|Reunited with Cat #1...||[Dec. 1st, 2008|06:40 pm]|
This evening I brought Snake home.|
I wasn't expecting to be able to do this so soon; but after the last rainstorm, I decided I'd had quite enough of sleeping under a leaky skylight, and grabbed the unoccupied bedroom at the house I'd been parked just outside. Now that I'm getting paid for tutoring, I can afford it -- and it's a pet-friendly house.
Shnookums screamed for the entire ride over (the poor thing hates cars), but she's now drifting between freaking out at being in a new and unfamiliar place and celebrating the fact that a) there are no other cats here (so my room is her territory -- she's had to share space for awhile), and b) I'm here more than just once in awhile. I've arranged things so that she can easily get to the two highest places in the room -- the top of my bookcase and the high shelf in my closet.
I'm having to reevaluate how I'm going to arrange the room when I get a second bookshelf; Snake will never be happy until she has a way to get to the top of it. There isn't enough room next to the current bookcase, but if I put the new one (when I get it -- another month or two) next to my "dresser" (read: "stack of plastic crates in a frame"), she'll be able to get to the top of the shelves without too much of a leap.
Tonight I expect to wake up more than once with a cat on my face.
