I just knew she was safe and sound! So glad to know it for sure.
She sounds like the sweetest thing - it's just heart melting! It's a little to early to tell - but Ophelia seems to be accepting this new situation better than I would have expected. (And I know it seems wrong, because they puff their tales to look tough - but isn't it the cutest thing? I also find it so AMAZING how large they can make them!)
The screen door is a great thing, isn't it? I think it'll really help the intro process. I'm so excited for you and the gang!
Well, that was one long night! Ginger seems to have abandonment issues, or that's what I would call it anyway. She can't stand to be alone. She hollered and yelled wanting someone - anyone - to come to her. We (I) waited until she was quiet for a few minutes before coming to see her (Earl went the first time, and calmed her for about an hour. When I went and talked to her for a while, she calmed down for 3-4 hours.) She seems to feel more comfortable eating when I'm in the room or at least within sight, but she does prefer privacy to use the litterbox.
Ginger is dying for feline companionship, though. Trent and Ophelia just aren't ready yet. They seem to be doing better, but they needed a lot of reassurance last night. Ophelia snuggled with me all night, which is quite unusual for her. Trent will still stand a ways from the door and hiss at Ginger (which is funny in its own right, because for a big kitty he has this teeny tiny little hiss that wouldn't scare anything!), but when she walks away from the door he comes up to it looking for her. Ophelia seems to have decided that avoidance is the best way to deal with Ginger. She doesn't seem to acknowledge that there is a door with a Ginger behind it.
Hi Heidi and Ginger! Just got back from Arizona one of the first things I had to do was check on little Ginger!! I'm so glad she made it there and everything is going along as to be expected...............please give all the kitties a hug from me and before you know it, they will be the best of friends..........!
