To be honest, I knew Eddy would be the most difficult furbaby in the home to help acclimate to the newest additions. She is not a fan of strange people, strange cats, change, anything unfamiliar, and, well, you get the idea. So, Eddy was and still is taking the longest to come to terms with Tonks and Winky's entrance into our home.
Don't count Eddy out yet, though. Though it's slow, she is making progress. Eddy went from hiding under my bed for a couple of days, to finally now at least being willing to stare at the kittens from a very, very safe distance. Unlike the other cats and pup Astrid, though, she still will not even remotely approach the kittens. But, she is making progress, slowly but surely, and I'll take it.
We're doing this in a step-wise fashion, and we'll do that as long as it takes. I don't mind if Eddy does not want to be best friends with the kittens, but I'd like her to at least accept their existence. I have hope that we'll get there.
Wishing you all a beautiful day!
Our Tip of the Day:
What's more, it is very important that the a child understands how to be gentle with and kind to an animal. Teach a child to give a cat or dog space as needed. In addition, of course also show a child how to nicely pet a cat or dog, and thoroughly teach them how it is never okay to pull on tails or anything of the sort. Such lessons go for all children, no matter their age, and both those that reside in the home with the new furbaby and those who are visiting your home
Cute doodle! Someday maybe you'll grow to like those new kids, Eddy :)
Lovely doodle! I hope Eddy soon decides they are not so bad after all.
We have a cat that never accepts new foster kittens, either. It’s a good thing those don’t stay for very long.
My rule of thumb for pets and animals is, the younger the child, the closer to fully grown the pet needs to be. Tiny children are just too rough, unintentionally, with kittens and puppies.
Lovely doodle ! We hope Eddy finally accepts the new kittens. Purrs
That is a cute doodle. I am glad Eddy is getting used to the newbies. Excellent tips too, kids do need to learn to respect animals.
Awww, they'll all be the best of friends in no time!!!
We hope Eddy makes friends with the kittens soon.
What a cute doodle. We bet Eddy will figure it all out with the new babies in due time. Hugs!
Amazing art as always. We hope Eddy gets used to the new babies soon.

Seriously, this is one of the very CUTEST doodles! The happy kittens, and a wary Eddy in the door.
