  • We took in a very mistreated cat that someone dump in our neighborhood. Theirs was one mean cat! For some reason she took to my daughter then after several months to my husband and after four years finally to me. I knew she had been most likely locked up in a cage all day and only let out between 6-8 in the evening. That’s when she was particularly mean. It took a long time for her to realize the only time we put her in a cage was to take her to the vet. Our vet had never seen anything like her before. I wouldn’t give up and eventually she realized. She was in a good home. She was the best cat we ever had. She live 15 years and two years ago we had to put her down. We miss her more than ever.

  • So awesome! Thanks for sharing and being so patient with her. I think people today have so much impatience and that's why animals are deemed unadoptable but I think it's the people that are unadoptable. It is the reverse because they don't have the patience!

  • Love the grumpy expression on her face! She is beautiful. It is that way sometimes when trying to connect with a cat. I have worked with dozens of feral cats over the years. Some were okay being pursued and others wanted to decide for themselves. Right now I have two sisters I am working with. One sister (Bootsie) was easy and did not mind me working at it. The other sister (Socks) is still not letting me near her but she hangs around closer to me more often now. I am so glad one has only little white booties and the other has a long white "sock" on one leg or I would not be able to tell them apart. - Heidi

  • A month? A month is so little, most cats I had took WAY MORE than that. But that's a nice video, and giving space and letting the animal do what they need is what most people don't get / dislike about cats. It's not about the human, it's about the connection.

  • Barbara the cat definitely had a grumpy face at the beginning of this video and it makes you wonder just what experiences had made her that way. Top marks must be given to the lady who filmed this video and the method that she chose to turn Barbara's life around for the better and just look at the outcome - truly heaven sent.

  • There was a single kitten in our neighbor's shed that my dog had discovered. I told the homeowner that the kitten was alone I rarely saw the mother cat with it. When the mother cat saw my dog sniffing, she didn't seem to mind and wasn't acting maternal like a normal cat would. The small size of the cat led me to believe it was neglected, but the homeowner said the mom was a stray who was being fed, so the kitten will be fine. It wasn't. I finally stepped in and started providing food and water, but I think the early malnutrition led to some mental slowness and challenges and the kitty has a look similar to the video cat, in addition to strange jumping and running style (she jumps up on stuff with all 4 paws at once).It took much longer for the cat to warm up, and only did so because she liked my dog's food and wanted some. I play with her but she is aloof and only wants attention when she hears the microwave beep to announce that the pup's food is ready. She is still a cutie. Dont believe people who think they know everything about animals, especially if the animal's safety/health is at risk. Err on the side of safety, because there is always an exception to the rule that professional experts think all animals follow.

  • This is exactly how it went down with my cat. We got him as a little feral kitten who only ever hid under my bed and hissed at me. Then one night I woke up and he was curled up next to me, we've been inseparable ever since

  • I literally let my cat come to me. If she climbs on my chest for cuddles, cuddles it is. She wants to sleep on my desk? Good night, sweetheart 😊 If she stares at me, then I give her the pats and kisses she wants and she happily accepts them. She runs from everyone else because their instinct is to pick her up.

  • I visited a friend who was not the original owner of a cat named Tinkerbelle. As soon as I sat on the floor, Tinkerbelle climbed in my lap. Friend said, "be careful." Tinkerbelle wanted to be petted, but only on certain parts of her body. Up to me to find which parts. She purred continuously, even while scratching and biting me. At one point she rolled over on her back. Friend went, "uh..." I tried to pet her chest. Scratched and bit the hell out of me, before rolling over on her stomach. This continued for about half an hour. Tried to nudge her off my lap. No. So, I stood up. She remained attached, head pointing to the floor, claws dug into one trouser leg. I walked to the door and she let go. Next visit, I wore tougher clothing.

  • Animals act the same way emotionally as humans do, if you got abused or cheated on in the past, from that moment forward, you are no longer as open as you used to be! And it takes time for you to come around, different circumstances and different people react differently towards this, you just have to give them their space.

  • This was great to watch. My two rescue cats will never be so affectionate, as I suspect they were mistreated as kittens. They show lots of affection in their own ways, but can't stand to be picked up. One sleeps on our bed, and loves to have his fur brushed, when he purrs so much. He is also the most curious cat I've ever known, who loves looking on my tablet computer, and hates it when I shut it down. His sister is really affectionate, in that she wants to get on our laps and pummel away, but again, she is quite timid in a lot of ways. This is cats, they are their own thing, don't think you can transform them if they don't want to be.
