweet, social cat. I just don't understand people who treat pets as disposable things.
