I have seen incremental improvement in her behavior, day by day.
I know she’s a bit hard to see. She’s a tortoise-shell female, spayed. I’m guessing she’s about 9 months or so. I named her Kitty, after Brenda’s first cat (The Closer). She always called Kitty ‘he’, when she was female. The vet told me she’s a ‘she’, so I’m cool.
She’s allowing DH and DD24 to pet her, and she is venturing around the apartment more. She’s chosen to sleep in the cat carrier, though we leave the door to it open. Shortly before I took these pictures, the puppy was also up on the couch. A little bit at a time and a whole lot of patience.
I told my daughter that I want to give her more time; I’m thinking another week. Obviously, if Little Bit gets sick again, or if Kitty has actual fights with any of the others, this is subject to revision.
