I started to think maybe the cat would never warm up to our family.
But no, it just took a while. Now, 3 years later, we can't get Puma to leave us alone.
Sometimes it acts plain crazy. Every now and then it starts rolling around on its back in the living room. It just rolls and looks at us, pausing to lay there on its back for a few minutes. I don't think it wants to be petted. It just feels like rolling.
Puma playing dead
And Puma has suddenly started hunting with abandon. Maybe he has always done so, but now we are aware of it because he has begun bringing his trophies to the house.
He has my permission to kill all the rats he can.
Then today he totally went bonkers and would not leave my friend Greta alone as we started our exercise routine in the back yard. The cat was meowing and rubbing, batting at her hair, and being a general nuisance.
I actually had to put the cat in (not out like usual) because he would not leave her alone!
This? is the cat that started life in our household as completely anti-social...
And perhaps you recall that when we first got Puma, we caught him using the toilet instead of his litter box. His previous owners promise he never did that at their house. He is a weird cat!!
We probably should have let him continue with this trick, but we made him stop.
Puma is one of the strangest pets I have ever owned.
But we are glad he's ours! (most of the time)
