While we were away, Nin went to stay with Uncle Chris and Emma.
Nin has always hated the car, and here is a sample of him protesting on the way to Uncle Chris'. (This is only a fraction of the yelling at I got when I brought him home Monday night, but being alone in the car made it impossible to tape. Needless to say, it was a long hour drive home!)
Nin did great at Uncle Chris'. As soon as we got there, he checked the place out. He didn't hiss or seem stressed, which is impressive especially when you remember he is 19.5 years old. He found great spots to sleep. Uncle Chris gave him lots of extra treats (any food he was interested in he pretty much got!). Uncle Chris reported that he was annoying (he has always been a chatty cat) but more active then he has seen him for a long time.
Emma, who normally can be found snuggling with Nin when she is visiting our house, did NOT enjoy having him in her house. She began piling all her toys so she could guard them. She did not like when he drank out of her water dish (there was another for him, but he is use to sharing with dogs). She didn't like that he slept in her spot. Overall, she was the stressed one.
Emma will be staying with us for all of February and March, so we will see how the two get along then!
Hailey and Phod were very excited to see Nin and to check him out and smell him and hump him etc. etc. when we got home and Nin seemed happy to be there.
All members of our pack had a great time away!
Sounds like everyone had a lovely vacation, but I am sure it is great to be back home together again!ReplyDelete
That is great it went well with Nin and well done to the old boy for taking everything in his stride. Sorry that Emma was not the hostess with the mostest. Have a fabulous Friday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly

Lily & Edward
I am glad that everything went ok for all of you.ReplyDelete
Oh Nin I totally HATE being in the car too! An hour was a very long ride for you AND your furramily listening to you "sing" the whole time.....I bet you're VERY happy to be home sweet home!ReplyDelete
I am glad you are home again. Our Cat Named Jack tells me that Cats (unlike us Dogs) do not like car rides. In fact you sound very mad. We enjoy visiting places, but it is always best to be at home, isn't it?
I'm glad your vacation was a success for everyone!ReplyDelete
