Spookie the last feral to decide to become a house cat despite sleeping on the bed and the couches has finally decided I may stroke her ..... its been 18 months ... persistant flea bag

Last night she curls up on the couch some distance from me .. and I put my hand underneath some paper to wiggle my fingers at her and she started to look very intrested in this game , swatting me etc ..I lost interest when she started to play too rough and this morning while she was eating her brekkies I just stood and stroked her and for the first time she tolerated it ....

Mind you the look on her face made me think I was actually abusing her , but no matter she will get used to it..... at least now she tolerates it.

The is the same cat I can stroke in the dark and she loves it .... silly girl she is a bit confused

Awwww, that's so sweet. I guess "never give up" really applies here! You have the patience of a saint, Carol.
