Penny is so beautiful! Her eyes remind me of my Willow.
That's wonderful!Day 9: I read to the kitten a little before bed, then I slept in the bedroom from 9:30 to 12:00. The good news is I actually fell asleep during that time, which means the loud meowing must have been somewhat limited. The other good news is that she came out when I was asleep in there and ate and used the litter box. She woke me meowing loudly from the windowsill behind the blinds.
Because of the meowing I had to leave at that point and go to the living room. I came back a few minutes later because I forgot something and she was on top of the bookshelf (it’s 2 ft high).
I slept the rest of the night on the couch. I can only sleep with earplugs and headphones playing music to drown out the meowing. So I don’t know how much she meowed after that. I suspect the usual amount.
But, I’m happy about this first sign of progress!
Penny is still handling things like a champ so far. Such a good girl!
Oh no. They can certainly squeeze into the smallest spaces, can't they.The bad news is that all her exploring led her to find an even more inaccessible hiding spot (worse than under the bed), under a cedar chest.
Poor Penny. Keep telling her you love her, and that she's not being replaced. She's a beauty, btw.Penny was having some separation issues, pawing and meowing at the door,
It's amazing what they can squeeze in to isn't it. I have stuffed pillows and towels and even cardboard boxes that would fit under those tight places to fill them up so the kitties can't get in there. Under bedside tables, I have a cedar chest, dressers, chests, end tables... Once I thought I had stuffed enough and Gracie, my newest one, still found a way in. So I stuffed more. I've gone to the Thrift Store to buy big towels and blankets when I didn't have enough on hand.Day 10:
The bad news is that all her exploring led her to find an even more inaccessible hiding spot (worse than under the bed), under a cedar chest. Hopefully she doesn’t decide to spend all her days there.
