What was I thinking!
My DH is home, by choice, a lot now. My DD and I decided a pet would be a nice companion. He agreed and we filled out adoption papers last Friday and on Saturday we had word that we had been approved
and that we could pick him up. DH had found a
very much like one we had several years ago.
We brought the
home on Saturday at about 1:00. Almost as soon as we took him from the carrier he dashed away and before we could say a word he was gone. We looked and looked under chairs, sofas, beds, tables, behind doors and couldn't find "Tigger" (named prior to adoption). We were unable to find him at all on Saturday. It was Sunday evening at 7:00 PM when we heard the first "Meow". We retrieved him from under a daybed which had a trundle and had him hidden really good. Brought him out, but, he wouldn't eat and was definitely not social. He had run to a fireplace and crawled close to the wall and was not coming out. We finally went to bed thinking, in the morning, he would be calm and hopefully be ready to settle.
Monday morning he was gone again and no show at all that day, however on Tuesday morning the food I had placed for him to find had been 50% eaten! Thank goodness we know he is OK at least and everyone says when he adjusts to the sounds and the house he will eventually come out and we just have to wait. So, wait we will!
