People keep asking how our cats (we have 5) are reacting to Violet. So far, they seem to consider her to be on par with the furnace – something to be avoided if making noise, occasionally sniffed, but generally ignored. Over the last few weeks, however, she has taken more of an interest in them; reaching out when they are near, studying them when they walk past. When they happen to lay close, we have to watch her because her idea of petting is limited to clutching a handful of fur, whiskers, or an entire face. We worry that the day is not too far off when one of the cats will come to the end of their patience and take a swipe at her. I hope it doesn’t happen, but if it does, I’m hoping it's on someone else's watch.
