The overwhelming majority of you either thought there were no problems (19%) or it was a complete failure and she slept on the floor the whole night (50%). The correct answer lies somewhere in between. Jenn had to go help Trixie two times last night. The first time, around 1am, Trixie was lying on the floor (right next to the bed — presumably where she fell) pitifully crying and whimpering. She went back to sleep the second Jenn put her in bed. The second time, around 3am, Trixie was bawling at the gate. It took a little more work to get her down (so I am told) but Jenn succeeded.
Earlier today Trixie took her nap without falling off the bed, but it took me 90 minutes to get her to go to sleep. It was a nightmare, and makes me want to take up cat herding.
Now we’re getting ready to see if Trixie has learned anything since last night. Anyone want to take a guess? We’re resetting the poll. Place your bets for tonight’s [Monday night] record. I’ll post the answer first thing Tuesday morning. Well… maybe after coffee.
