Now before any of you get any ideas, NO.. I am NOT keeping her.. it is not going to happen.. I am hoping beyond hope that SOMEONE steps up and says "I NEED TO HAVE HER!!" before I bring her back for adoption to make it easier on me, but even if no one does, she will go back for adoption..
but I'm am absolutely head over heals for this kitten. She has so much spunk.. She reminds me so much of Ella, only better..
We are having some issues with communication as you'll see in the videos. I touch her and she immediately starts purring up a storm, and then throws herself on her back and starts 'playing' with me, but then this 'play' turns on a dime and she 'lunges' for me and bites and meows - acting very much as if this is no longer fun. I stop and she works to get back on her feet, and she will take a step or two away, but then turns and comes right back for more attention. I'm working on stopping before we get to the lunge bit, and if she does start to do it, I will end all play and put her in back in her 'condo'.
Warning, videos contain mews.. if your kitties are distressed by such things, you might want to turn the volume down or get headphones..
She will eat on her own when it is pointed out to her. She has yet to eat anything left with her over night or during the day. Last night I put her food on the textured blanket that I had been giving her KMR on. My hope was that she would recognize the texture as one that meant that food was coming, and she found the food on her own and started eating. Was it the smell of the food? was it the feel of the plate? or was it the textured blanket? *shrug* I left her with another plate of food and we'll see when I take care of her this morning if we need to put that blanket under the food for her. The blanket is covering the plate to keep her from accidentally pushing it off the plate..
While I was out shopping I kept seeing things I wanted to get for her including this photo frame when I did not get.. although part of me is still considering going back and getting it..
and this piece of fleece for her condo - which I did buy..
She has a personality bigger than my whole house. I can not wait till we get things straightened out communication wise and we both are more comfortable with the daily routine..
