We have been holding them, snuggling them, kissing them, playing with them, and feeding them as much as humanly possible! We have subscribed to the Intense Love Method of Socialization for these kitties (TM) and I can't believe how well it's working. My daughter brought them into my bed last night and we snuggled with them, and I got this picture when they fell asleep:
Do you think they love each other?
And then they stretched out and Sissy Cat reeeeeeaaaaaally got comfortable! She slept like this for half an hour!
When I went into their room this morning, they were both on the daybed and just looked at me (they didn't run away and hide under the bed). Such progress!
They had their first vet appointment yesterday, and they both are healthy and doing great. Of course, we won't know their FIV status until they are a little older (maybe next visit), so I have THAT to worry about in the mean time, but I am determined to be optimistic about it.
Today I am Thankful for sweet baby kitties.
