Had a very brave Coco again last night, I let them out and then realised I was out of tablets so had to go downstairs, they had both left their room when I was on my way back up, Chanel flew into the room, Coco stopped but then came back, so I crawled up the stairs and stopped to have a conversation – even when I got to the landing, she just sat in front of the door contemplating me while I was talking to her, then scratched the carpet before going in to get her supper. She even ate a few biscuits off my hand after I dished supper out, she is definitely the one more relaxed with me doing stuff when they are out in the house.

Desley, your patience is really paying dividends in the way the girls are getting braver!  :hug: :hug:

With everything that happened, didn’t get chance to tell you about how brave Chanel was last Thu, was brushing my teeth and was aware of being stared at, looked round and she was actually in the bathroom, sat on the floor, she normally sits on the landing. So I got the bag of dreamies that live in the bathroom and threw one, it actually landed closer to me than her, but she came forward to check it out, closest she has got. However, it seems she doesn’t like tuna dreamies as she wouldn’t eat it, so I went to throw it for Coco who was sat in their doorway, but it landed on Chanel and they both flew off! I also found her in the bottom level on their new bed last week, glad they are finally using it. Neighbour wants them to have a heated bed for Christmas, but I’ve said that they have enough beds and need to use the one they got last year more first.

They were so funny last night, Coco has taken to scratching the carpet when she comes out of their room, I went to see if she was using the new scratch mat last night and she looked backwards at me while moving away! Then when I was brushing my teeth, I just saw the tip of her tail, so asked her if she was hiding, she actually turned round and peeked at me round the banister, but then Chanel ruined it by trying to rub against her - I do wonder if Chanel is a bit jealous, when her mum is doing interactive things that she normally does. Either that, or she's just been very boisterous this week.

Well, they have been here 3 years today! When Chanel was watching me brush my teeth (her latest obsession, watching me in the bathroom!!) on Sun night, I was telling her that I never expected them to still be here, I remember when she was nice kitten, and I was hopeful that in a month or so she would be tame enough to rehome, but that only lasted a week! They have really come on this year, think part of that is me being around more, and they certainly enjoy ‘girls night out’ – to the point they often walk out as I walk in, they don’t even wait for their supper (which is mad, as they don’t always eat their tea before they get supper!).

As you can see, they are still very close, and for once, it’s not because they have knocked one of the beds over, so have to share (and I think the heating was on at the time!). I’m really glad I was able to persuade the manager to let me take them both – there is a chance Chanel would have been homeable if they had stayed separate, but it still would have needed a particular kind of home, and I doubt Coco would have been as good. I think there is a chance Coco will accept more than Chanel, when I blow her kisses, she is quite curious and  her nose twitches a lot, I asked her at the weekend if she knew what kisses were. She is also more confident, she watched me brush my teeth last week and didn’t move when I did, whereas Chanel flies when I move in the bathroom. Also if my neighbour is out when they are sat on the windowsill, its always Chanel who moves before Coco. I did say this morning to them that maybe in another 3 years I might be able to stroke them!

The three of them did accidentally meet the other week, Coco just wandered back into their room, Chanel however just followed Lucy and sat a distance from her gazing at her! Surprisingly enough, Lucy hasn’t been keen to do that again.  I do often wish I won the lottery (even though I don’t play it!!) so I could buy my next door neighbours house for the girls to have more space.

An interesting 24 hours, one good moment, one not so good, but made me think a lot! Last night I could hear a dog howling, so asked Coco to move off the windowsill to let me look outside, she just moved to one side, so I took the chance of touching her back! She allowed it, and then sat gazing at me in a nice, relaxed way so we had a conversation about being touched. It was their night out last night, but I had to let my neighbours decorators in, I decided to nip out without getting the girls back in their room, wont be trying that again for a while! Got back, Coco was back in their room looking decidedly uneasy, Chanel was nowhere to be seen! Now while my rational mind knew there was a 0.01% chance of her getting out of the gap I squeezed in without me feeling her, I started feeling sick with panic. Took over an hour to find her, she was that scared, she had got in a dark spot under the radiator - I used the torch on the 4th check and found her. I had been calling her, shaking Lucy's treats, I even let Lucy out of my room for a couple of minutes in the hope her hissing would encourage Chanel to go to her mum. She did eventually go back in her room, but still uneasy, until I shut the door. She was that stressed she allowed strokes, so got some treats for being good. Who would have thought that something as small as the front door opening and closing while they were downstairs would cause both of them to get stressed? It does show that they really aren't ready for that much more yet, despite it being nearly 3 years.

I am really pleased, but aware I need to reign myself in a little bit! Both ate some of their supper biscuits off my hand last night, it was funny though, I always put Chanel’s down first, so Coco was sat gazing wondering where hers was and why things were being done differently! It was their night out last night, I got up and went in the bathroom, looked towards their door and found them sat looking like a pair of bookends! Coco was just inside the door, Chanel just outside it.

I agree.   To see the incremental steps by which their courage grows is so rewarding.  You should feel immensely proud, Desley.  I feel proud of you    :) :evillaugh:

Really pleased last night, Chanel actually ate part of her supper biscuits from my hand, and this morning she came and rubbed my legs while I was dishing out breakfast, can’t remember the last time she did that, and ate a couple of her breakfast biscuits off my hand. It was funny last night, Coco was watching her with a puzzled look, as it’s normally only Coco who will eat off my hand.

I just have to watch myself for pushing her too much now, or it might be another 2 years! I think she wants it, but wary because of Coco's reaction, last week I was letting her sniff my finger and Coco drew blood on me

Had a little breakthrough today, look what Chanel has just let me do!  :Luv:I gave her some treats as a reward and she ate them off my hand, which is a rarity. I'm fully aware she may be wary of me and not allow this again for a while, but so proud, especially as she has been hissing more recently, including this morning!

