Yesterday, Jaye asked about how all the other cats were doing and I realized I’d only talked about Dexter (he is my favorite after all *ssshhh* don’t tell the others). Samson & Soafie, our two indoor cats have adjusted well. They did their share of exploring in when we first arrived, now that it’s home, they’re back to sleeping all the time.
The Sweets, our little feral cat, is also adjusting well. We kept her in the house for a week with us, though she is not an indoor cat and does not have indoor cat manners. She’s very sweet, but she’s still feral and prefers being outside. We moved her up into the garage and kept it closed for a few days and even left Dexter up there with her.
She now seems to be fully acclimated to hew new larger digs. At first she was leery of coming outside, but she’d follow Dexter on occasion. She’s obviosly back to her feral self as she’s got her little stash of various trophies in a corner of the garage. Looks like no mouse will survive if they enter into the garage or the area around it. No doubt she’ll do just fine.
She’s a very smart little cat and seems to have a good grasp of how to survive in the wild. If you’ve never heard her story, read “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, it’s quite amazing. We’re thankful everyone adjusted nicely without too much trouble. All the cats seem back to their normal selves, I guess the same could likely be said for Mr & Mrs Chiots too. After a month, we feel like we’re finally settling into a routine.
How long does it usually take you to adjust to new situations?Filed under Around the Garden | Comments (13)
