It amazes me that a month after we got the kittens, we’re still slowly making inroads with the skittish ones. Yesterday I was sitting in the kitten room petting Tina Louise when Gilligan came over to the cat bed nearby, laid down in it, and looked at me like, “WELL?” He let me pet him for a long time before he decided he was done with me and ran off to play.
Spanky did the same thing at some point yesterday. They’re still skittish, and if you reach out for them when they’re running by, they scamper a bit faster away from you, but the fact that they let us pet them is HUGE, and I honestly didn’t think we’d ever get to this point.
There’s hope for them yet!
Tina Louise will likely be going to the pet store tomorrow. Y’all think good thoughts in her direction so she gets adopted fast, won’t you? I don’t want to see her still there on Monday morning!
