JJ finally settled down this morning at about 5:30am. So I got to sleep by about 6am and got a couple of hours sleep.

When we all got up at 8am JJ seemed grumpy but ok. He was growling in his cage every now and again. I had to take my daughter over to my parents as she’s gone away for a weeks holidays so JJ was left with Dan my other half for a few hours. Whilst I was gone JJ was well behaved and did some sunbathing. I have photos but they are too large to upload 🙁 …. I might have solved it…

He has been out of his cage most of the day lounging in the sun until he retreated to use his litter. We settled down to watch some tv with the crate open and the Pixel started crying at the door. I opened it and let him in and sat back down. I then realised… the door was open about an inch. Before I could get up and around to the door, JJ was out of his crate, through the door and across the landing heading for the stairs. I panicked as the stairs were not blocked off. I knew chasing after him would result in him panicking and shooting/falling/rolling down the stairs. So I stopped and talked to him. He headed down 3 steps. Thankfully he stopped there. I think he realised he was attempting a bit too much! He then came back up, straight past me, into the bathroom and up the step and into his high sided litter tray! So part of me was in panicking mode thinking I need to get him back where he is safe and the other part of me was jumping up and down inside thinking WAY TO GO JJ! He was just as fast as he was before, he did steps too. So amazed!

He lay down in this litter box too, after using it and refused to look at me, hiding his head below the edge of it. He knew he was in trouble! 🙂 I didn’t want to scare him so we ended up having to pick up the massive litter tray with JJ inside and carry it back to our room! It was funny.

After all the adventure JJ went back to bed, after some dinner and pain killers. Oh yeah he did all of this running without a single episode, growl or anything and he was almost due pain meds! It was just like 4 legged JJ in the most part! I’m so excited and pleased.

I know he has a long way to go but this was a glimpse of my JJ on his way back! So pleased I can claim today as a high. There’s still all night to go but I refuse to let anything spoilt this moment!

So today so far ZERO episodes of crazy jumping and screeching and just a lot of grumpy growling this morning. Maybe the heat of the sun helped, I don’t know, but wow, whatever it was I hope it continues. Maybe less escaping as I don’t think my nerves can take it just yet!
