Thank you so much for the update on Deena! She looks so comfortable and at home. Thank you so much for adopting!
After a few days of exploring and getting more familiar with the new environment (via Naomi's bedroom), they were a little more confident. They would jump up on the bed, play, and meow when we left them for too long. When they finally ate, Naomi was very relieved and she was also relieved when they went in the litter box. Toothless had a little trouble the first few times, she went outside the box, but she eventually did go in the litter box. To which Naomi cheered a lot.
They had a good first week in the bedroom and then Naomi couldn't get enough sleep with 2 little kittens running around and causing trouble. So they were moved to the family room, where they had plenty of toys and room to run around and not disturb anyone. We've slowly been introducing them to different rooms of the house, all the while keeping a close eye on them. So far they have access to the family room and and the sun room. We hope that soon, they will have free range of the house!
They got all their vaccinations and shots and are going to be spayed and neutered next week (7/20). Both are strictly indoor cats, the only time they are ever outside is when they are taken to the vet in their pet carriers. You may also notice that their claws are colored, no it's not nail polish (everyone thinks that, haha!), they are softpaws, little non-toxic vinyl caps with a smooth end that simply glue onto the cat's claws. The caps and dry glue are non-toxic, so if the cat swallows them, the cap will just pass harmlessly through their digestive system. They are a great alternative to declawing and the cats look fashionable and adorable.
In the last month or so, we've seen the biggest change in Pip, who would always run away when someone approached him or tried to pet him. Now he is the biggest snuggle bug. He loves to be picked up and will sit in your lap while you watch TV. Toothless is snuggly too, but it's only with her mama (Naomi). Both cats love to give kitty hugs (rub all over our legs) and they both chirp and meow when they want attention. We can hardly believe it's already been 3 months since we adopted them. Pip and Toothless have grown so much and we can't believe that they were ever so tiny! We are so happy that we found them and we're so happy they're a part of our family now! Both seem very happy with us, but we wish they would stop growing up so fast!
Thank you so much! We'll try to keep you updated better, with more pictures!

Thank you so much for such a lovely update on our shy babies! They were so timid here, with all the changes in their lives before arriving at the RHSPCA. Your patience and compassion have clearly paid off! Thank you for giving these kitties such a loving home and giving them the time to blossom!
