As time has passed, both Rocky and Gustie are feeling more and more at home. Here's Rocky sleeping next to one of Misty's favorite toys, but inside the cylindrical stand.
Both Gustie and Rocky are taking their time getting close to Misty. Here are Misty and Gustie sleeping in/on Misty's crate.
Misty, who must watch her weight, was found to be eating the kittens' food, so some intervention had to be taken. The cylindrical stand was put on top of their "Colliseum" to prevent Misty from helping herself. The Colliseum is 32 inches tall, but Misty is taller when she wants to be! My little "Hummer" can be quite determined when it comes to tasty cat food.
Here's a typical scene around the house. Misty, Rocky, and Gustie all taking their own places in the living room.
These kittens are growing, and in order to grow, they've got to eat!
Then they've got to rest and sleep.
Rocky loves to watch the Olympics, but he's no couch potato, he wants to be part of the action!
Sometimes things work, sometimes they don't. Putting the cylindrical stand on top of the Colliseum just didn't quite work. Enter the 56 inch Kitty Tower, and one more place for the kittens to play.
This provided one more place to attract Misty's interest.
And another place for Gustie to hang out.
The relationship between Misty and Gustie and Rocky improves each day. Rocky feels quite comfortable taking over Misty's bed by the TV.
All three of them feel very comfortable on my bed! Misty seems to think that all is quite peaceful in her world, and can totally relax! This despite the fact that Rocky loves to swat at her whenever he gets a chance!
The kittens are also more and more comfortable with the big, black, hairy dog.
Yes, this is the life! Rocky the TV watcher, Gustie the dog's toy chaser, and Misty who really wants to play with these wonderful kittens!
