My Moley kitty has let me pet him for some time now and he has kissed my hand and has never gone to bite me....life is good!!!!
We got Alley from a shelter and that has been two years now. Whenever I reach suddenly to pet her, she still shys away so I know that she was the victim of abuse before the shelter. There are many common things around the house that still scare her, the simple act of flushing a toilet will cause her to run away. But, she loves to play with Persi, friendly fighting and especially the laser light. We have a vacuum operated elevator that has been causing her to run for shelter every time it is operated but I can see that she is becoming less afraid each month. Despite her being so afraid of things, when it is bedtime she joins us in bed until morning time when she disappears for the day. They say time heals all wounds and it is such a blessing when she gets over her fears, one by one.
Good luck with your kitty, he will come around eventually.
