I am so excited! The door to Kitty Valhalla now stands open! The Guardians have decided it is time for Thomas to have the run of the entire house. I can’t believe the day is finally here!
So far, Thomas has been a little bit hesitant to come out and explore. Just as the Guardians have hoped, Kitty Valhalla is now Thomas’s safey-safe, and anytime he feels threatened he retreats quickly up the stairs. But he did make the rounds downstairs last night under cover of darkness. He sat on the big cat tree in the front window and he also discovered our large basket of toys in the living room. This morning the Guardians found toys strewn all over the place. Best of all, Brother Henry has taken it upon himself to make Thomas feel welcome. He even let Thomas nap with him on the Sacred White Cloud of Eternal Comfiness yesterday! The Guardians tried to get a photo, but Thomas jumped up and sat next to the cloud before they could get the shot.
So I’m happy to report that the integration of Thomas into The Cult of Otis is going great! Brother Oliver hasn’t even complained yet which is a minor miracle in and of itself. I’m sure Thomas will continue to blossom now that he has a whole new world to explore. Unlike the world he was forced to live in for the first year of his life, this new world is filled only with safe enrichment, love and caring. By the end of his second year, he is going to be a whole new kitty.
So Sayeth Otis
