I just have to share Gabby's amazing progress in adjusting to her new home.
Gabby has made some GREAT progress the past couple of day. More of her personality is coming out. Instead of hopping up on things to explore she's now playing on them. This morning I could tell she did A LOT of playing last night; most of her balls have disappeared. YAY!!!
She absolutely loves her laser light. I'm making a big deal out of showing it to her and saying laser light a lot while playing with it. I'm going to put it in her toy box (it's designed for kitties and the batteries are hard to get out) and hope that eventually she'll get it out and bring it to me when she wants to play.
Last night when I went to bed I told Gabby "time to go to bed" and she trotted off to my room. I had to turn the kitchen light off first and the look she gave me was funny, it was like she was telling me "hey, you said it was time for bed, get in here." Like a typical kitty she didn't like me working on a search-a-word puzzle. At times she would stand behind the book and peer over and other times she'd stand right in front of it.
The other day she was attacking and pouncing on something. I decided to check it out and it turned out she was attacking a gum wrapper. I'm still chuckling every time I think about it. Last night she was really intent on getting something out from underneath the heat register in my bedroom. She had to really work at it. This time the object of her attention was a hershey's kiss wrapper.
The thing that most impressed me is when I came home this afternoon I immediately called Gabby's name when I came in. She came out of her favorite hiding spot in my bedroom to greet me. Normally she's scared when she hears doors opening and closing. I was really careful to be quiet so I wouldn't startle her.
Now I really feel like she's becoming MY kitty and not just a kitty who happens to be here, and it feels GREAT!!!
