Feedom!


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.

  2. It took my Cody 16 YEARS to figure out I wasn't going to eat him. In the past couple of months, he has gone from running from me unless I have treats, to staying still while I walk past, to coming up to the arm of the chair I'm in, to finally relaxing on my lap for up to half an hour. I think these three will figure it out sooner rather than later.

    1. Eli was 10 before he started volunteering to walk up to us. 12 before he would step on us. Even now he is still flighty, but his life is soooo much better.

  4. We're hoping they'll come around to help their adoptability when they reach neuter weight.

    1. we'll keep them until they come around, regardless of what their weights are... well unless they hit five pounds and still hate me, at which point they'll probably go up as semi-social kitties. But since we have had some progress I don't think that will happen

  5. Paws crossed here too, that they come around sooner than later. Maybe your husband needs to sit quietly in the room, since all kittens seem to gravitate toward him. LOL.

    Purrs and peace.

    They all look relaxed and are having fun. We think they will get used to you.
    Some kits do take time. We send you lots of purrs for luck.
