Rumor has it she may have kissed this cat....
Wednesday afternoon something very interesting happened. Mom wasn't feeling good so she stayed home from work. She had noticed a few times that Goldfish seems to like to nap in the chair that mom uses when she is home. Well....mom was sitting there with a blanket on her lap (it is chilly here) and the next thing she knew, Goldfish jumped up and sat on her lap. Mom didn't even breathe. And then....Goldfish curled up and snoozed. Mom did pet her a few times...very slowly. No idea how long it would have lasted, but a truck in the parking lot made a big noise and Goldfish got startled and took off for a safe space.
And unless you think she is "cured" - mom accidentally cornered her in the kitchen later that day and Goldfish bounced off the cabinets and ran out of the room like she was on fire. Oh well....mom is willing to take whatever progress she can get from that kitten.
