How to get adopted

Here's a great lesson for cats waiting to be adopted into permanent homes. Now if only I can get Snowy and Coco to learn from this handsome ginger cat!

On Labour day, we had a couple of friends over at our home, to hang around, take a shower after their staircase-climbing exercise, and mainly to check on my comatose computer. The cat sisters wasn't friendly initially, that is until I took out the cat treats, then they swarm around one visitor. Coco was fine, and just strutted around being her normal bochup (aloof) self, but the bimbo Snowy went to hide in (of all places) our bathroom, which is not her usual hangout. Tsk, tsk...they both have lots to learn, and I need to have more visitors at home to socialise them.

I think Sanju knew all these tips and was displaying them when the potential adopters came to view him. Incidentally, I met Sanju's papa last week, and he told me that both Sanju and Arrow are fine and healthy. I'm sure the two boys are looking good, for all the vitamin supplements they've been lovingly fed with. Also, the cats have been using ..... (*drum roll* .... & ta da!) ...the human toilet! Their mama has done a wonderful job of training the boys, so don't play play! Apparently, Sanju is super sociable and loves to mingle with guests and visitors to their home. He's a wonderful ginger boy. :)

>_<"

Actually, I don't want them to be so attached to me, but they are! When I sleep in the master bedroom, they will join us in bed some time during the night, sleeping nearer to me. If I sneaked off to sleep in the spare bedroom, after a while I will find both of them squeezing with me on the single bed...very cramped leh.
*roll eyes*

Keep them. They will cry if you adopt them out. Cry and mew very loudly, the whole day. No appetite to eat. Grow thinner. Grow weaker. Always pinning for you. Just want to lay down beside you. For that patting/stroking you always give them. Giving it to them the only way they like.

Imagine they want to snuugle with you in the new place and find that they either cannot get into the bedroom or the new owners do not want them sleeping on their beds.

Am I successful in making you tear a bit while you read this? Got make you change your mind about adopting them out? Hehehe. I is evil.

I wonder how much is nature and how much is nurture that determines a cat's ability to socialise with human. Incidentally two ginger, adopted from Phyllis, one of them is Kinnymingles with guests during their guardian's parties. They are extremely effective ambassadors in desensitising people with negative attitude towards cats.
