Lucy is getting curious about laps, but she seems perplexed by the furniture sometimes. She recently came up on the couch and half sat on the arm and part of my leg.
She only stayed a couple of minutes. She's sat on Jim's lap for about 10 minutes once.
Bit by bit, she'll figure it out. .
Lucy: Is this how you do that lap thing? Asking for a friend. . .
A household update:
Benny still dislikes Lucy and hisses her away. He has claimed the office as his space, and asks to be fed there. If I pick him up and put him in one of our laps, he's as happy as can be. Our hope is that, in time, Lucy will learn to ignore him. Or, they will co-exist.
Ringo is still curious about her, though she can be loud (i.e., screams) when she initiates play, and that startles him. I think Lucy wants to play with Ringo, but he isn't ready just yet. They have "nose kissed" several times, though. They can be in the same room together, and if I'm playing with her, he'll be nearby, sometimes joining in on the sidelines.
Now Sadie may be staying in the bedroom for a long time. I've been trying very small amounts of exposure to Lucy. For instance, opening the door slightly and letting Lucy peek in for a few seconds (with them a distance apart). Lucy is curious, but Sadie goes into a hissing frenzy and stays upset for a while. I am spacing these exposures apart, to not stress Sadie out, but to keep reminding her that this new cat exists and isn't going away.
