Saturday Sweethearts

Iggy here!

I've been living here for 3 months now and things are mostly going well.



When Mommy came to the shelter to adopt me, she promised me three things.

1.) I'd be loved for as long as I live (so far so good).

2.) I'd always have food, fresh water and medical care when needed (so far true)

3.) Bella will be my girlfriend (LIES!!).

Bella is GORGEOUS!  I can't stop watching her.  I love the way she stomps around.  I love her adorable little doll-face and I've even grown to love her little singing performances with various articles of  laundry.

Look at those smouldering eyes and fluffy forehead!  I'm head-over-heels in love.


The problem is - she wants nothing to do with me!

I asked Samson for advice on many occasions because he obviously has it going on with the ladycats.  Deli is crazy about him.


I've tried everything Samson has suggested.  I've tried being gentle yet persistent, saving some treats just for her, telling her 'Mommy said you were supposed to be my girlfriend' and I've even used Samson's signature move - exposing myself completely while acting indifferent...


...Bella remains unimpressed.


I need help wooing the girl of my dreams.  Any advice is welcome!


Iggy

Oh Iggy, just don't give up. That Bella is gorgeous but she is not exactly friendly with anyone. She must of had a bad relationship with someone along the line. You really have gotten very handsome and we knew that you were getting such a nice home. What a lucky kitty you are for sure. Take care.

Iggy, you will win her over someday!

Bella is just playing hard to get, we think. Perhaps a nice game of Da Bird or Neko Flies might help? Or a ride in a car together (Mommy says this usually works....with rabbits. MOL).

Hey guy, don't give up! I wrote a poetry for my special ladycat friend and it worked!

Iggy, dude, you are making yourself WAY too available! We girlcats find that BO-ring! You've got to play it cool and pretend she does not exist. Then she might get interested.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Iggy, we hate to break it to you, but there are some cats that truly just want to be only cats. Maybe she'll come around in time, but it won't have anything to do with you, personally, if she doesn't.

Maybe the PetNaturals or Vetri-Science Composure treats would help Bella? Or the Zylkene Derry sometimes get (from the vet, natural product, been around the UK for several years but new to N.A.).

Julia Williams said...

You should play hard to get -- that usually drives them bonkers and makes you irresistible!

P.S. Tell your Mom that we have a Cats in Boxes photo contest going on and would love for her to enter you and your kitty siblings!

Hang in there Iggy. Bella won't be able to resist forever.

Random Felines said...

we would love to help but....we got nothin. good luck!!

BeadedTail said...

We don't understand Bella at all because we both would love to be your girlfriends Iggy! *swoon*

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Aw, poor boy.. See if you can get your mommy to take and rub your scent all over her, maybe using a soft cloth. Then when she cleans herself, she'll be getting used to your scent, maybe she'll start liking it. (not my own idea, saw it work on another blog, maybe Mark's Mews?)

Sweet Purrfections said...

Iggy, it's so good to see you! We think Bella is a lot like our sister-before-us, Sweet Praline. She's a tortie Persian and they can be a little bit of a diva!

The Island Cats said...

Iggy! Dude, play hard to get...then Bella would be all over you...in a good way! ;)

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

they are sooooooooo beautiful!

meowmeowmans said...

Iggy, all we can say is to keep on trying. Bella will realize how handsome and wonderful you are at some point. How could she not?

~*Connie*~ said...

what you have to earn is so much sweeter.. Hopefully it doesn't take too much longer.

JC said...

How cute are you !!!

At least your on the same couch without her running away. That's good sign.

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Yes-Bella is playing hard to get-Ladycats can do such things. I bet she likes you lots....betcha by golly wow!

Poor Iggy! Unrequited love is so painful, and the yearning never stops.

Who can blame you for being smitten with Bella -- least of all, her.

My only advice is PURRSistence. You still haven't been in your new furever home very long. I think time will take care of efurrything.

CCL Wendy said...

It's me again! Just thought I'd tell you that Bella and Iggy are on the LOLSpot again. Poor Iggy!

Karen Jo said...

Be patient, Iggy. It took Oja a month just to decide that she would be in the same room with us. Now she snuggles with me and Spyro both.

Oh Iggy, Bella is a gorgeous beautiful girl and I know she will finally show you that she likes you too. She is just trying to get her thoughts in order...keep your hopes up. She IS gorgous but so are you. xxoo
