Pussycat

I've brought Leila home today. Early indications are not good. She refuses to come out of her travelling basket. What am I going to do with this silly cat of mine?

That's what I've been telling her as well. She's not listening to either of us, though.

Aww. Give her time. She'll make your space her own.

After 4 years, Leila's suddenly developed a fear of my space and my other two cats that she grew up with. The vet recommended a holiday, away from home in a new environment, and to reintroduce her after a week or two.

She was fine at her holiday address. The minute she came home, though, she reverted back to her fearful behaviour.

The vet warned me the next step would be to choose between her and the others. Now I'm scared of really having to make that choice. :(

Oh, how sad. I hope she recovers.

Me, too. I've locked her in the bathroom so that she can rest up a bit and get her bearings. We'll see if she wants to come out in a day or two. Fingers crossed!

Hedwig, it's me, Paula

Can you keep Leila in a separate room from the other cats for the time being? Give her time to get readjusted?

I am still mourning my beloved Darryl, when I think of him it's like a stabbing in my heart

My flat is open plan, so keeping her away from the other two is a bit of a problem...though I suppose I could put her in the bathroom for a day or two...Worth a try, I suppose.

And of course you're still missing and mourning Darryl. It hasn't been that long, after all. When I lost my Aloysius, a whole year later I couldn't think of him without bursting into tears -- and I had Leila by then.
And I still miss him. He was my baby.

I hate it when pets aren't quite themselves...it's so sad. Poor Leila :o( My old doggie hasn't been well either and it's such a worry.

Oh, I'm sorry -- what's wrong with him/her?

He's kind of slowing down...he's 12 now, and has kidney problems etc, and needs a special diet. It's scary isn't it, the thought that they won't be around forever?

Yes. You close your eyes to the fact that they won't though, and every time they go, you rage at the fates saying 'no fair!'

Poor, silly kitty. *hugs*

Thanks. Kitty's been locked in the bathroom all day, and hasn't yet plucked up the courage to demand to be let out. If she doesn't snap out of this soon, I'm takingher to the vet's for a course of anti-depressants, as a final resort.
