So we are attempting a slow transition.
From Funnyface the outdoor cat
|I'll have what he's having|
Food was a major motivator to get him through the front door. Inside, with all the unfamiliar noises and smells, can be a scary place and he was initially reluctant to venture indoors. It's true there are unfamiliar dangers lurking around every corner.
Funnyface is not the only one struggling with this transition. Gino doesn't like sharing his space but we're all learning. Even I have some issues to work through. Training a feral cat can be frustrating at times - Stay off the kitchen counters! Were you raised in a barn?!
But a little catnip helps to ease the tension (I prefer wine myself)
And things are progressing slowly but surely. The ultimate deciding factor in our favor appears to be radiators.
Nothing beats snuggling up to a heater on a cold winter night.
