Noah is a fun cat. He’s young, so everything is an adventure to him. I have been letting him out of the parlour so that he can explore and meet the perma-cats. He’s curious about everything. I’ll let the photographs explain his first day out, beginning with his emergence from the parlour and surveillance of the corridor beyond.
Then, Josie sees the newcomer for the first time.
Noah smells the fresh air carried by the breeze coming through the front screen door.
This is just about what Tucker sees of the new boy.
Then Noah finds a Kick-a-roo.
And then starts climbing.
Here he is either examining my compact disc collection or admiring himself in the reflection from the glass.
Noah is pulling a Tucker and observing Josie.
Then he wanders farther afield. First the kitchen…
…and then downstairs to the library.
There, he seems to be choosing some reading material for when he is once again locked up in the parlour.
Noah’s relations with the perma-cats are rocky at the moment. He has chased several of them up the stairs from the basement. I think this is no more than the habit that Cammie had: a cat noticed Cammie following, and then broke into a run, whereupon the princess did the same and it ended in a chase.
However, Noah is a bit rougher than Cammie. He is not yet a year old and is rambunctious. He enjoys his play-time and has to learn that not everyone plays with the same intensity. He and Cammie have developed a bit of friction, and need to work on their compatibility skills. In the photograph below, the princess most certainly is not aware that our guest is near her.
Noah is a loveable boy who wants more than anything to be out and about in a home, exploring and enjoying attention. He would like very much not to be locked up, and that will come in time at my house, but for now, things will have to move at a pace that is more sedate than he would like. Youngsters are always in a hurry.
