Ella the kitten after surgery

Hello everyone! I just wanted to let everyone know that the kitty is back home and is doing absolutely fine!
It was hard getting her to settle down and take some pictures! The surgery went great, the doctor said that the leg is even straighter than before. Haha
You can kind of see her broken leg. It looks kinda scary cause they had to shave it of course. But she is so happy now! And she will heal completely by the end of semptember.
The kitty wants to thank everyone for their love and support. It really means a lot to her she told me.
Now if only we could fix her biting and scratching habit... Also, we are thinking of calling her Ella. Which means "come" in greek. Because we are trying to get her to understand just that word  so she will come when we call her. So far no luck be we won't lose hope :)

Have anyone tried to train their kitten? Did they respond at all? Any advice would be helpful :)

  4. Big kiss again from Kitty & me to Ella and you!
    As the matter of fact I've managed to train Kitty so she's comming when i say "come sugar", or "come Loooove" ,and of ccourse only by her name. It's not that hard at all. You should decide who from the 2 of you gals is dominant over Ella and start with a simple learning of meaning NO in some usual situations. It should be parallel with some sound like snapping fingers while you're gently moving your ella to a place (or something else) where you think she should be. Of course, cat's are individuals and the success may vary but don't loose hope. To train her to come Whiskas pouches works fine. Blackmail! But be sure she knows who feeds her and it'll do most of the work. Send me a mail if you want to ask me anything 'cos I have cats for 4 years and learnt everything! It's too much to write it all here ha ha!

    much success

    xoxo

    1. Thank you so much for your long response!!
      I followed your advice and she kinda learned to come when I say her name. Which is wonderful!
      But with the biting we didn't have much luck.. I think she just loves it.. :(

  5. How confidential! I just rescued a kitten too! I've had him/her for a week and named it Ziggy Starduts. It's so hard not to fall in love with them immediately. Glad your kitten is doing good. Give Ella a kiss for me!

    Oh, when Ziggy bites or scratches a make a loud psssst noise (kittens are afraid of loud noises. I read.) and gently tap his nose. It takes persistence but he always responds. Eventually. Lol, good luck!!

    Here is a link to my kitty post:

      I'm trying to do the same method with Ella but the think is she absolutely enjoys biting me. She purrs all the time while she tries to bite me... I don't know why this is happening...
      But thank you for the advice!
