My son, my husband, and I withdrew as far as the hallway. We wanted Freckles to have the opportunity to explore her new space without the fear that we would swoop down and harm her. However, we also were curious about her reactions to the new wonders that awaited her.
She cautiously hopped around the room, sniffing the furniture, giving each piece a little exploration nibble and poke. Finally, she scampered under the bed and remained there for the rest of the evening, only coming out a couple of times to use her cage as a litter box and drink some water from her water bottle.
