I took Elsa to the shelter on Friday for a nail trim. I figure if I'm a little less afraid of her it would make things easier.
I was horribly impressed that the staff member took her out of her carrier right in the lobby and she and the manager took care of them right there. There was talk of getting her spayed - hopefully on Tuesday - and then I brought her back home.
Ella was unimpressed that her mom was gone..
|Party Time! Excellent!!|
|Oh, she's back.. OK.|
after the trip I thought I would push the envelope and try picking her up. The first time went not so smoothly, as she didn't trust me and had no idea what I intended to do, so I very quickly put her on the floor. After that I tried again and got her up off the floor and transported her and it went very well. I'm no where near ready to do the cuddle hold.. but maybe in time.
I also brought my husband down into the room. That went good too. She was over active as usual but he stayed still and nothing more happened than her asking to be patted. Ella however did her best to take him down. She bit his foot, rabbit kicked it, and worked her cute charms on him.. it was really sweet.
While I was at the shelter I noticed that both Tiki and Niki were still up for adoption. I so hope they went home this weekend..
|Pat me, hold me, snuggle me!! ~Tiki|
