Welcome Home Misty

United States

Yesterday I drove to John Day to evict my tenant from my trailer and to put it up for sale. At the same time I collected most of my belongings, including our Misty kitty whom I had given to my tenant. He was home and we talked. It was all amicable and quite the relief. Misty is NOT a car kitty. I mean, we can take Chester in the car and leave him in a lap and he's quite content to ride around with us. Misty does not like to be in the car, nor does she like to be in the Kitty Carrier! So you can imagine the noise she made all 2 and a half hours it took to drive home! Once home, I let her out of the carrier and, at first, she avoided me. I picked her up after cornering her under my desk and took her to my bed where I put her under the blanket. She loves to be under the blanket and will usually not purr for us unless she is there. Once under my blanket, though, she relaxed and has been happy ever since...except for when Chester is around! Mind you, Misty has never liked Chester. He has a history of bullying her so when she was growling at him, it was just like she had never left! lol Chester, on the other hand, has stopped his caterwauling since she has been home so I am suspecting that he was lonely without her to growl at him! Go figure, eh? lol Anyway, it is good to have the family back together again. Have you ever had this happen, where a cat missed another so badly that he drove you nuts with his caterwauling?

Tee hee and you are back to a two cat household. How does Misty take it now she cant get out at least not without a collar?

LOL...Misty actually has not wanted to go outside all this time. We did get her a collar the other day so now she can go out but she's been happy being inside. It's Chester who is driving us nuts with wanting to go in and out all the time. I can't wait to get my kitty door installed here! I did grab it from the trailer in John Day, just need to put it in a window here. Trouble is that the windows here are so yucky I don't even want to deal with them. When the weather warms I'll clean them up and put the door in.

No it doesn't seem like I have ever had to deal with that sort of thing, and I have had multiple cats at one time or another, they just didn't do any of that. It doesn't mean they weren't missed though, maybe they wondered where they were, but no noises or anything like that til they got back home. That is so sweet they missed each other or at least the one cat Chester missed Misty. Maybe he likes her too and thats why he bullies her, you just never know. LOL.

Thank you. I think Misty is happy to be back with Mom, too, although she doesn't feel that way about Chester. It's so funny...he missed her but she did not miss him at all!

Awe so happy to be reading this wonderful news! I have that going on now! My one cat Jingles, has become the "daddy" to my kitten Cinder, and Cinder wails when he can't find Jingles! Once he does find him, he curls up, Jingles bathes him usually and if they haven't started play fighting, then they go to sleep.

I am not sure how my cat Stumpy would cope with moving, I have promised to stay where I am while I have her and when I no longer have her I will start looking around for another place, I hate taking a cat away from their familiar surroundings...

Well, that's all dependent on their personalities. Cats are easy to move with, really. Some you have to keep indoors when you first move with them for about a week until they decide that this is home while others can be let out even on the road. I have had both kinds of cats and they have always traveled well. Usually cats bond to their owners if they bond at all and their surroundings don't really matter to them much, they're at home no matter where you take them.

We told the vet to put Ping and Pong in the same cage when they got fixed... the tech didn't and came in telling us she should've listened to us! "That one with the collar?" "Ping," I responded. "Yeah, that one, just went nuts." Then, when we took Rygel and Sirus to the vet to get fixed, we didn't think it would be so bad, and they were fine the first day, but the next morning they were caterwauling the roof off so they put them in the same cage. They got quiet for a bit then tore the cage up!

That is too funny. Misty is growling at Chester all the time...she never liked him...even though Chester isn't really bothering her (yet). But he's happy to have her back.
