We love our kittehs and, shockingly to some, our love for them has not diminished with the arrival of Baby J. They're being very helpful, however, by adjusting seamlessly to her presence. The night we arrived home with her Andrew put down the carseat, with her in it, and they both rushed up to see what was inside. Once they'd had a carefully supervised sniff Sam sauntered off for food and Penelope waited patiently for us to get the little person out of the seat so she could sit in it. They are also big fans of J's little floor-mat-gym-thingy, which Penelope is convinced we actually got for her.
We do need to watch Penelope closely, because she is pretty sure that it would feel good to sit on the new portable heater we've acquired:
I also had a great picture of Sam that I can't seem to find at the moment, where he's doing what is his new favorite thing: sitting on the baby's stuff. In this photo he's sitting on top of Green Eggs and Ham, with one paw on a little washcloth toy thing, another paw on Eyes Nose Finger and Toes, and his head resting on a (used) burp rag. So, I figure he's accepted her.
We've made an effort to give concentrated attention to both Sam and Penelope, which has also helped I think. Also helpful: my 11 days with Baby J merging scents with her, the extra treats Andrew has been showering the kitties with and the fact that we're both home a lot more now then we were before the baby, which the animals clearly like.
I'm excited to see when she begins to notice them!
