Realised yesterday that something Coco did on Sat night was actually quite a big thing – she went and sat on the floor near the door, then laid on her side and started cleaning herself, showing her belly in the process. I commented on what a nice belly it was, she briefly stopped and looked at me, but then decided cleaning herself was more important. You can buy silicone grooming things that wrap round scratching posts, am going to buy one of those when I get paid. If that doesn’t work, then I’ll get an arch, but I am running out of floor space! Was at the vets with Lucy last night, so registered them – the vet overhead and asked if I’d finally caved in, so told her I didn’t really have much choice, can’t foster cats when you don’t volunteer for the charity! She agreed that it isn’t ideal to keep them confined, but then when I showed her the pic of Coco twelve months apart, she did agree it doesn’t look like they are bothered by it, and maybe in 5 years I’ll be able to stroke them, although it may be grudgingly. I just don’t know what I will do if they show signs of being bothered by being confined. I was saying that Chanel will happily rub my legs, purr when she sees me, shows her belly, but then pulls away from contact, she said she’s just odd, I said ‘well, she is my cat, would you expect anything different?’

Yes, I thought that when I did it Sue, you don’t always see it day to day, but that really is proof of how much Coco has come on, it may not have been enough for them to be tame enough for a ‘normal’ home but then things happen for a reason, and keeping these two means I’m not feeling the loss of my voluntary work the same, as they are keeping my routine, and they are my new ‘project’. I’m still hoping it is the right decision for them though. I told Coco what Gill said and that it would be fantastic if in years they were more like normal cats, but if they never improve from this, that is equally fine by me. She considered it and then ate from my hand.

Desley, in terms of your comment:  "I do hope I get to see them grow in confidence......" the proof is right there in front of all our eyes.  I suspect it's harder for you to see, as you're living it, day by day, but there's no doubting that these two have come on leaps and bounds since you took them in.

Managed to do this, a comparison between when they first came and a year on, the Sept 17 pic is the first time I saw Coco not in hiding, massive difference in her. Now she even asks for things (play, reading, treats!).

Thanks Tab, I hope you are right! It is strange having young cats, but they do fit under the ‘hard to home’ criteria. I do hope I get to see them grow in confidence, someone on CC said that maybe now the decision is made and the paperwork done that I have relaxed and that is why there has been an improvement – plus I now have more time after quitting my voluntary work. The girls amused me last night, then Lucy was being daft, it made me think that all 3 have ended up with me because they have issues that make them hard to home, but I’m lucky to have them. Yes, my neighbour has one too. You are more than welcome to come and meet them. It is odd not having to get insurance quotes, they are the first in years that haven’t had insurance. Finally got a pair of them together, you can’t tell on this but Chanel is purring – only being a slight floozy though.

Has someone else on your street got a catio too?
I'm sure I saw one when walking past the other week

Slightly late, but paperwork has been signed, so the girls are officially mine, so let’s hope it was the right decision for them! Just waiting for the microchip details to be done. Chanel has been different since, not sure if it is co-incidence or not, but she keeps being a floozy, rolling over to show her belly, and stretching her paws out, although I’m not allowed to try and touch her back. She often gazes at me and purrs, which is lovely, and she has started to get really affectionate when I’m doing their food, rubbing against my leg, this morning she forgot herself and actually laid on my foot before realising and jumping up! Yesterday Coco was in the catio after I’d finished cleaning and I always give them treats, I put my hand through the window to put them on the shelf and she didn’t freak out, just watched me, then I heard her eating them when my back was turned.  Not sure I ever shared this very first picture of Coco, while she was still at the rescue, but she is barely recognisable! They do seem happy and content with what they have, although Chanel doesn’t really know any different, and this may be the best home Coco has ever had. Chanel is looking quite scruffy though, her ruff seems massive and she doesn’t seem to groom it that well. She has started developing matts since going outside, luckily she has very silky fur so they drop out quite easily

Took their beds out to wash ready to go with the new ones for Christmas, luckily one didn't fit in the machine, so they had to share it, poor things.  :rofl: Never mind, tomorrow they will have 5 between them - they aren't spoiled though. It looks like Chanel is thinking 'ooh, is she going to feed us' while Coco is thinking 'god, she's back again!'  :shify:

Gill, Chanel would definitely agree with Lupin about how to eat treats – it baffles me that out of the two, Coco is more receptive to eating from your hand, Chanel prefers to hit it from your hand to eat on the floor! Does show that she has had a home at some point

Not sure I would call Chanel clever Paula, but she is very cheeky! Coco has made the decision about the window, after I’d shut the window before leaving for work once or twice, she twigged what was happening, and 3 times now I’ve popped in before work and she has shot into the catio to prevent me from shutting it, so I won’t try that again, she’s made her feelings clear! So despite being 1 outside, the window was left open. She was very well behaved when my neighbour took the builder in to check the damp, she did growl when he got near the window, however she took it out on me, I got hissed, popped and growled at! Gill, she likes treats, but clearly doesn’t think she should eat them off my hand, even though she has no issue eating biscuits off my hand!

