Now, his normal routine is to wait until the lights are off and then he will jump up on the bed for some scritches...he seems to like them the best right between the ears.
But last night he tried something new. Mom was laying in bed reading a book when he jumped up to look around. She saw him out of the corner of one eye and ignored him. He came up and stood on her and looked at her over the book. She glanced up and said "hi junior" and went back to reading. He actually stuck around for a few minutes - until Maestro hacked up in the other room and mom got up to clean. But mom said it is progress and she is willing to take it.
While the boy is still listed on Petfinder, she is coming to terms with the fact that he may be staying. It is tough to place the average cat no less the semi-feral ones. Besides, if someone really wanted him, she would have to figure out how to catch him and get him in a PTU to take him somewhere....and might need a blood transfusion after that event. :)
So, keep thinking about us and the Junior man. He is getting bigger and has at least stopped stalking Mozart (for which Mo is eternally grateful). Mom said she has to have the camera on hand one night when she feeds us dinner to get Junior's whine on tape.
