Fred is doing well and has pretty much integrated himself into our household. Here he is curled up on the daybed right next to my spot. This is the first time he has done this, although he has been seeking more attention lately. We've been taking him outside, which he really enjoys, and he has proven himself so trust worthy that we even let him out on his own. Mostly he likes to sit on the deck and enjoy the sights and smells of the outdoor world, but sometimes he likes to take a walk around the house. This afternoon he sat in a sunbeam for a while.
And last weekend (the first time we let him stay out on his own) he took a bath in the sun (that's a leaf next to his bum).
