Two weeks is up, and the kittens have just been granted limited access to the rest of the main floor of our house. They're still a little bit little to be running around all over the place, but they can have supervised visits to the living room and dining room. As they get bigger, they'll be granted more freedom.
Below is a short video of their first outing and their meeting with Bean.
You'll hear them peeping and squeaking as they make their way from the bedroom to the living room. They got lost along the way, so they cried for each other.
Bean was waiting for them when they were released. She's always very calm and non-threating when she's introduced to the new kittens and she always lets them come to her first.
Six kittens is a lot, and almost overwhelming for Bean. You'll see uses her paw to establish her boundaries. She's always good about letting the kittens know when they're getting to be a little too much for her.
At the end of the clip, Bean makes a dash out of the living room. Any guess where she's heading? Yep. Straight for the kitten food. She's so predictable.
I thought you all might like seeing how introductions usually work.
