We do not mean to bore you or make you think that only Braveheart deserves to be written about as all our cats and dogs deserve the limelight. But Braveheart is teaching us so much on so many levels about the spirit, determination, and resilience of this wonderful species.
From the first moment we saw him, the cat that looked like he could and would eat you alive, suffering with the pain of one of the most horrible wounds we have seen in a long time, now to witness transformation.
We are not claiming that he is now the perfect lap cat, but we are seeing a small glimmer of trust. What you see Braveheart looking at are Becca’s fingers.
She put her finger on his paw and he put his other paw on top of her finger. Of course I am sure Becca’s heart stopped for a second or two but all fingers came back intact. He allowed a picture to be taken of him looking at her fingers but not the brief second that he allowed Becca to gently touch his chin, maybe next time.
We know Braveheart still looks a little rough around the edges but he has allowed this close-up picture so we can show everyone how his hair is growing back and how well he is healing.
