Metamorphosis

2.5 years ago he was called Blackie, just for the color of his coat. This was Blackie after dinner. When he heard the key rings, he would yell for us to wait so we would know he was coming to dinner. he had only 2 meals a day and sometimes not even that as he would sometimes be afraid to come out if he was chased off by people the day before. Sometimes there would be feral dogs who would come for food left by others and chase him off.
Last year, on this date he looked like this. Still surprised and he was not allowed free reign of the whole house yet. so I would have taken this picture when I was home and it would have been late afternoon.
This was last Sunday. He owns the bedroom now. He had been allowed full reign of the house but he decided that my bedroom was best. Now, however, little by little he has decided to come out in the evening to sit with the family which was good. It allows the otehr cats to get used to his presence and for him to figure out what living with a family is like. It took Popps about a year to figure this out. Rezki is taking a much longer time. This will be his 3rd year in the house.

We believed in you from Day 1, Rez, and we also knew that you would become one of the Amigos!

Purrs,
The Chans

The most wonderful of news. We have tears of joy in our eyes. Rezki is slowly tegaining the part of himself that he lost when he was alone and unloved. Love always triumph!
