I love it when the weather is good and I have time to sit with the kitties. They get to eat while I sit watching them and talking to them. It is very peaceful way back between the two buildings on the weekends - most of the time.
Today Ollie, Jag, Spirit and Doodle were all there immediately after I arrived. I didn't see Piccolo but used my clicker to let him know I had food. A few minutes later he arrived. Because I wasn't in a hurry today I decided to sit just out of sight from Piccolo in the hopes that he would come out to eat while I was close by. And he did after about 15 or 20 minutes.
I had bowls placed in different spots but what surprised me is he chose to eat from the bowl closest to me because it had the dry food. I could have leaned forward and almost touched Piccolo while he ate he was so close.
I sat quietly while he ate occasionally saying a few words. He ate until his tummy was full then saundered off through the hole in the wall and back into the lumberyard.
I feel I made a wee bit of progress with him today by letting him know he could trust me and I think he is beginning to. The entire time he was eating he only glanced at me a few times.
This Wednesday I will be trying to trap Piccolo so that he can go in to be neutered. I just hope he will be there. Shhhhhh.....don't tell him.
Still no signs of either Jazz or Que at the other location.
