Sunday Craft Link Time

Blogged under Around the Web by Tammy on Sunday 22 January 2012 at 3:17 pm

Here is our Herbie hanging out in his favorite Mango box. While the girls are totally at home in their new world after leaving the shelter many months ago, Herbie is still coming out of his shell. He is such a sweet boy, and I so look forward to being able to pick him up and hold him some day. Right now, I have to be satisfied when he comes to me and squeaks and allows me to pet him. He will often also come to my desk and walk around in front of the monitor when he needs some smooching. I am working on the picking up thing with him, but he’s less than thrilled about it. He doesn’t freak or fight, but he wiggles, and I know he doesn’t like it. But someday he will, hopefully.

All the girls adore him, but Chanel is majorly in love with this boy. She is always finding opportunities to sit right next to him. Here they are looking out one of their favorite windows. I purposely have the curtains hung so there’s a nice gap for them to look through.

Okay, now for this weeks crafting links.

    Hi, Tammy! Next time you try to pick Herbie up try the “alert baby” position on him. Basically hold him where he is looking over one of your shoulders. Have an arm under his back feet so he feels secure. Cats who don’t like to be picked up will tolerate this,position the best, in my experience. Put him dowm immediately though the instant you feel he wants down or he may accidentally claw while trying to get down. I just hold the cat snugly and bend over, they see they are close to the ground and feel safe as you release them.

    Thanks Leslie. I started out with the bent over pick up, and now we are more off the floor. I’ll see how he handles the over the shoulder thing.
