Y’all have asked how Dennis is doing now that he’s a permanent resident, and he is doing great. He and Jake are thick as thieves, and he and Stefan play together a lot, too. He’s got his routine down pat – he knows snackin’ time, he knows standing still to have his collar put on, he knows running around the back yard, and he knows coming inside at bedtime when I call for them. His collar (which works with the invisible fence around the back yard) keeps him from roaming, and he spends as much time inside as out in the back yard during the day.
I was upstairs one morning, giving the kittens and Angelo fresh catnip. All of a sudden, we heard the screech of a very angry girlcat.
I went downstairs to see what was going on, and found…
I kind of hope he wears Stinkerbelle down. I think she could use a friend other than Tommy!
So in summation: Dennis is doing great. He and the other permanent residents adjusted to each other very smoothly (given the slow introduction, that’s not surprising), and he’s turned out to be a very sweet, very well-adjusted boy and in fact I can lean down and pick him up without him skittering away the way he used to. He’s got the routine down pat, and he’s the first one to let me know that it’s snackin’ time RIGHT NOW LADY, which the other permanent residents appreciate.
