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

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...

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°...
Gini has found the spot where the alpaca's used to hang out (they belong to our neighbours - they will not come here anymore now that we have a cat again :)) - and she liked the scent so much she kept rolling around... smells like a little lama!!
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!
