Here they are this evening. I had put food out, and of course Gothmog had to eat first. See Fankil politely waiting for her to finish. She's definitely the boss despite being smaller.
He started eating. She decided that there might be a moth, and began leaping like a loon waving her paws. He gave her a Look.
Then she wanted to know what my camera was doing and came over to play with the strap. And Fankil came after her!
This was about as close as he wanted to get to me, then he ran away. But this is definitely progress.
We have... decided to adopt another cat. When Fankil was at the rescue, his best buddy was a little white cat who had come in pregnant. They were obviously very close when we met Fankil at the rescue (he tried to hide under her and trod on her tiny kittens!) Now the kittens have got big and she's ready to be spayed and find a home, so we decided that we'd offer her one and reunite them. I wonder what Gothmog will think of her?
