A reader who has done kitty rescue/fostering gave me some good tips on getting Boots here and getting him used to the new place. Soon (I hope) Vince will be coming here and he’ll bring Boots. Vince won’t be staying long but Boots will be here for good.
Last night I felt like an expectant mother! I ordered a new litter box, kitty litter from Chewy, a mat to go under the litter box, and a few toys.
I think we’ll keep Boots in the sewing room at first. There will still be a ton of boxes but there’s also the love seat in there so I can sit and knit with him. That’s what I did with him in the sewing room in Texas. Hopefully, he’ll adjust and adapt after a week or so and as soon as he’s starting to seem like he feels at home, he can have the run of the house.
One good thing is that when we go outside, we go through the laundry room, then through the walk out door in the garage. Vince and I will be careful to close the laundry room door behind us before opening the door to the garage and that way, we can be sure Boots hasn’t slipped into the laundry room and then out the door.
It’s going to be a crazy few weeks when he first gets here but I’ll be so glad to have him back with me.
