Scratch

Depression self-help tip 3:


Scratch is the eldest cat but still as soft and sweet as a kitten. She used to live on the streets before we homed her and so for years has been very shy and timid. She used to flinch when you tried to stroke her and would run away when you walked towards her. Sometimes Sooty and Muffin intimidate her which is unfortunate but she is so elegant and civilised, you can tell there is always something occupying her mind. After our last cat died of old age, Scratch seemed to recognise that she had a gap to fill as the most mature cat in the family and has over the past couple of years become much more affectionate and confident. She always makes me smile when she comes over to me as she used to be so timid and afraid of her own shadow. It really cheers me up to think about what an impact we'e had on her life. To some she's just a cat, but I really do see her as a 'rags to riches' princess.
If there is one spot of sun spilling onto the floor, a cat will find it and soak it up.
