CLEO & IONA, Entry for February 9, 2008
Goodmorning! Well the amazing news today is that Cleo is out of the closet and socializing at last! Yea! How did I do it? Well...... when I came in, I once again found Cleo in the closet behind several boxes etc. So one by one, I started taking everything out. Cleo just sat quietly watching until finally a path was cleared. Then I sat down and let her sniff my hand and soon she rubbed her little head up against my arm and got lots and lots of praise and pets as a reward. After awhile she felt much more secure and walked right out of the closet undaunted like she didn't have a care in the world and was in fact, happy to be out. She even followed me around to do the chores!! So big strides today and all is well!!!
