Caturday: Tutheran - the saga continues
This is not Mr Winky! Caturday fans with long memories will remember Tutheran, the black stray that’s been hanging round our house for a few years, causing misery and mayhem by fighting with the other cats.
You may also remember that we trapped him so that we could take him to the vet and have him relieved of certain body parts which may have been contributing towards his aggression. I found a home for him but it never came to pass so he’s been continuing to lurk around the garden, beating up our cats and any others which care to brave the territory. We couldn’t get near him as he ran away as soon as he spotted us.
Fast forward to about a week ago, when daughter decided she was going to “try to tame him”. To say I was sceptical would be an understatement. But I underestimated the power of the Cat Whisperer: within three days – and a few bites and scratches later – she was able to stroke him. Now he comes when she calls and rubs around her legs! He trusts me a little, too... I’ve even managed to brush him!
Despite remaining quite nervous, he really is a sweet cat... around humans. He’s still horrible to other cats. So if you know anyone who is in need of a cat, doesn’t have any other cats or dogs, doesn’t live near a busy road and is willing to be cautious and patient around him, please let me know. They need to be willing to keep him inside for a couple of weeks, and they mustn’t live too close to me, or he’ll probably just come back. It’s quite an ask, I realise, but you never know!
