Cats with PTSD

I had to fend for myself in the streets since I was tiny, and then forever because I remained a very small cat. Now 3 years after being adopted, mom says I'm doing much better with my PTSD symptoms. Right now we're sitting on the floor playing with a new mouse toy, and the kitten is outside and Princess is in her room, so I have mommy all to myself. A rare moment to treasure. All is quiet and there's nothing and nobody to worry about. I can't recall another moment so peaceful in my life. Nothing to be scared of... I check and check again, but nothing suspicious... I don't know how to handle not being scared, not having to be on the defensive, looking scary. It's strange, it's making me really scared! I must find something to be afraid of soon so I can stop being scared!

Dear Nikita, Duchess of Meow!
You are with a Forever Mommy now, who loves you very, very much!

And with her continued help, you will blossom into the Proper, Regal Cat, you are meant to be!

Congratulations and Blessings, for finding such a wonderful Human!

Nikita, I look forward to seeing some more updates from you!
Sincerely,
Mr. Jazz,
A rescued former stray, myself!

Hi Mr Jazz,

Thank you so much for your kind words! Mom got really angry at me a while ago because I attacked Princess. I just don't know what gets into me sometimes, I'm sure a cat is out to get me, I attack, then I realize my mistake and flee in fear... I don't want to be like this and pick up fights, but it's stronger than me. I've learned to look before I attack something that moves near me, I've learned that not everything moving next to me is dangerous, so I hardly ever attack mom anymore. I still have some more way to go, though.

Nikita, I am SO glad you are able to enjoy a few minutes of bliss. The world is a dangerous place so you are right to worry, but you can rest easy in mommy's company! She will always take good care of you!!

Coco, no please. I have enough with The Little Prince, mom's latest addition to the household! He's almost 1 year old now, and as obnoxious as they come. He likes to play rough and doesn't get it that a former stray with PTSD doesn't find that enjoyable! Mom never wanted a kitten, but took pity on him in the streets and now we're stuck with this hyperactive thing.
