Late last evening Atira, Tell and I entered the near empty Portland Jetport to bring a Hawaiian family member home. No. Not my son, Jubal. Not even my daughter-in-law, Casey. It was the grandkitty, Binx.
She is a whole lot of fierce in a tiny package, as we learned while visiting Jubal and Casey back in May. Casey may have been the one who acquired her but she prefers the company of Jubal. I’m pretty sure it’s because of the way he fights with her and sends her soaring across the open living space. She loves it. Our cat SID Franklin is twice her size; before our introduction in May I worried that he might not treat her well while they are staying here. Now I’m a little worried for SID!
This morning I thought I would try a brief “hello” between them. SID was at the top of the stairs and showed some interest when he spotted Binx. She, on the other hand, gave him a huge “hisss” that left no doubt that friendship was off the table for the moment. Fortuitously, SID spends most of his time roaming the local West Bath woods and Binx is indoors only. She has been found staring longingly out several windows in the house today and I can only imagine that she is waiting for her “people” to arrive this evening.
I think we’ll postpone the feline meeting until tomorrow...
