Re: Re: Christmas in March, vole damage

The Fab 4 do not like Slugger.  He tries to get along, but also I think he
secretly enjoys taunting them by simply being there -smack in the middle of
the hallway, at the entrance from outside, in the doorway to the room I'm
in, on the ottoman next to my chair.  Jack growls incessantly at the sight
of him; Seamus cries unnervingly and unendingly; Mick walks in extreme slow
motion past him;  Braveheart is simply wary - but BH is wary of everything.

I have to say that my attitude toward Slugger alternates between finding him
sweet and annoying.  Since he was the neighborhood bully, a roving tomcat
that more or less ruled his domain and allowed no human near him (that I was
aware of), it has come as quite a surprise that, now healed, this cat won't
go away.  He prefers to stay in the house, on  my lap or at my side when
possible.  He follows me from room to room.  He prefers the litterbox to the
out of doors.  He wants attention.  I'm used to cats that take care of each
other with, of course, a daily dose or two of affection from me, but not
this constant need.  His presence also tends to keep the others at bay.
With the better weather coming on, however, I hope he'll tire of the novelty
of me.
