Flying progress

Atilla has been more confident with her flying lately.  The last few days she has attempted laps of the room.  She lands on the floor but has been getting further each time.  She has also flown to me when I have been standing at the window, the other side of the room.

Today, she did a bookcase run, i.e., the diagonal route to the bookcase & back to the Manor.  She managed a perfect turn at the bookcase & it was on the return leg to the Manor that she started to lose height & landed on the shelf underneath the Manor.  It was a sterling performance.

On top of that, twice, she has flown to the sisal spiral rope perch hanging from the lampshade in the middle of the room.  (I have had something hanging from that lampshade for over 2 years but no one has ever bothered to make use of it…. until now!)  Without any prompting, she landed beautifully on it.  She sat for a little while, looking at things from the new vantage point, then executed a faultless flight back to the Manor.

Well done, Atilla!

    Well done, Atilla, indeed! I’m so pleased to hear she’s flying so well again…

    This is great 🙂

    Isn’t it fun when they do new things!

      Yes, it’s fantastic! Atilla flew to the plant pot stand a few times today, in front of the window. She hasn’t been there in years. I did a double-take when I saw her there!
