Cat Moving Day
Well, we did it. I did it. I moved the cats from my in-laws house to our house and they are currently running around and crying because they keep losing each other and it’s a little distressing. I keep getting up to see where they are. Calamity wants to be with me, it seems. She follows me around in her own cat way, as if she wanted to be in that room regardless of my presence, but it just so happens that’s the room I went into. And Pearl doesn’t want to be with me, but she wants to be with Calamity and it’s very conflicting for her.
I’ve already gotten up at least three times to check on them. I’ve been following them around for half an hour and have decided I just need to go ahead and trust them to not destroy anything or pee where they’re not supposed to or something. Calamity has successfully used the litter box, so I know she’s good, at least. She probably won’t go where she’s not supposed to. They haven’t jumped into any boxes yet, so there’s that too.
Calamity has ventured onto the bed a few times now and looked out one window. Pearl tends to want to go under as many things as she can: the bed, the dressers, etc. They’re looking at the fireplace now and around the small tables and I’m typing sideways to keep an eye on them. They probably can’t get into the fire place, but you never know with cats. Pearl is currently very interested in the legs of the coffee table. They have yet to get onto any other furniture. Though it’s only a matter of time.
My mom is coming down around noon with my sister to hang out and see the house. Erin hasn’t seen it yet. I’m really looking forward to having someone here with me and the cats. I’m not entirely sure what to do with myself. I want to keep an eye on them, but I want them to feel comfortable exploring and I know right now Pearl at least is afraid of going back in the carrier when I follow her around. Calamity keeps disappearing and reappearing in different places. I don’t know how she does it.
So hopefully I’ll do a little bit of breathing today. I think it’ll be better once Logan gets home and we’re here with them together as a family. I also have to keep an eye on my aloe plant now. I’ve moved him to the living room where I can keep an eye on him. I knew having the cats here would be a little stressful at first. I hope it gets better as they get used to the new place and being here with us by themselves. Pearl has got up the courage to be close enough to me to play with the new scratching post, which makes me happy. I really hope they like it here. I really hope they like us and aren’t too mad that we took them away from Molly and Joyce and my in-laws. I hope they don’t try to bolt for the door when I open it. New cats are stressful, man. We’ll see how this goes. I hope that your day is much less stressful, my friends.
