Take a chance and do something different

When I opened the door and invited her in she was unsure. You see the door has been open before but she has never been invited. Occasionally she has strayed toward the open door, with all its new and unfamiliar things inside, and once or twice when she has felt brave or didn’t even realise she has crossed the threshold and she has dipped her toe in. The difference this time was that we were not holding her back, she was not constrained behind the fence or chased away for not being allowed.

But, since the moment we decided to expand our family of two humans (one cat and some chickens) into three humans (one cat and currently one chicken), since that moment, i’m not sure where the beginning began.
