Maple is doing well. She started letting me pet her just a bit last night and now she is head butting me, arching her back for me to scratch her body length, and even rolling over for belly rubs, purring the whole time. She just started walking around the room in my presence a few minutes ago and is spending time near the door, curious about the rest of the house.
She has made very significant progress in just a couple of days. I think soon enough she will be ruling the roost.
