Mom is slowing learning a few things about Bissell. She is still weird about hands and those cats outside the kitten doors. However, she must have lived in a house before since she KNOWS what a bag of treats means. And...she is very food motivated. Chanel was standing outside the foster doors and Bissell got "the look". But mom shook the treat bag and Bissell was all "oooo....cookies". Mom did get Bissell's nails trimmed. YAY!!! For a momma cat, she is a little weird. The kittens can scream about being lonely or held or whatever and she doesn't seem to get wound up. One sign of a cat on the other sign of those doors though and it is game on.
We have teeth coming in, so mom is going to make sure there are baby litter boxes and plenty of food available. Kittens that are nursing seem to take longer to decide they want to eat on their own so they will start when they get motivated. Bissell is spending more and more time outside of the box and away from the kittens, so it is definitely time for them to start learning.
