This pic might have been better around Halloween. Georgie is now bold enough to roam the house, but not enough to come near me. He peeps around corners when he thinks I'm not looking.... then he looks away.

Well, it took a couple of days, but Georgie is getting bold now. He sneaks around the house when he thinks I'm not looking. No pics today because when he sees me he runs under the chair in my den! He & Lorenza were playing last night - not so much with each other as mutually with the same toy.

So, he's sneaking around the house now... checking things out. I found out today that he has incredibly long nails! He's getting caught in the carpet every time he walks across it. That's enough to make anyone cranky!
A while ago, he was crouched just outside the door of my room, watching & waiting. He's comfortable wandering around while the house is dark & quiet. Noises still scare him a bit, but he's still getting used to the place.
Just now, I hear him downstairs PLAYING with one of lovely Lorenza's toys! Yeah!!! He's a real sweetie. Dare I say a 'pussycat'? He lets me pick him up without any sort of complaint. He reaches out with his face to rub against my hand or face. He is SO-O-O-O soft. Clearly been well taken care of (except those nails!)

Here's Georgie! He's my new 'project' cat. A scared, lonely boy who's having a hard time adapting to life in a shelter. He was turned in by someone who claims to have found him but could not care for him. He's a gorgeous medium-hair orange cat, maybe 3-4 years old?
I brought him home last night, got him all settled into a quiet room and let him decide what to do next. He spent the night checking out the room and eating a little.
I needed a little dose of kitten-love before Thanksgiving and these two fit the bill! Their previous foster family had some travels and little Moss and Missy just need a couple of weeks to reach their 2 lb weight goal. They are completely adorable (as are all kittens), very quiet little kids.
I introduced them to my lovely Lorenza (she loves little kittens). Lorenza reached out to lick their faces, but got a little hiss for her kindness! Oh well, maybe later.
Wow, it's been a long couple of weeks. I went to the national No More Homeless Pets conference in Las Vegas, then trekked out to Utah for a week at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Both were totally amazing! Learned so much I think it's leaking out my ears right now. Will take a while to sort through everything. Meanwhile, I'm back to fostering here.
