Puss AKA: Cranky Old Puss
We just wanted to thank you for all you have done for my animals and I would like to share our story about Puss. Thank God we have people like you here who care so much. I’m sure if our animals could talk they would thank you too but just by the way they interact with you, I’m sure you already know.
Puss turned up on our door step one day as a stray, she would visit daily and steal the bird food that was left for the magpies. Jaggered ears, skinny and an unkept coat. We guess she had been someone’s pet at one stage but had been through a lot and even some suspected malice treatment. She slowly crept into our lives and started to trust us. Puss is a wonderful cat but she would lash out at us for no reason at all. She would accept a short pat but would try and shred us if we tried to pat her too much. Hence the name “Crank old Puss”. She was pregnant, so I thought maybe this is normal behaviour for a cat about to have kittens. The vet just put it down to a bad temperament and maybe with some love she will grow out of it.
Years later we started taking our dogs to see J and we were impressed with the results and told him about our Puss, by this time though she was having problems jumping onto things. We so had J visiting our home to use put his magic hands to use on her.
The first visit to our home I was worried that Puss would shred J, but after he worked on her he put his head down to her level and she gave him a great big smooch. She has never been very trusting of men so it was amazing to see how she coil herself around J’s face. I think it’s been about 4 visits now and we have this strange new Happy old Puss in our house. She purr’s for no reason at all and now sleeps in our bed…….under the covers!!!! She also is back to jumping up on the bed and up to her food. We wish we had J do his stuff to her years ago.
