A few weeks ago we brought Bobby's cat Derringer to live with us. Bobbys parent's had been previously keeping him where he was confined to a very small room in the house, thanks to the big "mean" dog they also have lol. We all decided it would be best for Derringer to have room to roam and not have to worry about a big dog trying to eat him.
The night we loaded Derringer into the carrier, he was scared to death, meowed constant and loudly all the way home. And I do mean all. the. way. home. We get him here he is afraid to get out of the carrier then runs to one of the back rooms and is out of sight. For a few days we had no idea where he was.
I being worried about him (and the thought of what he could be doing to my belongings) and grabbed a flashlight and started out on the mission to find him. He was balled up in the far back corner of the bed in the spare bedroom where no one could get to him. After about an hour of me trying to coax him out, and him moving from one side of the bed to the other. Hissing and batting his paw at me... he FINALLY decided to come out of hiding.
It was very slow at first and he was extremely timid and EVERYTHING made him jump. Since that night.. he has adjusted very well and has made himself feel right at home including... sleeping on our bed.
I have heard that when dogs and cats sleep on their backs (feet in the air lol) that is a sign that they are happy and content....... he must be very happy with his new home
We went out and bought him a few cat toys. Guess what he decides he wants to play with.... Somewhere, somehow he found the pull tab off of a gallon of milk. That folks, is his toy of choice. Coulda saved my money lol
