Tigger is in the building!
The Staff here. Austin and Tigger have known each other for over five years. In all that time they have scrapped and hunted and played together - albeit sometimes a bit roughly! Tigger would come in mainly because he wanted a bite to eat and possibly a nap in one of Austin's many napping places. Austin would be edgy and anxious the whole time, which is why we didn't encourage Tigger to come inside very much, though it was difficult to stop him as he comes with a built in battering ram. There isn't (as far as I have seen) any mutual grooming or activity associated with felines who are at ease in each other's company.
Until recently that is! The last week or so Tigger has not just come in to see if there is anything to eat. He has come in to play and chill AND AUSTIN HAS BEEN LETTING HIM! In fact Austin seems quite happy about it, even when Tigger is playing with his toys and scratching his scratcher and getting his smell into every nook and cranny. Austin just looks on quite relaxed and (almost) genial!
So after all these years of being mainly outdoor buddies, have they, at last, taken their relationship to the next level?
I am starting to think now that it would be awful if Tigger and his pawrents moved away!!!!!
