Also, much to my pleasure, Niko seems to have adjusted to my camera shutter noise, possibly because I kept on snapping away from underneath the coffee table where he couldn't actually hide by ducking his head down. That means I got a ton of photos of Niko checking out my coffee table digs, and I can't decide which is cutest... so you decide! Vote in the comments :)
g. And Niko is done with the candle tour
Also, as of today I have had Niko for 1 month. I'd like to say that our progress in getting to know each other has been good, even with my insane amount of work travel in January. I was petting Niko today while holding him in my lap, and he was totally chill, not being defensive (although he does if you surprise him). Hopefully his quilling phase will be over soon and he'll be even less grumpy and perhaps will explore more exotic locations in my apartment!
