Becoming Family (Part 4, Introducing a New Kitten)

Another Jeta post, and this one is sure to bring a smile to your face – or maybe a tear to your eye.  Jeta was adopted from Cats in Tow by Phil, who is doing an incredible job of introducing her to a new home and a new pal, Phil’s older cat Lucy.

“I’ve discovered I have to carry my camera on me — when I ‘catch’ Jeta doing something cute and I go get the camera – well, it’s over.

She’s getting way braver now. She got into a chair right beside me and laid there for over an hour while I watched TV. I petted her once, and purred to her and praised her. That’s about all the attention she lets me give before she gets timid.

She is definitely following Lucy’s examples for behavior. They sleep in the bathroom or the hall or the living room together now, and they’ve started to play chase with each other – especially at 3am. Gahh!

I did get a couple pics of them on the dining room table eating treats together.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Other than Jeta still being a tad shy at times she has really come out of her shell. She’s an awesome kitty-cat now. If she continues to follow Lucy’s example she will become a cat-person in no time! Lucy has really pulled her weight here for Jeta. And that’s what family does.”

What an amazing family Jeta has found herself in!

One thought on “Becoming Family (Part 4, Introducing a New Kitten)

  1. “Pets benefit adoptees in many ways. Pets improve mental health, psychological well-being, and self-esteem. The presence of animals fosters positive social, cognitive, emotional, and physical development. Pets are mood-enhancing. They relieve stress by lowering blood pressure, feelings of isolation and loneliness, and increase opportunities for exercise and socialization. Pet ownership is associated with better physical and psychological health, and fewer doctor visits. Pet owners feel closer to nature and all living creatures.” —Judith Land, author & adoptee
