It took four years. Four long, filled with scratches and bite marks on Mommy’s hands and arms, years. Then: without warning, Mama crept into Mommy’s lap and snuggled up. She even started to purr.
Mama still has issues that drive Mommy nuts. She’s still unpredictable. She has some litter box issues. She’s, well, she’s Mama Cat.
These days though, when she sees Mommy sitting at the kitchen table, she slips over and eases into Mommy’s lap. Then she carefully snuggles down and begins to purr. Finally, after four years, we learned that Mama can purr.
While we are making progress with Mama Cat, we know she will always bear the scars and fears of whatever happened to her before she came to Shady Hollow. We will deal with that.
The wonderful thing is that with time and love, she is coming around and is happier than she’s been in a very long time.
