Update on my new baby, Charlie.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Thanks so much to all of you who assured me that Charlie would eventually come around. For those of you who haven't read my previous posts, I adopted a 3 year old cat who was left in a closet for 2 1/2 years and he a bit bashful now.

I have Charlie secluded in my 12' by 14' bedroom. I was at first very concerned because he wouldn't come out from under the bed and I had to administer liquid antibiotics for his gum infection (which is now much better-and less smelly). I gently coaxed him out after petting him for a while and he took his medication easily. I follow up with a little bowl of the Whiska's treat milk as a reward.

He loves to be pet and I've groomed him about 3 or 4 times already. Last night, he jumped into my bed and slept between Jeremy and I. After a while of petting, Jeremy placed him on the floor. He jumped back up a few minutes later and regained his spot or the next few hours.

He is turning into such a wonderful pet. His vet appointment is Tuesday and I am interested in what my vet has to say about him even though he is up to day with his shots and tests. After I get the ok from the vet, I am going to introduce him to my maine coon who is also a 3 year old male.

I will post updated pictures soon. As for now, this is Charlie a few weeks ago in the shelter.

That is terrific news. Glad to hear Charlie is doing so well. I was concerned he was going to have socialization issues because of his background.
Good for you and Charlie

That is good news! Like everyone else, I was worried about possible problems considering his background. This is coming along quicker than I thought, and I'm so glad for you.

Alright! I love it when they sleep on the bed with you. I am always so careful not to push them off.
