The kittens haven’t had much time out of the room since we’ve gotten them, and haven’t really seen much of Uncle Charlie. We tried letting Charlie in to hang out with the kittens and Molly Marinara about two weeks after I brought them home, and for a few minutes things were fine. But then one of the kittens floofed and hissed at Charlie, which kicked off Molly’s protective instincts, and a protective mama is a scary mama and now even if we put Molly in the sitting room and try to coax Charlie into the room to see the kittens, he refuses. (And I would never in a million years force Charlie – or any permanent residents – to be in a room of kittens against his will.)
I have let the kittens come out and sniff around a little (but not for long because the railing at the top of the stairs is wide enough for them to stick their heads through, and I can easily imagine a startled kitten running forward and falling to the floor below – I will be blocking the railing at the top of the stairs, I just need to get to the store to get what I need, which clearly has not happened yet), and the other day a few of them came all the way across the upstairs to Fred’s room and came face to face with some strangers.
The Ring camera caught (permanent resident) Alice going after a chipmunk. The girl can MOVE. (The chipmunk, however, successfully escaped.)
