Congrats to Gibson on the completion of Book Three of Pictures of You. I know not all of my readers are from around SmackJeeves, so you may not have checked out POY, but you should :) (link at bottom of page)
Dude there reminds me of one of my kitties. Poor Boris & his cousin Natasha were victims of hurricane evacuation escapades when they were kittens. They never fully recovered from the paranoia of being hauled back and forth across 3 states in a few days of massive stress- especially Boris. He's such a terrified cat even now, skittish and worried about everything, but once he feels comfortable, oh the love and the cuddling.
