Finally some slightly better photos of Tiger

and sleeping in his bed in the hall

Tiger3

He hasn’t bitten or scratched me since that last time but Andy was scrammed this evening. We hiss at Tiger when he does something wrong. He knows that he’s been naughty then. I hissed at him when he bit me on Sunday and he ran up the stairs.

We’ve just been giving him short, quick strokes. They don’t seem to overstimulate him. The other cats have had a few more meetings with tiger and they’re still not one hundred per cent sure of him. He’s actually very nervous of them as well – even nervous of Pushkin who’s about half his size!

And onto the knitting. I’ve had Scarf Style for a while now and have always been attracted to Jo Sharp’s Misty Garden. I ordered the yarn for it, her rare Comfort Infusion Mohair from Get Knitted and started it on Saturday. It’s an easy feather and fan pattern but I did make a couple of mistakes that i had to rip out. And ripping out mohair is such a joy isn’t it?! 🙂 I like how the scarf is turning out but wish I’d bought a brighter colour. I’m making it from the Jasmine Tea shade which is a dark plum with grey. Have a look at the Scarf Style Knitalong for more Misty Gardens!

    He’s so gorgeous! And I do hope the hissing works. 🙂

    A beautiful cat. Looks like things are improving.

    tiger is a beauty. It sounds as though his behavior is improving. Hopefully when he feels completely comfortable in your home he’ll stop biting and scratching completely.

    I suspect that he’ll calm down of his own volition, and if not, the hissing and rebuking might work. If not, I wonder if he’s reacting to his label. Perhaps calling him Tiger makes him aggressive. Try “Fluffy” or “Licky”.

    We all know that disciplining cats is a crap shoot anyway, but I’ve always wondered about whether a well-directed puff of air from one of those cans of “dusters” (you know for electonics) would work. We had a dog that used to head for the hills every time he saw an aerosol can. He was unafraid of just about everything else.

    Well, I meow at Kimba sometimes. We apparently have a conversation that *she* understands.
