Despite my good intentions Max and I were at odds. Then we moved. I had no time to grab him and hold him, hoping he would respond. Funny thing happened. He responded. This cat who did not want to be near me wanted to be near me. Don't get me wrong, he still hates to be held. BUT he comes to me, lets me stroke him, and purrs like a lion.
The part that disturbs me about my relationship with Max is that I was Max. How could I not recognize that I was treating this darling creature the way I was treated? I am grateful that I did learn that love comes on its own terms. So very grateful.
