Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
It was only a few weeks ago that I was complaining that Kalista wasn’t bonding with me as fast as my partner, and while it’s still true that we find her sleeping in his office more frequently in mine… it seems she’s taken more and more of a liking to me.
Kalista still spends a lot of time with my partner, finding small crevices behind him to sleep and always making sure to have as much of her body against him as possible. She treats my partner similar to the way that Beau treats me. The main difference is, I always seek affection which is something Beau is cool with and Kalista is not.
My partner is the pet parent who tends to ignore the cats and I’ll find them on his lap every so often taking a snooze. He’s completely cool with that (which is probably the wiser thing to do.) I’m the pet parent who grabs Beau and brings him to bed to cuddle whenever I want, or I put him on my lap when I’m working. He doesn’t mind. My partner likes to call Beau “the teddy bear” for that reason. Beau usually comes up to you when he wants cuddles, and even when he doesn’t want them… if you grab him… he’ll take them!
So, I’ve been ignoring Kalista more. Mostly because I’ve gotten frustrated with the fact that I can’t pick her up the way that I can pick up Beau, but it seems to be doing the trick.
She’s been following me around the house more often and has been scenting my legs anytime I’m around. Guess Kalista’s just a typical teenage girl, trying to get what she can’t have! I joke!
I’m glad that I’m having some breakthroughs with this munchkin, because who wouldn’t want to be on her good side! Look at that adorable face. <3
