A few years ago, I reassured a close friend, that when I was needed, I would take her cat Chrissie and care for her. Unfortunately our friends time came last Friday morning. I got the call around noon.
But a couple of hours before that call came, I was just working on a little knitting project. Out of somewhere, I don’t know where, I felt kind of a nudge in my chest and then felt this feeling of relief come over me.
I kind of interpreted that to mean that my muse was waking up and letting me know that this “time out” I was taking was over and I needed to get back to my workroom. Well after the call came, I knew what it was I had experienced. If you believe that people let you know they are moving on, then that’s what I felt that nudge was for.
Since then, it’s been an interesting few days of integrating a new cat into our home. The first day, she took charge and sent poor Radar running for cover. The next day, it was her doing that. Now it’s just a day to day thing, where these two are feeling out this situation and each day there is less tension.
There is a bit of hiss you, no, hiss you, going on, but it will settle down. It helps that the neighbours cat comes everyday, he’s such a Zen cat, that he brings a sense of calm to them. Max is a very cool cat.
Poor Chrissie though, she’s on a new grain free eating plan and has to go up and down stairs. All very good for her because she needs to slim down. ;o) Here she is. and I’ll be back soon with the last of the reveiws for now.
