Our new little girl is settling in nicely. At first she was very skittish. We kept her in Lydia’s room for two days, then brought her out to roam. She didn’t utter a peep for days! But she did purr. So now she’s learning our schedule and she’s relaxing more.
She hops up into laps and chills, and plays with the laser light and wand toy. The first night she was here, she danced on Lydia all night long and Lydia got up looking like a zombie the next day, so she slept elsewhere the next night. We all laughed until the first night Lizzie was loose in the house and danced on ALL of our heads. No more laughing.
Lydia wants to change her name but can’t decide on anything. In the meantime we call her Kittems and Bitty (she has this soft tiny meow). If she doesn’t come up with something soon one of those is gonna stick!
She doesn’t really have a good perch in the house yet, so sometimes she just disappears. I hope to have something high with a nice cushion beside a window for her soon. She’s not as skittish now, but will run if you walk quickly from one room to another. Then she stops to see if you’re after her. Of course we aren’t so she acts like nothing happened.
She’s so silly, but she’s very loving and playful. We’re glad we have her, we have something to look forward to when we get home, and she is glad to see us. I’ve attached pictures. The first two are of the first night and the last was this morning with my son. Thank you for all the good information and your help. We look forward to many more years with our sweet Bitty kitty!
That is such a wonderful update!
