So funny that you asked that, this morning I went in to feed CeCe and she was laying on the side of a kitchen chair I have in there. Seems to be her spot at night so I have a soft blanket there for her. I put her food there instead of her normal place and laid down on the floor mattress and she came right out to eat. I stayed nice and quiet whike she ate with some soft praises. Then she walked by my head over to her water bowl. I dangled my hand on that side of the mattress and she started walking towards it! She got about a foot away and stopped, then went over to her tower. Sooooo close! First time she has ever approached me. And she actually gave me a little meow this morning when I went in to feed her.
She is definitely getting more comfortable now that she has no bed to hide under. She sees us every time we go in there, we go in often to talk to her, letting her get used to seeing us instead of just feet going by. She lets me use a toothbrush attached to a wand to pet the top of her head and actually enjoys it. I never follow that with my hand, always trying to allow her to trust me. She will come to me if and when she is ready, on her terms. But seeing her so relaxed is like such a gift.
