Aji loves flowers, including eating rose petals.
(Her mother Masa is more interested in food and naps.)
She enjoys nibbling on wheatgrass too.
This is the first time I've had indoor cats, a decision made after having two cats disappear and knowing we have coyotes and fishers in the neighborhood, as well as living on a busy street. I thought it would be difficult and unfair to the cats, but it's been really easy. We give them lots of attention, playtime, nice places to nap and look out the window.
It helps that there are two of them. The shelter will only let kittens be adopted with another kitten or the mother cat, which makes a lot of sense. My son Luke and I adopted them together. They were found under a porch when the kittens were about a week old. I don't know what kind of life Masa had before that, but she's content to stay inside.
Luke fenced off part of the yard so Aji can enjoy the sights and smells of the outdoors.
He potted plants for her garden, and I added some too. She loves it out there. He or I sit on a bench nearby and read, but she hasn't tried to escape. She enjoys chasing bugs and feeling the grass and the breeze.
Masa mostly paces, so I usually take her in after a few minutes. Apparently she had enough of the great outdoors in her previous life.
She prefers a screen between herself and the world.
