I thought you’d like to see some photos of Shackleton, adopted in 2012.
He is now a constant lap sitter and snuggler. He’s still shy of new people and loud noises but enjoys petting by quiet visitors. He loves having his belly rubbed and he and Oliver will race around the house ( how can cat paws make such a racket?) and groom each other. Smokey (AKA Shackleton) would like more snuggle time with Oliver but the latter usually rolls his eyes and jumps down. Which means more lap cat time for me!
Here’s Smokey looking charming with his new Christmas ‘Cat Charmer’ and a photo of Oliver and Smokey in the sun house:
