Um, I'm not at all coherent. Pengy could be sleeping on the end of the bed right now for all I know when I wake up.
Colleen, I'm not sure she finds me reassuring, you know? I still think she sees me as the boogy-man, but maybe you're right. Could it be that she finds me reassuring without being friendly? I wonder.
Simon was having nothing to do with the bookshelf. He kept leaping up onto the bed like "hey, I'm already here...why dya want me to walk on that? I can jump!!!" But Esse decided she was going to walk on the bookshelf from the bed to the trunk...and Pengy was watching. Maybe Pengy will understand it backwards, and from Esse...we'll see.
And the other thing just happened...and it was so cute.
You know those plastic bottle rings (like from mkilk bottles?)? Well, Simon loves to play. I took one of a jar of peanuts for him, and we were playing around. I was in the rocker, Pengy on the back floor of the first level in the condo, and Simon was chasing the ring being moved around with my fingers. I laid it down on the first floor front, and Simon came up and pounced...we played for a bit, inches away from Pengy, with her watching intently.
I got the ring away from Simon (I gave him another toy), and offered the ring to Pengy. She recoiled and thumped my hand - no claws, just a solid thwap. I kept my hand there, with the ring, and wiggled the ring around. Lo and behold, Pengy reached down and tried to take it in her mouth. She pulled, I pulled, and then she pulled again. My fingers are literally 1/2 an inch away from her mouth - no way she could not have realized I was there - and she was playing. She backed off, and I wiggled the ring a bit again...and this time she laid one paw on the ring, and used her mouth. Repeat of above. And then...then!!! She got wise, and laid her paw on my fingers - no claws, just firm pressure - and grabbed at the ring with her mouth. I let her have it then.
OH MY WORD!!!
She really is being adventuresome and courageous. Imagine...she touched me voluntarily - and with no claws - and took the offering I was making with the ring.
This is soooooooooo interesting. I wonder what will happen next....
