He Gets Less "Moody" Every Day
We wanted to give a little update on Mr. Alastor Moody! It is absolutely incredible to see how much he has changed and how quickly he gained confidence. We call him Al for the most part and it suits him perfectly since he gets less "moody" every day. He has slowly made his way around the house, exploring each room as he gets more comfortable. This past week, he ventured to the other side of the house and found the big cat tree. He knows our morning routine and is always waiting in his “spot” where I feed him before I even get out there, it’s absolutely adorable. He frequently finds a toy laying around and does this adorable little bounce thing where he springs up off the ground out of nowhere and it absolutely kills us.
We have very, very slowly worked on bonding with him - sitting next to him while he eats, talking to him in the tree, and hanging out around him as much as we can. He is now leaning into our hands when we pet him and if we rub his belly he goes wild! If you stop petting him but he wants more love, he grabs your hand and brings it back over. It’s crazy to think that this is the same cat who hissed and swatted at us every time we got close the first few weeks.
He is such a joy to have in our home - thank you all for giving this sweet boy a second chance.
