If at first you don't succeed...
You gotta admire persistence.
Two days ago I started letting the Vanalikalikes out of the tub in the Nursery and into the Playground for a couple of hours after meals. They absolutely love the new (washable) cotton rug that they can run on without their little frog legs splaying out from under them, and the wedge scratching box with the hidey hole underneath was an instant hit. Good thing they're small, because they insist upon cramming all five little bodies under the step when they are ready for a snooze.
The entry to the Playground is closed by my big wire mesh cubes, with a trash can wedged in the last open bit so that I can step in and out without the hazard of moving the wall.
Two days. They grow so fast at this age (4 weeks +). Here's Puddin (the littlest kitten and only girl) demonstrating that, when you're hungry and you hear "Mom" at the computer, a little trash can is hardly sufficient to keep you away. Even if you fall in the middle.
