Humans plan, Kittens laugh
As you may know I like to cage foster scared kittens. It makes me something good and interesting when I show up, because I bring food and I bring the ability to get out of the cage and play. These kittens are a little old to be locked four to a cage, so I thought I'd try leaving them out for the night after we had a recent visitor. But to do that I needed to make sure that I had access to them. Nothing ruins a whole days worth of work faster than having to chase a kitten to put your hands on it, so we blocked off the ability to get under the couch..
or so we thought.. remember this photo?
So despite it being pushed up against the wall and blocked the best we could, they found a way to get under the couch.. *headpalm*
However, when I went in the room to give them breakfast, each one of them came out on their own, walked up to me and told me off for breakfast being so late.. Which means they aren't going to be locked back in the cage.. thankgoodness..
Two major ways to win a kitten over, food and play.. today we tackle food with left over thanksgiving turkey.
Our little lion is so food motivated he forgot how big and scary I am, and even licked my fingers. Crazy pants and blue eye (yes yes I know.. names.. ) aren't food motivated. They ate some turkey because they were hungry, but they were "meh" about it. The black fluffy kitten still really has no use for me. She was interested in the turkey, but shied away from me when I tried to offer it to her. I was able to pat her a couple of times which was nice.
I'm going to try to get them in to be neutered soon. Another experience and then coming home to where they will feel safe will help them adjust and I would rather do that sooner then wait..
