Sammie’s Tail Part 28
To make a long story short, Bettinna gradually got comfortable in the house. She loved to look out windows and look outside from the little screen area.
We put a TV tray table there for her to be able to see out. We bought a cat tree to fit in front of another window for those cold or too hot days. She discovered the front window too and knew how to move the blinds with her paws.
I moved my office to the basement and closed the door so I could have privacy. She figured out how to get in, so we decided let both cats enjoy the basement and expand their territory. At first she was more nervous but gradually adapted. She was more sensitive to food and I found the odd hairball and throw up.
Both cats did not like when I put the laxatone for hairball gel in their food. To put it on their paws was hard without trauma and meowing. So I am now using laxatone treat chews. Bettinna loves them and with other treats she now sits on command and gives kisses on our nose, even without the treats. I still need to capture a good video of that. I will try again.
Bettinna seems to learn a lot and Sammie is adapting to her as well. They are fighting or playing, hard to tell sometimes. But they will work it out. North Shore Animal league behaviorist was very helpful with my annoying freaking out type of calls. These are my kids so I am more than sensitive perhaps.
Bettinna is so comfortable, I think she thinks she owns our house. I am happy about that and would not want anything else.
