I bet you haven't. I'll spoil the surprise and just show you her before I blather on explaining why this new addition.
So last weekend my family was up in Connecticut for our fake Christmas. I was originally planned to go, but had to stay home at the last minute when the vet surprised us with an extra hundred dollar fee in order to let Pach stay with them which we couldn't afford. So I ended up staying home to take care of all of the animals. I was sad to miss out seeing some of my family, but it meant I was able to skip the 14+ hour car ride each way. And on that last trip they were bringing down the cat with us.
She was supposed to be living in the bathroom while she got adjusted, but that first night she kept me up half the night crying, only stopping when I let her into my room. And she's been in here ever since. I even moved her litter box, food, and water into here. She really isn't that much of an inconvenience, she spends most of her time on my bed sleeping, and generally keeps to herself, unless she wants to be petted. Poor gal didn't get much love at my Aunt's house so she's a bit attention starved. And I don't mind giving her some TLC, but my arm gets tired!
So far she hasn't had much interest in leaving my room. She's met the other cats, and is not a fan. She hisses and growls at them. So far Milky is the one that behaves around her the best, he just sits from a distance and watches her, Waffles hisses and growls back, and Mato is terrible. He gets into her face and won't leave her alone. I know he doesn't mean any harm, but he's not helping her get adjusted. The few times I've picked her up (she HATES being picked up) and brought her downstairs, she gets all shaky and runs back to my room the moment I let her go. I'm hoping that soon she'll get over that fear, but with cats it can take a while. It's just there's other people in the house who would love to dote on her, and she's seriously burning me out!
