Sneaky

Some of you might remember me telling you that my two white kitties are very skittish. They are extremely nervous even around me a lot of the time and I have been owned by them for 10 years now! It look weeks and several attempts to catch them at my old house and get them moved here, and it's been several more months for them to build up the confidence to start exploring the whole place here and not just hide out in the bedroom.

So imagine my surprise when I was sat at the computer last weekend minding my own business only to turn round and find that Hugo had snuck himself out of the open window and was sat in the breeze staring back in at me!Since taking this picture he has learnt to use the cat flap and is now regularly seen disappearing outside. He never stays out for long though he's just too scared of ... well pretty much everything. I'm really pleased that he is making this progress though and am hoping that he will start gaining extra confidence in his old age, and who knows maybe he'll even encourage Hector to go out with him.

Hello Angela! Nice to learn about your cats. Mine was also very scared in the beginning of her life and she met some difficulties. Now she enjoyes hunting outside and sleeping in my bed...but still she is scared about other people. Only few people have touched her.
Your rainbow project is going to be interesting!
Have a lovely weekend! Teje
