Buggy has that look of, been there done that. A wise old soul! He looks great and content. I just posted a link in a post to this thread. A member is trying to tame a feral and I think they need some encouragement. I think just reading your thread will do it but, I'm going to call you and tabbytom tabbytom to the thread and maybe you could give some words of encouragement if you get a minute.

The 4th Gotcha Day for the Bug occurred today! The now middle aged bum and leader of the kitty committee fully enjoying his retirement!
Happy gotcha day Bug! :celebrate::dance::party2::party::jump::jive::dance:

Great to see you guys as it has been awhile. I hope you guys are keeping yourselves safe.

Bugs really has changed so much since the last time and his look is just showing how much he has matured.

Great to hear from y'all!
For those who may not be aware, tabbytom tabbytom consistently advised me through the whole process of getting Bug indoors, back then a nasty, violent, wandering SOB. And during domestication too. Definitely a rough, trying process, I'm far from experienced in feral domestication. Well, you can read the long thread if you choose. But I want to thank tabbytom tabbytom yet again for his commitment in sticking with me.

The Bug has a long life ahead, safe, consistent, social with his kitty buds here. Still frequently snuggling with Princess, we believe his sibling, though we'll never know for sure. I'll post a recent pic in the kitties together thread.

And I'll still be lurking here time to time! Again, thank you tabbytom tabbytom . I consider Bug to be part yours!

So glad that it all worked out and also thank you for your patience with Bug and for not giving up on him :clapcat:

I guess that he knows too that your house is the right place for him and therefore he appeared outside your house. He made the right choice.

Yes, Bug is very much part mine (hehehe) as since my very first post here and through out, it seems that I'm there with him. Give him my hugs and kisses.

Yo! A huge shoutout to tabbytom tabbytom ! Great to see you are still here advising others. I'm doing well ...you? And January?
Attached a pic of both, they continue to be inseparable. I'm now thinking Princess may be Bugs momma as she's appearing older these days. Bugs' 5th "gotcha" anniversary upcoming in 3 months. Doesn't seem possible, time a' flyin', I believe he's 7 or 8 yo now!

:hellocomputer::bigeyes: Early happy Gotcha day :party2::dance::party: So great to see the panthers again they are beautiful. I was along for the ride with Bugs but Oh My Gosh I can't believe it's been almost 5 yrs! I didn't remember that it was so close to Gypsy although hers was more of several months rather than a day. We 1st started feeding and then meeting her in Sept/Oct 2016 (reason I discovered TCS) took her to the vet in early Nov, she decided to move in when it started getting colder around the same time although we were still letting her out when she wanted to go (we didn't know any better and it's a quiet neighborhood) then In Jan 2017 she came home limping (back to the vet) and we stopped letting her out. She was ok with staying in until spring when the weather started warming up and then she wanted to go outside! I researched and started taking her out in a walking jacket, she took to it pretty quickly and we now go out daily in one of her many harnesses. The vet guessed her at 1 or 2 back then so she's now 6 or 7.
Princess as mama, amazing.:purr:Take care and photos are always welcomed.
