Happy On Chris’s Knee
Yesterday little 3-month old Oscar arrived for a short stay. Dawn (his rescuer) has had to go back to the UK for a couple of weeks, so Oscar is starting his holidays with us. We are all hoping he will benefit from having my cats (definitely Mori) to play with.
So far Mori has been brilliant and not aggressive at all; he seems actually a little bemused by this funny little thing that keeps rushing towards him and then backing off hissing. I’m predicting that by the end of the day they will be friends, and in the meantime he is definitely keeping Mori occupied. Saidi meanwhile is a little more wary, but as yet she hasn’t been hiding from him.
Overall Oscar seems fine, if still a little feral. Dawn and Nick rescued him from the water a few weeks ago and at the time he was very wild. Now he seems much better, although still a little nervous of human contact. Last night he had a nice cuddle with Chris and purred when we stroked him, but this morning he definitely didn’t want to be picked up. This is not a surprise as he doesn’t know us yet. He does however love playing with all the little balls here, actually has very good ball skills and seems to like interacting with us while he plays.
He is certainly adorable and full of playful energy and very welcome. i think we are going to enjoy his little stay with us.
