We’re moving Monday? Can we do that? I’ve never been a big fan of Mondays so, yeah, if we could move them elsewhere, I’m all for it!
No, sweet Ruby, we’re not moving Monday. Today is moving day for Sunny. She’s moving in with you!
Sunny’s going to be my roommate? I like Sunny! She’s quiet and shares Dad… She’s not going to steal my tower, is she?
No, sweetie. Sunny has her own tower and her own toys and we bet she’ll keep sharing Dad with you.
Don’t forget me! I stay in here, too!
Nope, not forgetting you either, Zuzu. We know you and Sunny get along great together.
We moved Sunny into the big master bedroom today where Ruby spends her days and nights, and Zuzu spends her nights, living in luxury with skylights and windows overlooking the backyard, with boxes of toys, heated cat towers, and a huge bed to nap on without worry of more outgoing, rambunctious kitties sticking their noses you know where and racing about trying to instigate chases. Not that any other cats here would do such a thing. Not pointing fingers and certainly not at love panther Olivia or jumping bean Viola!
All of Sunny’s things have been moved in; her tower, box of toys, favorite blankets, her Sureflap feeder and her personal water fountain, (Note to Mom: Purchase ear plugs soon!) and she’s already staked her claim under the fleece blanket.
And taken over supervising Dad when he works at home and during his work conference calls.
Sunny’s feeling better than she probably has in years. Her stitches were removed last week and already, her fur is growing back where the vet shaved it before removing the cyst along her spine. She’s eating well, is completely switched over from kibble to wet food, and is at a very good weight for her. Her personality has brightened a bit and she seems happier.
For her next step, we hope more of her personality comes out, now that all her urgent vet procedures have been addressed, so we can get a bead on her own voice, something that to date, and righteously so, has been grumpy, grumpier, and grumpiest.
C’mon, pretty girl, just a little smile?
