Monday Meowsie News: Kit Katie’s Progress


It has been a while since I updated you all about KK’s progress toward revealing her REAL SELF. And in the last six weeks she has been making leaps toward sharing with all of us just who Miss KK really is!

It all started with Dad P spending time at night with KK, after playing, just brushing her and petting her. She usually retreated to her favorite “posing bench” you can see in the background. But now she let’s Dad P brush and pet her at night very close to it. This was a huge step! And boy does she ever have a purr motor!!!!

Then KK  discovered who much she luvluvluvs one of our new soft blankies hand knitted by Miss Peggy Martin. Mom L put the pink one on the bottom of the coffee table one night and BANG!!! KK was the first one to discover just how yummy soft that blankie is.

The next “oh my gosh” moment with KK is how much she lets Dad P and now even Mom L pet her, brush her in the morning when we are all enjoying our special “morning rituals” together. KK is bonding very fast now to Dad P. Mom L at first felt a bit left out, but then they talked about KK’s past and both realized that the hoarding situation she came from was a woman’s apartment. Who knows, maybe KK has to create a new trust in human females? She sure is doing that now with Mom L!!

Notice how KK cleans her paw, then her face while Dad P is brushing her with her new slicker brush!! Too cute!!

The really WOW!!! moment in KK’s progress came just last week when, for the very first time ever, she hoped up on Dad P’s recliner and joined him for his nightly ice cream treat. TKS is always there for her little licks from Dad P’s finger, but that night, KK followed after TKS and made herself at home.

First she hopped up, then she marked Dad P’s reading light and finally she inquired as to just what was he eating and could she have some!!!

KK’s latest is that she has followed that Miss Peggy blankie to the back of the couch where Mom L placed it. KK has never walked nor slept on the back of the couch like TKS does.

I hope you are as thrilled with KK’s progress as we are. She is so close to revealing her REAL SELF!!! Stick around and enjoy her progress!

    I’m glad that KK is feeling so comfortable. Now that she knows what ice cream is, I’m sure she’ll be back for more.

    Good for Katie ! Your folks have done a lot of work to help her. And we have only heard good things about those “Peggy Blankets.

  8. A thought about being afraid. Harvey would not go near Paul for several years so we assume as you did it was past history that drove the fear. Bit by Bit, month by month and year by year Harvey grew in confidence and over the past 18 months he actually stood on Paul while Paul was asleep and woke him up with a sneeze! Kite will get there, she has the most amazing people to inspire her trust.

  9. We’re so glad Katie is doing so well!

  10. Paws up, Katie! This is awesome!

  11. Good going, Katie! My Mina is making progress like you are. After about 3 years here, she now begs for treats several times a day from both me and my son, knows the sound of the car horn when my son comes home, walks around on the floor, sits in the window to birdwatch, and even goes upstairs to spend time with the other 5 cats in my son’s room. It sometimes takes a long time for a nervous cat to relax and normalize.
