Also, he had his first foray into the back courtyard:
Then, of course, there's Polly. Polly has met New Cat for brief periods, and whilst there's been no actual violence (She hisses a little bit if he plays too close to her, and she raises a paw - no claws - until he backs off) and Polly has stopped hiding when he comes out of the bathroom, she remains un-impressed:
Polly's been getting a lot of love, but it's a little tricky introducing a kitten to an established cat. She's doing well, though. We were careful to consider the kind of cat both of them are - Max is outgoing but not too playful, and he's the kind of kitten to take a swat and come back. But not the type to fire up if Polly gets a bit sick of his playing. Polly has been around other cats before, so it's not a total surprise to her.
We do have one issue, though.
There's a sign in the courtyard from a previous tenant, that's been left there because it's rather apt. But Max doesn't seem to want to follow the instructions:
There's a traitor in the ranks, people.
Luckily, he's a very, very cute traitor.
