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!

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.
