The furrbabies are slowly and steadily growing in confidence. On Saturday when they arrived the whole day was spent in a cubby-hole near the front door, the two of them cuddled up for safety with hisses for greetings to anyone who strayed nearby. The following day was much the same, though they had ventured out in the night to eat and use the litter tray and at 11pm a reccy-mission to the kitchen meant they found their way behind my units and resulted in a 20 minute rescue involving much dismantling of cupboards with a screwdriver. On Monday night around 11pm again they found themselves investigating the lounge and started playing with toys during what is apparently, the mad half-hour.
Last night all they heard was banging and drilling from the lounge as J and I put up a series of shelves which double up as a carpeted climbing frame for the boys. It raised their curiosity rather and the mad half hour turned into a mad hour as the two of them discovered a new game of who can get to the top first. If I get a chance I'll take a pic of the shelf set-up. Watching them grow in confidence and settle in is a real joy, each time they push themselves a little further I feel so proud of them !
Today I'm out buying latches for the kitchen cupboards and more carpet off-cuts for the balcony sun-room which will eventually become a total cat pampering room I think.
