NALA, Entry for April 28, 2007
Well, this is my last visit with Nala. I will miss her. Although we got off to a rough start, she has made up for it. We had a nice session on the living room rug today as we have had over the past few days. She just rolls and scoots and purrs and vigorously accepts her scratchies on the rug. I think that she is less intimidated by me as a stranger because she has gotten to know me and I am less intimidating because I am on the floor with her and not standing over her. This way she feels in control and dominate in HER environment. She was eager to have her food presented to her and she appreciates me for doing it. She no longer feels that I am competing for HER food and allows me to be in her presence when she eats and to bring the water dish and sit it down next to the bowl in which she is eating. We have come a long way together and I am honored by her trust.
