All cat people recognise that look. You know, the one where the cat is seemingly mesmerised by something just to the right of you and down a bit. Only the cat knows what horrors are there.
Therefore he's been spending a lot of time looking over his shoulder and of course as looking over one's shoulder AND eating is not possible without doing oneself a mischief, I've been seconded yet again as watcher of back and lookout during meal times. I've even been considering laying a place for him at table, but am afraid his table manners might be too refined and genteel for the likes of us.
Actually, Austin, I said lay a place "at" table, not "on" table!
So everywhere I turn now I trip over a small black (and white) furry rug.
He looks kind of small and vulnerable :(
Even in the garden he has his hidey hole:
Oh there's that look again!
However he's not the only one to be afraid of Big Ginge! The hebe bush is a place of refuge for the hunted.
One of these days I'll be up early enough in the morning to catch sight of the ginger striped menace.
Seriously, do any of my cat blogger friends know how to reassure a 4 and a bit year old nervous cat?
I have also been considering getting another rescue cat, a younger one :)) I thought perhaps a young adult neutered female?
Input would be very much appreciated :)))
PS I'm getting obsessed by stats again. Why would someone in Iran be interested in a cat blog from Wales? The world is so small.
