Linxx the Cat

This is Linxx, my cat. I'm posting this picture of her because the cutest thing happened today. Now first some background. Linxx is not exactly the most social cat. Snob describes her well. Everything is on HER terms and since I got a dog, like 7 years ago or so, she's been bitter. She tries to covet the water bowl by dragging it across the floor and doesn't really show up much unless it's a rare occasion or she needs food or water. This morning I had Luke sitting on the floor in our bedroom while I fed Taylor. Linxx thinks our bedroom is her room so she's mostly there..more specifically in my closet, usually sunbathing. She came out of hiding and started circling Luke. Meowing at him. Luke was giggling, reaching out for her and LOVING it. It was so darn cute. Now this cat really doesn't like to be touched unless it's on her terms. She was rubbing up against his hands and he was pulling her ears and hair and she was patient and curious. She was sniffing his nose and Luke was giggling. She was walking circles around him and he couldn't see her when she was behind his back and as soon as she came around he'd giggle like they were playing peek-a-boo. Wish I had that on video. Taylor wouldn't eat because she was too nosey watching the interaction and trying to grab at Linxx as she walked past. lol They are so curious. It's cute.

PS. Linxx is on the toilet here because she was stalking me while I got ready in the morning because her food bowl was almost empty. A travesty. lol

That is very cute and funny Robin, but is your cat toilet trained, I mean literally? Why is it on the toilet:)

Hi Robin, I read this and chuckled at how cute it must have been. I wish too, that you had it on video, but I can picture it. I never thought our dog Cassie would have warmed up to Kaia the way she did. Isn't it amazing?!!! Love you guys, Aunt Carolyn
