I’ve been able to touch the kittens without any of them trying bite me (though they still hiss a lot), so yesterday morning, I decided that it was time to open their cage and let them explore the house. I probably should have done it a week ago. But, anyway, they have been having a blast, climbing the cat tree (which goes almost to the ceiling, climbing the living room curtains, jumping around on the couch, sitting in the window and just running and jumping around. I left the cage door open, but so far as I have seen, they haven’t chosen to go back in. But maybe they did while I was at work. Somehow, I doubt that. So, after I clean it up, I’m going to return the crate to Cecelia, the person who loaned it to me. I’ll do that on Thursday.
Meanwhile, even though it hasn’t quite been 10 days yet, I deemed it “close enough” and I took the cone off poor Annie’s head. She didn’t make it easy for me, as she hates to be touched, but her cone is off and I hope she’ll be a little less miserable.
Oh yeah, I was able to grab onto the tortoise shell kitten when I got home from work last night and she purred for me again. Things are looking up!
