Twiggy

It is true, “we” do not adopt cats, they adopt “us”.

I am most pleased to report that Twiggy is looking a good deal better than last year. She is wintering well and has gained weight, her coat even looks somewhat shinier.

As some may be aware, Twiggy is VIRTUALLY  blind as a bat. WITH Cataracts in BOTH eye’S. i FAIL TO UNDERSTAND JUST HOW SHE SURVIVES IN HER TWILIGHT WORLD . I do believe i am developing a soft spot for her.  Specially when I see her like this, sitting up like a little rABBIT. PEERING THROUGH MY WINDOW. i WONDER JUST WHAT SHE SEES. i IMAGINE A FOGGY FADED FIGURE AS i WALK BY,,,,, IS ALL.

Twiggy still will not allow me to get too close to her. But will tolerate me walking passed her while she is eating. I feel if she could actually see me, then she may be more trusting toward me.  

Below you see her waiting at the back door for her breakfast.  Mmmm.. shall have to get the  power hose out soon by the look of the algae on the paving stones.  AFTER ALL SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER.

  4. I absolutely love everything about this relationship: the slowly building trust, twigs’ strong lifeforce overcoming her physical challenges, and your acceptance/compassion in dealing with all of the above. Seriously, Kenny these two Twigs posts may be the most beautiful story I’ve read in ages! Her body language in the pictures says it all.

    • Hi Karen, Yes you are spot on, it is the gaining of her “trust” thing. Without that, I don’t have a cat in hell’s chance of her ever eating from my hand. “That is my goal”
      I trust all things in the big garden are growing profusely and in abundance. 🙂 I shall be hopping across the pond to take a look for myself very soon !!!

  5. Lovely to see Twiggy is doing so well Kenny and she hisses I think more for her defence mechanism than At You…. Good to see she is eating well and knows when and where to come for her breakfast..
    Glad she adopted YOU! she knew what she was doing, and even though she cannot see, she senses she is in safe hands.. 🙂

    • I remembered you asked about her Sue,so thought it was time to update her story. As you have seen she is doing fine. When she is eating i can walk within inches of her nose. But if i attempt to walk behind her, then she turns ,blunders through my legs and out through the door. 🙂
