I don't think she's nervous... she just stretches out and lets me pet her. She loves lying next to me when I'm laying flat on the couch. She sometimes even proceeds to sleep! My fiance and I are completely in love with her and I think we are spoiling her a little. She has her own room at the covered back balcony which has really good ventilation and is a room with a view. She also has one of those cat condos as a scratching post and a fluffy cotton bed where she can sleep. And everyday we've been adding new toys for her.
When we are home, we let her out to play in the living room and the front balcony where she can watch birds flying in the air. Luckily the brick wall is high and thick so she can't jump over it. We live in a 3-storey walk up apartment and we are on the third floor. She loves playing with coloured yarn and that can keep her entertained for ages. She also likes rubbing against us when we are watching tv. I've even taught her a neat trick... when I bring her treats out, she would put both fore paws on my lap and eagerly await the smelly treat. Everytime she wants one, she will place her paws on my lap.
We are thinking of getting her a companion after she's spayed. We've already booked a vet appointment 2 months' in advance. She's currently 3 months old and my vet (who's great with cats) advised me that 5 - 7 months would be an ideal time to spay. I'm lucky to have this vet as he's a huge cat person. She was not even stressed when I took her in for a check-up because he handled her wonderfully.
I used to run a small guinea pig rescue and initially had 2 piggies who were waiting to be rehomed. Managed to find them a good family household few days back and gave them the habitats, supplies and books for basic piggy care. I personally screen and interview the potential owners each time. The piggies normally come to me when people tire of them or if they are mistreated at crummy petshops. It's really sad but better than just chucking them aside or leaving them at a petstore. I've been working together with my vet for 2 years on educating the public about piggies. But I don't think I'll be accepting any more (unless in dire circumstances) because I have to juggle work as well. I've always been interested in cats (partially due to my vet's influence) but never had them due to the pigs. Now, that my home is pig-free, I can afford to spend more time on cats
We've named our cat Pixie.
