Introducing Taylor

Percy keeping watch.

PERCY:  What was in that box Jan and Mr. Doug double-timed into the bedroom Friday morning and brought back empty?

SAM:  I don't know.  It was a rapid box in the front door into the bedroom, box out of bedroom, bedroom door closed/gated/blocked, box out the front door, and then Jan went off with Mr. Doug.

CYNDI:  Do you think Jan has read her calendar and is buying our Christmas presents early?

MERCI:  You're joking, right?  Jan always says she doesn't have any money to buy us Christmas presents.

RUSTY:  So what was in the big box?  Oh, maybe she got us some new beds.  No, she wouldn't need to lock them in the bedroom.


PERCY:  Well, I got a whiff of something unexpected so I'll just take a quick bath for when Jan opens the door and introduces us.


BUDDY:  I think it's going to be a while before Jan introduces us.  This is Taylor.  Her human mom asked if Taylor could come spend the winter with us because she's not physically able to take care of her right now.  As you can see, Taylor is a bit shy.  She seems to think if Jan can't see her head she's invisible.

MARCUS:  How come you got to sleep in the bedroom Friday and Saturday nights while the rest of us were locked out?

BUDDY:  I guess I'm just better behaved than the rest of you.

MICAH:  Be honest.  You would have howled all night if Jan had closed the door in your face.   


CYNDI:  Taylor has been hiding under the bed for two days.  As you can see, Jan long ago tore out the bottom of the box springs because a couple of us kitties have pulled similar stunts in the past.

MERCI:  Jan invited me into the bedroom Saturday morning to find out where Taylor was hiding.  I said she's under the bed, so Jan had fun getting down on the floor to take some photos.  This is why she couldn't find Taylor.  Taylor was standing, almost invisible, on a storage box - small feet with no body or head.  Jan had to lie on the floor, prop a flash light on the box, set the camera on the floor and tilt it up to get this shot.

SAM:  Taylor didn't eat or drink anything Friday, but Saturday morning, she ate a big spoonful of canned food Jan left under the bed for her. And after Jan downloaded and prepared the photos for today's post, she checked on Taylor and Taylor ate some kibble, sniffed Jan's hand and purred.  She's back into shy mode again, so progress will be slow but at least the eating issue is resolving. 

Percy guarding door.

MARCUS:  Percy, you watched that door all day Friday, even sneaked into the room once before being evicted.  Why?

PERCY:  Because I'm top cat and I want to check her out before she gets any ideas.


  1. I'm so glad your human stepped up to take care of Taylor! I bet she is scared and confused, and she probably just wonders what happened to her human. I know she will be all right, given some time.

  2. Tell Jan we said thanks for helping dear Taylor, she will relax and adjust before too long.

  3. It is very good hearted of Jan to take care of Taylor. I hope she soon settles in.
