No luck with trapping Momma yet. She keeps a well away from Rick now
but she will come within a few feet of me. My work schedule does not allow me to take time to get her in the carrier but hopefully on Friday I will have some success.
Mean time Baby is still in the basement hiding herself. I did get a glimpse of her yesterday, but not since. I am pretty sure I know where she is hiding, but I don't want to go poking around and scare her more.
I stopped on my way home from work yesterday and got a toy for her. it is a wheel with a ball in with some carpeting on top under a spring with a big red pom pom. (Not a good description) but it was about 10 inches accross and maybe 10 inches tall. I noticed baby would chase leaves and other things outside so I thought this would be good. Also, it did not have any string or little parts that could fall off and harm her. Anyhow, I left it in the middle of the room, thinking she would be able to stalk it and pounch on it. Well, when I went downstairs to feed her this morning and talk to her the toy was gone! It was nowhere in sight. I *think* she must have liked it enough to drag it under the steps where I think she is hiding out.
Tonight when we fed her we put the food on an old shirt of Ricks that is loaded with his scent. I will be putting something of mine down there tomorrow.
This weekend I have to scan alot of family pictures so I will be downstairs sharing her space. Hopefully she will show herself to me.
