Adam rarely shows any real interest at anything I have ever bought for him,with the exception of food. Toys and other stuff do not mean anything to him, even when he was a kitten. Case in point: Last week I bought him a scratching post and thought he would love it. But the moment he saw it, he ran away as fast as he could and couldn’t even bear to spare it a glance. Let alone go near it. The way he reacted, you’d think the scratching post would suddenly morph into one huge monster and run after him. Why did I even get my hopes up about this?
But then I saw a couple of pictures of him which my sister took. He was happily playing with a umbrella. Do you know what this means? Adam has found a plaything! He did not run away from something but instead chose to actually interact with it! What a milestone! There is hope for him yet! Miracles do happen!
I reckon that it was love at first sight for Adam when he saw that umbrella.
