Sebastion relaxing on top of our bookcase

There are only a few inches between Sebastian's head and the ceiling in the family room - but this is one of his "safe" places. Although he is very comfortable in younger son's room, likely due to the "imprinting" when he spent his first week there under quarantine, he is typically wary about where to lie down when he is downstairs with the rest of the family. Usually, he will come to eat his meals when he hears the sound of cans being opened and then he will head back upstairs to the relative safety of the second floor. If we open the kitchen window, he is captivated by the allure of the outdoor scent and will gladly stay by the window until we get too cold with it being open (usually around -15 to -20 degrees at this time of the year so it doesn't stay open long!). Every once in awhile, he decides to honour us with more of his time and he jumps effortlessly up to the top of the bookcase, to rest for a short time. At the beginning, his eyes would quickly open whenever he heard anyone come by, but he has come to realize that no one is interested in hauling him down from his resting place. He will stretch out and then close his eyes, looking quite peaceful. He is getting more comfortable with us, even to the point of occasionally sitting in Papa Bear's computer chair - of course, when Papa Bear has just left it nice and warm!
