photoblog image Alma Part Two

Alma Part Two

Kenz and Alma had been helping with the gardening in 2011 and were having a well deserved rest.  I had been pulling stray morning glories and they are fabulous vines for cats to play with. There is a well chased bit in front of Alma.

 

Alma is in crisis. My son has been gone since January but has been home three or four times since then for a day or two each time.  We are regularly in contact through Facetime and he visited each time he was home. Alma has completely shunned him.  She leaves the room if he is on Facetime or will not look at him if I bring it to her. She has hidden all through my house to avoid him but we found her every time but once. She has loved the winter here with the company and we have enjoyed her.

A great image, Mary.

[Brownie struggled home from whoknowswhere this morning and seems to be ill...I gave her water, and then placed her in a safe place for a sleep without interference from the dogs...if she is not improved in a few hours the I might have to find the vet]
Mary MacADNski: How is Brownie now, Ray? Had she been ill? Is it possible she was poisoned?

I know what it is to be shunned by a cat, Mary, but never as much as this
Mary MacADNski: I have never seen anything like it - ever!

Sounds like Alma wants to stay with you Mary, your son is yesterday's story
Mary MacADNski: She does want to stay with her but he plans to take her back. She can visit any time.

A wonderful picture. I remember we had neighbours with a cat, after a two weeks vacation, (another neighbour would take care of the cat) that cat would be like a dangerous animal, hissing and blowing and a thick tale, they could not touch her for at least 24 hours, she was ANGRY, 'how dare they to leave me behind'.......
Mary MacADNski: I am glad that does not happen with my cat. It would be hard to find someone to feed them.

I agree with Chris - she is a very sensitive person!
Mary MacADNski: She is making her thoughts known quite well. He spends so little time at home that she is lonely.
Our cat Vadrouille used to shun me when my daughter Pamela was visiting us. She was very exclusice with her!
Mary MacADNski: Ah, yes, she doesn't understand who paid for the food. Cats often do have a favorite person.
Lovely pair.
Mary MacADNski: Kenz has died since then.

When thatt His very strange. Maybe she is punishing him for "abandoning" her and now she wants nothing to do with him? She does not look very old here.
Mary MacADNski: She was probably a year old here and had already had kittens. She loves being here with other cats and company. She is alone much of the time at my son's.
