Thank you for all your words of support for Tosca. Well she had just about torn me to shreds when I put her in her cage for another car trip to yet another home this morning. She is really p'eed off. I was like "please behave, please behave" as I dont want her new owners to think she is a nutcase. She really was very sweet before all this started. Anyway, we got there and put her in a room with a tray and some food and all of us and she was scratching at the door and the windows trying to get out and growling in between. Their other cat was standing behind the door and sticking her paws under and Tosca went nuts. The stress!! But the other cat is also a torti so either they will hate eachother or hopefully come to a mutual understanding as I think Tosca would definitely like to see herself as top cat.
I was like "oh god, they are never going to want you" and then her new "mum" came in and started talking to her and Tosca really started talking back and then started rubbing on her and even did happy feet!! This woman is amazing, she was so good with her and when Tosca was growling and hissing she handled her so well and was so undersanding, I really think this might just work out. Tosca is not a cat for the faint hearted - she definitely has the torti temperament down pat though it is totally understandable at the moment with her lack of security. Poor baby, she is probably wondering when she is leaving again. I hope to god this is her last home, I dont think she can take another move.
So thats the latest update on Tosca, I will give them a call tomorrow to see how she is settling in but I think she is going to need at least a few weeks in ONE place before she will be back to lovely self again. i'll keep you posted and thanks again for the well wishes, muchly appreciated.
