Yes, she is. If she'd only stop trying to hold onto me with those claws
extended. She's sort of treating me like a piece of furniture,
something to be grabbed onto. It's not as if I'm trying to carry her
around. When she's in my lap and I need to get up sometimes ouch!

I'll need to get a lesson in claw clipping.

Your first front-clawed cat? She's just precious, and after pointing the
Facebook group to your pictures, they're just oohing and aahing over how
pretty she is.

Persia was the only other cat I ever had. Whoever had her before me had
front declawed her. So yes, Buffy is my first fully clawed cat.

I know Buffy isn't extending her claws to hurt me. She's doing it
because she wants to hang on so as not to fall. When she's in my lap
she uses her claws to hold on to *me* before jumping down. Yes, those
sharp little claws hurt.

Eventually I'll have to learn how to get her to let me clip her claws.
That should be a getting to know you process!

I also suspect she might need a tooth cleaning. She's been rubbing her
mouth against my hand. This is not just cheek to cheek transfer of
pheromones. When her gums are exposed I can see her teeth don't look
all that great. That might be why she's been avoiding food until last
night. She ate some more gooshy food again this morning. Then she ate
some of the dry, but only after I sprinkled some of Persia's favourite
dried barley grass on it.

It's too bad the caregiver had absolutely no veterinary records
information about Buffy.

Yes, a complete physical exam is in order. One of the symptoms when
Duffy needed to have teeth pulled (both times) is that he started to cry
in a loud, complaining voice, and he kept rubbing his mouth against my
chin. He would rub hard!--so hard his teeth were uncomfortable against
my chin. After the offending teeth were pulled, he stopped doing that.

Yes, I'm thinking this is definitely in order. It's the one problem you
encounter when you adopt a cat... there's no real information.

When the claws are out, don't pull your arm away. The instinct will be
to dig in. Leave your hand in the cat's grasp until she releases you.

Ah, yes, I'd forgotten Persia had been front declawed. Boyfie has only
once grabbed me hard - he was so fast asleep on my lap, he rolled over, and
started to fall. Ouch, but very forgivable in the circumstances.
Although, he is often so ecstatic when he's on my lap that he cannot help
flexing his claws in and out slightly whilst he's purring. That's only like
pinpricks though. I've learned to put a blanket over my knee every time I
sit down. You might have to do the same ;-)
Actually he is very aware of his claws, he holds back from actually patting
my face when he thinks teatime is late, he just "pretends" to. He is also
capable of putting just "one" claw out from his front paw and approaching my
face with it if I keep saying "it's not time" and he thinks it is. Like
"I've told you twice nicely, now I mean it.." but he never would actually
touch my face with a claw. Which are quite serious claws. I don't clip
them, I think he needs them to go outside: he sharpens them himself on my
trees.
Buffy is very lucky you adopted her. She looks middle-aged plus, do you
agree? I'm sure she will bring you much pleasure and companionship.

Lots of luck with your new girl.
Tweed
P.S. anything I ever adopted from a shelter or a bad home always cost me
megabucks in veterinary bills at first. Worth it in the end.
