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.

THEY LOOK SO HAPPY TOGETHER AND I THINK ADOPTION TO YOU HAS TO BE THE ONLY SAFE WAY TO GO.

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.

Ok, will keep posting. Had a good day today, Chanel rubbing my legs at breakfast, coco asking for play again and letting me stroke her with the toy. The other day, Lucy cracked me up about something, then Chanel did and I felt incredibly lucky. Here are some pics of the daft three sitting on random things!

Well, I thought you had all got bored Paula! Not really been much improvement, Coco is eating part of her supper off my hand practically every night – although last night got lots of slobber in the process, and still asking to play – in fact last night, she was playing on the floor with her favourite toy, and then looked like she was trying to engage in play with Chanel, who went in the tunnel, she doesn’t seem to trust her mum when she is trying to play. Downside I have at the moment is by giving them access to the catio all day, the room isn’t warming up – my neighbour has offered to go in at lunch to shut it, but I don’t know if they would prefer to be out in the afternoon. Chanel did prove on Sun that she would be no good as a farm cat, they always go in the catio when I start sweeping and mopping, Chanel was trying to lie flat on the shelf and was glaring at me, it was quite chilly and she clearly didn’t want to be out there, she isn’t in it as much as Coco. It was odd being glared at by her though, it doesn’t happen very often. I've also had a lot of sneaky strokes of her this week, mainly stopping her pinching Coco's toy! I’ve got Capstar flea tablets (I know they aren’t great, but the tablets my vet sells must be bitter, Buster hated them, so not sure they would eat those crushed) and Panacur granules to get into them, going to use Lick-e-lix

Couldn't agree more.   :)

I empathise with you over the prospects of getting them for medical treatment or re-vaccinating, as we have similar issues with our gurlies.    :innocent:

Yes, there is progress Paula, and as Kay said on CC, as long as they have what they want, progress or lack of isn’t vital – obviously progress was in the beginning, but now the aim isn’t to make them homeable it doesn’t matter as long as they seem happy. I don’t know what would happen if they needed vet treatment though – partly getting them there, and partly medicating, I haven’t figured out worm and flea treatment yet, I tried the tablet wormer and they barely ate the food. And their vaccs are overdue, but as they only see each other that isn’t too important.

Well, I've had a very good week with the girls - Coco may be less hissy with my neighbour, but she has now started playing twice a day and if I sit down doing something, I do get stared at until I pick up her favourite toy, it's nice she's asking for playtime. One evening I nearly got a stroke of her tail, shame I was a bit too cautious, but she didn't seem too bothered. Another night I tried getting her to eat off my hand, she was more interested in the bowl, so I gently brushed against her cheek - 3 times! She hissed everytime, but didn't attack me and didn't stop what she was doing and run, so the trust is building. I think I still agree with my friend that this is their only option but not to stop looking in case something does come up for them.
