Tijgertje (Dutch diminutive of "Tiger") arrived today. He's my brother and sister-in-law's cat. Unfortunately---how shall we put this?---he wasn't quite the natural match with their dual-career, dual noisy-kid household. He's a rather shy creature, and might benefit from a less lonely and more quiet house. Originally he was sheduled to arrive in May, but just before he'd be arriving, Lies & litter cut that plan short nicely.

Three months late, he's here now. Tieleke gave him a nice brush, which he seemed to like. Then, he fled behind the fridge. I cut off all power there, and am waiting for him to reappear. Three types of cat treats are waiting for him when he does.


Nine hours later now, he's still hiding there. Hasn't used the litter box, hasn't eaten. Cat treats do not impress him, continual loud complaints are no problem though.

Tips, anyone...?