Hmm, appears I forgot to reply! There were two reasons I stopped in the early days, firstly was because she went so rigid it was clear she wasn’t enjoying it, and more importantly, she had started to cuddle more to her mum by then, and Coco was still popping and drawing blood then, as well as being very protective! I think that is partly why she was put off, as the first few days, after Chanel had drawn blood, she would relax and purr.

Malt used to run away from us when we tried to stroke her, but we kept on with it.  She got more and more brave.  Whether or not you appreciate It, you're making steady progress.   ;D

Well, I could stroke her for the first few days, it’s just a shame the only time you can stroke her is when she is scared! She doesn’t relax when you stroke her though, but at least this time she hasn’t been wary since.

Could you imagine head to tail strokes when you first got them? You really are performing miracles with them Desley. It may be fairly slow progress, but it's progress just the same. :wow:

I was a bit naughty with Chanel yesterday, but she doesn’t seem to be wary of me after like she normally is, so hopefully we are making a bit of progress with touching – I needed to mop yesterday and she turned into ‘flat cat’ and when she is like that you can do anything, so I stroked her from head to tail, she has such lovely fur. I hope that if I do it occasionally, at some point she might feel a bit of comfort from it and they always get treats after I clean their room, so a bit of positive association.

More improvements this week, sat down with the light on, Chanel happily came down, was very curious about the TV, had a good explore, and then at one point I was laid on the sofa and I felt something behind me, which made me jump - Chanel had decided to jump on the back of the sofa to get on the windowsill! Was impressed at her bravery, even if it did make me jump! When I went to go up to bed, I could see a cat at the top of the stairs, but was convinced Chanel was on the sofa, switched a light on to realise she was, it was Coco at the top of the stairs. First time I've seen her out since I've been sitting downstairs, she looked a bit panicky like she hadn't realised where I was. She let me get part way up before running back in the room, but then did eat some of her supper biscuits off my hand, twice in one week, a rarity these days!

Tried sitting downstairs with the light on last night, Chanel was down within seconds! Not fazed by the light or seeing me, although she did show a lot of interest when a ferret was on the TV! She did have to be told off a few times for scratching the sofa, but did ask me to play with her. Coco was in the front room this morning, let me walk past to go to the kitchen, but when I'd made my tea, I found Chanel on the stairs and Coco nowhere to be seen!

Maybe it’s a combination of me being around more, more time out and I’ve got back in the routine of reading bedtime stories to them, Coco loves being spoken to, but she prefers me reading to having a chat with her, as if I’m chatting to her, I turn round to look at her, if I read I don’t! She was brave again this morning, they were still downstairs, she turned to run, but then I sat down so she stayed on the other sofa just watching me potter on the phone. I think it helps that I don't switch the light on! I’ve been lucky again this week that my mistake hasn’t ended up in fur flying. As much as Lucy was supposed to be an only cat, it is working, even though I do sometimes think that someone with more time/space would have been good for them. I think Lucy is accepting of them as she knows they are staying but she isn’t forced to interact with them, and luckily they are nowhere near ready to have more time out, and they haven’t got the vocalisation of the Siamese.

Being around makes a difference also them being allowed to be out of their safe place, we have done a lot of the not looking game and on the whole it has worked, ours will be all over the house then when its 05.30am the house cats go back to their side of the house and the others are for making the great escape, thanks to our familyroom we can split the house in 2 then open the door to let everyone mix in the evenings and of course overnight

Yes, I agree.

Yes, I think they've had the lightbulb moment, but a friend and neighbour think it's the 'playing out' that has changed them. I wonder if it was me being around more at Christmas

Feels like we are just going from strength to strength this year, not sure if something has just suddenly clicked with them. I think I disturbed Coco playing yesterday, popped in for my kindle and she was near the door, then when I was in the bath I could hear playing. This morning neither were back in their room, I got to the step above Chanel before she moved (I deliberately only switch the landing light on, to avoid spooking them, had the sense to take my phone this time to use as torch), couldn’t find Coco so decided to go in the kitchen to get their food bowls, came back in and saw a cat on the stairs but assumed it was Chanel until the cat ran and realised there was no fluffy tail! I spoke and she actually stopped running and looked at me. She moved to the top of the stairs as I went up, but I walked really slowly and she stayed until I was only about 4 or 5 steps away. Downside was I hadn’t seen Chanel sneak back out, so I shut their door, and opened mine, must have been in 5 mins before I realised there was only one cat! Lucy was just sat on the stairs and Chanel was on the front room floor, but Lucy fortunately ran back into my room, which meant I could get Chanel back in. She mustn’t have been that stressed, I heard playing noises 5 mins later. Actually, the toy you can just about see next to Coco is one of their Christmas presents that Chanel took out and put on the landing!

Good start to the year with them, when it was their night out on Sat, I didn’t feed them first, left the landing light on and then sat in the dark with just the TV on, Chanel came down really quickly. She was intrigued with the TV this time, and did sit on the rug near me for a while. When I went to go up, she flew up before me, but then I sat and read/chatted to Coco for a bit, when Chanel realised I was sitting down, she turned round and left the room again! This week I’m going to try just leaving the door open and sitting with the light on. It was their night out on Mon, when I got up on Tue, neither were back, I found Coco on Lucy’s heated bed! Told them it was time to go back, and went upstairs to potter, but neither followed me, I had to move the curtain to get Coco to come back up – unfortunately I didn’t have my camera on me. My neighbour thinks I need to get them one of their own, but it’s not that easy in their room, plus they still aren’t using their new bed – I put it on a different angle when I cleaned on Fri, didn’t do anything. Will post pics over the weekend, although tonight I'm trying sitting with the light on.
Please spay your cat
