It has been a hot minute since I have updated you all on George and Ruby.
And really, that’s because there’s not too much to talk about.
Progress is still going slowly but surely with Ruby. She is doing so so amazing. But the fact that she’s still making progress is amazing itself. I and the ladies at the rescue were pretty sure that she was done progressing. It’s typical for a semi-feral to only go so far in a foster home and then make the rest of their progress in a permanent home. However, with Ruby, she is getting better every day.
A new thing she has started doing is laying with me on the couch or on my bed. She typically stays at my feet, but just the fact that she wants to be close to me makes me so happy.
We’re still having issues with her attacking Precious and Finn. We’re working on some behavior modification to change that. Things like giving her treats when she’s around Finn and Precious and doesn’t react negatively, putting her on a little time out to cool off when she does attack them.
I have a feeling it’s going to be a lot of repeating the same things over and over and over again, but getting her into a little routine would be a really good idea.
I’ve also finally lowered the amount of wet food that they’re eating. They’re pretty steady with their meal times and certainly would never let me forget that it’s time to feed them. There’s a good chance when they get adopted, they won’t get wet food. Although, I will tell the potential owner that wet food is 100% the way to their little hearts.
There’s still nothing to report on George. My lord, he is the sweetest, easiest foster ever. He loves pets and snuggles and treats and toys. He’s so happy with even just a ping pong ball to play with. He loves cat treats and his Ruby.
Thinking on it now, I totally wish I had gotten to name them. They definitely would of been Jamie and Clare. It suits them so well. George being the big burly ginger and Ruby being the tiny, fiercely protective and motherly torbie. Yeah, it would have been perfect.
Anyways, if you have any questions, leave them below as always ❤

AWWWWWWWWW they're so lovely! People like you restore a bit my faith in humanity, because what I usually encounter is… pretty much the opposite, and it breaks my heart and makes me want to go hitting people with a blunt object. Ehem, enough negativity, because those cats deserve a few more hearts <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
They have such friendly faces, like my cat's (on the other hand, my neighbor's looks like he's leisurely plotting murder) 😛
