Dept. of Cats, I Can't Even

Well, We've Decided

If the young lady who originally offered to take Tommy and Lily is still willing, and if FB is OK with it, we're going to move the twins over to Sarah's place. Poor Opie can barely move from one place to another, and he's peeing and defecating at all hours of the day now. And he's clearly miserable. The twins have taken to following him around - I'm fairly certain it's not because they're sadistic little twerps; I think it's more that theyr'e noticing something off about Opie.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter. I want my Opie to stop being so miserable.

Sigh.

I'm waiting to hear back from FB on whether he's touched base with the potential replacement foster family. If I don't hear back from him soon, I'll contact her myself. I hate to be so mean about it, but things have definitely not gotten any better.

Aw. :( Poor sad kitty. There is not much that is sadder than a miserable pet, especially when you can't immediately fix the problem.

I know; you keep wanting to tell them things will be ok, and you repeatedly remember that a) things aren't really going to be ok for a while and b) they don't speak or understand English.

I'm waiting to hear back from my FB, but I'm getting increasingly impatient.

If Opie is still having trouble, you may want to look into Feliway to help destress him.

You're not the first person who's suggested Feliway; I think that, even if we don't have the twins for very much longer, I'm going to invest in some of the spray to see if it can help us transition Opie back to being only a little squirrelly, and a lot happier.

Sometimes, it doesn't work. My elder kitty Smokey absolutely HATED it and we tried both collars and the diffuser. To this day, she still hates Pippin...:-/

Poor kitty. Given that my Snip is still taking too much issue with the kitten to be able to spring him from pussycat purdah yet, I can just picture how miserable your Opie must be. They can put on such sad widdle faces...

Given the circumstances, perhaps "widdle" is not the word we're looking for ... heh ....

Thanks, dear - by now, you know what happened and how the outcome appears to be going.

Sounds like the best plan at this point. *sighs and hugs*

Indeed; and it appears to have worked, or at least is in the process of working.
