The kittens get a field trip


I've been thinking of ways to boost the kitten's self-esteem and thus their confidence and one of the more powerful tricks I have up my sleeve is to take the kittens out of the house for a quick trip somewhere else. Last night I thought I'd take the kittens out of the house for a bit, so I packed them up and took them to my office for about forty-five minutes.


They were fairly quiet on the ride in, just a couple of mews. Once we were there Sprite came right out of the carrier and started looking around. I tried to keep their area limited because I didn't want to have to track them down, so I attempted to keep them within the confines of my desk.


I got my computer and turned the music up and sang a bit to them. I tried not to move too much as I feared frightening them and causing them to panic. When it came time to leave I was a bit afraid they had gotten free and were hiding somewhere that I'd never catch them, and then I turned around and saw this.


I scooped up Sprite and put her in the carrier and brought them home. They were just as quiet on the way home, which was nice. Once I got home I went right back to the kitten room and Lemonade was happy to see them. She chirped at them and sniffed them and gave them a few licks and then it was business as usual. Everyone ate some and then it was time to take a bath.


All in all a successful trip.Hopefully, it will help the kittens realize they can handle anything. Time will tell.

  2. We realize now that two of the cats who came before us, Louie and Talia, were so much better socialized because they went to the office during their bottlefeeding and encountered lots and lots of people. Too bad all cats don't get the benefit of novel experiences like that.

  5. The cutest little fluffballs (well, except Gandalf), and by expanding their world, you'll get them to expand their friendliness. Yay!
