Well, Poof still won't let me close the front door completely (and it's been a colder than usual winter - and he tends to show up before the sun goes up) - though one time I closed the door, he merely meowed (persistently) until I opened it & wouldn't come back in for a couple of days - and the last time, the door was not quite latched close and he managed to push his way out doors.

But he has let my fingers get close to his face. He's sniffed and licked them as well as grabbed them with his clawy paws.

The other day I watched TV for nearly an hour while Tache was on his living room chair (know in these parts as his throne) and Poof layed down on the carpet in the entrance for (nearly) the entire hour - with the door ajar, of course.

But he won't let me pet him - can't get my hand above him without him backing up.

Bryan took a bunch of photos on Sunday This is the best of 'em. Tache received a new toy, courtesy of one of Bryan's neighbour - a catnip ball covered in a handmade knitted octopus.

Please disregard the condition of the carpet.

And yesterday I took this picture of Tache and Poof at play on Tache's throne. Yes Poof has explored much of the living room - and a little bit of the kitchen (he apparently prefers Tache's food  >:( ).

Great photo! How's this for a caption: "Well, this IS the loveseat."

Or this:

OH THAT's a good one - especially from/for a brokie.  :D

Took a few dozen more pictures this morning - with new developments - however, I think I'll post (some of) them only tomorrow.  8)

It looks like Tache is determined to adopt Poof!

These are great photos. :)

Those are super cute pictures Roland! I especially like the one up above. He's a beautiful cat. Poof is too of course! 8) 8)

Poof ain't exactly jumping on my lap yet, but yesterday morning, he was sufficiently entertained by the dangling strap of my camera that he climbed on me - sort of ...

Here's a picture, highlighting the entertaining ball on a string, dangling from the door handle - as well as Poof pawing my hand.

Another picture of Poof reaching out for my hand, while (sorta) getting on my lap leg

You try and take good pictures from that close up, while one hand is otherwise occupied!  8)
