Well, I posted my situation a while back about looking for a house with my fiance and my fiance being extremely allergic to cats. We found a house that has a big screened in porch for my cat Annabelle to live in. She has been an indoor cat her whole life. (she is 3 yrs old) While our house has been being built, I have been letting Annabelle out on our apartment screened in porch so that she will get used to it. She really seems to love it out there. So this weekend is the big move. I bought Annabelle a bunch of soft kitty "cubbyhole" looking things and a jungle gym. I also will bring some blankets from the old apartment. My roommate has a cat too. We got them at the same time. My concern is how Annabelle is going to react to a)not having the other cat there and b) new life on the screened in porch. She is a pretty independant cat but has been very needy lately. I think she knows something is going on with all of the packing going on. By the way, we do have plans to keep annabelle in a bathroom/garage on really cold nights (not many in Charleston) or really bad weather. I guess i am feeling guilty for making her move out on the screened in porch. It is however really nice with a fan and soft furniture out there, and lots of room to play and run. We are going to spend a lot of time out there with her. My poor fiance has been sick as a dog while staying with me the last few weeks. He wakes up every morning with swollen eyes and goes to sleep everynight sneezing and blowing his nose. He had a nasty reaction to his allergy shot this past weekend. Yet he still plays with Annabelle! I just hope the transition is smoother for her than I am thinking. We are planning on getting a dog in October for her to have a companion. I feel so guilty when I look at her these days!
