Four years ago we rescued a very sick kitty from the street.Our vet saved her life after a joint effort -hers and the cat's - that was on the verge of collapse due to an unexplained injury to her mouth and inner jaw. She's been with us since, and integrated fairly well with our other 15 indoors cats - but she will very seldom let herself be petted by us , and if so - only if she iniciates contact and then - only for very short periods. NEVER to be held or craddled or lifted -consequently - we have not been able to put her in a carrier and take to the vet - for much needed attention and care - routine and otherwise. She tolerates us in the same room provided we pretend not to see her... (this does not include her feline roommates - only us two two legged ones) HAVE ANY TIPS , ADVICE ? Sorry for the very long post - I promise to work on the editing next time. Thanks in advance for your help !
