Piper fell in love with my mom right away and accepted my sister, on her own terms. She did not like anyone else though, and still wont come out to see me. My sister's husband was on the 'do not like' list too, even though he's up there a lot with my sister. But things have changed! Piper comes out quickly for my sister though she still runs when anyone comes to the door. And she has come out when my brother in law in there and has even, I believe, let him pet her! My niece, Twin 1, was over the other day and I think Piper mistook her for my sister and came out, got startled by, "Hey, you're not who I thought you were!" Then went "Meh, I don't feel like hiding any more. So Hi, want to pet me?" I really hope next time I get up there that she will come out for me too!
I got my mom to take some new pictures to share Piper's progress from shy kitty to outgoing playful girl.
This is Piper's sunny spot! The back of the couch by the bay window. I think you can see how much she likes it, snoozing in the sun, glowing like a little angel!
Piper: Oh, hello. Do you like by soft cushy sunny spot? I loves it! See that empty spot on the bay window? That's my bird watching spot. My mom knows not to put anything there or I will rearrange it. And by rearrange, I mean toss to the floor behind the couch. We have an understanding now.
Piper: Do you see all these yarns? These are the most fun to play with! My mommy does something with 'plastic canvas' whatever that is, and I get to play with the strings while she does it!
Piper: I try to get it away from my mom! But she's a wily one... I can only tug the ends. But it's still fun!!
Piper: See the wonderful colors in my yarn waterfall? I can lay here and bat at them all I want! But I'm done already, so I'll just lay here and look at the pretty colors!
Piper! Where are you now? Where's the kitty? Hello??
Piper: Hee hee, keep looking!
Ah, the sun came out! There you are!
Piper: Shh, bird watching... Ooo! there's a little yellow one! And a red one! Bet they're crunchy..
The window behind the bed is Piper's new spot. She just figured it out and loves to see the birds on this side of the house, which faces a small bit of woods. She probably has a view of lots of squirrels, chipmunks, possums, raccoons, and who knows what else!
We are so thankful that Piper has decided that other people are ok now and has found so many wonderful places to enjoy her new home that we're putting this on the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
