BETH and OLIVER were kittens when they came to C.L.A.W.S. in the autumn of 2016 and are now are about 7 years old.
Beth was always the shyer of the two and Oliver kept a brotherly eye on her. She hid behind her bed and it was a long time before she ventured on to the shelf at the front of her pen and even longer before she allowed her carer to stroke her gently on the side of her face.
When the second enclosure had been completed she, along with Oliver, Meg and Ruby, were the first residents.
With the added freedom she was able to ”escape” on to the shed roof. On good days you can see her ears poking over the ridge of the roof and on very good days she ventures down on to the cover over the litter trays where she can eat the treats that have been left there for her (if the other residents don’t get them first !)
When everything is quiet she comes down to eat her food and on chilly winter nights she curls up in a bed in the cat cabin.
We are sure that in her own way she is happy !
Is it ? No, it can't be, Yes it is - it's BETH !! At last dear Beth has started to emerge from her bed (or litter box) - not often but it's a start. We are delighted !
