Mikki, what if my dog/cat has a hard time warming up to strangers? Will you still look after them?
Absolutely! I’ve had plenty of experience with timid animals, many of whom are rescues dealing with past trauma or abuse. My approach is to always let them make the first move. Approaching a timid or scared animal too quickly can stress them out further and create a negative first impression.
I speak in a soft and quiet voice and move slowly and deliberately, avoiding any sudden movements. Patience and understanding are key. I respect their boundaries and give them the space they need to feel comfortable. It may take some time, but eventually, they’ll warm up to me.
Take Dagny, for example. She’s a sweetheart with her humans, but she’s still a bit wary of me. However, I’ve had the pleasure of looking after her and her siblings multiple times. While she may still hiss at me occasionally, I consider it a victory when she shows even the smallest sign of trust, like a slow blink or a cautious approach to the food bowl.
I’m perfectly content to give her the space she needs. One day, I’m confident she’ll approach me and maybe even give me a friendly rub. Until then, I remain hopeful and patient. Dagny is absolutely adorable though, right? In the photo, it may seem like I got really close to her, but I actually used my Nikon DSLR camera and zoomed in. A girl can dream though, right?
BLACK CATS ARE NOT BAD LUCK!!! While I might believe in some superstitions, this one is entirely false and downright cruel. Just look at that face! How could anyone think that such a cutie is capable of cursing you with bad luck?
However, in some cultures, black cats are believed to bring good fortune and protection. For example, in Japan, black cats are considered symbols of prosperity and are believed to ward off evil spirits.
