Here She Is
She seems to be doing alright for now. She is scared, but quiet and calm. It appears she has jumped to the bottom of the cage to investigate. I noticed paw prints in the litter box, and it appears she has been eating some of her kibble. All good signs.
When I opened the cage to take these pictures, she didn't put her ears back, she just tried to tuck in as low as possible to hide. no hissing or growling, just watching me very carefully. She is fine with me as long as I don't make any moves toward her.
I won't make any moves toward her for awhile. For the next few days, the only interaction I will have with her will be talking to her while changing her food and water, and cleaning her litter box. Then I will start sitting with her for about an hour every evening. I will use that hour to read out loud, or I can use that time to make some phone calls, so she can get familiar with my voice.
She has some scratches on her nose, but other then that, she looks fine. I am still estimating her to be about five months old. Once she gets a little more comfortable, I will post more pictures, and hopefully get some full body shots. These pictures don't show it, but her body has alot of orange underneath and blended in with the grey.
Now I need to come up with a name so I can start using it as I am talking to her. I will have to think on that one. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to let me know.
