Meet Ella. For now she lives in our guest room. She arrived Saturday morning and settled in quickly. Full of purrs and head bumps she soon started going to the door and giving us the “Let’s get out of here” look.
Then Batu started crying to be let in. Ella hissed, growled, and hid under the bed for a long time. That continued all day and into the next any time Batu came calling.
Yesterday afternoon Ella spent some time with me in the kitchen. She was delighted to discover part of her carrier. She tested out Batu’s litter box. Eventually she fell into a cautious sleep.
Today she explored our bedroom and bath while I worked on my French lesson. At first she was very scared. Eventually she started having fun exploring. She spent a long time sniffing where Kapas used to sleep.
She let me know she really wants to go outside. The window was cracked open. She jumped up and hung from the window ledge by her nails. No leaving the windows open around her. She will love our screened balcony.
Today when Batu came crying at the door, Ella stayed calm. I took this photo at that time.
We are making progress.
