I just had the first real petting session with the new cat. He’s still scared to high heavens of me, but he can’t resist coming near me when I have food and THEN he can’t resist how good the petting feels. He leans into it, and then meows, and runs away, comes back, repeat.
The whole magic vanishes when the food is gone and he retreats into one of his hiding spots.
This isn’t a cat blog now guys. It’s a former feral cat blog. It’s much different.
