Tippy has been free to roam the house for a couple weeks now. We have a multi-leveled home with attached garage and basement. He's checked out just about every corner, nick and cranny and has been very good and calm and never pottied out side of his cat pan!!
My dogs have accepted Tippy faster than the cats. SmartyCat still growls at Tip alot, but every once in awhile you can catch her trying to snuggle up to him. Cookie is so easy going... she could careless!

I do believe things are getting back to normal!

 

Meeting the dogs..

Tippy's been in a crate, in the (heated) garage for a couple days now. I use the crate to keep him safe from any possible "get the kitty" attempts and, because I have Boston Terriers and Tippy has his claws, i'm afraid Tippy may snag a "bugeye" or two.

Today, Oct 16th, we opened the crate door!
It went GREAT. All Tippy wants is to LOVE on the Bostons! My oldest Boston, he's about 9 yrs old, he could have cared less about Tippy, much more interested in what was in Tippy's bowl! Tippy let Boston eat all of his food.
Miley, my 1 yr old Boston was suprisingly scared of Tippy. But still, everything went well.

I added a few photos.

Tonight...we are all coming in the house... like it or not Smarty Cat!!

 

go home today!!

After being caged for just over 2 wks, I'm taking Tippy home tonight. I am completely amazed by how fast he has went from a feral "wanna luv ya but scared" to a totally gentle and loving little boy.

I hope he can handle this, I know he wants to live in the house!

 

only Tippy can stay :o(

Tippy was born under a shed located on the abandoned property next to the apartment complex i'd lived in for many years. He was the only one from his 2 brothers and 1 sister that would allow me to touch them.

After many many threats and complaints from other tenants, I trapped them all and took them to my vets for "boarding", hoping that somehow I could teach them to trust people and somehow find them homes. Its starting to feel like i've taken on the impossible. I feel like keeping them confined is cruel (to them). Tippy, on the other hand, seems to really like it. The cozy beds, yummy food, and cool toys (as well as the daily room service)... he has even started to purr!!

Wednesday they will all be fixed and i've agreed to let the 3 go live in a feral cat colony recommended by my vet. Tippy will be coming home with me. To our new house! After all the hate I seen from my rental managers and neighbors over a litter of 4 wild kittens, I just couldn't live there anymore. I tried over and over to assure everyone I would have them fixed and provide the necessary winter shelter/housing they would need....but they just wouldn't budge. So we did. We moved!

I sure miss them all and our nightly feedings and chats together... i'm so worried about how the other 3 will do in the transfer to thier new lives. BUT at least Tippy will be staying with me living life in this house where he's safe!
