Emma Has Come Out
Karen Jo: I have been very tired lately. We can make a nice, long post today to let everyone know all that has been going on. Tuesday morning I was in Emma's room, petting her while sitting on the couch with her when Herman came into the room. He sat down about two feet away and just looked at Emma. I set her down on the floor right by my feet just to see what would happen. Herman walked up to Emma and they actually touched noses. Then Herman decided to get personal and sniffed Emma's tail. Emma growled softly at him and he backed away just a little bit. Herman darted out a paw and touched Emma's paw. Emma hissed softly and Herman turned around and left the room. I did a bunch of stuff that needed doing and was feeling pretty tired by four o'clock or so. I decided to play with Herman and/or read in the living room for a while. I opened Emma's door to see what she would do and, after a while, she came out. Unfortunately. Herman went charging down the hall and scared her half to death. Instead of ducking back into her own room, though, she ran under my bed. I went to sit on my rocking chair and Emma came out after about five minutes and started inspecting my room. After about 15 minutes, Herman came in and watched her. Emma would find a place she liked to sit and Herman would walk up to her. Emma would hiss and Herman would back off. After the third hiss, Herman left my room. Emma left shortly after Herman did and went back to her own room. I closed the door, thinking that she probably wanted to be left alone after her big adventure.
I don't know why she doesn't like me. I like her and I haven't ever done anything to her to scare her.
Karen Jo: Not deliberately, no. Charging down the hall at her full speed did scare her, though. Wednesday was just like the other days with Emma in her room and Herman outside. Today was Emma's big day.
Things got interesting at Mom's dinner time. Tonight was steak night and, as usual, Mom ate her steak while watching TV in her room. Emma was sitting on Mom's computer chair and I was sitting at Mom's feet. I got three bites of steak and Emma got one. There was no hissing at all.
