The unbearable cuteness of being hissed at


Not one of these kittens trusted me when they showed up.  Two out of three are now willing to give me the benefit of the doubt, but the little Lynx Point boy.. he is steadfast in his determination to hate me, period.  He does not care that I give him yummy canned food, nor does he care that I scoop his box.. nor does he have ANY interest in playing with any toy I might wiggle in his general direction.. Nope.  I am NOT going to give you the satisfaction lady, I'll sit here and sleep if necessary..

Girl: "Again?"  Seal: "What do you want?" Lynx: "Go AWAY!"

He will eat. I've taken to supplementing them a wee bit with some KMR because they feel a little underweight and I want to make sure they are getting enough calories and he puts up with me forcing it into his mouth.. but he then goes and sits in the corner and mopes.  Even my husband noticed and said he was a wee bit worried about his lack of enthusiasm for anything and asked if he was okay.

Practicing his stink eye
Nope.. this stink eye thing is harder than it looks.. 
As I was trying to interact with him, he kept hissing at me.. I know it is wrong, but I so do adore being hissed at by wee kittens.. Also his sister thought she could escape the cage..

Okay, not really the right photo for the story.. as you can see Lynx is in the back 'moping'
but seriously, kitten tongue!  you can't blame me for posting it.
it was so cute, she and then her other brother were 'hiding' under my leg from me.. and they too hissed at me when I talked to them.  I broke out a feather toy and got them playing.  Lynx was still moping, and I was started to get worried.  He had NO interested in playing with the feathers.. which is so unlike any kitten ever, so I started composing a letter to the shelter in my head trying to describe why I was worried... when I decided to take him out of the cage and let him walk around. Well he LOVED that.. he waddled around towards the windows, then back again and in between the cage and the litter box box, and he got 'stuck' and mewed for help, then figured out how to get out, and then he PLAYED!!!  So yes, he's mopey in that he refuses to acknowledge me.. I can almost hear him say "this is not happening, this is not happening.. "

The girl and the seal point boy are playing, interactive, and willing to come to the cage door when I'm there, so I see them turning around in the next couple of days.. as for Lynxy.. *shrug* hopefully soon..

  3. Oh, Connie, they are so precious. I think he loves being free instead of in a cage. He just seems so unhappy being confined. I know he'll warm up to you. He's playing hard to get. Oh, I just want to hug him. I loved the pictures and your story.

  6. I had a very feral Lynx Point Siamese kitten. Hissed and hid. I just kept on talking to her and before she knew it, she liked me. The hissing doesn't stop but sometimes she couldn't help herself and she purred.

  11. Ditto, that stinky eye is just too cute. You have to admire his determination, though. :-)

    RE: the graffiti on my fence: There ALWAYS have been problems with neighbour kids hanging around that space, so I tend to watch fairly carefully. There are a couple of trees and some overgrown shrubbery behind my fence and all the kids come and hide there when playing their games. Mostly they leave the cats alone, certainly this is the first time for defacing the fence. I wouldn't be able to get outside (out my front door and around the back) fast enough to catch the kids, unless I was quite stealthy. I hope the police can identify the kid by his graffiti "tag," but I'm not expecting anything. I'm sure our police are bombarded with petty stuff like this.

  12. Awww, kitten tongue, so cute. Well all I can say is it'll take time for them to settle down and get used to you, and the new smells which teeny-weeny kitties do find scarey! Good luck and looking forward to the updates. Aimee xxx

  13. He will get use to you in time. We have a kitten that is a year old that we brought in from outside last weekend. The only person he trusts is my sister. He is starting to get use to me, but will not let me touch up. Can it take a cat awhile to get use to being inside after being outside since last July? During the day he is quiet and hides under the bed. But, at night he meows and he meows. We have him down in the basement because that is the only place in the house that is not used much. The door is open at all times and our two cats that we have go down their and no hissing happens at all. We have had him tested and everything came out negative on the tests.

  17. They are so cute! I like to call kitties like the lynx point "curmudgeons." I have a curmudgeon myself - Caster. He acts like he hates playing and hates cuddling and hates being lovey. If I pick him up to love on him, he growls and meows and swats at me like he's going to "get me." But then he just licks my hand. And in the middle of the night, if I wake up, he is usually cuddled up between my husband and me...purring. He's a secret lover and a secret player. Maybe that's how your lynx point will end up being. A loveable curmudgeon! ;)
