Last night the neighbour that I cat sit for called to ask me something. Of course the topic of kittens came up — I’d told her they were expected but hadn’t let her know they’d arrived. Turns out her grandson was visiting and I invited them to come and meet the kittens.
She ran to meet them at the door. She ran into the foster room (!) with us and had to be shooed out (Jasmine was not pleased but didn’t attack.) She stood up to peer over the paper “curtains” on the foster room door and meow at us while we were visiting the kittens. When we came out she was all over us demanding all the attention. And for the first time I saw her relax while being held. She usually perches on my shoulder but she completely relaxed and draped herself on Connor’s shoulder! As we passed her around I started to tell them about Project Velcro and Connor piped up with “Project Velcro? We’re raising money for that at school!” He told me that they’ve raised over $1000! So now he can go back to school and tell them he’s met a Project Velcro cat! 🙂
