Hello, furiends. I know the last time I told you about Koji, he failed a test when he decided to pursue Jacey across the room and the human had to step in to keep him away from Jacey. Everyone was unhappy about that, including Koji.
It seems like the time Koji is spending at the human’s work is helping him learn how to behave with us more. Two things make the human, Jacey, and me hopeful that his behavior is getting better.
First, this morning, he hid by the cabinets where I could not see him. I was walking over, and while Koji ambushed me, he did not actually jump on me. Instead, he hopped out to startle me and when I hissed at him with my ears back, he backed off.
Then, the human knew that Koji was under the bed so he decided to do an experiment. He let Jacey out of the bathroom, and let her wander through the apartment. Jacey went outside on the balcony, and Koji left her alone for a while.
After a few minutes, Koji came wandering out, and when Jacey growled and hissed at him and ran away, Koji did not chase her! He stayed right there on the balcony, and did not not even move.
The human was very happy about this. It seems like being around a lot of other felines at the human’s work is teaching Koji how to interact properly with other felines.
We will continue to experiment with Koji over the next week to see if we can get him to properly behave around Jacey. The human tells me that he is interacting much more nicely with some of the smaller female felines he goes to see in the morning, so hopefully, he will do that with Jacey as well.
