Lilo actually greeted me with a headbutt to my hand today. And then she leaned into a nice session of ear and chin rubs. Of course after I petted her for a while, she remembered she's miffed and gave a low growl, hissed and stalked away... LOL! (I have seen this before, many times... it always cracks me up. Kind of a delayed, "Hey, wait a minute, I'm mad at you!") Not to worry... a little progress each day and it'll be lovin' time before you know it.
Lilo chowed down today after just picking yesterday. She's eating the dry food but ignoring the wet. (Thank you to Lilo's beansis, Cheryl, for the water tower - it's working out well and it's nice she has something familiar.)
On the other side of the house, I'm getting the impression the longer term residents are none too pleased about my divided attention, but they'll get over it, too. They always do - it's just the first week or so and then everybody settles down. Maintaining the irritation long term takes too much energy, I think!
