Calcifer is living up to his name
Well, I named Calcifer after a fire demon in one of my favorite movies, and he's been living up to that name! At first he was a bit shy and reserved, but his true personality has really come out now. He's definitely a cuddler (he's on my lap right now), and he loves to play, leap and jump like a ballerina. He's got long legs and a long tail, giving him incredible balance. Calcifer sleeps curled up under my chin at night, purring loudly until he falls asleep. When he wants me to hold him he'll sit at my feet and mew until I pick him up. Although he's blind in one eye, it doesn't seem to slow him down a bit. He likes to watch TV too. Calcifer is sweet and friendly- I don't think I could have found a more delightful kitten. It's amazing how quickly and completely I can bond with an animal. He and Cedric aren't exactly best friends yet, but they can sit near each other without hissing now. Calcifer feels much more comfortable if I'm holding him when he's near Cedric. I think it's just a matter of time and patience before they're friends. I'm so glad I found this little guy- he makes me so happy, especially when he looks up at me with adoration in those pretty kitten eyes.
