Today Lucy Liu reached yet another miraculous milestone in her recovery journey. I don't know quite how she manages to keep progressing as well as she does when she keeps being so reluctant to exercise and use her body. I also don't know what motivated Lucy today, jealousy perhaps since Karina, one of the newcomers, is crated in the crate below Lucy's crate. Lucy's still in the the top crate although she still stubbornly refuses to even try to climb the step stool to get in her crate and insists on curling up at my feet and refusing to move until I either run out of patience or feel sorry for her enough to pick her up and put her back into her crate.
As Farrah and Moose have said, we acquired three new family members yesterday. When we have new family members, 3 or 4 times every day Mom closes off one of the rooms where some of our litter pans, food dishes, and water dishes are (we have other rooms with food, water, and litter in them so its no problem to us) and lets each newcomer have some time alone in that room to exercise, sharpen claws, play, and check out our family members scents, etc.
About an hour ago, Mom again let each one of the three newcomers have a turn in the room. Karina, whose crate is below Lucy Liu's was the last newcomer to go. When Mom brought Karina back to her big crate, Lucy Liu meowed and suddenly stood up briefly on her hind legs and tried to reach out to get Mom to pet her. True Lucy braced herself with one forepaw against the door while using the other forepaw to try to get Mom's attention and her left rear leg was supporting most of her weight, but the fact remains...albeit briefly, Lucy was standing on her hind legs just about an hour ago!
