It is with a happy heart that I can now say this: Vi CONSISTENTLY steps up! I waited two weeks to make sure, but it’s official: she is cage-bound no more! We made our goal of July! A little late, but better than never!
When she’s in her cage, it’s her terms; she’s made it clear that her cage is her safe zone, and I need to respect that until she’s more comfortable.
But. She scampers out almost the moment I visit her. Once she climbs out, be it on top of her cage or the floor, she is more than happy to join me. 🙂
Bonus: She STILL hasn’t bitten me.
Extra bonus: she did EXCELLENT at the vet (Dr. LB complimented her gentle temperament)
AND we ventured outside for a few moments today.
The two of us are SO lucky we found each other!
