Sitting up behind litter box, grooming. Became alert when door opened, eyes dilated. Allowed brief pets, then leaned away, started lip licking. Came slowly out to main compartment to eat treats after door closed. Retreated back to behind litter box when done eating.
Resting in top cubby, soft posture but dilated eyes. Lay in place when door opened, leaned forward to sniff hand. Startled new person entered the room, eyes darting. Allowed, then leaned hard into pets, rolled over on side, put head down, but remained alert.
Curled up asleep behind litter box, woke when door opened. Initially became alert, eyes fully dilated, but warmed up immensely once touched. Leaned into pets, purred loudly, rolled all the way over!
Curled up asleep behind litter box again. Woke when door opened, lay in place, soft eyes and body. Leaned into pets, purred loudly. Ate offered treats, then came out to main compartment for more.
