Pagan had his first bath. He wasn't thrilled with it, but, unlike some cats, he wasn't terrified of the water either.
Pagan found out that he loved playing in baskets and in large bowls.
Pagan loved to play and act silly. They played with strings and he would leap into the air and twist himself into funny shapes to try and catch the string.
Sometimes, the younger children weren't as gentle with him as they should have been. One time, one of the little girls in the family shut him into her doll house.
When he met their dog Mercury, the two of them played. He would act as fierce as his tiny little self could act, and Mercury would pretend to bite him, but neither of them would really hurt each other. It was all pretend. Sometimes, he even stood on his back legs and came after Mercury as if he were pretending to be a great grizzly bear.
He also liked to cuddle with his family. The baby of the family was easy to climb up on and sleep with. He cuddled with everyone in the family, but as time passed, it was clear that his favourite person was Becky.
As he grew bigger, his eyes lost their blue and became the yellow-green of most cats. He even got taken outside and was allowed to explore the outdoors a little bit.
