I used to joke about writing a book called Cats Who Stare and People Who Love Them…
Vita would be the ideal poster girl for this sort of thing.
The caption next to her picture in the RAPS sanctuary gallery says: “I’m painfully shy. You can look but, don’t touch or I’ll disappear.”
She’s apparently better now than she used to be. Before, anything within a meter or more was too close for Vita’s comfort. These days, I can reach out almost to her curious nose before she wheels around and takes off. Shannon’s also found a way around the no-touch rule: a scary hand filled with food doesn’t count as a scary hand in the Vitaverse.
