Kato & Sasha, Entry for June 14, 2008
Kato was under the bed when I arrived and as soon as I reached out for his he hurried under the other bed:) On my next visit if he creeps out from under the bed, I will close the other bedroom door so he can remain out and see how much fun Sash and I are having. After a minute of sniffing, Sasha took to me right away and never left my presence. We played with the wands. I introduced her to a new toy called a cat dancer which she enjoyed. She chased some kibble and she followed me around the house on my search for Kato. At times she would take a break and settle on the rocker next to the sofa where I was sitting. I spent some time laying on the floor next to the bed talking softly to Kato. I found the goat cheese but it was covered with green fur and I wasn't sure it was still fresh so passed on that. I carried around a slice of American cheese but Kato had succeeded in finding a good hiding place. I figure, once I have eliminated the under bed situation and Kato is in a position to see the interaction between Sasha and myself and get a whiff of the cheese, he might be more apt to overcome his shyness and join in on the fun. Will keep you posted on my progress.
