Around a year ago, Mars came inside for the first time in months after being left behind. She was so happy and surprised to find a human back in the house after so long. She still wakes me up some nights plaintively meowing loudly, if we haven’t been cuddling, just to make sure I’m still here.
This is where Mars would hang out on rainy and cold days, before she was willing to come inside. I set up a banana box with a blanket so she’d have some place comfy to hang out.
This is cat territory. Three of the five library cats, and two of three house cats hanging out just now. In order from left to right are Muninn, Mars, Huginn, Ereshkigal, and Bee.
Mars started to hang out in the living room. She really doesn’t like other cats getting too close, and growls if they do. But, she really likes being inside if she’s got a little space.
