Miss Elsie

Miss Elsie
My rescue-cat, Elsie, who my mum and I adopted from Bradford RSPCA back in 2007.She was a young stray, with no-name and came to us house-trained and tame but quite skittish and nervy. I grew up with cats and ours could be temperamental at times... but not like Elsie. She would flinch and cower if you raised a hand near her and she'd also smack at you (luckily usually with no claws!) and growl and hiss if approached when she wasn't expecting it. I suspect at some point she was maybe rather roughly handled - or perhaps teased by kids (she's still not overly fond of small children).

Anyways, whatever her past, Elsie very quickly settled down. A couple of years later, I wrote most of my undergraduate dissertation with a laptop balanced on one knee and this kitty-cat asleep on the other! She's a good little cat, loves to be petted and is happy to picked up - but when she needs to, Elsie can be pretty feisty - certainly keeps Barney-dog firmly in his place :)

She's a beauty! And a tough little survivor, too - good for you, Elsie! You gotta set rules for the dogs (and humans). ;-)

She is sooooo beautiful. Fluffy was made aggressive by a little girl who used to pick her up by her front leg pits and carrying her all over. Which is painful because their bodies don't go that way naturally. But she was declawed so couldn't really fight back. Until she learned how that is. Elsie looks a lot like Fluffy. :/
