Since being away for 5 days and now being home for 6, Norah has been struggling to get better but also to fit back in where she was before with the other cats. Especially Riley. For anyone who has cats you know they can be very weird about a cat being away - or moving into a new home, all of a sudden they act like they have never seen each other before. They hiss and spit and bristle when one gets close to another.
Riley and Norah have always been cuddle buddies. But since Norah has been home Riley hasn't wanted anything to do with her. She would try to come close and he would hiss and even swatted at her once. Poor Norah was trying to recover from being so sick, and had to deal with this rejection as well. Today, FINALLY, Riley let her lay with him and even bathed and groomed her a bit.
It's a start.
I think we could all use a bit of cuddling right now.
