Hobbes used to be our scaredy-cat. She puts on a good show of being terrified still, but if she were really scared she’d do her rabbit gallop away from us, not practically over our feet.
When we first got her as a kitten in 1991, she was far more timid than she is now. My daughter admitted a few years ago — after she’d left for college — that maybe the kids’ playing doctor on Hobbes made her so fearful. Geez, who woulda thought?
