Hi! :)

Hallo there!

I posted earlier this week (I think) in the breeders corner. Now that we have gotten our babies home, I thought I would -really- introduce myself.

We just brought home two straight eared Scottish folds today. Haggis and Ghillie They have to be the most adorable things I have ever seen

It was a 3 1/2 hour drive up there, and a little longer on the way home. The poor things have just been scared to death. We got them home and they have been hiding, skittish, etc. They have been eating, drinking, using the litter box. Haggis even played with us a bit, at one point he was rolling on his back to let me pet his belly. Talk about a heart melter!

Ghillie is going to be a little bit more of a challenge, she's freaking out anytime someone moves. She doesnt want you to hold her, but if you talk to her and pet her, she does calm down for a little while until she decides she has had enough. The breeder trimmed her nails this morning but she's ripped my hands up allready

I'm really hoping that with some time these two will feel comfortable and become great lap cats. I feel so bad that they are so frightened. Understandable, I mean they have gone through hell today.

I suppose I have always been lucky with my past kittens, they were never frightened of the family or the house, they acclimated right away. I've been reading a few different forums since we got home, and I guess I really DID get lucky with my past cats, as it seems this is normal for most people?

I promise to get some photo's of these little ones up as soon as I can.

It sounds like it has been a trying time with the trip and all...give them awhiel and I`m sure they`ll settle in.

Welcome to The Cat Site!

What adorable names for your Scottish babies. I am certain they will get over their new house jitters in no time. You just need to give them a little room to themselves and let them explore. I can't wait to see some pictures of them

I'm sure you're going to love it here, so much to learn and many great friends to make along the way!

I hope that Haggis and Ghillie are settling down a bit now, I'm sure they'll feel a lot better once they have sourced the best hiding spaces and fun play areas!

I look forward to getting to seeing pictures of your babies and getting to know you in the other forums!
