Continuing to progress

Vante has found the birds in the backyard! The other day she was 'chirping' at them and it was beyond adorable. She was clearly fascinated by them and spent several minutes watching them and enjoying their shenanigans. I'm guessing she was picking out the ones that were the yummiest. I'm encouraging her to go for the pigeons first, then the cowbirds. (Don't worry, she's just looking through the glass at them.)

She is eating well and we've finally gotten Amelia to stop eating her kitten chow. I had to place it on top of the desk that she frequents, knowing that Amelia won't have enough time to find it before she's caught.

Miss V spends lots of time in her room and only occasionally comes out. I wish she would hang out a bit more, but I don't want to push her outside her comfort zone. I've been letting her roam the house at night and she seems to enjoy it. At least until 3:30/4:30 a.m. when she begins pawing at my door and crying out for company, pets, scratches and love.

I truly think it's because she's lonely and is used to being around all the other cats all the time. If you think about it, that's a very drastic change for her. She's made so much progress and I think she'll continue to progress but it'll just take time. I've got lots of that and limitless love to shower upon her in the process. She's just awesome.

  1. I am so glad that she has found birds! Vante and Princess will have to get together sometime to determine the most effective bird call. (Princess is Vante's kitty cousin and loves to talk to the birds.)
