Monday Meowsie News You Don’t Wanna Miss
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Anyone who has followed my blog knows that I usually a ghost when strangers, even repeat guests, come to my home. Oh, and to be clear, I am talking about bipeds.
My news today is all about my continuing learning to trust humans after what appears to have been as many as the first five years of my life having to endure unknown trauma at the hands of humans.
Do you remember when Cuzin Leo lived with me? See! You do remember him!
Well his Dad Dave, now my Uncle Dave, has become the best of friends with Mom L and Dad P. So this is about Uncle Dave’s recent visit to my castle yesterday.
Personally I cannot believe I did what I did. No siree!! I kind’a out did myself so to speak. You see, I started to try to slip past Uncle Dave when he entered my office. I was trying to scoot past him by going under that cute bench I have in my office. And then Uncle Dave did something that caught my attention.
He…did…not…leave! He just bent over and offered his hand for me to sniff and he spoke “cat” language to me. AMAZING!! And before I knew what I was doing, I moved out from under my bench and gave Uncle Dave a sort’a twirl around to see if he was really serious about giving me some pets. I quickly moved just a teensy bit outside of where he placed his hand. And still, he did not move. Then I thought—”Hmmmm…perhaps I outta give him a chance to touch my luxurious gray furs.”
So I circled around and indeedy do—there his hand was—not moving one bit!
Then I did the most unthinkable thing!! Yes I did! I cannot deny the photos.
Yep, there you have it for all to see. My Elevator Butt Disease fully displayed. And I can only tell you this—I LUVLUVLUV’d it!!
The longer Uncle Dave stayed on my level the more I invited him to give me more attention. I actually started giving him my very special “Miss Savvy Do head butts”!
Then I just gave up and asked him to give me his very best chin rubs and ear scritches.
Kitties and woofies, I must admit. Uncle Dave won me over big time. His understanding of how to approach a cat, especially a Princess Cat like me, was something for the history books.
I simply could not stop myself and threw myself into my form of “wild abandonment” into his gentle, caring chin rubs.
There you have it my loyal furriends. My latest and simply greatest progress in allowing another human beyond my Mom L and Dad P to enjoy contact with my soft gray furrs and I even allowed Uncle Dave to hear my loudest purrrrs ever!!
Have you ever feared humans so much that you are uneasy about allowing them to touch your furrs? How have you overcome your fear? I sure could use some coaching my pals.
PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
