Hi everyone, Max here. I finally came out of hiding about 9 pm last night. I still didn't want to eat but I did eat about 4 pieces of my food. I knew where my "box" was and ok with that. Mom and Dad were reading in bed and I jumped up and kept going back and forth between them with head bumps and curling up and purring. But I didn't sleep with them. Mommy doesn't know where I slept. I do know at some point Mom left her closet door open and I liked it in there because I can go though a shelf and get to Daddy's side and he has a basket there with his summer shorts in and I like to sleep there.
Later on in the day I discovered I wasn't too afraid to go out on the big screen porch. I saw chickens and hens and birds. What a great time I had. Mom said my eyes were real big when the chickens walked toward the porch and 2 red birds took a bath in the bird bath thingy that's pretty close to the porch. I did eat almost 1/4 cup of food all at once this morning but nothing else all day. Then I took a nap under the long thing in the music/computer room. I had a big day.
This is Mom now:
Max went into the closet about 4 pm and is still there. I checked on him and he seems fine but I'm not used to a cat secluding himself for so long. It is now 11:40 at night. I'll give him few more days and see if he stays out longer. I feel like I don't have a cat at the moment. He is a sweetheart when he is awake. Doesn't scratch at all except on his scratch pad. I hope he'll want to be out with us more as time goes on. I'll feel sad if he doesn't.
