When Stephanie Perfect first moved into her new home, she noticed a wary cat peeking through the trees on the other side of the street.
Stephanie started to leave cat food outside, and the fluffy tramp started coming to her territory every day.
At first, he did not touch the treat in the presence of the woman. But as soon as she went into the house, he sneaked up to the porch, attacked the food, ate and immediately ran away. This ritual continued for more than six months.
A year has passed. The cat learned the feeding schedule and at the right time began to get closer to the front door.
One morning, Stephanie woke up and was surprised to find the cat on the porch looking straight at her. The woman did her best to suppress her excitement because it was important to move slowly and silently so as not to frighten off the guest.
Having thus secured a trusting relationship, the woman took her four-legged friend to the veterinarian for a full examination. Buddy was found to have the immunodeficiency virus. Cats with this disease can live long and healthy lives – the better they are cared for, the longer they live.
The woman won the trust of a stray cat for a whole year, and he turned into a big domestic fluffy!
Eventually, he started going inside and even stayed overnight if it was especially cold and windy outside. Gradually, he got more and more accustomed to being at home.
Buddy decided last year that he didn’t want to be a street cat anymore. “He became 100% domestic,” Stephanie rejoices.
“Now he lives like a king.”
