THE CATS IN PRINCESS Z’S LIFE 🐱
Cats have always been a part of Princess Z’s life.Being fond of cats since her toddlerhood.She loves everything related to them.Whether its cat cushions,plush toys,hair clips etc.We never had one nor planned of having any as mom aka Princess Z’s grandma (Nani) was afraid of them and didn’t want the ‘scratching the furniture’ thing🙈in the house.During our shifting process Princess Z tried her best to convince Nani to get her a kitten on her birthday (as she knew our house is getting bigger and we have space for them)but it didn’t work out 😞.The day we shifted to our new home just before her birthday Princess Z was lucky enough to make some new cats friends in the neighborhood.Nani was happy as well as we didn’t needed to get one now)😉.
Here’s what she named them:
Softy-Loves moaning outside our door,a solid eater,the first one to get attached and is the oldest and the closest of them all.’Her best friend’,that’s what Princess Z likes to call her 😊).
Whitey- A little reserved,plays a little,likes to roam around our house,loves food
Silly Cat-A kitten actually who loves to play in our garden with her mouse toy and bubbles
Babu-Never comes in but loves to be fed.
Softy 2- Pays us a visit,once in a blue moon
and many more but they have not been named yet)
It was a scary thought at first.(tendency to bite or claw.) but as time passed by they created a special bond.It’s was not just Princess Z that started to have the love and affection in her eyes, but the cats seem to have the same adoration.In no time the cats and kitten became attached to Princess Z.Taking time out to feed,play,pet and caress them has became a part of her daily life.Nothing makes her more happy then seeing those cats waiting for her outside at the doorstep when she comes back from school.Not only this weekends,specially Friday is a ‘Cat’ day for us,spending hours playing with them in our garden.
Playing with cats is all about treating them well.During the night time when Princess Z is lying by my side I tend to teach her all about the do’s and don’ts of Cats.When talking I try to make her understand the teaching on how to play with them,by staying calm and quiet while playing: no yelling, screaming, running, or jumping.Telling her the facts about them.Its important to help her understand that the cat is not a toy and she’s a living companion who has just as many feelings as us.
