The Ham-mick Saga Continues

Andy here: If you saw my video yesterday,
you know that I love my ham-mick.

We each received one a while back from our Auntie Deb
and couzins at The Taylor CatSSSSS.
Thank you, sweet darlins'.

Sammy is being Sammy!!!!!!!!  He checked them out
and then went on about his business.

If he doesn't use it, we will put it out on the balcony
for sweet Shelly.  

LATEST REPORT ON SHELLY:  She has allowed....and
enjoyed....mama petting her a couple times, but only if the 
balcony door is open only enough for mama to stick her 
hand out.  If the door is fully open Shelly gets scared and will leave.

Please keep purring/purraying for Shelly.  Yesterday 
morning Sammy and Shelly met face to face on the 
balcony,  and he didn't chase her off!!!!! 

We consider this a total miracle, and it gives
us hope as Sammy isn't acting so territorial.

It didn't last long before Shelly jumped  up on the fence 
and did her tightrope escape up the tarp and onto the roof.  

Sisterbean feels it was her fault cuz she
unintentionally startled Shelly.  We can see
we are making some headway with Shelly.

Love and Purrs,

The Chair Speaks said...

Wow, your hammick looks real cool! Think we should try to persuade our human to make one. :)

My Mind's Eye said...

Shelly will eventually respond to all the TLC you are giving her. From what I've heard it is a slow process to get a feral kitty to trust you but it is worth every minute,
Hugs Madi and Mom

Andy looks so adorable on his ham-mick! I love those pictures! Sammy is just so funny! He is checking that ham-mick out!

I think that Shelly is making great strides at being confident that you want to be her friend!

Admiral Hestorb said...

Such good news. I and mom have not forgotten sweet Shelly. ♥♥♥

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are sure Sammy will be straight on him hammick when the flashy box has been put away!!
What good news about your mom being able to pet Shelly through your balcony door and not running away from Sammy. Looks like you may be getting a sisfur - then the fun will start when she gets you two organised!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Corbin said...

Hmm... that hammick sure looks cofy! Glad Shelly is making some progress!

Marg said...

That is so exciting about Shelly. It won't take too long for Shelly to get used to you patting her. It just takes tons and tons of patience. Glad Sammy isn't trying to chase her any more. We can't wait to hear the next update. Have yourselves a happy Thurday.

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Good for Shelly. Shy kitties are wonderful and they need lots of love too! They just don't know it.

Kea said...

This is great news re: Shelly!

Thank you for your care and words re: Annie's passing.

BTW, for some reason your blog posts aren't showing up in our Google Reader anymore, even though we follow you and added you. Kinda weird. Maybe just a Google glitch?

My Mother use to feed the feral cats and spay and neuter them too. She always had 8 or 10 around all the time. She died of a stroke and most of the cats that were outside left!! They knew!!!
I am on dial up and you have a lot on your blog...
The more you put on your blog the longer it takes to load. Today it took 40 minutes to load your words. I didn't get to see any pictures, I usually don't get to see all but today none.
I love your visits and do want to lose you sweet babies!!!!
xx, Happy cat and Bambi & Fern

I don't want to lose you sweeties!!!!!!

Katnip Lounge said...

Sammy won't be able to resist the ham-mick forever...heh heh.

That's such good news about Shelly, we bet she was un-feral at one time and now she's wary of Humans. Tuna is a miracle worker for is sliced deli meat!

Say, we miss your riddles, where did they go?

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

That is wonderful progress with Shelly - a little bit at a time, before long, she will be wanting to come inside. Great job!!!

Andy you look mighty fine atop your hammick...we can tell you love it. Maybe Sammy will realize what comfort he is missing soon and try his out. So glad to hear you are making headway with Shelly, thanks for the update on her. Hugs and nose kisses
