I need some advice from people who are cat savvy -- the journey continues (PART TWO) [View all]

Last edited Mon Mar 18, 2013, 05:36 PM - Edit history (1)

I have received some inquiries in my DU inbox about Nikita's and my journey. If you were a participant on this thread http://www.democraticunderground.com/1018319954, this update is for you.

Someone told me once I started this journey, I had no idea what I was in for ... and at this point, I have to say they were right. But despite the challenges that have occurred since we last "talked" in the earlier thread, my love for Nikita, and I believe her love for me, has only gone stronger.

I am going to post a couple of emails in which I discuss what has happened so you will get a sense of the last few days events. I think I have struggled with some things simply because I started this adventure knowing nothing about cats. Had these things happened to one of you cat-savvy du'ers, I am sure there would have been a lot less anguish and a lot less second-guessing.

At this point, Nikita is still outside, but I believe she is contemplating coming in part time. I have opened the door, and she has started in, but each time backs back out. Yet, when I leave the door open, she often looks around as if studying the environment like a prospective tenant considering a new move. Her eyes inevitably land on Cheyenne, who is usually asleep on the couch and impervious to the scrutiny. It appears to me that Nikita is weighing whether or not this would be a situation that works. She has made a couple of moves when we have been out on our walks to engage Cheyenne, but Cheyenne has no idea what is going on. This will simply take time I believe.

So just to start this thread off, I will post a couple of messages in my private email on situations which one DU'er was so kind and generous enough to help me through. These will follow soon.
