Building kitten-y confidence - aka playtime
Playtime is vital for young kittens. It helps build eye / paw coordination, it stimulates the mind and the body, and it helps build self-esteem and self-confidence. Our little black kitten is much more outgoing than her tabby sister, so we worked on pulling her out of her shell. My husband attempted to get them to play while I took photos, and I want to say: Robyn, you should be very thankful for Fred and his excellent skills in helping you get those photos.
I was very impressed that we were able to coax the tabby girl out into the room to play with the toy, seeing as yesterday she ran from it. She is slower to trust that her sister, but she can do it... which is good.
Lemon was apparently just happy to have someone watch the kids for a while...
