Whew!

The weekend was a LOT of work but so very worth it!

I disrupted Raksha and Baloo in order to clean the foster room and replace the floor. I made myself take my time and I did a much better installation than the last time — I hope. And a new colour:

IMG_5123I admit, it’s a little bright. But that just facilitates taking pictures of all the black fosters I’ve been getting! It’ll show the dirt more, too, but maybe that’ll make me clean better. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s such a lot of work to clear the room, clean everything, rip up the old floor, wash the cement underneath, let it dry, install the new floor, put everything back. I even put my new computer back in. With the clean room, and fosters who need more socialization, it was time.

When everything was set up, I moved Ace in with the girls. It’s a little early (his quarantine isn’t quite done) but already it’s paid off! I suspected that they’d all be good for each other and they got along fine. Within hours I went in and Baloo didn’t run away. I don’t know if Ace made her realize I wasn’t so scary, or if he made her more brave, or if he just exhausted her with playing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

She barely reacted when I petted her after taking this!

Later, when I went in, after watching Ace run to greet me, not only did she not run away, she actually came out in the open. Not to greet me but I still count it as progress so we had a nice game of feathers-on-a-stick. Well, shiny streamer-thingys-on-a-stick, but close enough.

How adorable is that??

Ace also loves that he has windows now especially the ones that look into the condo so he can see Murphy and Jonesy.

After moving Ace, I cleaned the bathroom and moved Casey and Ethan in there. I’ll have to be really careful to work on their socialization; the crate in the living room was really good for that. But they’ve already come a long way and Ethan even purred when I was snuggling him the other night! I’ve left the [clean] crate set up and may put them in there for part of each evening next week.

Look ma, no bars!

A lot of work but the entire condo smells (and feels) so much better! And I think all the felines — resident cats included — are happier.

(I even managed to submit Raksha and Baloo (both overdue!) to the website!)
