Proud Mama

My little girl is sooooo brave! Ella just ventured outside for the First time!

We usually open the outside door and the door to the offi- er, the door to Ella’s room and let all the cats go out. But, they pester her (and us, when it’s close to eating time) so much while we’re computing, so we started closing Ella’s door. Then, it was just the three of us and she can come out to frisk without being smacked around.

This time, while letting the other kids outside, I picked up Ella and put her on my lap as I sat in a chair on the deck. She was nervous, at first, but as I pet her (held her solidly), she relaxed a bit. I released my hold a bit to see if she’d stay on her own. When she made as if to get up, I “pet” her again 😉  (Pet= “Niiiiiiice kitty”, with solid pets equal to the length of “nice”). She stayed for a minute, then tried to get up again, so I let her go back to her tree.

Later, I put the other kittens back in the house and left the deck door open. With the weather being decent, I left the deck door open and she walked up to the doorway, looked around, then stepped out!

All by herself!

I followed her out and sat in a deck chair. She walked all around with stops every little while for reassuring pets, to nose my hand and to sit in my lap for a minute before wandering some more 🙂

Then, she had a seat in her own chair! That’s my girl!

About catfest

I adore cats. I like most animals, really, but I've always had cats in my life. They've been my friends, my brothers and sisters and now, my kids. Other than squealing about the adorability of my sweet, sweet children, I like to write (type), edit, paint and watch tv and movies with my awesome husband. I hope you like my 'blog! Smileys!
