As you may know BeAnne is very lonely on her own. This is the first time in her life that she has been an “only child”. In her head she has been planning this day, but the reality is not what she thought it would be. She hates it.
I wrote a message to a friend who I know sometimes has or knows of kittens. Up here, it is mostly word of mouth that gets things done. She incredibly generously offered us one of her young cats. A four year old calico cat who “who is a little timid but adores dogs ….. I would part with her if it would cheer up Beanne.”
Well it has and I can’t thank my friend enough for her incredible generosity.
Yes, the cat is a little timid and shouts all night but she simply adores Her Maj.
BeAnne is not sure about this new hero worship but the cat food treats/cat food that she can secretly steal has seriously cheered her up!
I have made a “safe room” for our new cat – that would be the bathroom – so at night she can have a peaceful quiet place. I was concerned that she was not eating and who knows where she was peeing/poohing but last night, in the bathroom, she used her litter tray and ate two bowls of food. Little cattie might not be as food-orientated as some we have known.
There is hiding but she comes out the minute she sees BeAnne and then spends lots of time wrapping herself around her new friend.
I regularly sit on the floor and they are both learning to be peaceful together around me. The mewing has stopped today so there is hope tonight will be quieter.
We are not sure about names yet.
I am favouring either Daphne (as in Daphne du Maurier and not Scooby-Do as both my daughters thought) or Nusse (pronounced Nuss-a).
Flossie likes Nooka (Queen of the Nogs from Noggin the Nog).
A name will happen. They always do.
Now to stop little cattie leaving the house for the next two weeks. That will be fun!
