Mr. Care Bear
by Cat Crazy
Caesar Tiger Bear is a rare kind of kitty. Even female felines who are moms are not usually terribly maternal once they’ve started weaning their kittens. Most male cats I’ve known don’t have a “maternal” bone in their body. But the Big Guy is a big cuddler and is always trying to comfort any mammal that is distressed (even the silly human). With the Duo now here yowling up a storm pretty much every morning and evening starting at the 4s (4 am and 4 pm), the Emperor has been trying to go up to Pepe (the biggest yowler) and comfort him by licking and nuzzling him, and generally helping him settle in. However, Pepe wants nothing to do with any other cat. He wants his house and his previous human back and he’s not easily convinced that he should accept his new situation. Each time Caesar has walked up slowly and tried to comfort him, Pepe has hissed and walked away, which seems to be frustrating the Care Bear. Ah well, hopefully both C&P will come around and settle in with their new siblings. It’s only been 9 days so I guess the key is to just be patient a while longer.
