Ginger has learned how to snuggle

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Ginger has always been affectionate, and loves giving rubs and headbutts, and getting petted. I didn't think that she was going to make any more leaps of faith and trust - she seemed to trust us quite well. I was wrong, and it just made my heart sing!

OK, first, just a cute picture of Ginger hanging out by the stair railing. Notice how she's wrapped completely around the pole.



I don't know if she was "pole dancing" or practicing how to snuggle.

Anyway, Trent was very snuggly this weekend with me, and Ginger watched him snuggling with me on the couch yesterday. After he left, she decided that she could try it for herself. Now, she's never been anywhere close to a lap cat, or snuggling up on our chests when we recline. But she did yesterday! And she found out that it was really nice to be that close to Meowmy.

So today, Earl was sitting on the couch watching the game. The same place I was at when she snuggled me. She decided she should try it with Daddy, too (I had to explain to him that she's just learning how to snuggle, and to be extra nice to her). It didn't take long before she found out that snuggling with Daddy is really nice!





And getting scritches from Daddy can be kitty ecstacy!





I'm so proud of little Ginger Cookie!

Hee hee That's the nickname that Eileen gave her, and it fit so well that she kept it. She's sweet like a cookie! Even Earl calls her Cookie sometimes now.

She is just precious. It' such a joy when they finally find out that being a lap / snuggle kitty is so much more fun than just laying beside a person.

She really has...

Just goes to show that even the most affectionate stray can still have trust issues.

Here's one of the first pics that Eileen took of her when she was brought in around the first of August:



And now, just 6 months later

Awww that's so sweet!!!

Yeah I know how little moments like these really warm your heart. I remember the two times my baby boy Wukong did something really unexpected, which left such a deep impression on me that I think I will remember them for years to come...

First was when he was a little kitten and crawled onto my chest to sleep. This was really something unexpected cos he didn't really like human contact, preferred to run around like crazy. You know how they are at that age...

Second was when he fell four storeys (survived.. with no injuries!) and was in deep shock. He would not come out from under the bed for anything until I came to see him after work (he was staying with a friend), then he crawled out real slowly and came to lie on my lap..

Just wanted to share... Sorry for the long-windedness

Those first snuggles and scritches - when they allow it to be ecstasy!

Heidi - how absolutely precious. I'm going backward in time here, so it's really cool. In the last batch, Ginger was a scarf kitty doing the parrot kitty thing! She's come such a long way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
