    Meet my new fella...

    I said “MY” new fella, because Sophie doesn’t want anything to do with this little guy…

    Poor thing started coming to our home some months ago, I thought he was giving Sophie a hard time and being bully with her and I used to make noises to scare him off, but then I realized it was HER who got extremely mad and dramatic every time he was around because he never did anything, so now I just keep the door closed and let the little guy hang around in the laundry area -especially on rainy evenings- and try to distract Sophie to keep her away from him.

    I also leave food and water for him every night and before leaving for work every morning (I even bought him his own food)…. And I always find the plate empty!

    I’ve never touched him, he's always scared and shy, but he doesn’t run away anymore when he sees me, maybe one of these days I’ll get to pet him

    I don’t know where is he from, I think he’s homeless because he looks very skinny and weak, and so dirty and doesn’t look young to me, but he has a sweet look on his eyes

    Oh, his name? My boyfriend named him “Sancho”…. I don’t know why, but it just stuck so he’s our little Sancho now.

    Maybe he doesn’t have a home, but he has now a little shelter here, with his very own food, clean water and a little cardboard bed on the washing machine to take naps and spend the night… and someone who gets worried whenever he doesn’t show (ME)

    Oh Sancho you are so handsome. You need to let Astrid pick you up. She can have you vetted and maybe you can have a forever home on the inside! Stay close to Astrid!

    Astrid, thank you for caring for Sancho. I fed Callie outside for 2 months before deciding to bring her in. Hope he'll let you help him either be with you or with someone else, although he seems like he has already claimed your heart!

    Hey Sancho welcome to PetTalk!! I hope you get less scared and let Astrid take care of you ... you know she wants to and ... you look like you need some loving.

    Eve is the same with other cats - screams like they are trying to kill her. I hope Sophie gets more comfortable with Sancho - he might be a great brother for her.

    Sancho is a great name and he's adorable. Hopefully he'll become more comfortable with you so he'll at least let you pet him. Thank you for taking care of him.

    Awww, Sancho does have a very sweet expression on his face. I'm sure he must think he's in heaven to have
    a nice, clean & dry place to sleep. (and food too)

    Good for you! I bet Sancho thinks he's won the lottery--shelter, food, water--a safe place to stay. Thanks for the pics.

    Hello Sancho!
    Never mind about Sophie, she will get used to you with time. She just isn't used to sharing her mom, lol.

    Astrid, go slowly with him. Don't try to pick him up until you have been able to pet him. You can sit on the floor and get him to come next to you and pet him, but don't pick him up the first few times. And when you DO pick him up the first time, pick him up, talk to him and place him right back down. Slow steps. It is VERY hard to do, especially for folks like me with no patience and meaning no harm to the kitty, I feel sure they must know this, lol. Does he insist on going back outdoors, or do you just put him out again?
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Hi, Sancho, sweet orange and white kitty! "Vive mejor" -- I hope your life will be much better now! Stay close to Sophie's house and her meowmie will help you

    Edited to say - I just noticed that in the picture of him in his box, his paws are folded under him -- Cassie does that when everything is okay with her. And in another picture he has his tail wrapped round him, which I think also means all's well in his world, right? Hi, Sancho! And hello, sweet Sophie kitty! *kisses*

    He's always outdoors, the laundry area is open, it's in the back, next to the kitchen and it just has that white grill door.. he just has to jump a little wall from outside to get to my back yard and there he is on HIS new shelter..

    I've never tried to pet him or touch him, because he's scared and I am the "mean witch" who used to scare him off some months ago, so whenever I see him I talk to him softly and tell him nice things to try to gain his confidence and I think it's working because he doesn't run away anymore when I go outside to give him food or water, he even falls into deep sleep when he's on the washing machine and he doesn't mind that I'm standing almost right next to him on the kitchen...

    Also, being an outdoor kitty, he must have fleas or worms or something and I don't want to put my baby girl Sophie in danger, so I'll take it slowly with him

    Sancho (love the name!), please let the nice lady pet you and hold you. Nothing but good things will happen if you do.! She loves kitties very much. Just ask Sophie, when she isn't upset, that is.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    His sweet face looks so much like my RB Luke, it makes me tear up. I do hope he continues to warm up to you and learns how wonderful some pets and luvies would be.

    Wow! I didn't realize that! you're right! That means he's feeling more confident! OMG!
    You should see his face when I'm talking to him, he looks at me as if he's paying attention and understands that I'm not gonna hurt him
    All he needs is love.... and food!
