Can I harrass you with both frequent questions, generalized crybaby hand-holding and unwanted pictures and anecdotes only a cat-lady could possibly care about? 'Cause that would be great.
Honestly, she has spent all of today sleeping. Which is a big change from yesterday of...all of it sleeping. She's gotten some intermittant stroking and cuddles for like minute sessions but then goes back to sleep. She's not being very high maintenance at the moment.
She has not peed or pooped at all, unless she stealthed to the box in the middle of the night and peed. We found her Saturday night. Should I be concerned she hasn't? The vet acted like maybe I just haven't found it but she sleeps under the bed and a) we'd smell that and b) I checked under the bed and all she's done is rumple a pillow.
Today after going to the vet and being advised to keep her separate from Grue, we shut her in the 2nd bedroom (which is my husband's office and incidentally his Starcraft computer so not a place she is isolated or alone) and she has really enjoyed being brat-cat free and also sleeping next to DH's foot under his desk. He's given her some cuddles every now and then and she's been passed out by his foot, though she wakes up and rubs and purrs occasionally.
She has a box in the corner with a grotty old towel, but she hasn't set foot in it or really left DH's side.
We have contacted 7 local vets and all were super-nice about putting a gray on the found cat list, but none have one on their missing cat list, except for 1 boy cat.
We're calling her Roswelle now. (DH: "Oh, I guess we're going to call her Roswelle 'cause she's gonna be here a while)
Yes, a creative spelling - DH insists it looks more feminine than just Roswell.
I said he can call her anything he wants. But he's being really sweet with her, though he says he'll make fun of me and cast this up to me until the end of time. I was going to put newspapers in her nesting box but he says "that's not comfy, it'd be all scratchy, we'll use this old towel..."
