Hi! I ended up deciding to leave the door slightly ajar so that if she ever goes up because she really wants to go out she’ll realize it’s open. I was worried if maybe kittens shouldn’t be left alone in a big space like that for so long for their safety. Figured I was being a little bit too much ot a helicopter parent and that she needs to be able to use her litter box in the living room anyways.Update: After about 3 weeks together mila has opened up to me tremendously! Yesterday was claw trim day and I had been sweating it for days… but she did sooo good she was purring and looking up at my for pets the whole time. I’m glad she’s so trusting of me. She’s still timid towards the outside, new people, and all sounds. Today I’ve started moving her things out of my room like her litter box, and cat tree.
Question for everyone - Should I leave the door open at night when I sleep? I’m not sure if it’s okay for her to roam unguided for so long throughout the apartment. I don’t mind the clipping since she’s so calm with me doing it. I didn’t realize how lucky I was to be able to do that with her! Mila is the literal definition of a scaredy-cat sometimes she’s scared of her own shadow, which means when i’m holding her and she gets scared of something the claws come out from fear and it can leave my back in scratches when they’re not trimmed. She also would probably tear my carpet up. View attachment 431916View attachment 431917
