So I moved Aida and the kittens to the kitchen on Saturday morning. I wanted to clean the bathroom and give the kittens a little more room to run around. Though I don't know why I bothered since they spent most of the day asleep in their bed.
However, Aida watched the crew check her out through the kitchen pass through and she figured it out. A couple of hours after moving everyone, I heard Spud hiss and looked down. Yep - Aida went sauntering by my chair...outside the kitchen. This wasn't really a trick I wanted her to learn. She spent most of the afternoon laying outside the gate - which of course drove the kittens nuts. They could see her, but couldn't get to her. A little hissing between her and Tommy & Spud, but nothing serious. Tim followed her down the hall and she must have felt cornered as she chased him back out, but other than that, nothing too bad.
Then there was this morning. I set up the gate like I have been doing for the past couple of weeks. I can leave the bathroom door open for them to have a little more space and some air. I turned around as I was getting ready to leave, and here she comes down the hall. Great - now she knows how to get OVER the gate too. I didn't want to lock her in the bathroom all day, so I can only hope things are OK when I get home.
