I showed Nice Guy and Kyoko a drawing I made a while back…
I’d say it resembles him, but then again a cat has a high opinion of their own beauty which is reflected not by appearance but from within.
Then there was the drawing I showed Kyoko… (which was only a mild resemblance.)
I think I drew this cat in such a way because Kyoko has a habit of becoming very startled when there is a loud sound or the dreaded plastic bag crinkle. He doesn’t delay to LEAP out of your lap or scurry out of your arms, sometimes using claws. Poor timid boy… If only I could explain that the bag isn’t his enemy.
One lovely day while Kyoko and I were out on a walk we came across another cat… A Stranger.
Kyoko’s impression about the cat: “He is shady looking, I don’t trust him.”
He lets loose a ferocious hiss and then whines when I try to comfort and assure him that the cat is nice.
Maybe he became confused about who the cat was, was this NICE Guy? No… she says hes nice, but he doesn’t look OR smell like Mr. Nice Guy. .
NOTE: The cats didn’t fight, the black cat (named Beamer) seemed really nice and kept a good distance away from him. The only way this could have turned into a fight is if Kyoko attacked first out of fear… Which is why i was there to make sure he yielded.
I make sure to accompany Kyoko outside because of an injury he came home with one time that required a drain tube and many stitches. I know hes scared because of that injury, I just really don’t think another cat did it. We lived next to a wildlife area so it could have been anything that attacked him.
I can tell he is comforted by my being there with him and since this video was filmed in 2012 hes gotten to be more confident and less afraid when going outside.
