Coco is getting a lot braver, she is out in the open more, she was in the dog bed over the weekend and didn’t even hiss at me, she has sniffed my feet a couple of times and at breakfast and supper time she is getting good at coming and hitting me for food – unfortunately she is a bit aggressive, got lots of little scratches!! She has started making new noises, which are interesting with the Siamese in her, but I can’t interpret if they are good or not!! Chanel is twigging that everytime I touch a bit of fur, she gets a treat, although she much prefers the ‘I’ll tap you and get a treat’ approach!! Last night I got the most touching of fur, as she was that engrossed in trying to catch snow she didn't notice me!!

Tried again with the treat ball, with no luck, although heard it moving at 3am!! Chanel poo'd on the floor in front of me last night, I thought it was Coco. Oddly though, it was a clean litter tray yesterday morning, Chanel wee'd in it when I spent some time with them when I got home, but then wouldn't poo in it!! I do need some more litter, I might try a different brand.

We find that with Barley and Malt - Barley has a tendency to dominate any games, and then malt ends up sitting watching.  What we try to do now is to give Malt some play opportunities when Barley is out, but that's a harder option for you at present given neither Coco or Chanel are outdoor cats.  The puzzle treat ball sounds like a great way to go.

Tried something new last night, which failed – Chanel is so greedy if you throw her a treat then give one to Coco, she’ll gulp hers down and try and pinch Cocos’ which is causing tension, I had a spare treat ball in the cupboard, but she couldn’t figure it out last night!! I left some in it when I went to bed though, so she might have a better idea tonight. Coco has started playing though, mainly with her tail, because Chanel tends to dominate the toys.

Am trying to get to the next stage with Chanel, she has shown how clever she can be- yesterday was trying to get her to eat dreamies off my knee, as soon as I sat down today, she came and sniffed my knee! So of course I got the dreamies out

Yeah - I was surprised Charlie and Will struggle so much - longhaired ginger and longhaired grey?? Funny how some of the ones you think will be easy turn out to be with you a while. First time I took Lucy to the vets, everyone was surprised she had waited 18 months for a home - suspect now they know her better they aren't quite as surprised!!  :shify:

I do understand Des, "I want those pretty kitties." No thought of the cats needs, just window dressing for the home. Usually it's the ones that aren't so good looking for whatever reason that are hard to find good homes for. That is why Sheila contacted me about Pirate, although I think he is a very handsome boy regardless of wonky/missing bits.

Coco was out again last night, Chanel does put her off the biscuit game a lot unfortunately. Convinced her to jump on the den, the first time she hit my hand and got biscuits, the second time she actually licked my fingers!! Couldn’t get her to eat them from my hand though, she much prefers to hit my hand to get them. Chanel was also licking my fingers, but got a bit enthusiastic and nibbled them too!!

Paula, my main concern is how many people are just going to see their pic and enquire without reading what kind of home they need, so we are going to have to do a lot of sifting before we get to home visit stage!! It is ironic that it is the opposite to our normal concerns.

Another good night with them, Coco was out last night, she looked curious when I was tapping my fingers, so I got a bit closer and she came to me and hit my hand, the only downside is that she is a lot hissier when we play the biscuit game on the floor, it’s a bit disconcerting. Both of them did it this morning, Chanel does put Coco off though unfortunately, this morning she was being a right floozy!! Chanel is getting more relaxed, and happier to roll around showing her belly, even though last night I did try and push attention on her – everytime I got the slightest touch of her fur, I gave her a treat, so she has started giving me a sniff, then looking to the treats!!

Had an interesting evening with them last night, Coco was quite spooky and ended up behind the chair when I went to sit with them, I tried the biscuit game, but she was hitting my hand so hard she was sending them flying, and I’m not sure about her sense of smell, she seems to struggle to find one near her paw. Chanel is quite happy to sit on the scratch post at the side of the chair (mainly to see if she can get a treat!!), but runs if you move your hand or look at her too much. At bedtime, she was out in the open again, so I sat down in front of the door, Chanel came over to investigate, and Coco growled!! I started tapping my hand on the floor and Coco got halfway towards me, before Chanel came to sniff my hand and put her off. Then Chanel hit my hand, and looked at the cupboard where the treats live - twice!!

Had an odd weekend with Coco and Chanel, Coco has started sitting in other parts of the room, Sat night she was in front the chair I sit on, so I sat in front of the door, she looked like she was contemplating me, then jumped on the den. I tried to stroke Chanel while giving her her treats, she flew across the room, and Coco flew down hissing and growling, I was scared. Not seen her that protective, especially as at tea time, she’d had a go at Chanel!! Last night I got Chanel to take one of her treats off my knee, then ate a bag of crisps, so she kept trying to get close to me. Then she sat on a cushion sort of opposite me, and chirruped at me. I said something to her, she looked like she was considering it, then chirruped back, did that for about 10 mins!!

