A very sunny day - Gini and I went out for a good long walk. She loves that! Sometimes I take the lead, but often I stand still and wait for her to go somewhere... This was filmed close to the house, but we also go deep in the forest! Because of the bright sunshine the quality of the movie is not so good to say the least, but you can see Gini run, roll in the pebbles and if you listen carefully you may even hear her purr...
And did you notice that she speaks fluent Dutch now?
Another remarkable thing is that she is crazy about Jeroen. It is not that she doesn't like me, but, well, I'm not HIM :). A couple of days ago, J and I were coming down from the stairs of the atelier - and Gini was just coming that way, minding her own business, not really noticing. We both called her and she RAN, in a straight line, to Jeroen! Didn't even look at me... She's daddy's little girl, so much is clear... Have a great weekend!

Today Sally was here, she confirmed what I also thought: Gini seems to be growing!
Plus she still sleeps on the plastic bags, plus she eats really well, plus she is outside as much as she can, plus she is hunting bigger prey - the mice have left the building :).
Sleep well Heidi! Your cat is doing finer every day...

But there definitely have been developments. She 's become positively un-scared, and begins to get seriously interested in birds...

Back on Monday for sure!

We love here more every day! I had to teach a class this morning, and then a lunch meeting. To make my absence up to Gini we went for a walk in the afternoon. She really likes being outside and begins to get used to new things like grass, insects, loud birds, far away dogs barking.
The only thing she can't get used to - but even there we see some improvement - is the sound of plastic bags... but you don't hear that kind of noise outside...
And we also were inside, where Gini amused herself with her ball-toy. Mostly when I was NOT filming but I guess for Heidi this one's nice anyway...

Gini helps Jeroen with pulling weeds

and then moved to her now-familiar napping-spot: Jeroen's lap

She's now given up - sleeps in the chair, not between us. She's angry. What a cat!!

After her first careful steps on the terrace yesterday, Gini ventured out much further!
She went quite far, and stayed between Jeroen and me! Ran back to the house when she was afraid, lots of times in the beginning, but less and less... I took loads of pictures and made a couple of movies, if you want to see more leave a comment and I'll post them later...
The movies are not in the right angle I'm sorry to say, you'll have turn your laptop - or your head - some 90°...
It's time for a good sleep. After having been on Jeroen's lap for a while she is now on her old blanket in the chair... We LOVE her!!

She has played long (and wild) with Jeroen's old boat shoes, especially the laces, she has eaten well, we've had much fun talking to each other and she has deserved her second name: Swiffer (a dutch brand that makes dust-cloths)... Whenever she is scared, which still happens from time to time, she hides far under furniture, where vacuum cleaners don't come... and when she comes out she is covered in spiderwebs and dust - and needs a good brushing! (But the floor has never been so clean!)We love her very very much - and it looks like she is ok with us too... And I can tell you that she is very interested in "outside"... we keep her inside for the time being, but she is looking through the windows all the time, fascinated by everything that happens there, so watch this space!
