Tuxie is finally inside!! :)

The feral I've been feeding for the past year or so finally successfully trapped and inside since Sunday eve. He adjusted quite nicely. No swats (he scratched me when he was outside as late as last week). Just purrs, head butts, love bites. Very cool, smart and loving cat.

Two days in his isolation room, he hid under the couch- scared. He had one accident on towel I purposely put on floor. He finally found the litter box yesterday after I put a little soil from outside and put it where the towel was. No more accidents.

He loves to chase treats and eating wet food! He still skittish with sudden movements and loud noises though.

The soft classical music def helps to calm him down. Claire de Lune and Moonlight Sonata and happy airy string instruments play all day.

Overall he is a happy kitty. So welcome Tuxie!

Thank you, he IS a handsome boy! I read that kittens who survived outdoor into adulthood are usually among the healthiest and smartest (survival of the fittest). Tuxie is def smart. As for health he seems healthy, but will have a vet check in a few weeks. He looks relieved to be indoor now.

Here is another pose. He placed his butt on my toes earlier too. Too bad I could not get the picture. Lol.

Congratulations for both of you. Tuxie fits him, he is handsome. Just curious, is he trying to get out?

Not at all. Had the door to outside open but with the screen door locked. He is not even interested to see outside. Maybe he is still shocked. We'll see.

That is awesome! He is so handsome! I love his big eyes. You will probably have to chase him with a stick to make him go outside know that he knows the good life inside.
He looks so happy.

OMG he's so adorable!!! As far as not wanting to go outside, that happened to the first cat I adopted who was found by a rescue organization as a stray and I made him an indoor cat. Whenever I opened the door to outside to go out, he would run the other way. I think he was petrified he was going to be abandoned out there again.

Oh I can't pick him up and he doesn't want to go on my lap. One step at a time.
