Yaffa being affectionate kitty


Yaffa was a street cat when we found her and became our forever kitty. She never was very affectionate when we first got her. She used to hide under things, the couch, the bed, the closet. She still does from time to time. Whenever she is scared, whenever she sees Dante kitty. She also hates being picked up, hugged, and sitting on us beans laps. But lately, she's been more affectionate, and there has been a few times where she actually would sit on my lap. Mom bean's lap. She loves dad bean, she always jumps on his lap, but me, not so much. It's so nice that she gives me her attention now!!

Yaffa is a lot like my Cricket. She was rescued from the streets too. She will lie with me at bed time and usually sleep on my hips for most of the night. We May Not pick her up. :) No lap sitting either. She will hide when people come over. If Yaffa would like, Cricket could show her how to kick kitten butt. Cricket is not afraid of Toeshee at all.
Have you put up a tree yet? Um, that's not going to well with Toeshee... Hope Dante doesn't try to put the bitey on your tree.
Have a great week in NYC!
Hugs,
Lorianna

I've been with my mom for almost 13 years and I still don't lie on her lap. I'm glad that Yaffa is getting more and more comfortable.

We Cats like to dole out our affection. I'm glad she's happy and feels safe.

Oh, that's good that Yaffa is becoming more affectionate! Cybil used to run and hide whenever people came to the house too, but she was very affectionate with me from within hours of my adopting her. She hardly ever sat on my lap but would curl up against me with her head on my leg and she always slept with me. When she wanted me to wake up she would tap, tap, tap me very rapidly with her paw! I do hope Dante will calm down. He must have been so traumatised before you adopted him, poor boy. :) xxx

Oh, Yaffa, you look happy being on a lap! I am always on my mom's lap but Willow never is. Willow only goes on my dad's lap, but she sleeps on my mom in bed.

Purrrrrrrrs, China Cat

It's a wonderful moment when a cat decides that a human is ok and good for some lap time. She is lovely.

Ollie is like that, too. She was a dumped/rescued kitty. She doesn't like to be picked up and carried, and has never been a lap sitter. She prefers to sit beside you. Recently she's started sitting in her Daddy's lap a few times.

My Bentley is like that, always interaction on HIS terms. I don't push it, and he's been warming up nicely these days, too.

I'm glad to hear she's becoming more affectionate. You never know, she might turn into a lap cat yet!

It's nice she is becoming more affectionate at times. We all have our own personalities and quirks.
