Butzie is finally not complaining...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
about me holding her in my arms! From the time we got her, a year ago June, she just meowed and complained and could not wait to get out of my arms. That of course did not stop me from trying because I can be stubborn as a cat, too.

Today, as per usual, I picked her up and cuddled her and scratched her head. She purred and didn't try to get out of my arms. She did give me a little nudge with one paw after a bit and I took that to mean that was enough.

So, I tried again about 2 hours later. Same thing, including the little paw nudge. Hey, I can respect that.

I am so happy!

YEAH! Since Tweety was a feral, I rejoice at every step he makes. No holding, but he will come up onto the couch for lovins. Congratulations. Your hard work and patience has certainly paid off big time!

YAY!!! I know it's a huge hurdle. When I got JoJo, she hadn't really been handled for nearly half her short life (11 months at that point). It took me a year to get her to sit on my lap without bolting at my own tiniest toe twitch. Now, five years later, I have to shove her off my lap if I need to go potty... my most recent hurdle is similar to yours... about a year ago, she let me carry her in my arms... I don't get a huge amount of time, but from a cat who would nearly claw my eyes out if I tried picking her up... to this. I was on cloud nine.. so I know exactly how you feel...

Congrats! Kitty Kisses to Butzie-Kitty!!
