Just thought I would send you a quick update on Loki and let you know just how happy and pleased we are with him. He has been such an awesome addition to our family! Everyone who has met him has fallen in love with his personality and he has already converted many people who claim to "hate cats" including my Dad.
He has such a laidback personality that fits in so well with our lifestyle. We've travelled quite a lot with him the past month and he has continued to impress us with his confidence and sense of adventure in unfamiliar places. He is fantastic in the car and the family and friends we have stayed with are amazed with the speed at which he adjusts to new places and often comment on how dog like he is in his mannerisms and personality. He goes for short walks on a harness with Nash and I in the morning and is known by name by people in our apartment building... including a little girl who lives upstairs and often comes to our patio door to ask if Loki and Nash can come out to play. So cute.
Our vet is also quite smitten with Loki and is even considering getting her own Siberian after meeting ours. She said she has never met a cat that is so comfortable in any situation. When we were there the other day to drop Loki off to be neutered, a great dane was in the office waiting room. Loki was on a harness and leash sitting on my lap when he jumped off and started to wander towards the dane. I asked the owner if the dog was friendly with cats and the owner said that her dane had never met a cat. Loki, being the brave little cat he is, wandered right over to the dane and rubbed himself up against the danes front legs . It was the neatest thing I have ever seen! No fear, no hesitation - just making friends wherever he goes! Our vet has even suggested we consider taking Loki to visit some of the elderly people in the long term care facilities in our area. It's something we would love to try this summer, so I will let you know how that goes!
Loki is super snuggly and will beg to be picked up by chirping and dancing around your feet. He is constantly purring and has such an amazing friendship with our dog Nash - the two of them are absolutely inseparable now. They play together, they have afternoon naps together, and they even insist on sharing the same water dish and toys! Such a heartwarming friendship.
I have attached some of our favorite pictures from the last month so you can see how handsome he's gotten. We will be sure to send you another update in the next few months. In the meantime, please take care and enjoy this lovely summer weather!
