We have a Breakthrough !!!!

As some of you know, we adopted Scooter about a year ago and he really isn't much of a cuddler. He'll let us pet him, but is not a lap cat and when he sleeps with me, its "usually" at the foot of the bed by my feet.

We think he may have been abused at his previous home as he was abandoned and found on the streets. I also noticed that anytime I got the broom out to sweep, he would cower (sp?) in the corner and howl or run like a crazed kitty through the house. He doesn't do that anymore

Well this morning (mind you at 4am), I woke up to what I thought was Freaky laying on my chest purring .. but Nooooooooooooo it was Scooter !!!!! This is the first time he has ever done this and it was the best way to wake up EVER (even though it was a tad bit early) !!! I hope this means that is he finally feeling comfortable with us and beginning to at least trust me

Re: We have a Breakthrough !!!!

That's so great! It's amazing how gratifying the little stuff is with them, isn't it. I hope Scooter continues to warm up....

That was funny about him being afraid of the broom. It reminded me that Murphy was very afraid of it too until about 3-4 months after he was with us. Suddenly it was a fun thing that he rushes about and bats, like he's playing hockey with it. When I lean over to sweep stuff into the dust pan, he runs into the dust pan like he wants to be swept up too. Funny goof.

I can imagine how that felt when you woke up to that content purring. Congratulations.

Re: We have a Breakthrough !!!!

That's such a great feeling! I remember the first time Cleo laid down on my chest and purred. I didn't even mind the drool dripping down on my neck.

Yay, Scooter!
