In her own sad, silent, scary little world

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
One wonders what life must be like for Ophelia, never knowing what she will find when she awakens, every time she falls asleep I can only imagine she feels helpless, defenseless.....

...so she finds whatever she can to take comfort. Like a kitten mitten







Crazy playin' kitty



...and completely relaxed, sleeping next to her best friend & savior - a member of my family...in her "safe zone" on her couch.

Oh... Ophelia Rose... So cute ... She looks so sweet too !
Why do you think her world is so sad? Because she is deaf? She has you as a mommy... she can't be that sad!

She's a very easily 'agitated to aggression' type of cat, partly due to being deaf. I mean, had I been the one behind the camera & startled her awake, she would've probably gone after me. But I'm the meanie who medicates her daily & takes her to the vet. Whereas "her" person only pets, plays with, and snuggles with her. The only cat she really relates to is Dory, and that's just because he takes incessant beatings from her.

Nat, your last two posts are getting me incredibly sappy

The love you show for your animals is amazing.

I agree...the way you empathize with your cats, in spite of thier challenges is really something.

That second pic is so cute - Ophelia looks like she's just challenging you to say something about her mitten.

I can sympathize with your feeling about her. I know it breaks my heart knowing that Ella wakes up every day convinced that today's the day we're taking her back to the shelter. She's improved a lot, but she clearly has trouble trusting. After 3 years in cages, that's not too surprising.

Ophelia Rose - look how peaceful you are on your couch.

But Nat, I can't help feeling like the pictures with Ophelia should always have the "red eye" problem. It seems appropriate.

for loving her on her terms.

You take 'em as they are & deal with 'em. If they have problems, you don't try to "fix" them to make them "purr-fect", but love them as they are. You accomdate their needs as best you can.

And at the end of the day, you love them, even if they sometimes don't love you!

When I think about her life before you, thats when I feel sad for her, but she is safe now, even if she sometimes doesn feel it.

Nat, this is actually a pretty solid mantra for love in general. Good on you for knowing it at a young age instead of having to learn it later down the road. I said it before, but I'll say it again: Your cats are blessed to have found you.

I'm sure that Ophelia loves you even though she doesn't show it. I like all your cats but Ophelia Rose is my favorite.

Ophelia Rose is a beautiful cat no matter what her physical problems are. She looks very content in her world. She makes me miss my white babies so much.

She is a beauty.

You have no idea how much I wish there were more people like you in the world. We have several long term residents at our shelter that need someone who understands them.
