yeah I figure indoor cats prob get less exercise, and he's not a kitten any more, though still young. they said he sleeps a lot and doesn't beg to go outside or run out when they open the door so I think he must be an indoor cat. will see. will have to see whether I risk opening the balcony door with him (after he's settled in a bit). might need to get a screen door fitted. DP said he's going to call him Puddin'. it feels too much like fat-shaming a cat so I'm changing his name!
yeah I thought of richard parker afterwards - that is a great book. and a friend mentioned Lady Penelope's chauffeur in Thunderbirds. I just liked the name of the art store. ha. and thought a 'p' name would match pup/pudding so hopefully sound similar to him.
do you have a balcony and let her out onto it? does she try jump up onto the railing and over the balcony. there is a cement block running under the balcony the length of the facade, but I'd hate for him to jump off it & get lost or not be able to get back or worst. (like my sis' cat would have done if I let him out, cheeky boy)
