I had a friend drop by the house yesterday and I was really interested to see how Flossy would interact with her. Sometimes I wonder if all the leaps and bounds Baby Girl has made, is only a result of spending so much time with us, and so litte with outsiders (if I can use that term)..........you see it all the time, animals that become very comfortable, trusting, and even affectionate with their handlers, but not so much so (or even sometimes the complete opposite), with people that they are meeting just for the first time.
Well the proof is in the pudding as they say and boy did Flossy set any lingering doubts or worries I might have, aside!! She loved "M" - I mean she was so super, duper affectionate that my friend said she'd adopt her in a moment if her husband would let her have a 2nd kitty (do you hear that hubby!). Flossy was rubbing up against her, flopping from side to side, nuzzling her nose into my friend's hand and even at one point when my friend tried to pay attention to Silly, actually pushed herself between them so that my friend would continue to pat and adore her. Flossy was purring so hard that we actually started to laugh at just how determined she was to soak up every last ounce of love.
Here she is, nestled onto my lap - her favourite spot now; and if it can't be mine, it's hubby's.............oh yes when it comes to attention and affection she's forgotten all about being shy.
