Caturday 90

Posted on Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

Dave!Jake and Jenny are scared of most everything, with people being number one on the list. It takes them hours before they'll even show themselves when other people are in the house. Days before they'll come close. Minimum a week before anybody new will be able to touch them. I keep hoping that having a steady stream of houseguests will encourage them to be less afraid, but it never happens.

But people aren't the only thing.

Jenny is afraid of movement. Unless I'm moving slowly, any step in her direction sends her running. It has to be her idea to approach me.

That's not Jake at all. Jake will sit right in my path and not budge unless I shoo him out of the way or trip over him.

What Jake is terrified of is... aluminum foil.

If I have a can of cat food that needs to be refrigerated and the lid is in the wash, I have to wait for Jake to finish eating before I grab the box of foil. Just opening the cupboard where the box is stored will make him nervous. If I pull out the box, he will run away. I have to go to the garage to tear off a sheet, because he will run away from that noise no matter where he is.

I'm guessing it's sound-related, because he's never had a box accidentally fall on him or anything like that. He's too busy laying around being handsome to be in that kind of danger...

Jake's Handsome Face

Well... most of the time he's laying around. There are times he runs around like he's on fire though.

When Jake or Jenny is in a hurry, they will charge at the cat door at top speed and smash through it into the catio without hesitation. But when they're not in a hurry, Jake struggles with how to best squeeze past the flap. Jenny is the same. Except Jenny with try to push aside the flap with her paw, where Jake will kind of wedge his face along the side and push on it with his cheek.

I guess the cat door is only a struggle when they have to stop and think about it.

Except right now Jenny thinks it's time for dinner...

Jenny Waiting

And so off I go...
