Tortie Tuesday

Things are moving along at our house.
Sisterbean bought the boys and I 
some Feliway over the weekend
...it does state that it could take
four weeks to start working!!!!

Mama and the other beans are
praying it will calm us all down
and the three of us will learn to 
love each other...and that I will
not be afraid of sisterbean and
Korinnabean anymore!!!!

I really love it here in my new home,
and I think my mama is the greatest!!!

I love to follow her around and brush
around her ankles.....and purr and purr
and purr.....I think The Boys might be
a little jealous???????

Happy Tuesday!!!!!!!

Love y'all,

Shelly, you sound like a typical tortie - you come home and sort of take over! I live with one, so I know. Maybe the Feliway will help everyone adjust.

Princess Jasmine said...

I just know that you three will soon be the bestest of friends :) prrrrrrrrrrrr

Rainbow Willowfish said...

It's nice that you prrrrrrr so much! Our mom is so happy that all of the sudden, after 3 years, Baby has a loud prrrrr.

KC and the Giggleman Kitties said...

Shelly, you are just so beautiful. Completely enchanting. A typical tortie. I can see why you have stolen your mommy's heart completely. You just came in and became the center of attention.
I think your brothers will come around, eventually.
Oh, and KC said to tell you the "teknickle" term for enlarging a photo by clicking on it is "biggifying". Just FYI.
Love & Purrs,
Mom ML & Two Tortie... KC & Faith Boomerang

I hope Feliway does the trick for you! It can be so unsettling when kitties are unhappy or afraid.
Maybe a calming collar can help out too for the short term.

A loverly little Lady kitty. We had one grace our home down south of here a couple decades ago. She was the sweetheart of the neighborhood. Such a happy little girl.

I think you will have much love and happy in your home soon. I do indeed.

Old Kitty said...

Awwww sweet and adorable Shelly!!! Me and Charlie hope that the feliway will help your adorable brothers Andy and Sammy get used to you more! We just know they'll love you once they get to know you a little bit better!! Yay!! Take care

Kea said...

Shelly, we think the boys would be A LOT jealous! If the Feliway doesn't work, maybe your mom can try those calming collars?

We had the Feliway plug-ins for a while but I don't know it they really did anything so please let me know if you notice any changes. Lately Ben has become a little agressive and I was wondering if it was because I don;t use them anymore... I might start again.

Random Felines said...

We will be curious to hear about the Feliway - mom has thought about getting it to settle things since Spud gets on Ivy's last nerve!!!

Dear Shelly,
Kozmo here, it does take time, remember they are old guys who are not used to have a young one around. Nellie still gets mad at me and I go hide. Mommy had a calming collar on Nellie for a while because we could not get felway. That is when she started to not growl and swat me all the time.
Wish I could play with you!!!

My Mind's Eye said...

Hi Shelly...we hope things improve soon. The boys are older and sometimes they don't like change especially when it is as cute as you are.
Hugs Madi

Oh Miss Shelly, these things just take time! Our mom tried the Feliway before she brought Zoe home. It's hard to say if it worked or not, since we have no way of knowing how things would have been without it. But it was a smooth introduction, so it may have worked. As far as Shelly settling in and not being scared, it took Zoe quite a while, and she only has one human to live with. Even up to a year later, Zoe was still making progress (even though she was pretty comfortable within a few weeks).

CCL Wendy said...

You are such a sweetheart, Shelly! You must be thanking your Mom for taking you in and loving you like she does. (I'm sure she can't help but love you, though.)

Hopefully the boys will settle down, too, and efurryone will be at peace at the same time.

Gemini and Ichiro said...

We hope that you settle in with everyone soon. The Feliway is marvelous. We have them and love love love them here.

Marg said...

Shelly, it is just going to take some time for the boys to get used to you and the other beans. She probably is not used to being around people. It just takes time. Hope all of you have a fun day.

Admiral Hestorb said...

Oh Shelly, come over here for a girls day...just you and me. We'll dazzle everyone with our gorgeous colors.

Shelly, we think you are a Mama's girl - nothing wrong with that at all as long as you let those boys be Mama's boys too:) Hope that Felliway works, we used it for a while with Phantom.

Beautiful collage of a beautiful kitty.

We have used feliway too. Mommy thinks it works somewhat, but time works even better! May Ling and Sweet Pea wear calming collars and they spat a LOT less now.

Brian said...

You can do it Shelly and so can the boys...I mean, look at you, what's not to love!?!?!?!?

The Florida Furkids said...

We've heard good things about the calming collars.

We hope the Feliway works and you all get on well together.

We all wear Calming Collars to help us. They work within a day or two. WE get them at petsmat but you can order them online 'http://www.1800petmeds.com/Calming+Collar+For+Cats-prod11131.html


We read where a lot of kitties on the innernets had good luck with calming collars. We tried using Feliway for Ping and it didn't work on him (but he has a spraying problem). WE hope it helps, but we are sure that the boys will accept you in time.

Hi Shelly! We hope that feliway helps. We use feliway too...mom has those things plugged in all over the house. We're not sure if it helps or not, maybe a little. Mom tried a calming collar on Zoey, but she chewed it off! Such a silly girl!!

Kathie said...

Our bean says this place would be cat-fight hell if it wasn't for Feliway plugins, she has one in every room. Hang in there Shelly, we think your brothers, you know how men like their own way, will eventually get used to your being there and all will be peaceful!
