Behavior & Training > Breakthroughs and Bonding.....
Rogue

So im not really here to ask a question...just haad to share!

A few years ago My partner and i adopted a very timid and unhappy elderly kitty.....Rogue. She was mistreated , overweight and her fur was matted and greasy.
The first day she arrived she hid away for the whole day, hissed at me, didnt eat and generally just acted like the most anti social kitty ive ever met. My partner was very worried, he talked about taking her back....we argued.... I won.

A week later, she walked into a room and sat down on the floor, Gave me an upwards nod and proceeded to groom herself!! Breakthrough number one!

As time moved on we were blessed with more and more little triumphs!
laugh out loud
3months into her new home, she surprised us by jumping onto the bed and falling asleep beside my feet.

6months into her stay she rubbed against my hand and then she sat beside me and watched me weed the garden.

Later that month she let me brush her still greasy fur and softly purred like a little motor bike... I cried! laugh out loud

As time moved on she grew more fond of me and began to let me clap her now soft fur without flinching, She jumped onto the couch for the first time about 8months after she came home. I cried again!!!1 A running theme!

Everyday Rogue learns to trust us all a bit more, she greets strangers in the house with headbutts,and body rubs, she grooms our two other kitties softly like a mumma cat and she follows my 2year old daughter around as if shes a guard dog.

She is very in tune to our emotions now, and sits by me when im stressed or tired, or watches me with kissy eyes from accross the room. 2 weeks ago she rolled over and let me rub her soft tummy!

Shes getting older now, and doesnt want to go outdoors into the garden anymore, in favour of a warm spot on the bed.

Rogue NEVER sits on my lap, she has only let me pick her up once...but i dont mind!

Today, i had to take the morning off work because of a more than severe headache, i curled up in a ball in the bedroom in the dark....I mustve been on the bed for the best part of two minutes before i heard Rogue push the door open...

She jumped on to the bed and sat next to me, A great and rare thing, i decided to chance my luck and put my arm around her bottom, up over her belly to her face, usually she will immediately stand up and flick her tail in annoyance...Today she nuzzled her face into my hand, i cried again.....i kept moving a bit closer to her slowly untill she let me lay my head on her belly and she purred very loudly licked my face and then fell asleep!!!!!

Today feels like a massive triumph and i feel trully releived and exhilirated that the work weve put into gaining her trust is paying off!

Its such a profound and rewarding experience to be loved by a cat who was wronged by someone in the past, it takes time and patience but BOYO is it WORTH IT!!!!

Needless to say, i fell asleep with her and woke up feeling tonnes better, although, i fell asleep just me and Rogue i woke up with Gizmo behind my legs and Batfink at my feet too...i felt a bit like they were using me as a hot water bottle but none the less happy!
Sorry for the long post but had to share!
Also would love to hear if anyone has had similar experience with a rescue Kitty

Purrs xx

Who's Feeling Silly > Happiness Is....

Happiness is when i walk in my front door and i am greeted by my bouncing kitten Gizmo, my wise old lady Rogue and grumpy teenage cat Batfink, all with tails in he air with the same look of ''Where on earth you been? i missed you!why did you leave? whatve you got to eat?''

Happiness for us kitties is when its quiet in the house, warm, and we are all cosied up on the same sofa after dinner with mumma trying to find some space inbetween the fur and purrs.

Cat Health > Cats, Pain and Metacam....

Rogue

My Rescue female rogue also pulls out her fur around her back in relation to pain, and we discovered it was because of a cist under her leg,all of our kitties are regularly treated with frontline and the is not a single flea apon her fur,she never displayed any ohter sypmtoms, she ate well, played socialised etc but when she started pulling at her fur i noticed the cyst hidden under her leg. Hope you are all well now, ive had to use metacam on two occasions on cats under a year olds, but i limited it to a few doses so cannot comment on long term, the only thing i can say is that if it is improving the quality of life then i see no other option, you want your kity to be happy, and sometimes, risks dont always matter as MUCH when it comes to giving your cat comfort and mobility. Hope you are both well. Roguey Puss, Batfink, Gizzy xxx

Outside cats and indoor cats both NEED to scratch, provide kitty with a sctatching board and pop it in front of the ares he scratches, when my carpets were laid i saved the spare bits and put them on bit of the wall in our walk in cupboard for our kitties to use too. there are some scratchers that are cat trees too , your outdoor to indoor kitty will love having some vertical territory . best of luck.

Kitten Corner > How were you named?

Purred: Thu Sep 6, '12 6:52am PST 
Aww what a housefull you have, well done you for rescuin these poor kitties.If you dont mind me asking... What happened to Mamma cat?

We named our elder female ''Rogue'' because she was a rescue cat and she didnt follow the rules....

We Called our second kitty ''Batfink'' because of his vampire bat like Fangs and black fur....

I named our third kitty ''Gizmo'', because he is the spitting image , down to the the exact fur markings, of my childhood cat ''Gizmo'' whom i loved very much.......although ive kind of cursed myself as ''Gizmo the First'' was a quiet soul ....''Gizmo the Second'' is a hyperactive alpha cat......on second thoughts i shouldve called him ''Hero''...because he is scared of Nothing!
