Well the kittens were a bit too old to be kept cage fostered for much longer. They were destroying the cage within twelve hours and were filling the litter box, so over the weekend I decided to let them out.
I sat with them for a while and they ignored me. I didn't have much time with them on Sunday but I was able to walk into the room and walk up to them and touch them. On Monday they ran from me and the little black and white one was quite snuffly, so I'm sitting here blogging hoping they become used to me. I have also broken out the Safe Spaces and Rescue Remedy and hope that they help. I wanted to give the little black and white one some goldenseal tincture for her snuffles but I couldn't find my stash of herbs, so I will have to go to the health food store today and get some. I gave her a little silver up her nose hoping that would help flush things out. If her symptoms get worse I'll go back to the shelter for more antibiotics, but considering how much she hates them I can't imagine that going well.
They still have very little use for me, which makes me sad since they are getting older and the chances of them figuring it out sooner rather than later is getting smaller and smaller. However they are out and about and playing while I'm in here so they aren't exactly thinking I intend to eat them, so maybe there is hope.
