Here are a few recent pictures of Bonnie, Clyde and Candy. Barbara adopted Bonnie & Clyde quite a few months ago to keep her company. Both cats were very shy as they had lived on their own for a while before Sonia rescued them. Both had warmed up to Barbara a little, but were not as "snuggly" as Barbara would have liked them to be. Barbara then decided to adopt Candy, who had lived with us since her birth, who was now a year old. Candy is extremely sweet and affectionate and took to Barbara almost immediately. Her affectionate ways quickly rubbed off on Clyde who spends his time napping with her in the recliner and on Bonnie who does not spend as much time hiding in order to get some of the attention that the others are getting. Thats Clyde on the tile, Bonnie with Sonia on a visit to Barbara's house, and then Candy with Barbara. The last picture is of Candy at 20 days old with her mom.
UPDATE: Barbra had to move to a new apartment that would only allow her to have two cats. She let us know about her delima, and we offered to take one of the cats back. Since Bonnie, Candy, and Barbara were getting along so well with each other and Clyde was still very shy with Barb, we took him back. Clyde was older when Sonia originally trapped him and he acted VERY wild when Sonia brought him home. He was hissing, spitting, and screaming so much that Sonia had planned on getting him fixed and then releasing him back to the colony. I decided to give him a chance and "work my magic" on him. I wore gloves when I first attempted to handle him, and he proitested A LOT when I first picked him up. However, after a few sessions with him and some quality "petting time", he began to relax around me. Once he was checked at the vet and allowed to roam free in the house for short spells, it was obvious that he had decided that I was his friend. I would sit on the couch watching TV and notice Clyde as he stealthly approached from around the edge of the room. He would then jump up on the far end of the sectional and lay down. then he would move a little closer and lay down again. He would repeat this until he was right next to me and I was petting him. Now, he just runs over and jumps up on my lap. He sleeps at my feet, and he loves to hang out with Luther.
