    Well, as some of you know, Ginge isn't the most affectionate of cats and I put this down to her being passed from owner to owner. When we got her in August, she was 11 months old and we were her 4th home. Her first owner's wife didn't like her so she was always kicked outside to the point that she is now an indoor kitty and she doesn't like the outdoors. Her first owner passed her on to a family member (though kept their other cat ?!), who passed her on to another family member and then that person (who works at my hairdressers) was looking for a home for her after a week as she was not loved and her kids were already fed up of her ?!

    Day by day Ginge is getting more confident with me and the fact I discovered she likes being brushed has definitely helped and she now runs to me when I have the brush and will stay there until she is fed up lol.

    Today I walked past her and she was on her back so I thought why not, I will give her tummy a tickle. She loved it !! I have done it a couple of times before but not often as she generally runs away. Well today she didn't. She let me tickle her tummy, then she licked my hand and then, she made my heart melt. I went to move my hand away and she put her paw on my hand, pulled it towards her and then carried on licking my hand and finger. Oh, my, word. I literally could have cried there and then but I didn't want to scare her lol.

    Sorry for the ridiculously long post. I am just so proud of my girl xxxx

    You have every right to be proud :)



    She obviously know's that she has finally found her forever home and she is showing you just how grateful she is. It sounds like she loves her mummy very much:)

    What fantastic progress!! It's amazing how much a forever home can change an animal- well done for taking her in and cherishing her. I hope you have many, many more of these lovely moments together :001_wub:

    Awwww thank you sweetie xx

    I'm seriously excited. I know it sounds sad though lol. I'm wondering if its because i've been poorly and have been off work so i've been able to spend more time with her ?! Just sorting out some photos of the gorgeous girl to put on here. She deserves to be shown lol xx

    aww I am so happy for you.

    My Gizzy was a hissy unfriendly little thing for nearly a year and then the 1st time she jumped up on my lap for a cuddle I actually did cry :eek:
    Thankfully she is now a confirmed lapcat.

    Awwwwww bless. I was so close to tears but didn't want to scare her away although I remember when I was crying one time, I was lying in bed and felt something around me - I took my head from underneath the covers :eek: and Emi was on my head and Ginge was lying next to me. They both certainly cheered me up :D !!

    I am hoping one day Ginge will be a lap cat but I think it will be a good while off. Gizzy gives me hope though - thank you xx
