I have hopes that Neville and Portia will become friends. Right now, it’s only the Nevsky who seems to share my hope. Portia is starting to come into the bedroom now, climbing up to the ledge under the window to look out.
Last night, she moved from the ledge, across the desk to the bed, but decided the three boys there were too much of a crowd. After Po walked back to the window, Neville jumped onto a cat-tree near her, and stayed put through her growling and hissing. He’s received a good whapping from her more than once, but he doesn’t seem put off yet.
Yesterday, in the sitting room, I saw Nev ready to startle Portia when she walked by. I think he was hoping to play a game. I doubt that she would have called it that. Nonetheless, it was a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, like many such attempts, it depended on the unwitting victim fulfilling her role. The unwitting was unwilling. Nev eventually gave up.
Don’t worry, my boy. There’s always tomorrow.
John, since you are a human man, you probably do not understand theReplyDelete
roll of female. She is driven to act uninterested and even put off by
advances of the male. Just wait, she may show interest in Neville at
the oddest and most unexpected time. Just saying, a female gift.
Nevsky likes some sass!ReplyDelete
Aw, Neville, faint heart never won fair lady. :-)ReplyDelete
Right you are, Derry.Delete
Every female knows that one way to get a male's interest is to act disinterested. It's called "play hard to get."ReplyDelete

I would LOVE Neville and Portia to become furriends! I am very partial to Neville as everyone in the Blogosphere knows already! :-)ReplyDelete
Nev is such a charmer, I doubt any female could resist him for long.ReplyDelete
Oh they always find a way to work it out!ReplyDelete
Where there's a will there's a way...unless Portia decides against it. Good luck Neville!ReplyDelete
Nev is a good hearted fellow so we think there is promise in this moving forward. Hopefully not into a whap for our dear boyReplyDelete
