Re: anybody out there.....Pam

Seamus came to me at about 5 months but the rest were all around a yr old when they showed up. I've always wanted a kitten but I think the older ones are more my speed anyway. I beleive it is possible to bond with most cats of any age IF they have had some people interaction at a young age, which is NOT to say it can't happen w a feral cat, just IMO a little less likely.

Seamus appeared to have been from a no-or-little human contact litter. To this day he prefers being on his own. Yes, he asks for a belly rub once in a while and enjoys being around and getting a little attention, but he's just not really into it. BH, whom I suspect of having either no human contact or bad experiences early on, has surprised me though. He has turned into a lapcat. Jack was a people cat from the get-go, and much more so after being treated for Bartonelosis. Slugger is an enigma. He was a real tough guy when he showed up. Turned into a real weenie after being neutered. Scared of his shadow. At various times a lapcat, but mostly just sits alone in another room.

Of course, it's all been guesswork. I don't really know what they went through b4 they showed up here.

Hi Pam, congratulations on the youngster. By 9 months they are a bit more
calm, so doubt you'll have anyone climbing your walls, etc.  I'm  sure you
will both take to each other right away.....after getting to know one another. The hardest thing is not to compare the new cat with the Sugar, I found that
it is easier to bond if you keep an open mind and heart.  I know  what you
mean about expecting Sugar to be around for much longer. I felt the same about
Flaksey, it was such a sudden shock, and I felt robbed of many  more years
that we could have had. Time and the new kitty will definitely help, although
Sugar will stay in your heart forever, no matter what.

Oh my gosh.....Pam, you are so right about the plants.  After weeks  and
months of everyday rain, those plants that could tolerate that much rain were thriving, but now with this heat and burning sun, and no rain.....the plants are
just having an awful time.

Good luck and congratulations, Pam.

angel of death this  summer.  Not a good feeling at all.
