    Another first for Echo! He just walked up to me and put his head in my hand and we have spent the last 30 minutes or so with love, scratches and petting all over him. You can just feel the muscles through out his body. It has taken 8 months to get to this point and I finally feel like he realizes how much I love the big ole kitty! :big grin:

    Thanks everyone. Probably not such a big deal to someone who's kitty has always been loving and affectionate, or if you could even touch them. For Echo, it is monumental for him to show this much trust. When he came to live with us at 2 1/2 yrs old, if you even looked at him, he was so scared he was incontinent of bowel and bladder.

    Laura, what you and Echo have accomplished is nothing short of amazing!

    I have tears in my eyes imagining that moment when Echo reached out to you :)
