Since moving in with my mom my furry family has increased quite a bit! Today I wanted to share my furred and feathered family with you ;-) If you know anything about me I'm sure you've seen my handsome Maine Coone cat, Calcifer. I love this sweet cat so much. He's so affectionate and loving and knows just when I need those kitty cuddles! I know it will take him a while to feel completely comfortable in his new home since he's a bit shy and very sensitive. Both he and Ginko have their own room (my bedroom) where they can hang out in safety and comfort. Calcifer still gets nervous when he hears the dogs barking (especially the big German Shepherd that doesn't like cats), but he's much calmer about it than when he first got here. He has several "safe spots", including his scratching posts (which have little houses on the bottom), the closet, and the one cupboard. I know it's important for cats to have safe places to hide, both cave-like spots and places where they can be up high. I positioned the scratching posts so the cats can lookout the window and also easily hop up onto the high shelf in the closet. It will take time, but eventually I think Calcifer will become more comfortable roaming the rest of the house (with the big dog safely locked up while the cats are out).
So that's the zoo I'm living with now, and I absolutely love it! Being surrounded by animals is pure Heaven for me :-)
