Ok... So, this weekend we were moving a lot of stuff and moved one of Kitters boxes and she wasn't able to get into her window where she normally does... so at 2am we packed up a bunch more things we were leaving to keep her happy, grabbed her food and potty and loaded her in her carrier. She started BAWLING!!!
She cried the WHOLE way there. She hates the car so much. We had her in her crate with her little box she sleeps in on a towel and with a couple toys. Daddy covered her crate so the lights wouldn't bother her as much and we kept talking to her the whole time. She was very mad at us. When we got there, we brought her in, and let her peak around from inside the carrier and then I was talking to her more and petting her and I opened the door and let her come out on her own. Daddy sat in front of her on the floor by the TV and she eventually came out, wandered a bit right by daddy and then climbed in his lap and made him pet her. So, daddy carried her through the house and showed her all the rooms, showed her where her potty and food and water was. She was very scared and kept hiding... so after her hiding under the flap on the side of the couch for a couple hours, when we went to bed, we carried her in with us, and I put her in a clothes basket with her fuzzy blankee and made her a little tent like she went to sleep and so did we. SHE NEVER LEFT THE THING ALL NIGHT. So, this morning we kept talking to her and she finally crawled out and went under the bed. So we kept taking turns laying on the floor talking to her and one of us was in the hall and one in the room, so kinda block "the bad things" that she thought might get her and she started checking the place out. She wandereding into the tiny room, wandered into the bathroom, then I had to go to work. After about an hour or two at work. DH gets me on video chat, and he shows me my little girl standing by the hallway, and he calls her and she walks through the living room and jumps on the couch! She wasn't scared at all. She has already claimed her spot on the edge of the couch and daddy said she was checking everything out and already chased an ant!
I had the BIGGEST grin on my face ever. I was so happy!
I'm so glad she isn't completely traumatized with the move. I think she's going to be very happy now!
Now, to see if she will go to her potty by herself.. (it's in the bacement!)
