her down - making sure I didn't overdo it, because that was a first for her
letting me hold her like that, and so I wanted to make sure I stopped before
her tolerance reached its end. It wasn't so much to keep from getting my
face scratched as to build trust. She hasn't been a lap cat thus far - but
I'm working on it. grin

Great story!! And it was smart to put her down before she got overstimulated
or nervous and cranky about it. This way she won't associate letting you hold
her with agitated feelings.

I thought I remembered that she had gone to the bridge, but I haven't seen
a post from you in a while, so I wasn't sure.
And I didn't even realize that Mooch was a girl! She was a great (semi)
reformed feral kitty.

For years I thought Mooch was a male, until I took her to the vets on the
final day of her life a couple of years ago. The vet said that she was
I repost regularly about Mooch and her activities before she died, on my
Facebook home page and to her fan club group that I mentioned.
