Fizzgig, Obie and Pica's mom came over with Pica. 9 did his best to scare off the 'scary' little woofie by getting big and hissy. Chani held the title of bravest for a little while because although she puffed out a bit, she didn't run too far away and later she actually kept a close eye on Pica.
BUT, dear SPAM-chan, my little boy who is the king of hiding in plain sight was the bravest of the three. He even tried to do a nose touch with Pica. And Pica, good girl that she is, allowed it.
Still, it's lovely to see my orange interloper gaining confidence and coming to greet me with the other two when I come home. He's not fully greeting me with purrs and stretches like 9, but at least he comes out from where he was hiding or sleeping.
