Other cats and me.......

Hello every friend.. When mum was on board ship, there was a little puss cat on board for the kiddies. Mum has always loved him and went along to see.. Here he is... Bagpuss.. Mum said he was much bigger than she thought..

Bagpuss entertaining the children... ( and mum )

This next kitty mum met on a visit from her work last week. Mum meets lots of kitties and woofies when she visits people. this one mum said made her feel good. His name is Charlie and he was a rescue cat.. the elderly lady owner had owned him for five years, she told mum that Charlie was lovely but would never let anyone pick him up, and not let anyone stroke his neck or head. The lady though he could have been ill treated. Mum carried on doing her work, all the time talking nonsense to Charlie.. Mum then went up to him slowly and started stroking him.. He let her. Mum slowly worked her hands over him, stroking and talking all the time, she then sat back down and carried on talking. Mum finished what she was doing and then slowly went up to Charlie, she picked him up gently, he let her, she sat down with Charlie on her lap, he let her.. Mum was so pleased.. the lady cried and said she had never seen Charlie so calm and mum must have something.. Mum just was happy and thinks Charlie may be more approachable to the lady, as mum put him on the sofa next to her and he stayed...

Charlie... Sorry for the bad photo's, taken on the phone...

Of course a picture of me.....

Charlie looks like a slightly less floofy version of you GJ! I am glad your mum could help out the lady.

Bagpuss scares me, must be the eyebrows!

It's happy that your mum was able to be nice to Charlie so that now maybe Charlie will be more friendly with his lady owner. But your mum always comes home to her boy, GJ!

Purrs and hugs,

Your mom must be furry special to have Charlie let her pick him up! Kinda like The Cat Whisperer. Our mom is like that too. The ferals who live by our hose come to mom all the time. BagPuss is cute too! The kiddies must've loved him, but we like the last picture the best!!!

Oh that is a wonderful story about Charlie - it made me cry a little because it was so nice. Cats know when someone is a good person - your mom obviously is one!

Both you and Charlie are cuties :) Your Mum knows how to make kitties happy!

There's a guy who looks like that who lives near us; he and I are friends.

We were not so keen on Bagpuss ourselves!

How great that your Mom could comfort Charlie. I've always said that cats can recognize good people.

Charlie looks a fine cat. That was very touching that your mum could communicate trust to him.

CCL Wendy said...

What a wonderful story about Charlie!
Your mum certainly has the touch -- I guess she's a "kitty whisPURRer"!
I hope that Charlie will keep going to his own mama for some affection now that the ice has been broken.

I guess all he needed was some kind words before he let someone pat him.

That Bagpuss is adorable, too! Can't get more red tabby than that!

And of course, Jasper is the most gorgeous of all!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Seems like your special magic rubbed off on your mum! It is so wonderful that she was able to touch the heart of that kitty and make friends. And yes, GJ all that wind was scary!
