GRETCHEN, Entry for November 23, 2007
As soon as I opened up the door Gretchen was heading down the hall. I made my way to the treats in short order and threw a few her direction which she cased after. I got the litter done while she was munching away and by that time she was heading back towards me again...slightly growling...so I threw a couple more treats into the livingroom...and quickly filled her food bowl and took care of her water. She sat down in the hallway and stared at me a bit and I talk to her a little - she didn't move toward me or growl anymore, but I wasn't directly facing her either, I made sure to not face her head on. I bent down and chit chatted from about 5 feet away and she made no move. As soon as you turn to face her though, the growling starts. Laurie had given me a few tips on Gretchen in advance so I was glad to know about her LOVE of treats:) All in all, your little tiger seems to be doing just fine and wasn't quite as ferocious as I had anticipated. We'll see how it goes tomorrow!
