Harry, Entry for June 1, 2008
Harry was doing well today. When I arrived, Harry was lounging on the floor in front of the sofa. I checked out the kitchen and got a brush for Harry, went to the living room and sat down in the chair. I held up the brush and made brushing movements so that Harry could see. He hadn't seen me for a while and I wanted Harry to come to me for some scrarchies and brushing. After a few minutes of cat baby talk and making brushing movements Harry got up and sauntered over to the chair. He was amply rewarded as I sat down on the floor next to him and began to give him scratchies and brush him. He accepted that for a while and then went over to check on his food. I hadn't gotten to that yet, I noticed that he had ample dry food left in his bowl, however since this was my first visit, I deemed it to be Tuna day and opened a can of tuna and sat the bowl down next to his water dish. Harry was happy and munched on that for a while and returned to the living room rug. We had another session with scratchies and brushing on the rug until Harry moved over to the sofa. Harry was a little distant today. I believe that he wasn't missing his mom enough to be as forthcoming with me. In the end, I kept him company in the living room and we watched a little TV. I gave him a few more scratchies and told him that I would be back tomorrow.
