    What a sweetie he is. I too love the name Sancho. It does seem he is warming up to you, but you're wise not to lift him yet, or let him be close to Sophie.

    You're safe now, Sancho and you'll have a wonderful future with your mom and step sister.

    Thanks for caring, Astrid!

    Hi Sancho! Welcome to Pet Talk! What a gorgeous kitty you are. You don't ever have to be afraid again. Soon you'll find out that PT kitties get only the very best of everything. We'll never know what experiences you've had but don't worry, Astrid will protect you now - you can trust her. And don't worry about Sophie, Groucho and a few of the other kitties plan to talk to her about how much fun a brother can be. Then once you're all settled in, you can go on Catmobile trips!

    Awww

    Yes, this fine cat looks a tad rough around the edges, sounds to me like you are showing kindness and dignity. Bless your heart, I figure with all your patience and care this fella will do just fine. SO much better than on his wee own, that's for bloody sure

    Hi Astrid,
    How is Sancho doing? It's great to know he can count on food, fresh water and a place to come to be comfortable and warm. Groucho sends you lots of purrs, headbumpies and kitty kisses to thank you for helping his fellow kitty in need. Could I ask you to give Sophie lots of lovies from me?

    Hi! Lovies for Sophie delivered, thank you

    I must report some progress with Sancho: he has a very sharp eating schedule and he asks for his food whenever he finds the plate empty! he has a cute little "meow! meow!" that sounds like a baby and knows that I'll put food for him and when I go out he doesn't run away anymore! He kept me company yesterday when I was doing the laundry, from a distance of course, but he stayed! Also, he's spending more time here, not only at night but during the day! When I came from work this week I found him three times taking a nap on his spot on the washing machine, and on Friday he came before it started to rain... he knows he has a safe place!

    BUT I still can't touch him I tried to pet him but he closed his eyes and started to meow scared poor baby!
    Well, step by step. He knows he has a shelter and a human willing to obey so it's just a matter of time I guess.

    I'm so glad to hear that some progress is being made and that he now knows that he has a place to sleep and eat.

    Astrid, how is Sancho doing? Is he still visiting you? Is he getting more comfortable with you, I hope so!

    Thank you for asking

    Things were going well, Sancho came every day and I could pet him occasionally, I was very excited! but one morning when I was putting some food on his plate he attacked me, he gave me an ugly scratch on my foot I don't know why because I did nothing wrong, in fact I used to put food like that every time as he waited sitted on the washing machine. Two days after that he did it again, and this time he gave a scratch on my hand and from that day on he meows and looks at me in a threatening way, not in the sweet or begging way he had some days before that, so I'm worried to open the door when he's there.
    Now I only leave the food on the plate so that he finds it whenever he comes.

    Also, he doesn't stay as often as he used to.

    The day of the earthquake he was here, I was so worried about him and Sophie but when I came home I found them both in deep sleep, as if nothing had happened, thank God.

    Oh no. Maybe he is hurt? Can you borrow a live trap and get him to the vet that way, or ask the vet about a tranquilizer to put in his food?

    I hope he can somehow get to a vet soon. Also, if those scratches start swelling get yourself to a doctor. Are you up-to-date on a tetanus shot?

    Hugs and prayers for you and Sancho both.
