One of the two new kittens at the stables. We started socialising them at the right stage but now they just run off. They haven't had any trauma but they're still very shy. This one will allow me stroke his back if mum is about but that's it. I'm playing the long game. Just sit next to them and wait until curiosity gets the better of them. The one I was going to adopt hasn't adopted me.
Burt, the desert cat who was rescued 10 months ago. He was a timid kitty who hid away and trembled a lot.
Well, it only took a couple of weeks for him to turn into a gregarious, over-confident, destructive a-hole.
Just look at that face. Doesn't he look like an angel? Well he fkg isn't!
I had a day off yesterday so I was going to have a lie in. Burt had different ideas and came into the bedroom and started shouting for me to get up, so he can have his usual hairball treats and head rubs at the appointed time.
I then found out that I had left my tablet in the living room overnight. It has (or had) a very nice fabric covered case. Burt had discovered that it was excellent for sharpening his claws and shredded it.
And just look at those claws - they're like a set of karambit knives - one at each corner. He even sleeps with them deployed.
The couch, dining chairs, and rugs have also suffered and bear his signature.
Anyway, if you're thinking of adopting one of these weirdos, be prepared to say goodbye to all your soft furnishings. Also get some ear plugs - they like to vocalise - and loudly.
Having said all that, he is entertaining: it adds a little excitement to life when I'm at home and I never know when he's going to spring an ambush on me.
The most angsty cat in the western hemisphere has finally agreed to meet halfway in sorting her issues with crapping on the carpet out. I'm now starting to be able to figure out when she gets frantic so it's a good step on the way to success.
She's still very lonely though and keeps mooching around. Though we give her lots of fussing and care.
Contemplating finding another gentle and friendly cat friend for her. They say kittens are a good option as female cats often mother and look after younger kitties. Have to see if there's any in need of a forever home in the area.
