Making Friends

Chris is still hard at work trying to turn Frankie from an enemy to a friend. I am happy to say he has made significant progress these last few months. It is Chris’s behavior toward Frankie when we adopted him that turned Frankie into an enemy and it is now Chris’s behavior that is slowly turning him into a friend.

I was surprised and disappointed in Chris’s attitude when we brought Frankie home but now I am very proud that he is trying to be friends. Just like in the human world, it takes many good acts to erase one bad one and Chris has worked for many months to erase weeks of bad behavior.

They have been laying close to each other for a few months lately but not too close. last week I saw them both napping with Chris’s head against Frankie’s back. I tried to get a picture but my movement woke them up. The other day Rose saw Frankie give Chris a few licks on the head and I captured the two of them lying close together. Of course, Chris came to Frankie and not the other way around but the fact that Frankie didn’t leave is real progress.

    There is progress. That is so cool. Unlike here at the Hotel Thompson. Looks innocently around. Thank goodness it’s not me here that can’t get along. It’s the purr things and the puppy. XOXO – Bacon

        Snorts- add a pig to that equation and it’s a zoo here at the Hotel Thompson my friend. Mommy says that if you add daddy to the equation it gets even laughable. Silly mom huh? XOXO – Bacon

    The other night Mom caught Mauricio giving Lily Olivia a bath. It lasted about five minutes. In the ten years they have lived together, they have never gotten along. Mom has given up trying to figure out kitty relationships. We love these photos with Chris and Frankie together. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Here is a post from late 2014 for Throwback Thursday. When we got Frankie early that year Chris was mean to him for several weeks. He then tried to make amends but Frankie didn’t trust him for a long time.
