Sascha is doing very well. I don't know if it's because of the medicine, the chicken baby food (recommended by the Animalkind lady who works upstairs with the kitties), the time getting used to being here -- or a combination of all -- but her "safe" places are much more out in the open, and she's venturing beyond them more and more. She even played with a big satin ribbon yesterday, which was wonderful to see!
She's starting to groom herself and engage in various other catlike activities, e.g., rolling around on her back, sleeping on the living room rug, doing the butt-in-the-air big cat stretch, and purring like crazy when petted. But... She still startles very easily and needs to be consistently reassured that we're all on her side.
Sascha is very curious about Sister Carmela -- who's doing extremely well, by the way -- approaching her carefully and even trying to play together. Carmela is a perfect role model. Sascha sees her get brushed, for example, and realizes that's an OK thing to do. She sees Carmela go upstairs or downstairs, and pretty soon she's doing the same. They are a great duo. . I'm so happy to hang out with them every day!
I can't help but wonder what might have happened to them if they hadn't received the care, love and attention of the Animalkind staff. (But I don't dwell on it because it's too painful to consider.).
