So much changed this week – and this look tells it all! The kittens figured out how to get past our makeshift barrier into the rest of the house.
Kitten chaos ensued!
Little by little, they’ve been discovering the larger space…
Getting a fresh look at the outside world…
Discovering that epic adventures are to be had on the stairs.
Queen Shibumi the Instigator is dauntless. She and Scout shocked us all this week by getting up into the basement ceiling. Thankfully with the lure of food and toys, we were able to get two dust-covered kittens out safe and sound.
Not to be left out, Escher found his way into the same spot later in the week despite our first attempt at kitten-proofing. Of course, no matter what mess they create or barrier they break, they feign innocence incredibly well.
With all of the new space, grand adventures and many a big “No!”, there’s been more distance between us and the kittens this week. Exploring the brand new world was certainly more interesting than we humans.
We’ve had to keep a close eye on these little ones and anticipate, as best we can, what they’re dreaming up next.
Still, there have been lovely, cute and quiet moments. We’ve had a few pets and purrs along the way.
And though I’m learning that progress is anything but linear, everyone’s starting to feel at home.
