I adopted Waffles about 2 months ago from a shelter- a very scared kitty and was at least semi-feral. He's probably about 2 years old. I've been getting him used to us bit by bit- two steps forward and one step back- and last night he decided to jump up on my lap for the first time. It's very heartwarming. He sat for about 30 minutes just purring away and loving being scratched. He's quite the snuggler.

Here he is, happy as a clam. It feels like a giant leap for him! He's back on my lap tonight, as soon as I sat down this evening. This site has been wonderful for information and advice so thanks to all of you. Been reading lots. Waffles is very grateful too.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful story.  Waffles has come so far!  The first time they do something so brave and so heartwarming for the human is definitely one for the memory books!  He looks so content and happy!
