2. The desolation when Nikita disappeared (text of message to a DU'er for consolation)

I was not myself when Nikita left. I reached out to the same person who has been giving me great advice:

It is odd I happened to find this message at this moment. For the first time, I have been crying over Nikita. The last 2 to 3 days have changed our relationship. Everything was going so perfectly until those other two cats showed up. She has taken to hanging out with them and being here less. Today when she came back after disappearing with the carmel-colored cat for a long time, her attitude towards me was more standoffish.

There had been a couple more instances of the shrieking noises today and I ran out to find out what was going on, I couldn't see them anywhere. So I don't know what the relationship is between her and the other two cats; I do believe she lived with them under my neighbor's foundation. So perhaps the three of them were friends, pals, they missed her being there and came here to be with her and to share her food. When that didn't happen, she went back to from whence she came. I have a very bad feeling this is where this relationship is heading. So just now when I thought I heard her meowing, I went to feed her, but she was not there. I stood out in the yard and called her name, and she didn't respond. I have done this before, and she has come running. Not tonight.

I do think I am losing my appeal to her, and she will only come back if she is hungry. I had such great hopes for this but now I think I am losing the battle.

I think I mentioned before I don't really know much about cats, I have never had one. I am thinking you might know more about the psychology of what is going on here. If you have any thoughts, I would welcome them. Up until a couple of days ago, I had a plan and was implementing it, but circumstances seem to have taken over.

Thank you for listening,
