Last night, Pancake suffered a visitor to the house. Granted, the visitor didn’t stay long and mainly hung out in the basement (into which Pancake has yet to be allowed), but it still went well. Pancake just skittered away for the most part. I’m fine with the idea that Pancake might be scared and hide; I’m not asking for him to be social. I just want to make sure he doesn’t go into cat attack mode when a foreigner enters his territory.
In other good news, he’s now using the litter box on the 1st floor as well as the litter box in his “home base” upstairs. We want to eventually move him out of the guest room, because theoretically, we will have guests who want to stay there. 🙂 I don’t want to deprive him of it right away though. It’s his safety net. He goes there whenever he’s freaked out by something, be it a sound or (as happened last night) a visitor.
