Tonight I had some canned salmon and thought maybe the cats would like some. Momma cat ran when I went out but Blackie came to see what I had. I put the salmon on my palm and waited. He came over and ate all the salmon and when he was finished he licked my hand. I was so amazed. This is a cat that wouldn't come near a human and he's come this far. It was a very special event for me.
How wonderful for you. It takes patience and lots more patience. It wasn't long after Shadow was eating out of my hand, that I was able to pet him. Celebrate all of the little (actually not so little!!!) accomplishments.
