On Becoming Fostering Parents
I left work and headed over to ARL to pick up Champ today! She's still pretty "feraly", as Melissa from the shelter calls her. Lots of hissing, hiding, and running away when we move towards her. We've got her blocked in the bathroom for now, as suggested by Melissa so that she can't just find a place to hide from us and never come out. This way we can always get her out of wherever she's hiding (her current fave spot shown here - the nook above the toilet bowl plumbing and below the toilet tank!). We have about two weeks to make the biggest impact on her with regards to socializing her.
