Magnificent Mancat Monday

Resident house panther, Ruska, is very shy with humans. He loves the rest of us and is growing in tussle-confidence, especially with Pekka. But on Saturday he faced his fears of touch, just for a few minutes.
His fur are deep and have a few tangles in. Äiti would love to groo im thoroughly. No chance.
He was brave enough to stay, despite the photos.
Äiti noticed from his ears that he was getting less relaxed.
But he loved the chin scritch!
This was deeply satisfying for both parties.

...and us as well! Mommy never loses hope for Scouty.

Even if her dreams DO involve tranquilizer darts.

Ruska will come around. In his own time. Which is not human time.

He's a beautiful boy! He'll come around on his own terms and even if he doesn't , we know he'll have all the love he could ever want. My white girl reminds me of Ruska. When I first got her she wouldn't let me pet her but I could comb her head neck and back. She was afraid of the human touch but not the comb. She'll never be a cuddle bug with humans but she cuddles other cats all the time.
