From Marilyn Konefal - 24 April 2005
She's a little sweetie. I was truly hoping she would forgive me for her spa day and she has. I brought her home around 7:30 last night and by 10:00pm she was already on the top bed of the scratching post. When my old kitties woke me for snacks at 2:00am she came out for petting! She feels so soft now and smells so nice !! If it hadn't been 2:00am I would have spent more time with her! But I'm sure I will tonight.
I'm glad that she hid so no one else adopted her! :) M
I finally admitted to my hubby that I had gotten Otter and sneaked her into the house. He told me he had an idea I had gone back out to NY because I had put an extra 77 miles on the car! Then he admitted he had been considering telling me OK anyway! So now he knows and he's not upset about it.
Good thing, because little Otter surprised me yesterday afternoon by deciding to come out of hiding. She had been lounging on the cat tree in the sun and didn't run away when I came in with supper. In fact she was more interested in being petted than in eating! She does stay at arms length but she's so cute winding around with her back arched up in the air.
She lunges up into the air to make contact with my hand then comes pounding down on her front paws! I've never seen this before.
She decided to do some exploring this morning while I was snuggling with Missy and Fluffy in bed. She padded downstairs. But when we all came down and Amber (little doggie) got up, she panicked and hid under the couch. I was able to shoo her back up and she proceeded to hide under the bed again.
I'm hoping when I go home for lunch that she will be back out like she was last night. (It was so nice because every time I walked into the room she would greet me and expect to be petted.)
So - all in all - she has made great strides in only a day! I was quite surprised - but very happy!
