There I was, sitting on the couch with my Nahum parked next to me, innocently catching up on blogs.
Up jumped Rose - she parked herself right in Nahum's fluff, her way of asking for cuddles.
Of course Nahum obliged, he can't seem to say no to her.
Then the most bizarre thing happened. She stood in my lap and I petted her.
It was like she forgot she was afraid of humans.
She stood there for pets and soaked them in. Is this Rose?!
She loved it! I loved it!
Then she needed some more Nahum cuddles.
What a week!
What a week for feline therapy! So happy for you.ReplyDelete
Wow is right. I'd be breaking out the champagne in celebration--way to go, Rose!ReplyDelete
Nahum must be a Valium Cat! Paws crosses that this wasn't a one-off.ReplyDelete
Some kitties are snooze magnets :)ReplyDelete
Awww that is so precious.ReplyDelete
That is so wonderful and we can feel your heart smiling!ReplyDelete
Sounds s if Nahum, by his closeness, gave Rose the confidence she needed to ask for and get some loving. Hope this is the start of something new for her. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JosetteReplyDelete
Oh this warms my heart! Rose just needed Nahum to feel safe!ReplyDelete
Once in awhile Spitty does something like this and I think I've gone to Narnia or something. But then he a-members again that I am his enemy and reality snaps into focus again, MOL!ReplyDelete
that is just fabulous! Your title couldn't be more appropriate "A blooming Rose" love it!ReplyDelete
I was sitting watching TV the other day when a cat climbed up on me for patting. I was patting it before I realized it was Eli, the kitty who spent years running from us due to being medicated as a kitten.. so I can totally appreciate the beauty and wonder of this postReplyDelete
That is fabulous! Pets is always good!ReplyDelete
they do surprise us, don't they. You have won her over. Love Helen, Darcy and BingleyReplyDelete
What a wonderful post! It does seem as though Nahum is a valium kitty. Let's hope Rose comes back for more.ReplyDelete
It's so special when the Shy Ones come out & say hello!ReplyDelete
Been over at Wikiepdia 'feral cat' page lately? Appears to be written from a Bird Lover's strong point of view. Wiki is open source, I'd encourage folks look&edit.
