Thusly moved

Yesterday was a harrowing afternoon for Sisu. I foolishly didn't realise how much all the noise and strangers and packing activity would upset her, so when I extracted her from under the bed mid-afternoon she clung to my shoulder (i.e. sank her claws right in) and spent the rest of the afternoon quavering there in terror.

Much, much later, I eased her into a box where she could ball herself and, uh, quaver some more.

Waiting I

Waiting II

Ink was less nonplussed, just more crotchety at being boxed up for several hours.

We're now installed at my parents' for the interim, which would not have been possible without the family and friends who showed up, helped, advised and made ironic wisecracks. This whole experience has made me realise, however, that maybe I need to make more lawyer friends.

It's been an exhausting couple of days, and tomorrow the writing must resume.

Poor Sisu! Hope she's feeling better now.

Yeah, Chaos gets the same way each time I take her to vet. Cowering in the transport and meowing endlesssly and shedding an entire coat of fur in the process. Hope the little critter adapts to her new home.

Lawyer friends are indeed full of awesome.
