kittens - week 3 -4

It's been another big week for Peggy and Claude. Early in the week Peggy learnt to climb the ladder and across the top of the kitchen cupboards and fridge, now called 'The Attic'. She enjoyed her "Peggy Only Space' for a whole 4 days before Claude worked up the courage to join her. Neither can get down by themselves and we hear a little chirpy 'where is my human elevator?' miaow when they are ready to descend. Today they went to the vet for the first time in our care. Considering Claude is too scared to meet visitors and Peggy puts on a cursory greeting but then also hides, they both coped very well with their outing. They saw dogs and babies and bunnies. I think they had a culinary interest in the latter. They are enjoying sleeping on our bed and have mastered the art of a claw-in-the-face to wake their human when they are ready to play. No glass of water belongs to the humans anymore - they're all handy hydration stations for the felines now. They are getting very curious about 'outside' but are not allowed out for another 6 weeks. :( Oh yeah, I also made them a dinosaur toy.

Peggy the Climber

Peggy and Claude - 10 weeks from ingrid k brooker on Vimeo.

Peggy had a big adventure today. She climbed all the way up an 8 foot ladder by herself and up over the fridge and cupboards. Claude just took it easy.

Week 2

Molly Meets Peggy from ingrid k brooker on Vimeo.

It's Peggy and Claude's second week at the McCrooker household and they are settling in well. They have conquered and thoroughly explored the entire house, survived their first encounter with the vacuum cleaner, met guest humans including a 3 year old, learnt to climb to the third rung of the ladder all by themselves and have discovered how cosy human beds can be.

They are much more confident and brave, come when called, like following us around and are becoming wonderfully snuggly lap cats. Claude likes being held like a baby (Ingrid's dream come true), likes sitting on laps and is generally a big foof head. Peggy prefers to perch just near her human rather than on them.

They love each other and cycle rapidly between curling up with each other for a snooze and then wrestling, chasing, playing, climbing, conspiring, colluding, tail biting, and discovering new territory together.

We LOVE them.
