This could be a big deal

So recently Snowdrop came in one morning, sniffed around the pillow where Wisp usually sits ——and then settled on the couch for petting. After a few minutes he was relaxed enough I decided to chance closing the door to the deck. Usually that panics him into leaving but it was cold and I could only endure it for so long.

For the first time he was completely unfazed by me shutting him in. I came back to the couch and petted him for several minutes before he got up and padded to the door. I let him go.

It hasn’t happened since but it’s potentially a breakthrough. It’ll be much easier to pet him and care for him if we can have a door closed against inclement weather. Perhaps TYG will get her wish and have him curled up in her lap sooner than we expected.

  1. Today, though, no such luck, though he didn’t freak out as much as he used to when we closed the door. Baby steps.
