  • Cats just are, well, ya know, but that face, is worthy of a caption contest or a gif or something

  • Wow she is a beautiful Kitten./ Cat. She loves marking herself all over you by rubbing up against your hair and where ever she is claiming you for hers. Female kittens are very often don't touch me I will go to you when I am totally ready. I guess I know as it is my experience after looking after 40+ Cats in a very short time. 5 years to be exact. The female is always very finnicky and males are your very affectionate cat almost all of the time. They will run to you hop on you for loads of loving pets and so forth. any way She is adorable and I am glad she has taken a shine to you she looks or reminds me of part Siamese because of her eyes. Keep her healthy and you will have her for a very long time. Bravo.! Thanks for sharing your story.

  • My Emma! As a baby she was kicked because she was peeing everywhere -oh, we didn't take her to the vet! Why she was peeing was because she had an UTI! When I saw the blood in her urine, I understood. Two weeks of antibios, and she has never peed in the house again, even though I have a litter tray. It took her 7 years to trust me. At 11, it's been 5 weeks since she cuddles up to me and puts her head on my hand.

  • I have a stray cat which took her 3 years to trust me. Occasionally she still bites me when things go her way. It looked like she suffered from a kind of PTSS. Some gestures triggered her to bite me or being very scared. She wanted me to comb her head, but she didn't me to touch her body. It took all these years to slowly make her trust me. But every pet deserves a chance. Cats like routine. Pet them when you are sitting on that specific chair for example. Then they learn to predict what you are going to do. The cat in my story knows it's petting and combing time on my bed every time I go to bed and wake up. She really meows like she wants me to go to bed.

  • cats are kings. they are lions. they are just smaller versions of lions. so they get defensive when you don't treat them like royalty. then they will come around when they deem it necessary for the good of the realm.

  • It's the reason why shelters label some cats as "not adoptable", they know most people just won't leave the cat alone until it's ready to socialize. I'm used to distant cats, they almost always just need space and when they are given that space, they finally feel comfortable and it ends up just like this video shows. Believe me, 95% of people don't understand that and just follow their selfish need of attention.

  • Oh, it clears the cobwebs on my long condemned heart... My girl was a... How shall we say "Vigilante Rescue". It did take her a long time to recover from the abuse with which she was put through. Today, she's doing better. Still a little "grabby" with food sometimes, but nevertheless a lot better; and a number one snuggler. =^_^=

  • The ladies emotional intelligence is at the top of the charts to win the cat over. It must have poorly treated to be that way or semi feral. Either way well done and it was a joy to watch. Thankyou.

  • My little honey took a year but she eventually went from running from me if I even shifter my weight to me being able to pick her up and flip her all around, and she didn't struggle. She knew she was safe :)

  • Yes! Many ppl Today “think” they are so grand because THEY love animals. But when you see the poor chihuahua STUFFED into a big purse all day so the Koo Koo owner can get the attention they are so Needy for you know they using them as a toy, not a companion with needs & reciprocal love. Im glad this woman understands love & respect! That was beautiful! Years ago i used to take in ferrel cats & they were the most loyal family members! Full of love 💕.

  • I feel ALL cats want that love and human connection. Some just don't know it at first and some have to get over past trauma or abusive treatment first. Beautiful little cat. I have one with eyes similar to that, they go up at the outside corners pretty much. Makes her look kinda like a drawing of an alien. So I call her alien eye Heidi.

  • We took in a very mistreated cat that someone dump in our neighborhood. Theirs was one mean cat! For some reason she took to my daughter then after several months to my husband and after four years finally to me. I knew she had been most likely locked up in a cage all day and only let out between 6-8 in the evening. That’s when she was particularly mean. It took a long time for her to realize the only time we put her in a cage was to take her to the vet. Our vet had never seen anything like her before. I wouldn’t give up and eventually she realized. She was in a good home. She was the best cat we ever had. She live 15 years and two years ago we had to put her down. We miss her more than ever.

  • Love the grumpy expression on her face! She is beautiful. It is that way sometimes when trying to connect with a cat. I have worked with dozens of feral cats over the years. Some were okay being pursued and others wanted to decide for themselves. Right now I have two sisters I am working with. One sister (Bootsie) was easy and did not mind me working at it. The other sister (Socks) is still not letting me near her but she hangs around closer to me more often now. I am so glad one has only little white booties and the other has a long white "sock" on one leg or I would not be able to tell them apart. - Heidi

  • A month? A month is so little, most cats I had took WAY MORE than that. But that's a nice video, and giving space and letting the animal do what they need is what most people don't get / dislike about cats. It's not about the human, it's about the connection.

Top marks must be given to the lady who filmed this video and the method that she chose to turn Barbara's life around for the better and just look at the outcome - truly heaven sent.
