I have always loved when my cats have done the sideways dance. So cute. They have become domestic, but their wild side shows through. Cats are awesome.I think Miss Phoenix is losing her fear of the boys.
I got a screen shot of her going up to the doorway and doing the sideways, crablike stance with the arched back that say:' I'm a Big, Bad Kitty."
I think Missy P will end up the Queen. Too cute. Thanks for sharing the transition of it all. Also, glad to hear you are beating the cancer. You go, spr!YUGER Phoenix nooz...!!!
Late this morning I was doing kitty janitor stuff. Decided to close the Teia Gate in the hall and open the screen closing off the Safe Haven.
It took about 10 minutes, and Missy P came into the hall. Both Cooper and Buff were well away near the head of the stairs. Phoenix went up the the hall screen and sat looking at Cooper for about 6 minutes.
THEN, she came into the master bedroom. She sniffigated around for the better part of 10 - 12 minutes before scampering back across the hall to the safe haven.
I only got one picture as I did not want to move too much and spook her before she satisfied her curiosity.

Mistress Phoenix endured pretty calmly a chaperoned visit from Cooper a little bit ago.
She just watched from the foot of the bed closest to the door as he entered the closet. Cooper spent a few minutes sniffigating her sleeping spot. When he emerged, did not try to get too close. By then she had moved to being beside her kitty bush that is under one of the windows.
She hissed a little, and growled when he tried to get closer than 5 feet. She made no move to hide, unlike the last 3 Cooper visits.
After a few minutes of that, shooed Cooper out and fastened her screen closed.