Well, I've tried 3 ways, palm up, palm down and wiggling fingers - wiggling fingers gets the best response, but not sure if that is just cos she wants to play with them. I was allowed to sit on the windowsill yesterday while she was on the top den, although when I offered her biscuits, she properly swiped my hand.

Have you tried wiggling fingers as your hand approaches her Desley?  Or is that what you mean by moving your hand?

Billy (RIP gorgeous lad) was also a clever and wary cat even after so many years with us. As long as I didn't look him in da eye and waggled my fingers as my hand approached, he would offer me an upright tail for a back scratch. I imagine you know all the tricks though.

Another breakthrough with Coco last night – I kept putting my hand near her, and then moving it, I can get quite close now, so wanted to praise but she doesn’t seem to like treats, so I thought of offering her some of her biscuits to praise her. She was contemplating them, so I told her she could hit them off my hand if it was easier, and she did!! Admittedly she lost 2 of the 3, so I had to do a second lot, which she also hit off my hand – slight claws involved second time though. She is so clever, although that isn’t always a good thing with nervous cats!!

Well, they met their second visitors yesterday, initially lots of hissing, but we went in at tea time, so tummies overruled fear – I got a quick stroke from Chanel, but poor thing looked so uncomfortable. She did happily play with my friend with the stick toy though. Coco ended up sitting at the side of the chair my friend sat on, she only had a nibble of her tea, as my friend does a lot of hand gestures when talking, Coco kept watching her, but was sat with her legs tucked under her and ears in normal position. This morning was different, Lucy had been hissing at them through the door again, Coco actually popped at me when I went to move her supper bowl, but I got a sneaky stroke of her tail while sorting the litter tray – can’t say she was impressed, but didn’t run away. My friend thinks Coco might be Tonkinese.

Chanel is quite stubborn - will happily sniff my fingers or eat off my hand, but refuses to let me stroke her. Doesn't even let me stroke her with Da Bird. We are going to try and home them together, doubt it will be this side of Christmas

Had a great evening on Wed, a bit hit and miss since then, but that is to be expected, then a good morning today. On Wed, I decided I had to sweep the floor - first time I did this when she couldn't see me, she got really stressed, on wed, she sat on the bottom level of the den watching me - lot of growling going on, but even when I got to the bits near where she was sitting, she was close enough to hit me, but just stayed growling. Tried to give her some temptations for being so good, she did swipe at me, but it's the first time she hasn't drawn blood, and it didn't hurt, as she hadn't used her usual force. Last night however, went to give her a plate of chicken, she hit it so hard it went flying!! This morning, she was growling and moving away from me when I tried to give her her breakfast, but then ate in front of me, and let me top the plate up!!

Used the 'tickling stick' again this morning, Coco bit it a few times but went from lying with ears slightly back to sitting with her ears normal. Chanel however looked incredibly uncomfortable, and moved away, yet in the beginning I had her purring. I'm thinking to stop pushing her, she will happily sniff my fingers and eat from my hand.

Well, I might have had a bit more blood drawn, but a good time. She's more responsive to being touched by the stick than Chanel, so may have had a home. When she Hits, it's definitely a fear reaction rather than aggression

Now I have taken the carrier out, Coco is settling so not giving them the scratching post back. Got very close to Coco without growling last night, Chanel pinched the biscuits from my hand though. Made Chanel have a stroke again this morning, she was less amenable, but happily ate some of her breakfast from my hand and I got some strokes then

Well, that went a lot better than I expected - I chased her round the room a few times, then she went in the top box - when I went to put my hand in, she swiped my arm, so I have two little claw marks. I then decided to wrap her in a blanket, but when I turned round to get one, she ran out and ended up in the igloo bed, so I picked it up at an angle, and put it in the carrier!! When we got to the vets, we just pulled out the igloo bed, and she was the meekest I've ever seen her, so we just peeled the bed back enough to get at her neck, and injected her, then used a pill popper for a wormer all the time letting me stroke her. Last night I hand fed her her full pouch of Whiskas, that was interesting, as she likes food in gravy. I decided to try and pin her for a stroke again this morning, she was less resistant, and ended up on the top den, so Coco was watching her have a stroke, then she stayed there while I got her a treat, and took those from my hand. She may have some ragdoll in her, she has lovely silky fur. In the flesh, their eyes look yellow but a lot paler than Lucy's, and occasionally see a blue tint in Chanel's - I did think all colourpoints had blue eyes though
