I think they're enjoying their playpen! They haven't attempted to escape since I moved the climber to the middle, which makes it just a leeeeetle bit too far for them to jump. I know that some day they'll be able to make the leap, but for now, they're pretty well contained. They are happily playing with all their toys, chasing each other up and down the climber. Looks like they're having fun!
My goal here is to get them used to the sounds, sights, and smells of being in the larger part of the house. I imagine it can be quite intimidating when you go from living in a 10x10 shed to a 10x10 bedroom, and then to a (seemingly) humongous space like my downstairs. I know they're probably going to hide at first, but I don't want them to! I want them to feel like they're at home down here. I hope it works!
