The Trimble Tabbies are a little bit on the shy side. Shy kittens like to hide, and we don't want them retreating to the nooks and crannies of the guest bedroom, so I've set up a wire kennel to house them in until they're feeling a little more confident. It works well. They feel safe and I don't have to fish them out from under the furniture.
Several times a day, I put them in the bathroom (aka the exercise yard) so they can run and romp. We join them for playtime and work on building their trust.
They're improving daily - everyone is purring, and they're getting more comfortable with us. They still have their scaredy-cat moments, but they're getting there.
One of the greatest things about fostering kittens is witnessing this transformation.
