The past two weeks, we’ve had a lot of new friends coming over to play. With that, we’ve celebrated often as they each accomplish things they may have never done ever before and definitely not in our home. We’re building trust in each other, gaining confidence, and learning that love prevails.
10th – I scooped cat poop for the first time in a year – gotta love those automated litter boxes
11th – Piper wagged her tail!! SHE LOVES ME! (Still working on a second time – darn)
12th – Willow came downstairs into Doggieville
13th – Beck let out the softest, most precious, long meow – well, it was sort of pathetic but adorable at the same time
14th – Zoe “stayed” for 2 mins – 2 WHOLE minutes.
15th – Beck and Willow learned their names! or at least responded to them
. – Piper took a treat!!!!!!!! From my hand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prob the first in her life
16th – Mattie gave me my first deep kitty wound as she bathed – and her front paws are declawed! Anything’s possible, I guess.
. – Willow jumped on the couch – a feat as heavy as she is. (We do the stair climber!)
17th – Beck stopped swiping at Zoe (understandable though)
. – Piper came to my brother and sister
. – SueAnne waited at the door before coming in. If you only knew how long we’ve been working on this – over 6 weeks!
18th – Willow slept on the bed.
. – Piper pottied outside! Thank you inventor of the zip line (Abbi’s really glad as she can now have her bed back in the room as that was P’s favorite spot – gross)
. – Mattie came out from hiding … when called!
19th – I helped give my first kitty shots
20th – Zoe learned “down” … FINALLY!
. – Piper went around me to the right! on the ground, dragging, but still.
. – Mattie stopped hissing at Pebbles.
. – Beck jumped up on the bed and curled up for the night. (Snuggled NEXT to Zoe!)
. – SueAnne raided the litterbox – yuck
21st – Mattie greeted me on the table – way out of her comfort zone.
. – Piper cuddled with me … without me pulling her on the couch, she asked to come up and I said yes, and she came!!
22nd – Mattie learned that scary places can be conquered while eating.
. – Piper went on a walk WITHOUT freaking out once at weird noises.
And soon … that list will be even longer!! We’re just about all party’d out!
