Hi! I just read a thread about taming a feral, featuring Sandi's Cat Lucky! and I went through the same things with my cat Alix and I thought that I should comment. Anyway, Im a graduate student in Minnesota and I have two cats, and a fish. I also foster cats for my local Humane society. My big guy, Oliver (0llie) is the ultimate lap sitter! As soon as a person is on the couch, he gets this look in his eyes, and three seconds later, he's in your lap. He is also partial to men. My little cat, Alix, came to me as a foster cat. She was about nine months old, and so scared! When she first came, I never ever saw her. I called her "Bat" because she would come out at night to play with Ollie. Then she was "Mouse" because She would come out during the day, but have nothing to do with me. I would spend hours in the bedroom, lying on my back, next to the bed, reading a book a book to her. Now, she follows me everywhere, and loves to be held! The fish is named Blue, he lives in a fishbowl, and Alix and China(the foster cat), spend hours a day trying to figure out how to get past the top of the water to get at him.
