LNCAG Posted April 17 Share Posted April 17 Been a sad and weird day. Ces came by a little after noon-time and picked up Snickers. I've known for a few days when the pick-up would be, so tried to give Snickers a little extra attention. I let Snickers watch a few sanctuary videos on my laptop. Not that he knew he was headed there himself, but he seemed to enjoy watching them. He was super quiet in his kitty carrier when I handed him off, he had to be confused and scared to be leaving me and going off with some stranger. I expect he'll be stressed and somewhat shy/scared for a while until he adjusts there. He'll be the new kid on the block out this week, but I'm hoping he'll make friends soon (a female love interest would help move things along quicker). Knowing he may not eat/drink well for the first few days, I made sure he got his favourite apple slices (honey crisp) more often and that he ate other higher calorie (fattier) foods. I know he may feel too intimidated at first to approach their food dishes if too many other greys (the regulars) rush over to the food dish and monopolize it first. Gotta be scary for him to be assertive in a new atmosphere. Snickers seemed to have slept well last night -- I'm sure it will take him a few days (nights) to settle in and get comfortable enough to sleep there. So those are my worries and concerns for now. Later I expect he will have made friends and be too active to even think about me. Anyway, it's so quiet here. I've never been this many hours without being asked "watcha doin?" 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
