as we see here:
...and here. You'd think I was gonna eat her for dinner! ;Q
Ponti, I feel your pain. I love holding my animals, but our Goldie is worse than yours in that regard. (see pic below)
I can hold her for about five to ten seconds and then she is squirming like crazy to be down. BUT this is a major milestone for her, so we keep trying it from time to time, to get her used to being held and to give her the idea that she is safe when she's being held.
She LOVES to be petted as long as her feet are on the floor or another surface. She'll even climb into a lap for some lovin' but if you pick her up, she's outta here in under ten seconds.
It's taken us two years to be able to even pick her up at all. When we first got her, she would sleep with one eye open and you couldn't even touch her without her jumping out of her skin. Now she's much calmer and we can hold her for a few seconds. Hopefully in the next few years we'll actually be able to hold her for real. That will be so cool.
ps: The other one, Molly, is just the opposite. She would live on a shoulder if she could.
Ponti, those are some adorable pics! Are your hands that big or is Picabo still that small?;f
Moe doesn't always care to be held much either, though she is very loving. She'll let me hug her for a minute, and she does hug back, but then she's done.
Shoeless, that's a beautiful cat!
Try holding her and giving her gentle scratches on her head and neck area. Cats like scratching, if you are gentle. After awhile, they will let you hold them for longer periods, but they will want you to scratch them and will tell you what spots they like. Be gentle and patient, they will come around.
Both of mine require to much attention;g
Consider yourself lucky
Heh heh good pics.
Ripley is not too crazy about being picked up either.
In pic #2, who's fishy mobile is that hanging up? ;e ;f
Ponti's. don't judge him ;f
She looks like an Ocacat!
My Goldie is getting to the point of allowing me to hold her, she coos and rubs her head on my belly when I hold her, sometimes. She spent her first two months growing up in a warehouse. She is six months old now. I love the little bandit!
