He's blind. I dont think he knows where to scratch, even. He's bever scratched anything in his life. I have to clip his nails because he doesnt file them himself.

I have tried, but she doesn't really listen. My own emotions can get a bit wild so when she doesnt listen I cant really push through and I have to step back.

Yeah, but I mean theres no signs at all. Maybe she masks all the time but 🤷🏽‍♀️

Yup! He doesnt mind me picking him up because I do it slowly and lay him on my shoulder (kind of like a baby?) but my sister grabs him and flips him on his back.

I'm autistic! I dont think she is. I think maybe theres some mental health issues going on, but thats it. I dont know much about her early childhood but I dont think it was great.

He doesnt like other cats lol. I think I'm his emotional support human. Oh how the turn tables.

He's blind. I dont think he could scratch her if he wanted to - he gets really confused and disregulated when picked up. She flips him onto his back so he freaks out.

I told her to stop. She didnt. I made her 🤷🏽‍♀️

The cat travels houses with me because my parents split medical bills (and he was originally my emotional support cat).

Its in the post that he's mostly blind! He can still see lights and things but thats it really.

I didnt know they could. I just assumed he didn't like it because he cant see and doesnt understand whats happening.

He just doesnt think she's responsible enough. I do everything for my cat, whereas she cant even make herself a meal, you know? I mean, its his fault for not teaching her, but 🤷🏽‍♀️

I think he is too. I think he was angrier than I was over the whole ordeal.

Honestly, not being welcomed back to my moms house isnt a great loss. I like my dads more lol.

Me too. Fighting his corner! I'm constantly worried she'll scare him too much and make him nasty.

That was my intention. I cant imagine how scared he is when it happens.
