We thought we would begin our Sunday post with a short update on Putih. After her very short outside adventure, we had made sure that she is not at the door when we are watering the plants. But of course she gets to walk about at other times when I am at home to supervise everyone. The boys have been very good at their promise of leaving her alone and would only look at her from where they were, which is always away from the door. Tanaka especially has been very restrained and merely hissed at her a little when she tried to enter the bedroom when he was at the door. Bujang of course has been very good and had ignored her movements. He was not offended when she hissed at him while he was resting on the shelves or near the window. He merely ignored her and continued to nap. She has begun to explore the house again and even went into the other litter boxes although she had used any of them. She had only commandeered the one in the kitchen which no other kitty uses anymore. She has a litter bin in her cage but prefers the one in the kitchen. There has been no more screaming or chasing but maybe that is because I made sure the boys are safely away from the door. Akira has seen her walking about but I made sure that she is safely in the cat hammock or sitting at the cat gym before I let Putih out. I thought it better that they get used to seeing her walking about and she sees that they mean her no harm before I let them mingle more. This has been her second month in the house. I heard that it takes at least 8 months for a cat to get used to another living space!
