This cat has taken to popping by on occasion, he's a handsome chap (definitely a 'he' btw, despite being fairly small. Either that or she's got a couple of awkwardly placed large moth balls)
In 'socialising a cat that originally hated us' news, we've progressed to 'strongly disliked, but starting to become curious'. She popped her head up from behind the couch like a periscope the other day, and is content to stay on her soft mat behind the sofa and look at us when we say hello (as opposed to squirm under the sofa). Still not happy with us approaching her though. She's taken to exploring the flat at night a lot more - if we leave our bedroom door open, she'll sniff around the room, doesn't run off if you turn a phone-torch on. So slowly slowly catchy monkey, but feels like it's a matter of time now.
