It's so nice when the furbabies get brave enough to cuddle.

Thank you everybody, she"s my girl :lovestruck:. She seems to be progressing very quickly, it could be because of it being winter and us and all the kitties are in the house full time, she is getting used to humans. She didn't stay long on the couch. When I moved, she got nervous and jumped down :sad:.

Czari does that too. She'll get on the couch, and either sit on my lap or next to me, like Rose is doing. If I get up, or move too much, she'll either jump down or hiss and then jump down. But, after a little bit, she jumps back up.

I think Rose is just being really cautious, as we know cats can be. I really think she will progress faster now. She knows you aren't going to harm her, and no doubt she realizes that cuddles and kisses are great!

I think you are right, AG, she has to KNOW that I am not going to harm her in any way and once she realizes that, she will progress faster and faster as a loveable house princess, er, I mean Kitty :D.

I have to thank you for bringing her into my life, she is a doll who brings joy to my heart everyday. I keep thinking of what could have been her destiny at that warehouse :sad:

Aww L4H,Rose is a sweet little tabby girl,I am sure from now on,she'll make great strides towards you.
She knows you only want to love her,she certainly won the jack-pot coming to your house:thumbs up

L4H I can so appreciate the bond you are building right now. My newest - rescue Chloe has been in the house for only about 1 1/2 weeks and she is now starting to believe that she can enter the same room as me and not have to run, but alas, 80% of the time, she still does. She is starting to recognize mealtimes and will come to her placemat to eat - she is a piggie for someone so small!
I know how every LITTLE advancement just means so much.
When I had her at the vet's the day I trapped her, she was being carried around by the staff (in a towel, as they needed blood) and I heard one of the staff tell her she had won the lotttery coming to live with me. It made me feel good.
I am sharing your good feelings of gaining trust. :thumbs up

It sure will. When I first trapped Trey he was very stressed and unsure. It has taken a long time but I can now pick him up for a short period of time. When I scratch him behind the ears he cocks his head to get right into the scritches. He lifts his hind end when I scratch in front of his tail. He will never be a cuddle bum like some of my others but I figure every day brings him a little closer.
Everyone knows the story of Jupiter, my big black kitty. He was Mr Miserable before he got caught and fixed. Now he is the first one to meet me at the gate. Last week he started purring when I picked him up. :cloud9:
There are many others here who started their lives as ferals or drop offs. It sure makes my heart sing every single day.

Ok, back to Rose's story now........... :o
