The Cautious Cat and the Hyper Hare

In my first week of having Marty I have quickly learned that he is quite limber and energetic. He is open to meeting and playing with any person he comes in contact with, which totally contrasts the personality of Bilbo. Bilbo is the more reserved and skeptical of the two. It takes him awhile to warm up to new people, but ironically enough, Bilbo is the one that initiates almost all of their interactions.

On the first day they had contact, Bilbo and Marty were very calmly and gently sniffing each other, but then Bilbo got spooked and bopped Marty on the nose. Ever since then Marty has been extra cautious when Bilbo comes around. He often withdraws when Bilbo approaches him. 

Marty’s exuberant personality definitely seems to be bringing Bilbo out of his shell way more than I could have ever imagined. They haven’t yet made it to the stage of playing together, but they often interact in brief spurts. Bilbo likes to run up to Marty, give him a quick sniff, and then scurry away. Unfortunately, Marty is not yet used to Bilbo’s quick actions and they usually frighten him.

I will continue to try and acclimate the two in hopes that they will get used to each other, but as for now I am very optimistic of their future together.
