I know many of you will not understand my excitement but here goes!
Lily has been quite standoffish since we got her. She rarely cuddles and definitely would never sleep on myself or my partner.
Well, recently she began to get more affectionate and today she walked over to me, meowed and made a bit of a noise. I picked her up and cradled her, expecting her to jump - only for her to lay looking around for a few seconds before going to sleep.

I feel like she's finally trusting me enough after almost a month. She slept like that for 30 mins until I had to move a little then she laid down next to me and went right back to sleep.

Aww isn't that the most amazing thing! I know how excited I was she Jasper didn't run from me, imagine my excitement when he finally went to sleep on me( now I have to pry his 16 pound butt off me), keep up what you are doing and she will trust you and be your best companion!

Hmm... but I feel just fine.
Perhaps I should neck a bottle of wine and see what that does?
But if it makes me rude and abusive I do hope you will have my back for me bkilgore :mrgreen:

That is SO AWESOME!!! I know exactly how you feel! :) :)

It took my Yoshi (the white guy in my signature) two and a half years to sit next to my husband. The first time Yoshi jumped up and sat next to my husband it was on his birthday. We both teared up and I'm sure you did too with your Lily! Thanks for sharing your happy story, it totally made me smile. :biggrin:

Thank you all for your kind words!

I will continue to be her slave in the hopes she continues to bond with me! All advice is needed, I'm new to this whole bengal thing and you guys seem to know what you're talking about.
neonyellowclover - that sounds amazing. I did get a little emotional. I thought she'd be terrified of me forever so it was so great.
Did I miss some sort of inside joke? Regardless - I got the giggles from the banter in here :P.

Picture is the best I could do with one hand at the time. I've been showing everyone possible and no one gets why I'm so excited haha.

She's really made a difference in my life. I never thought it's what would happen but I find myself excited about coming home to play with her and stuff!

That is the cutest picture ever! You can tell she is 100% content!!! Isn't it crazy how kittens can have you wrapped around their little paw in no time at all!!! BTW the excitement doesn't wear off as she gets older! I am still in aww over my two! I can watch them play for ages and it still melts my heart when one(mostly BB) decides to climb into my arms for a cuddle!

I get why you're so excited, and what a lovely post - thanks for sharing your special moment with us! Aren't they just the best things for us these beautiful animals? She'll probably trust you more and more now and what a beautiful bond that'll be! x

I get it. My boy is an ex stud and it took him a while to become the smoochy lover boy he is today. I'll never forget the first time he rolled over and showed me his belly (a sign of trust and submission). Aaaw.

Thank you! I was kind of stunned as it was happening as she'd been so against being held or cradled... I'm glad it won't wear off. I love watching her play and playing with her. I do worry she's bored being the only (other than a rabbit) pet in the house though.

Thank you! Yes, they're amazing. I'm hoping the trust now grows! I'd love many more of these cuddles!

Awh! that sounds amazing. I didn't know about the belly thing! She's always rolling sideways I always assumed she just wanted a rub!

As long as she's not disemboweling the rabbit! :rofl:

She looks really settled and you are sooooooo under the paw! My boy spends most of his time on his back showing me the belly - Just to say "Slave, I need more prawns....." :sarcastic_hand: :scratch_one-s_head:

Haha! She's terrified of the rabbit so no danger! He just wants to sniff her but she runs off and hides from him.

The rabbit kicking thing happens often. She'll clutch and kick but rarely uses claws!
