I had noticed how one of my cats, Lilly, has become so loving and wanting to curl up against me and gives a little meow when I go to go out, Lilly belonged to a Workmate who was going to give her to a charity which I had heard if the cat was not homed within a short period of time, they put them down.
Even though I had eighteen cats at the time, I said one more will not make much difference I picked her up when I dropped him off, he mentioned she has become destructive and is chewing the wires and doing so much damage and runs and hides all the time.
I slowly introduced her into the family and before long they all had their pecking order and knew who was boss, within a few weeks with patting and reassuring her, her fur started to grow back, my friend noticed the difference in her, there are plenty of toys to play with and the friendship grew with the cats getting up to mischief and playing chase every now and then.
Lilly would shy away when he came in and, as with most cases of cats that I have taken in, they hide and come out when the person who had them has gone. Cats fear of going back to where they come from if they were not contented and happy or had a bad experience.
Lilly, like all the other cats, enjoyed their treats and attention they are all individual and like different amount of attention, every night Lilly jumps up on the bed and sleeps into me and comes up for the odd cuddle she purrs and is very relaxed.
A few years ago, like many of the cats I have, two black cats were dumped one was very nasty and growled a lot I did not see him, he was at my friend’s place the other cat very calm we managed to get his trust but his legs were giving way, I researched and put him on some herbal treatment to get rid of the blood clots which goes out when they pee, I had him neutered and chipped and within a few weeks he was a picture of health, he has never looked back, because of his misfortune I called him Lucky. He is so loving and beautiful everyone now loves him he has he most largest golden eyes, he loves to sit against me while I am working and sleeps in my arms at night, his brother we are sure has passed on, I believe the only reason this cat was nasty was because of the pain he was in.
Just like us humans, acceptance of who we are is so important, to an animal knowing you are loved and cared for means so much to them, I am very rich with all the love I receive I am never lonely and they accept me for who I am, when I see the difference in what I do to the lives of the ones I have saved the pleasure and fulfilment is so great, over the past few years I have lost a few to age, I know they are with me in their spirit and what is important these cats left the world knowing they were truly loved and accepted.
