The story of Alex and Kitty

This week, Alex started to pet Kitty. And I don't just mean wave her hand around and manage to hit her, I mean Alex crawled up to Kitty, and then gently started petting her! Kitty was alarmed, but appreciative! I called my mom right away, I couldn't believe what I was seeing! It seems like all those times of constant repetition, "We mustn't hit Kitty, we have to be gentle with Kitty. Nice Kitty. Gentle Kitty," it finally paid off!

Then, last night, Alex and Kitty started to play together! Kitty has this toy - it's this stuffed mouse that has a chunk of catnip sewn into it. The mouse is pretty indestructible and it's Kitty's favourite toy. We generally have been trying to keep Alex away from it because she puts it in her mouth and it's gross. She's just starting to get away from that age though - she's now more into investigating with her eyes and hands before she'll consider putting it in her mouth. Anyway, she found Kitty's mouse, and I didn't take it away from her because it didn't look like she would try to eat it.

She took the mouse and started shaking it. Kitty got all excited. Then Alex threw the mouse and Kitty pounced! Alex thought this was funny so she went to retrieve the mouse. She shook it and then gently placed it at Kitty's feet! Kitty played, then Alex took it again, shook it and gave it back to Kitty! This happened about 4 times before Alex lost interest and wandered off. It was so cute!

What I'm interested in knowing - was Alex trying to share the mouse with Kitty, or was Alex somehow aware that this was actually Kitty's toy?

No kidding!

I was hoping just to keep her away from them until she's older actually... but this has worked out quite well :)
