The rescue lady brought Sterling over yesterday. I have him for two weeks, a temporary trial period to see how he does. Right now i have him in my small bedroom with his water, food, litter pan, etc. He seemed to do okay last night. But this morning, I went up and he had wedged his way into the armoire, which has very little in it (the room is my sisters and she is not going to move in with me until spring of 2009). I didn't see anything wrong with this, so I let him be... and was downstairs doing dishes when I heard a crash. I ran upstairs to find that he had knocked the middle shelf off in the armoire. He had fled underneath the night stand. I went over and was talking softly to him. I went to pet his head and he hissed. Is that a normal reaction to fear, or does it mean that he is going to be a mean cat?? I am sooo new to this... always had dogs, but the psyche of a cat just blows my mind....
