My human and I were doing a photo session out back and we had just finished up. But before we could just relax and hang out for a while, my human saw something. We had a visitor!
It’s the peach kitten that was TNR’d over the summer! He’s almost full grown now. I actually know him a little, through the glass doors on the back patio. He stops by to look at me sometimes. My human has caught him doing that. And whenever it happens, she starts petting me to show him how awesome it is to be an inside, tame kitty. Once, she grabbed one of my cat toys (like the one you saw yesterday) and started playing with me! He wasn’t sure what to do. It was like he wanted to play but was confused and a little nervous.
I didn’t see him at first because he was behind me. But finally I turned around to see what my human was staring at. I couldn’t believe my eyes! He may have watched us before when we were outside, but this was the first time he let us see him.
He didn’t seem like he was anxious to run off. And my human didn’t try to come any closer to him because she didn’t want to scare him. I was totally ready to go up to him, but my human wouldn’t let me.
In fact, my human had me walk a few steps farther away from him.
She had me do some tricks and gave me a few treats. She tried throwing some treats at the peach kitty, but they were too small for him to find. After a few minutes, she wanted to go back inside, so she picked me up and went back up the stairs. The peach kitty turned around and left too, but he trotted. He didn’t run with his belly close to the ground like a lot of ferals might.
In case you are wondering, he’s the only one who behaves like this. The other two kittens and the mom keep away and run if my human takes the slightest step in their direction.
