Happy New Year

Hi everyone. Happy New Year!

This is Cody. As many of you know, I don't like people touching me...well I should say I didn't like people touching me, because after almost 12 years of running away whenever anyone got close to me, I finally started to let my mom sort of touch me while I was getting treats. I would let her give me pets just for a couple of minutes while I ate my treats. But, guesses what? I finally decided that the big hand wasn't going to do anything mean to me, and I am now letting Mom pet me for long periods of time without her getting out the treats. I hate to say it, but I think I really sort of like it. I purr and rub all over her and the table while she pets me. If I am feeling up to it, she will pet me for quite a while (like 15-20 minutes). Mom says her only complaint is that I won't come out from under the table, so she has to stretch her arm at an odd angle in order to reach me, but she does it for as long as I want. I've even been meowing at her to get her to give me pets. I will sometimes come to the other side of her chair and meow at her, and I've touched her hand a couple of times, so Mom is hoping I'll get comfortable enough to sit near her one day. She has said that I've given her more than she thought possible when I decided I liked pets, so she's not going to push her luck. Who knows thought...i never knew I was going to like pets as much as I do. I just might decide I like sitting near her too.

In other news, I think Gracie might like me a little bit. She's come up to me a couple of times and touched noses with me. I still don't trust her, but she seems to be listening when Mom tells her to be nice whenever she comes close to me. We hope everyone has a wonderful new year.

Hi Cody and a Happy New Year. I have found the best way to control a human is to sit on them. Also they are warm in winter if you feel a bit chilly.
A good brush of your furs with a soft brush will also help with hairballs.
