To Love With Love

    1. I”m in Love too, so don’t feel so bad. He is precious just precious. I’ve worked years for him to trust me and for him to come willingly to me is a major feat. When he walks towards me without fear and lets me pick him up with no struggle and again with no fear puts my heart right up in my throat. We snuggle, he comes in close and comes under my chin into my neck. I kiss him and I sing to him, rocking him as I do. He eats it up like no tomorrow! As for me to disturb him his sweetness I read so loudly so it was safe for me to come in. This is how he looks at me all the time, and for me to get him to look into the camera for all to see is again another major feat. Now where he is in his feral mode I cannot even get near him much less get eye contact. Really! Much Love, dear friend. I am having a rather busy day and have some situations that need attending. I’m not here much today at WP. ❤

    1. And then some! Oh this cutie put a deep gouge on my right hand last night all because dummy Mom didn’t realize the plastic she was holding would scare him. As I went to pick him up he heard the rustle of the plastic and freaked. Lesson learned. He scares easily being a skittish feral. Yet he can be such a loving cuddly little Joy. 🙂 ❤

    1. Oh don’t let that innocent look fool you! He can be a stinker at times! I’m only allowed to get near him when he wants. He is a feral and has maintained much of those qualities which I have truthfully encouraged. I allow my cats the freedom (to a point) to be who they are. His spirit is sweet and he gives the best cuddle hugs when I do hold him. Let’s face it. I’m a goner. LOL 🙂 ❤

      1. Most definitely! He’s like Hemi here at the Hotel Thompson. Hemi knows he rules the roost. We steer clear of him… well I do because he likes to whack my butt with his huge paws – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    1. You are welcome, Jet. I get this type of Love all day long. My fur family means the world to me. I try to share some of what I have when I “think” about it. I get so focused on landscape or flowers I tend to overlook my babies. LOL ❤

    1. Whispers is a very sweet natured boy and when he does look at me fully with Love and trust in his eyes, he just melts my heart. He came to us barely alive, a feral cat whose brother actually carried in his mouth to get him here to us. Our reputation seems to be known because Whispers is not the only one who ended up here barely alive. For years he shied of me and just lately (6 years later) he has decided to trust me. I cannot describe to you the feeling of getting the trust of a true wild animal. 🙂 ❤

      1. You want to know something? I look to my animals in how they react whenever someone comes to our home. How they react tells me everything I need to know about those people. I trust their reaction more then I do human reaction. Nope, you cannot cheat an animal. They know and I mean they know.

    1. Yes he is beautiful, I so do agree with you, Marissa. His markings and his shape are stunning. To win his trust (fully) after 6 years is quite the super achievement! He is darling the way we have connected and how when I have to pick him up we have a little routine where he is “safe”. Means the world to this little guy that I respect his boundaries. I just clipped his nails today because he got my right hand good 2 nights ago. Nope. Those claws can be deadly and I am very firm on keeping damage to a minimum in this house so yes I clip their nails. I have one, Cuddles who will not allow me to do so but I have trained him to be responsible with his nails, and he is. I still am very aware however, of how fast his right paw is and make sure when I am near that he cannot swing. I have permanent scars from this guy. LOL ❤

      1. Even clipping nails does not prevent them from scratching my furniture. I’ve given up on that one, belive me. I bought my “dream” furniture years ago before cats, and now that same furniture is very beat up. Many times I’ve told myself LOVE is what matters not furniture. And today finally it doesn’t matter that my furniture is ruined. That’s from a day in the life of me. 🙂 ❤

      2. Oh yeah, for sure. I’ve had cats and kids and I’ve definitely figured out that love is more important…I’ve also figured out that I probably shouldn’t buy nice furniture until the kids move out!

    1. Kathy, I know how to read my cats. My face is very close to all of their faces when they give me their permission. Hubby right now is working with Cuddles, teaching him it is OK to have faces close. Hubby is very nervous doing this because Cuddles is known to swipe with razor nails. I would not suggest tanyone do what we do but our cats with us have a much different relationship then most cats do with their owners. If you read the comment about my hand, that was MY mistake not knowing Whispers would freak out by the noise of the plastic I had in my hand. I was going to do a hot wax treatment to relieve my hand pain but that went out the window with this gouge. Now that I have a scab forming on my hand, I can do the wax tonight. 🙂 ❤

      2. Whispers many times still is very very skittish. Now I know NOT to have plastic or anything, for that matter, in my hands when I go to pick him up. One of these days I will try to video how he very quickly walks towards me when he is excited. It is so cute the way his head and body sways. Just adorable!! ❤

    1. Thank you, Holly. Whispers is absolutely precious no doubt. One of these days I will have to write a post about his unbelievable story on how he came to us. SO glad you embraced the Love from Whispers. 🙂 ❤

      1. I love animals as you know Amy, they depend on us, the creatures that we have domesticated and so many times people use them and torture them. A society is judged by the way we treat our animals…as are individuals. If we would love unconditionally as they do such a lovely world this would be.

      2. I question many times why I do what I do, Holly, for in doing what I do, I sacrifice a lot of my life regarding especially my photography and living the “good life” …. which I could IF I did not have these cats in my life. The answer I receive when I seek one is just this …. I have chosen this circumstance in my life and to treat these animals with explicit LOVE, caring for them around the clock sometimes and as I do I am radiating that energy out into this world to bring Justice to how horrible animals have been treated. In other words my Love is contributing to all the other people loving their animals and as we do a crescendo builds to which some day it will tip and animals will once again be held in high esteem. THAT is truly what I believe. ❤

      3. I can relate to sacrificing for one’s pet, my baby is so needy, he grieves and won’t eat if I leave him, so he goes every where with me.

  2. Yep, my heart melts. What a beautiful cat. Recently we had to say goodbyes to two of our family cats. They both had a kidney failure and there was nothing we could do to help them anymore. Luckily, I still have my beloved Leo (a rescue cat) to brighten up my days. Cats are so special creatures. ❤

    1. We too had two losses recently and it just about broke my Heat, Noora. I have yet to write a memorial on Petals about my Karma. I don’t know if I can. Kidney failure is so ugly and I have seen my share of it. No matter how hard I worked or helped, there was nothing I could do to save my babies. I am so sorry for your loss. Believe me I truly understand!! BIG (((HUGS))) ❤

      1. Thank you, Amy! They lived at my Mom’s, but she’s basically our neighbor, so I got to see and cuddle them often. I feel so sad for my Mom because her house is empty now. She’s not ready to adopt a new family member yet.
        I’m deeply sorry for your losses as well. Big hugs back at you, dear Amy! ❤
