Yesterday afternoon, I took Mom out front and look who was in our garden!
"Hey, Calico! It's me, Stormy!"
She stayed there and we did a bit of communing while Mom shot some photos.
Isn't she just beautiful? Here's a portrait Mom took:
I just slowly walked around, not getting too close, but letting her know I was there and wanted to be friends. I gave very slow tail wags to her to let her know I am gentle. Here is a collage of her, as she was studying me.
Then we got a tiny bit closer ... and she meowed at me and did Malamute ears!!!
Callie doing Malamute ears
Whoa. I was confused; I've never seen a kitty do Malamute ears before! She ran off before I could ask her what she was trying to say!
I emailed my friend Huffle Mawson for advice. She had some wonderful words of wisdom for me about why a kit-cat would do Malamute ears. She said it could be for all kinds of reasons and named a few and then said that she does Malamute ears when her mum gets in her face with the flashy beast! Ah HA! It must have been because of my mom and the camera! I hope it's that and not something I did. (Not that I'm trying to break bad on my mom, just that I thought I was making more headway with Callie than that!)
Just thought I'd update you! Since she's out there posing by our Support Our Troops sign (like another furry friend does), I'd say she's starting to feel at home! We're making progress!
