He is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! I was really impressed with his body language, his demeanor. I get a sense you are making great progress with him. GREAT to see!!

Keep up the great work!! WELL DONE!!

If I had a tail like that, I would keep it between my front paws, too! I'm in AWE! And he's such a love bug, isn't he? WELL DONE!

he he! Not always a love bug! but he's getting there!
He doesn't cuddle or sit with me or even sleep in the bed with me like my other cats did. but that could be a good thing I guess!
for years I slept in a certain position for my Tigger.

he he I will have to video Joey holding his tail!
rubysmama rubysmama now that I know how to make a video I will get one of Walli it will be boring tho, she doesn't do much when I'm around.

Positive note, just figured out Joey is doing so much better!
He rubbed my leg while I was talking to Walli through the door, he use to bite and attack my leg.

I have been thinking it's the CBD and I know it is working, but I had forgotten I was diligently scruffing and hissing when he would bite.
He has not bitten since, and he is definitely changing.
I think something new is going on with Walli too, very small steps but I think she may be starting to see I'm not going to hurt her. She has a long way to go, I hope she will let me love her, what a tough life she must of had on the streets. I would love for her to feel what a pet feels like and some scritches on the ears!

Maybe she heard that she's going to "star" in her own video and wants to be sure she looks like a precious princess onscreen. :hearthrob:

Joey's playing has changed recently (growing up)? He still wants to play but he's not going after the wand toy like he use to
It's making me confused on how to play with him, which he needs for all his energy. I switched back to the cat dancer and that is helping, lately he wants to play while under our bedding, which I don't like because of allergies, but I let him (sigh)
I do put a small blanket he can play under on top of my bedding also.

There has been a couple times Walli has let me bring treats to the catio without running away, but mostly she runs away when I approach.

I wish I had more time for the cats, but all my spare time has been for building my Feral Cat Shelters, which are almost done, I think I may have 2 more weeks to go till the outside structure is done, all the bins are done.

That's all the updates for now!

Oh, Walli, love. You don't know what you're missing by not letting your Mom give you hugs and attention. :( But you're safe, warm and well fed, so whether you know it or not, your life is better now than it was before. :hearthrob:

How many ferals are you caring for?

That's all the updates for now!
Thanks for the update. :thumbsup:

Thanks Rubysmama! I will read all the toy links!
I started with 4 Street Ferals, lost one and I have 1 that isn't part of the gang but he comes and eats occasionally and
he needs to be neutered, I am trapping this weekend, I hope I get him, I'm devoting my entire Saturday out there with
the drop trap!
