Neville is very slowly becoming accustomed to me. He associates me too much with being poked with an insulin needle, or having blood drawn from his ears. I am trying to change that by often petting and stroking him.
He likes to have me pet him all the way down his back, and I can start him purring that way. Something I noticed about him is that when he purrs, the fur on either side of his lower jaw vibrates. It’s due to its length, I think, and how it grows. Whatever the cause, it is rather amusing to watch - though I won’t tell Neville that.
The Nevsky is happy to be happy!ReplyDelete
Neville is proving to be quite the character, isn't he?ReplyDelete
No, don't tell him that. :-PReplyDelete
His purring definitely constitutes the "good vibrations" needed right now!
I love that fellow.ReplyDelete

He is a dear boy.ReplyDelete
Neville is such a handsome boy.ReplyDelete
I'll bet that made your heart smile!ReplyDelete
He looks so lovely..! :).ReplyDelete
Or perhaps the word should
be..Elegant..! Yes! Elegant..!
I do have a soft spot for long furred kitties. Glad to see thatReplyDelete
you see, feel and hear that purr. Hope Neville continues to relax.
That would be a sight to see. And is there anything more soothing than a happy cat's purr?ReplyDelete
Take care and stay well!
That's a very good photo of him! He looks majestic,doesn't he? I love reading about your cats and their different personalities.ReplyDelete
Neville you are a handsome fellow and we would love to see that response to what we think would be a deep Man-Cat purrReplyDelete
