HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Most of you who have known me since I started my blog in 2012, know that I was afraid of people and other cats even at five years old. I won’t ever know what happened to me before being dropped in the night drop box at the county kill shelter. All I know is that I feared humans and other cats. Fortunately, I was pulled at the last minute by someone who fostered me and then I was admitted to a no kill rescue.
Dad P noticed me right away when he and Mom L started volunteering in December 2011 at Contra Costa Humane Society’s Kitty Corner. And I have been with them since then. My recovery progress from former trauma has been slow but steady. And I am proud to share a little bit of another step forward.
We have just moved to a different home, but I have settled in really easily. Unlike the last time we had to move. Progress.
I always share the couch with Mom L at night and I usually lie at one end and she sits on the other. Just a couple of nights ago I changed around…and moved close enough to her, and facing her, to encourage her to give my head and face a little massage.
ahhh…that’s perfect Mom L
Next thing I knew…I had completely relaxed my whole head and fell asleep with her holding my head.
Of course Mom L saw a ‘photo opportunity’…and when she removed her hand from my head…I never even moved…
Safely snoozing away
Mom L just could not help herself. The next day was gonna be my time to join Sunday Selfies Blog Hop over at my pals from The Cat On My Head. And, I had not yet taken my ‘selfie’ for the blog post. Normally, what Mom L did next would have driven me immediately from the couch out of fear of being hurt or scared…but instead I hung in and let her take several ‘selfie’ photos of me with our iPhone.
It’s OK Mom L, click away…I trust you
And that is my small but important recovery progress I want to share with you, my caring readers. I just went back to sleep.
Trust…a wonderful feeling.
PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
