Addendum to the kitten sleepover

After we left on Wednesday evening, Zoe apparently lost all bravery she once possessed. She hid in Mary's closet; she hid under Mary's bed. She crept out to eat some breakfast on Thursday morning, although not a lot, as she was starving and scarfed down food once she arrived back home on Thursday evening. We assume she used the litterbox when she was there, as she didn't rush upstairs to use it, when she got home.

She's still going back there during our honeymoon though--she's almost eleven months old and quite a big girl. She can learn to deal with her parents taking a vacation. =)

(Plus, the company of Mary and her husband, plus Maggie and Marlowe, will be good for her. Much better than sitting at home and being bored all day.)

You haven't had a cat before, have you? She'd probably be much happier being bored at home, provided someone popped in occasionally to say hello and provide food.

Don't worry, she just had the first-night jitters. Once she's been there two or three days, she should settle in and make friends with the resident kitties.

buffysquirrel, she is our first cat, but in this case, I know she's going to go nuts, if left alone that long.

She's used to be me being home all day, and she gets upset when we're gone, even if I just go into the city for a day. She's very dog-like in that aspect, actually; she likes to hang out in the same room with us, and just sort of nonchalantly pretend that she's not doing it because she likes us. =)

Aww, poor baby. My cat always takes some time to warm up to a new place and new animals. I'm sure she'll get used to it with time while you're gone.

If she had a companion, yeah, she'd do better at home. But as she's an only child, I agree - the sleepover is much, much better :)
