i rescued my cat Slithis, when he was tiny. his previous owner left him out in the storms to get severe pneumonia and left him to fend for himself and come really close to death. i hand fed him because he was too weak to move from the position he was in. he was put on steroids and antibiotics to help him get better, it was a very slow recovery but he's clear of it now since i was the one to basically look after him because i cared and because i really wanted a black cat, he's literally become everything i've asked for. he's a big baby, he sleeps on my bed or only on my things, the other day he tried to steal my chicken i gave him half of it i stay in a different house for around a week and when i get back, he's waiting for me, he actually leaps into my arms and literally smothers me in love and kisses, in no time he's sleeping on me, purring away :D though he only likes a few people. he hates my sister, he doesnt go anywhere near her, her bed or her things.he's a quiet cat, he squeaks more than he meows but only when he's getting his food. he follows me wherever i go, when im outside hanging up the washing, he sits and waits with me till im finshed when my sister comes into the room he freezes or runs underneath my bed to get away from her.... the thing is. my sister isnt exactly very nice to him.... she screams at him and has scared him to the point that he tried to jump through a closed window. im just wondering why he shows me much affection and doesnt trust other people?
