Bad kitty

Bad kitty is getting closer, but not real friendly yet. He is now living in my outside porch. I can talk with him and feed him, but the few times I have pet him he spits and backs away. It's a slow process getting a cat to feel safe. I'm trying to get him in my house before winter. I'll just keep trying. Perhaps if I gave him a better name he'd like me more. :-)
I think Bad Kitty is a cute name! Hope you can get him in by winter

You will win! Bad Kitty does want a warm and loving home but he doesn't trust you yet get some of that cat plant thing they love, what's it called?

Wow what a nice Kitty Margaret.....Yes Kerri rightly said cute Kitty....

Ahh ... I think that by the time Winter comes, he'll be a willing "adoptee!" I still think that he likes you alot .... but is slowly adjusting. He knows a good home and owner when he sees one. You'll both win in the end. LOVE the capture!!

I had my own Bad Kitty and while he wouldn't let me pet him, he did come into the house when he thought I was away from the room that opened to the garden. Then sadly one day, he never came back. Hope he gets indoors before it gets cold. Here's my "bad kitty": http://365project.org/nancyperry/365/2012-01-25

Wonderful capture, he's so stripey!!!! I'm sure he's just checking you out and will soon adopt you!

Bad kitty does have the look of still being wild, we had a cat come into our yard ,it had the most beautiful blue eyes, the 2 dogs and i were forever chasing it away, then one day when i was sitting out the back reading it just came and jumped on my lap, in the end the cat adopted us and the 2 dogs. they are all deceased now, but probably still hang out together.our new neighbours have 4 cats and spend more time in our yard than thieirs, just have to worry about our fish.

His expression does seem to soften a bit. Your story really reminds of the taming of the fox in the "Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint Exupery. Do you know it?

A fabulous shot. What a face....hopefully he will continue to soften in his interactions with you.

He looks very grumpy, but he has such a beautiful coat. Hopefully he will adopt you, then we can get some photos of him looking happy :)
posted October 20th, 2012  
Well he looks quite serious yet, and hopefully you can convince him to change his attitude.

He is such a cute kitty. Beautiful shot. I hope he'll eventually be comfortable enough to come into your house and will like to be petted.

Fabulous capture! Splendid portrait of 'Bad Kitty' - yes, maybe a better name - 'my blue eyes' might work! Good Luck!

@jannaellen Janna, I don't know that story, but I will look it up.
posted October 20th, 2012  
Just keep going and hopefully he will trust you soon
posted October 20th, 2012  
ahh! I am sure you will win him over with your love! great shot :-)

He looks quite sweet really and I'm sure he will realise how lucky he to have found you and come in! Great shot of him though. I like his stripey coat - it's really nicely marked
posted October 20th, 2012  
Awww, he is so sweet. Love his stripes and gentle expression. Fav.

He doesn't look in bad condition - I'm sure a warm fire when it's cold out will soften him up! Our pension advisor said he visited a house out in the Fens (East Anglia - very flat, rural and sometimes isolated) and as he walked past the dining room he noticed a massive cat lying on the dining table. The owners said they would go in the kitchen as they couldn't use the dining room when the cat was in there. It clearly liked them as it brought them rabbits and hares and on one occasion - a deer (!!!) - but it would pounce and claw and bite if they tried to move it or stroke it. Your bad kitty is looking like Bambi in comparison!!

@judithg : A deer-slaying cat? That sounds seriously scary! Reminds me of the cheetahs slaying an ostrich on David Attenborough...

He's gorgeous and looks well-fed. Hope you succeed!

Beautiful shot.

Soooo cute, lovely shot!

I just love his stripes! He looks well-fed and will want to get out of the cold when winter comes, I'm sure.
posted October 20th, 2012

Oh I love this cat shot. So serious
posted October 21st, 2012  
He looks serious! Probably not the type that enjoys too much physical contact. Beautifully captured! 8)

What a stripy kitty! Great picture. I'm sure he appreciates your efforts, however slowly he's progressing :)

FAV !!!

Good luck getting him to trust you. It can be a long process but patience has its rewards! ;)

You could shorten it to BK, sorry if someone has already said this, playing holiday catch up; He will be in before winter, he is just letting you know who is boss
posted October 23rd, 2012  
Haha! He does suit his name but maybe if you tame him and get him indoors by winter, you could change the name to Good Kitty... or even Smart Kitty!
posted October 23rd, 2012  
That is wonderful of you! You are patient and kind... Bad Kitty is a cute name for him! :) He is very handsome, good capture.
posted October 24th, 2012  
He may be bad, but he sure knows how to pose for a beautiful portrait.

i noticed that you have a love for animals ..... great shots!

Lol Bad Kitty. For being an outdoor lonely cat, he certainly looks like he is eating well, lol. You are right about how long it takes for a cat to give his trust, keep at it, he will come around.

@wjw1741 Hi Warren, I've been feeding this guy since July. I started putting out water for the animals when the creeks dried up this summer and that's how I got him. He was so skinny then. Now he is pretty healthy.
