I just had one of the most fun experiences with my cat that I have ever had.  According to all of his records, he was born about August 28th, 2004 and I feel loved by him every day.  My little seal point siamese, Bastian, loves to explore everywhere that is new and has been with me ever since I lived at the Del Oro Circle house.  For about 7 months, he was afraid to go outside once I moved to Bridgit Drive because it was new and scary and there was an other new, big cat nearby.  Since a few months ago he ha been exploring more outside, but slowly and timidly.  He is quick to run back inside my apartment.

He and I have bonded a lot in the almost 3 years we have been together and I have learned to read his body language exceedingly well.  I'm happy about that, since it is more straight-forward that human body-language and I know his better than anyone's.  And cats don't hide anything for any reason.  Whenever I have something that he is curious about I let him smell it and sometimes taste it if it is cat-friendly.  Recently when he has been exploring outside my apartment and downstairs, he ventures farther if I am there for comfort's sake (At least that's my impression  because he looks back to see if I am still there behind him).

Tonight, I took him downstairs after I got off the phone with Kim and we explored the area together.  It takes forever for him to explore on foot, so I carried him as we went (When I don't wear a shirt, he seems more comfortable than when I do wear a shirt... Maybe it's a natural skin-to-fur thing; who knows - plus, it's a beautiful night out and not too cold).  I also like slinking around so I had fun and he seemed to be alert and curious about everything.

We went in front of my neighbor's place with all the cacti and that made Bastian scared because that's where the other cat lives, and we explored the rest of the upper level of my apartment.  Next we went downstairs and went from hiding place to hiding place as we explored the parking area and the paths on either side of my building.  This is because he does the same thing when he explores and I wanted him to feel good about being in places he's sotra uncomfortable with (And yes, I'm totally a dork and I love my kitty.  I wasn't very tired, so I decided to help my kitty feel better about going outside).  Sometimes he would make various noises that mean different things, and I would respond accordingly; fear, nervousness, curiousity, etc.  We also explored a neighbor's back yard that neither of us had been in before.  He got scared quickly so we got out of there before too long.  The rest of the time exploring, he indicated where he wanted to go by looking intently in that direction.  I think it's kind of cool and odd how well I have gotten at reading his sounds and signals, but I have spent practically every hour with him when I have been home for the past 3 years.  I even have a sound that calls him and one that makes him look at me.... (I feel dumb admitting that, which is rare).

Anyway, I brought him back up to my apartment and he has been lying near my as I wrote this post, and I know he will sleep on my bed tonight using me as a pillow.  My kitty is my friend and I hope you all have pets that you love as much as I love mine.


P.S. I'm happy that we aren't each others' type, it would just complicate things too much.
