Today, Luna makes her return to the blog with some great news. She has found her Forever Family! After lots of eye ointment, the expulsion of more worms than should be physically possible (of two kinds! You should have heard the shrieks coming from our house that night!) and many many hours of socialisation work, Luna was ready to meet a lovely couple who expressed interest in her. You can see in the photo below that her left eye is smaller than her right eye. That was the eye she had problems with, and we aren't sure if they will even up again.
Regardless, she is outrageously cute, and we are very proud of the progress she has made, over the last fortnight especially. She has gone from a kitten who would hide from mum to one who will give the occassional nose kiss and enjoys short patting sessions. The first time she purred was prettier than the prettiest music, ever.She is also happy to play out in the open while people are in the room. We've been using toys to help bring her out of her shell, and her new parents have committed to working with her in becoming more confident at her own pace.
This week, Luna will have her ladygardenectomy and microchip implanted. When she is healed up, she will move in with her new parents. We are very excited for her :)
One of the struggles we had with the kittens being sick is that there was a strict quarantine in our house to keep the resident cats safe. This drove Lishy bananas, and gave mum a lovely skin reaction from the constant spraying of F10 disinfectant. Now that everyone is healthy, the foster family is allowed out of their room for supervised play with the resident cats. They are getting along famously, and it will be so good for the continued socialisation of the little ones. We are already seeing more confidence. It's an exciting time here for us :)
