Okay, it's not really my cooking. It's a vitamin supplement added to the gravy from a tin of canned food, the only part she'll actually eat. It looks gross, but two weeks ago it was her favorite thing in the world.
Now she's being picky.
And not just picky, she's actually figured out how to say something bad about it.
In cat behavior, that scratching motion is only made when burying something in the litter box.
She's telling me the food is s**t.
Maybe she's smarter than I thought.
Edit: It's possible she's just trying to save it for later, some cats do that, but she refused to eat this stuff several times a day, at least a couple days in a row (fresh batch every day). If that's the case, I'm not sure how much later she was trying to save it for. It's also much funnier if I interpret it as an insult.
Other than this, she's actually settled in quite well. She still refuses to spend any time in the living room for some reason, but she has been sleeping on the bed just about every night for the past week or two.
And I replaced some of her claw caps the other day, and she only went all bendy and squirmy for the first two. For the last two or three, she just lay on her side (purring like a wee fuzzy monster) and let me put them on her. That was a pleasant surprise.
Kuro is a 6-year-old spayed female, available for adoption through the Japan Cat Network. She is a little shy, but she is self-sufficient. I think she would be a great companion for a working professional or for a family. She doesn't need a lot of attention, but she appreciates it very much when she gets it. She meows a bit when she's happy, but for the most part she is very quiet.
