Silvervine sticks for cats to use while being walked by their humans.
For years I have had many people come to me when they find out I’m a cat. Cats were something I never even considered. I’ve always had dogs, but not cats. For whatever reason I’ve always been attracted to dogs and I find them to be very easy going, affectionate and loving dogs. Cats on the other hand have always been the total opposite of this. I don’t know if it’s the breed, or if it’s me. My only experiences with cats were at work with a neighbor, who was also allergic to dogs. Every day I would have to go to her house and bring her two cats a few times a week. They were sweet cats, but they weren’t very affectionate towards me. They would be in their carrier with me and the second they could get away from me they would get a firm hold of me and make sure I was good and safe.
Then about 6 months ago, my friend who lives in an apartment complex asked me if I could visit her cats. She lives with one cat and I was amazed by how friendly and happy he was with me. He would sit next to me and rub up against me and give me kisses. His companion cat was a completely different story, but she didn’t make any fuss over me like the one who lived with my friend. I didn’t mind either way as long as the cats were happy and well cared for. My friend was going to get rid of the cat she had for a few years, as she was moving. Her new tenant was very allergic to cats and her landlord wouldn’t let her have one in the apartment. So she was thinking of finding another one that would be okay. She asked me if I would mind looking after the cat for her while she found another one. I agreed to take on the responsibility. The first night I was there for her was the night she got her new tenant. My friend had already put her kitten into a cage and had her sit right in the middle of the room, where she couldn’t see me. She was trying to give her time to get comfortable with her. But my little one was completely terrified, she was still in the cat carrier. My friend was really stressed out as she didn’t know what to do and I was already in the house. But I was determined to do my best to help this little one adjust to her new home. I brought her outside and let her sniff all of her surroundings. I was just amazed how well the little thing did. She had only been outside the apartment once before. But this time she didn’t flinch, she sniffed the grass and trees and her first house. Once inside my friend started to pet and feed her. I brought her in my lap and gave her some attention, but I didn’t want to be too hard on her as I knew it was a big change. I was hoping she’d make more of an effort when I got her home. But I don’t think she got the fact that we were going to have to leave right away.
So we were at my friend’s place for maybe a half hour to an hour, when my friend called her sister to come get her so that they could go get the new tenant’s new cat. My friend had told me that her sister lived about a mile away and we had made plans to be there at the same time. So I helped her open the cage and get her little one out and then I followed them. When we got to the house my sister was standing on her porch and saw me, she came down to help me get my little one out. My sister was in a hurry to take the kitten and bring it inside. My friend wanted to see if it would be okay to let the little one stay outside. I didn’t know if I was doing the right thing letting her stay outside in a new place and all by herself. But my friend told me it would be okay as the little one would be fine as long as she got lots of attention.
We took my sister to my friend and she told my sister to take the kitten into her home. But she had to hold onto the kitten. We told my friend that if the little one didn’t settle down we would have to take her back out and bring her back in again. So my sister got the kitten settled in the house. My friend then let her stay in the living room. We took the cage back out to my friend’s apartment and brought it back inside. I tried to give the kitten some attention and she seemed to settle down, so we brought her into my friend’s room. I tried to give her some attention, I brought her over to me and let her snuggle with me and rub against me. She seemed very happy to be at my place.
That night and all of the next day I took good care of the little one. I brought her outside to play and gave her a lot of attention. The next day she seemed to really enjoy the company. We made sure she was always with me as she had a hard time being left alone. I was the only person in the house so I could take care of her.
My little one started getting really curious about her surroundings. She would walk all the way around the house. She would come in when she thought there was no one around, and climb up on my desk. I was sure she was trying to get in the desk drawer to see what was in there. I was scared to even think about letting her near the desk drawer because I knew that drawer was filled with dog toys. She was the only cat in the house and I just knew that she wanted to play with the dog toys. She also tried climbing on my bed and into my closet.
Every day I’d come home from work and take her outside to play with her. She seemed to get more comfortable with me. She seemed to be trying to let me know when she was getting scared. She would start licking me
