1. He is stinkin’ adorable. He’s crazy affectionate, follows me everywhere and won’t let me do anything without him. He lives for lap sits and chin scratches.
2. His nose is dark and dry - almost like a scab. Should I be worried? (I’m already worried about his skin and his teeth - when I take him to the vet in a couple of weeks for his booster shot I’m going to ask about those things… and his nose too.)
just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time
it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness
Yesterday I finally got to bring home the sweet little cat I met last weekend. He’s about 5 years old, but petite, and quite skinny from his time fending for himself on the streets. He had a microchip though, so he has had a family before.
He’s still very anxious and unsure - he’ll come out and be friendly and affectionate (he’s a total snuggler), then something will spook him and he’ll hide again. He’s hiding again right now after a traumatic shoe rack incident, but I have the feeling he’ll be back out wanting lap time soon.
