Basha the Not So Bashful Kitty


One of the greatest triumphs of being a pet sitter is when a shy cat comes out of hiding to see me such as my new 12 year old friend, Basha. I was pleasantly surprised that she not only stayed during the entire visit but she also insisted that I massage her with her wrapping paper tube. I wish my camera was faster than she was while she rubbed against the tube but I thought this photo was just as cute.


Another favorite activity of hers is to sit in front of her cat tree as soon as her owner calls her and then rubs her claws on the scratching post knowing that a tasty treat waits for her on top of her perch. 

Again, she's so quick at performing this trick that I couldn't snap a picture fast enough!


Since she warmed my heart for trusting me so quickly I spent a few extra minutes listening to her purr some more before I left to visit my other four-footed friends. 

If you live in the Dover, New Hampshire, area and would like me to visit your shy or not so shy cat please contact me. Meeting new friends is a real treat!

    1. She does love that wrapping paper tube! I've never met a cat who likes to be rubbed by that until Basha came along!

  2. I love it when my shy ones come out of hiding to greet visitors. It's all about the human's energy, so yours must be exceptional! We lived and worked in the Portsmouth area for 15 years (Exeter, E Rochester, Berwick) before we moved further north near Augusta, ME. I know Dover very well. Let me know if you have any associates up in my neck of the woods! ~LisaCo9T

    1. I agree that pets can sense a person's energy and can figure out if he/she genuinely love them and that's why Basha came out of hiding, I believe.
      I love Dover because of the quiet and the community feel but Portsmouth is a fun city to go to!

  3. She looks like she really feels comfortable with you and the camera.
