After nearly a month with us, the kittens were both getting much more adventurous. In particular, Zosia is madly obsessed with getting into the office or bedroom. Sometimes she will even sit by the bedroom this time, door, meowing when she knows perfectly well no one is there. I think she likes it due to it being a bit forbidden, but also due to the bed being fun to climb.
Kasia has learned her name. She usually looks up if you say it and sometimes even comes. We have been trying to train them to respond to their names with turkey, their only human food. The treats we got just weren’t anything like as effective as turkey and everything I have read seems to indicate that boneless turkey is fine for a cat in moderation. Cold turkey in particular is good because they can’t smell it from a distance, so you can use it in teaching by being able to get it to them more discreetly.

We happened to be driving by when they were constructing it even though we are almost never over that way:
