The undeniable lure of Happy Bear
So over the weekend I walked into the kitten room to see this.. Seriously, how did Maxwell even know that Happy Bear was there, waiting to comfort and cuddle him??
I am seriously starting to wonder if Happy Bear doesn't have some mystical qualities..
some undeniable, irresistible lure to kittens that they simply can not resist..
Well most kittens can't resist anyway..
We have made some progress with Allie and Maxwell. They are willing to climb up my leg to get onto the couch, but if I make any attempt to pat them they cower and run. I snuck a few in, and got both of them to purr a bit. Once Maxwell figured out what was going on he said "NO WAY!" and ran.. Allie was more willing to let me pat her in all the right places and seemed to enjoy it. Faraday... now that boy is stubborn! he still hisses at me, even when I am giving him food, he hisses at the food, he spits, he runs, he hides. I can tell he is severely lacking self confidence because his tail is quite often curled under his body, sometimes so curled up that it looks a bit like a pig's tail. He will let it up when he gets into play with his siblings.. but he has a very long way to go. He's also still dealing with diarrhea.. I'm going to email the shelter about that and see what they want to do next.
