I get a lot of messages from people
saying that their cat is very shy and asking what they can do about it.
Now, I believe that in most cases with patience you can help your cat overcome
her shyness …and a lot of my videos explain how to do this. But I also think
that there are some cats who for whatever reason are by nature very shy
cats. My cat Kate Moss has been with me since she was about two months old, but
even to this day 15 years later she still acts like she’s scared of me!
Kate came from the exact same circumstances as her brother Creature
and her sister Miss Kitten did, but neither of them have the shyness issues.
Kate Moss Kate spends most of her day in her “lair” which is under the bed
in our guest room. Sometimes she’ll sleep on top of the bed but if anyone walks in
she jumps right off and hides. She gets along with all of the other cats and
none of them bother her, but she seems to prefer being alone most of the time. The
only time Kate Moss comes out of the bedroom is for meals she eats very fast
and then she’s done – off she scoots back to her bedroom lair. Very occasionally –
and I mean like maybe once a month – Kate will surprise us by venturing out
to socialize but only when we are both settled down watching a movie.
She’ll hop on the back of the sofa meow and rub her head against us for a minute
and then* poof!* off she goes. Other than that we just don’t see Kate
Mosse very much …it was even hard getting video footage of her because the moment
she realizes that you’re watching her she takes off! Some people would have a
big problem owning a cat like this but we have a lot of other cats and most of
them want our attention constantly, so we are not lacking in Kitty affection. So, I
just accept Kate Moss for who she is and I even love her the more for it. we call
her our “crazy Kate” and when she does come out for that rare visit it makes us
feel very special. I don’t know why Kate Moss is so painfully shy ,and you would
think after 15 years of regular meals and lots of love she would have come
around a little more,. Even so, the fact that Kate will occasionally gather up
the courage to venture out from the safety of her lair for a little purring
and some head rubs well that tells me that she DOES love us in her own way..
even if it’s just for a few seconds! Thanks so much for watching! if you like