Yeah, odd that she doesn't mind getting that close to me when she wants playtime!! Mind you last night I was trying to get her to stop pinching the rainbow cord, and did get a few touches of her ear! Realised this weekend they have lots of treats, so decided to hand feed Coco some of those rather than her supper biscuits - she refused to move! Went to her with them, she looked at my hand, then the bowl as if to say 'not what I normally get', so put the treats down and got her some biscuits, she happily came over to eat some, then tried the treats again and got a 'for heavens sake mother, they aren't what I have' kind of look! Night after I tried mixing them together, she picked out the treats and then spat them out!! So all 3 are very clever cats, poor me!!  :rofl: Chanel shot out in the catio again while I Was cleaning, so got wet through, Coco didn't bother this week.

Yes, I'm so proud of them. This morning when I first opened the window a flock of birds flew past, they dived out! Then they went in the catio as I was cleaning the room, it was wet and windy, Chanel hated it! One shelf was wet and one was dry, you can imagine which one they chose! Was a bit concerned about Chanel, she ended up cowering behind Coco and retreating into herself,  luckily deli catz brought her round. She wouldn't let me help dry her, her tail looks fluffy again, trying to get her to show her belly to check that, I really hope she doesn't Matt- my friend commented last week how good her fur was, her ruff gets a bit scraggly but that's it.

Pics as promised! Am sure there was another but can't find it.

Can't believe I missed this update first time around Desley  :wow: :wow:  That is amazing progress!!   Your must've been bursting with pleasure.   ;D

I still remember the first big breakthrough with Malt, when she flinched away from my touch again, as per normal, but then something in her made her step forward - almost with an apology, as if to say "I wasn't quite ready - could we try that again?"   :-:  I was made up.  My grin was bigger than a banana.   ;D ;D 

Clever Coco.    :Luv:

Just a little update, will post pics later from my phone. Another good week with the girls, Coco is still happily eating part of her supper from my hand every night – she is even happy stretching over to get food from the palm of my hand, one day I used the opportunity to sneak a touch of her cheek, the first time I did it she sat back and gave me a ‘not sure about that’ look, the second time she moved away – I was just pleased there was no hissing or scratching! She has also got close enough one night for her paw to be touching my hand. She often drops them at the side of my hand and she has no issue with having to touch my hand to get those. Sat night she even came down to the middle level of the den for her supper. Wed night they took the rainbow cord into the catio with them, seemed sweet until I struggled to retrieve it! She has started asking to play in the morning now too, yesterday was hilarious, they both had one end so it was a bit like tug of war! I have a dilemma with the catio now, it is getting too cold to leave it open all day, my neighbour would come and shut it at lunch, but not sure whether they would rather be out in the afternoon or the morning, so reluctant to agree to that, but then the room does get cold. Chanel has been so funny, here is a pic of her asking to be played with! Thu morning she must have been really hungry, she’s never rubbed my legs as much while I’ve been sorting the food out! Yesterday she sniffed my head and then purred!!

It would Gill, that’s why I feel I need to go down the adoption route, while I would hope the manager would listen to me, she has forgotten the conversation about keeping them as long term once, and I don’t want to keep being in this position. Plus I have no idea what our fostering contract says and what I’d be agreeing to. We didn’t get chance to talk after the committee meeting last night, so will wait for them to remember again.

I’m not sure Sue, but I suspect it is our newest trustee as she is trying to bring in more paperwork and rules, not all of which I agree with – she did mention a fostering contract if I wanted to keep fostering them. It certainly can’t be about finances, I’ve not put any litter receipts in since April, and apart from some of the donated food (mainly when we had no other cats in), I’ve never had food for the girls (and didn’t ask for much for the boys either). Resource wise I was told by the manager that as we had more pens, fosterers wouldn’t be needed. I think I am going to go for adoption, as even if they agree with long term fostering, they still have the ultimate say in what happens to them, and could overrule me. They are content, and when you look at that pic, how could you separate them? Sun night Coco wasn’t that in the mood for eating out of my hand (could have been my nail varnish actually), she lifted her paw and I said ‘no paws, just mouth please’ and she actually stopped, considered this, then put her paw down. She did end up hitting my arm, but then ate out of my hand.

Desley, is there any driver you're aware of for them deciding this has to be reviewed now?  Does it have an impact on funding or resources?  Or your fostering abilities?

The girls look very content.  I cant help thinking re-homing them now would be a backward step, and possibly the only way it would work would be to separate them.  The risk then, is that if it doesnt work, one or both of them have lost their only other feline comfort they've known.  :(

I’m just hoping the manager forgot the agreement we had for them being long term fosters due to their lack of suitability for homing and that I can persuade the trustee to maintain status quo. It’s the right now bit that bothers me, although I know that not advertising them means a slim chance of an alternative for them. If I was forced, I would have to go with adopting to ensure they didn’t end up anywhere unsuitable, even though I do the majority of the home visits Looking at this picture taken last night, I’m so glad I stuck to my guns about separating them, and they really do enjoy their home comforts.

Desley, I think you have to explore long term fostering with them.  But otherwise I think a home with you is the best chance the girls have right now.  Am sorry it seems they're trying to force the issue  :hug:

Hmm, have had a text from one of our trustees asking to discuss the girls at the committee meeting on Tue - I need to let them know if I want to continue fostering them, in which case they will be advertised, or agree to adopt, in which case they want me to complete paperwork. I don't know if the manager forgot the conversation about them not being homeable and keeping them as long term foster cats, or if the trustees don't want that. I suppose I'll have to go for adopting, even with my reservations about that.
