Hef is a godsend

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Before he came, poor little Mel had no one. For some reason the cats didn't like her. She didn't like me. She was scrawny and lonely and I'd always find her just sitting off on her own. Then my little Hef showed up. They just clicked. I always walk outside and find them curled up together, or bathing each other, right now they are in my window bopping each other on the head with their paws and play biting each other. It's so great. They were meant to be.

Congratulations on your new family member, Hef.
Now Mel has a friend.

You have mentioned before that Mel is not adoptable -- is she just too feral? Has she changed any since Hef came around and HE is so loving and trusts you??

He hasn't influenced her in that department at all. She just doesn't enjoy being petted. She would flatten her body under my touch and refuse to relax. I haven't been able to actually get near her for a few weeks since giving her the convenia and then taking her to the vet before that. She's started to come near me again, but when I touch her she moves away from me. She just doesn't trust me. I think she is capable of warming up to me, it would just take a LONG time.

Awww, thats super sweet. Hef is a cutie. Do you think he is living up to his namesake?

I was looking over your cat pages and i love the name Mrs. Mcclenahan. I never thought to name names that would make the vets office laugh or cringe....its a great idea! i immediately thought of Rue McClanahan from the Golden Girls.

You know I have seen this before at the shelter. A cat that is terrified of people & seems lonely will suddenly take to another cat. They must have a language we just can not understand. I remember one time we had a cat we had caught in a live trap. He was a very handsome guy, looked kind of like a rag doll. He was fine at the shelter fine with all of us, but never payed much attention to the other cats. Then one day we got a cute little black & white female. She was a stray & very scared. Well he took to her the moment we put her in the cage next to him. She was cowered in the corner of her cage. He reached his paw through & gently touched her. It was like he was saying It's OK. Then every day after that when we opened the cages one of them would crawl in the other one's cage. They just fell in love & the best thing is we found a home willing to adopt them both. So they are still together. I've been volunteering there for 7-8 years & I have never seen anything exactly like it, but cats will always amaze me.

I have no idea where my fiance got the name McClanehan! I thought he made it up until I saw an author by that name at the bookstore!

Oh my goodness, that made me tear up! I'm so thanful for Hef. Every living thing needs someone to love them.
