After dinner Holly was determined to get some kitten time in, however Mara was having none of that and went into hiding behind the bookshelf. An attempt to extract her from her hiding place didn’t last long, and Holly got the cartoon look of horror from Mara before she bolted.
Riker also took refuge behind the bookshelf at another height level, but we were able to lead him around the shelves with a stick toy. He eventually made his way to other, more open shelves, and then back down to the ground. I was able to get him to play for a good 30-40 minutes, and slowly got him closer and closer during play.
I went to bed, but Holly kept an eye on them for a couple more hours. Both cats came out to eat, use the facilities, and play with each other several times overnight. When I got up at 6am, I found the remnants of a party: water empty/splashed out, food decimated, and the litter box destroyed.
They’re just starting to get comfortable.
