|po stalking tom|
the cats love the new house
there is under the house to hide
there is still a train track behind the house to get filthy from - Po comes in mainly black not white
and generally there are less other cats around so they are more chilled, although we did have a visit from George the cat up the road and his owner last night - and she has 10 cats apparently, he chased Po under the house and disappeared
We(well I) fretted and discussed the best way to go about the move for the furry beasts. At first I was going to drop the cats off at my sisters, but I had dreaded thoughts of them getting out and having another thing to worry about on move day. So sensibly I booked them into the vet for 3 nights. As we had already had a false start to the box city they were not so freaked by the piles of boxes in the house. But by the Friday I think I needed a break from them to really concentrate on the packing, yes they want cuddles and pats and I have no resolve whatsoever.
We moved they rested, and had to socialise with other cats. I am not sure how they really felt (as they cannot talk) but my niece and nephew were really keen to help collect them on the Sunday. I wasn't really ready but we collected them and cat proofed the escape routes.
After 2 weeks inside - well it was the second weekend - with a few 10 minute outings, some by stealth some by design. The beasts were released on the Saturday when I was at Tafe and we have not looked back.
They then had a few days in when the termite treatment was done and after one day of climbing the walls they settled down again.
Tom is more chilled. Po is really happy - but to tell the truth I will never really know as they can't talk!!!!
I will also add that the front door issue has been solved - as in this my resolve is firm and I will not open it on a mew, however persistent it is, request. Tom tried very very hard yesterday to get me to open the door but it did not work.
Now you can really laugh as we are getting a painting done of them by an artist friend of ours. We are truly cat tragics!!!!
