An interesting 24 hours, one good moment, one not so good, but made me think a lot! Last night I could hear a dog howling, so asked Coco to move off the windowsill to let me look outside, she just moved to one side, so I took the chance of touching her back! She allowed it, and then sat gazing at me in a nice, relaxed way so we had a conversation about being touched. It was their night out last night, but I had to let my neighbours decorators in, I decided to nip out without getting the girls back in their room, wont be trying that again for a while! Got back, Coco was back in their room looking decidedly uneasy, Chanel was nowhere to be seen! Now while my rational mind knew there was a 0.01% chance of her getting out of the gap I squeezed in without me feeling her, I started feeling sick with panic. Took over an hour to find her, she was that scared, she had got in a dark spot under the radiator - I used the torch on the 4th check and found her. I had been calling her, shaking Lucy's treats, I even let Lucy out of my room for a couple of minutes in the hope her hissing would encourage Chanel to go to her mum. She did eventually go back in her room, but still uneasy, until I shut the door. She was that stressed she allowed strokes, so got some treats for being good. Who would have thought that something as small as the front door opening and closing while they were downstairs would cause both of them to get stressed? It does show that they really aren't ready for that much more yet, despite it being nearly 3 years.
