Re: Business cats
My vet office has Cornflake, a large red/white male DLH and Trix, a Tortie-tripod DSH female.
We stopped at an auction-house and looked around. When I saw the meezer-mix kitty, I sat on a couch and let her snuggle in my lap while my husband cruised their warehouse.
My husband also used to take Reilly to work with him every day. The first week, Rei stayed at the plant, but on Friday, he came home with my husband and I *freaked* because he just brought him in the house and turned him loose, no intro-period!
...the most amazing thing happened ...
Reilly and our resident cats blended together with absolutely NO issues at all. Not even hissing. It was like he had always belonged. So every morning, Hubby would open the door and Rei would run to his truck and wait for the door to open. He'd ride on my husband's shoulders and "comment" on the traffic they saw. When they would come home, Rei would run from the truck to the front door. He knew the routine! After that first week, Rei kept my husband's work schedule; going in with him and coming home with him every day. When contractors came, he couldn't bring Rei because he was afraid one of the contractors would leave a door open and he'd lose Rei at the landfill (methane gas powered power plant). Poor Rei, he'd run from window-to-window, following my husbands progress from the front door to the side of the house where we parked and would cry and try to tell him he was forgetting to take Rei with him! So, since he couldn't go to work any more, we'd take him for a drive around town a few times a week. He really thought he was Hot Stuff to be a cruising cat. We even took him along on some of our car-club cruises that remained local.
