Aby-a-Day – October 10: Angel vs the pillow (Hipstamatic Monday)

Today is the third anniversary of Angel’s adoption, and while she’s become a lot less skittish since we brought her home, she still gets scared of things the other cats don’t. For example, the other day my husband happened to put a throw pillow on the back of the sofa.


I’m not sure why, but Angel was very concerned about this pillow.


When she first noticed it, she stood stock-still and stared at it for quite a while.


She also stalked it carefully, using our collection of “things going into storage” as cover.


Had it been any other cat, I’d have made a hissing sound to see her reaction.


Angel was so intent, though, that I was afraid hissing would really startle her.
