my relationship with cats.
I have recently decided I would like a cat. At my last job we had a store cat named Bernie. He was really cool and sparked my interest in cats. He was atleast 15 yrs old when I started working there but he still had sum energy left. I used to toss treats on the ground and he would chase them. He would alwyas jump on computer desk and sleep right on the keyboard so you would pet him, and he even liked a good chase. He was fun cat.
In december, I moved in with my gf, and her cat moved in with us. In a span maybe 4 weeks, the cat moved from my gfs mom house in canada, down to my gf grandparents house in california, and then to our new apt just a few minutes away. At first she was rly scared and stayed mostly under the bed, ventuirng out to eat,litter, or at night when we got in bed. She tended to be very shy/anxoius/afriad around me so I tried to give her space. This is my first time living with a cat (Connie), and I have since made some mistaks and have learned from them. Bernie used to like a good chase, connie does not, she was scared of me for another week or so after that she relaxed again and wud sit on my lap almost everyday. One day I picked her up and was taking her into other room whne she started smelling my nose, then she bit it, I dropped her yelled no and stomped once to scare her. She was scared of again for a week or so. Then she was comfortable again, she bit my nose one more time, now my nose stays far away from her face. Recently though she has become scared of me again and I'm not sure why. She doesn't like to play, sdhe doesn't like to pet much, she seems to enjoy catnip,catnaps,staring out windowm and sleeping in the closet. I now want a second cat for myself because I would like the company, and maybe it ncould help connie relax around me and house guest. Any thoughts?
