Re: Couch strike


It may take him longer to get used to the couch than the others, but cats are resilient and he will get used to it.

Re: Couch strike


 emoticon Yay! I am so happy for you! Maybe it took that long for the fumes to be lessened enough for him to get near the couch. Those fumes can be pretty rugged.

Re:


I still think it was more fear. He is my fearful child and he had a terrifying experience the day they came and took his couch and he was under it.

He has always been that way. When he was only 3 weeks old a predator got into his nest with his brothers and sisters and killed one of them. I don't think he ever recovered. It was very terrifying. After it happened, the people who had the kitties moved them all into the house but the damage was done.

The poor baby! Yes, that is like Daisy kitty and being rejected by her cat mom. She has never gotten over that, I am positive.

If that were true, ALL my cats would HATE or FEAR me forever! emoticon
As I've had to hold them down many times to administer meds, cut out stitches, clip claws, removed things they got tangled [sign in to see URL] of things.
But I have one old cat, who has always been a "scared" cat. I mean she will lay on my bed, or sleep next to me, she will come up to US to be petted, but we can not go to HER or hold [sign in to see URL] is 15 and never got over whatever tragedy brought her to us in the first place.

But my little stray, that I just had all her teeth done, [sign in to see URL] would run and hiss and meow at us when we try to catch her. She is truly a scared cat....
But as soon as we were done giving her her [sign in to see URL] will jump up on our laps. Within minutes.


I'm glad yours is coming around, but he may always 'fear' that couch. For whatever reason...

Re: Couch strike


Does he like to be picked up and cuddled?
If he doesn't mind, you could pick him up and walk around the room a little, talking and cooing to him then sit on the couch still holding him in your arms. That's what I'd try.

Re:


He has never liked for anyone to go after him even to love him. However, he has been letting me go pet him in his bed. He has been laying still waiting for it and I have been scratching him in the places he likes scratched.

Today he walked over to the couch and was looking up over but then my mom came in the room and scared him. Maybe tomorrow.

I did pick him up and sit on the couch with him the day before he actually got up with me on his own. I was going to do that again but then he started sleeping somewhere I couldn't reach him so I ignored him again and a couple days ago he moved back to his regular bed where I could pet him easily.
