The Big Change Revealed

The Big ChangeOh my catness! Mom finally told us what the big change is. As some of you guessed from the boxes, we are moving. But that’s not the half of it. I’m not going to be a city cat anymore. I’m going to be a country cat! Thank catness I don’t have to be as “country” as my country cousins. I’ll still be an indoor kitty but mom says it will be very different there.

She didn’t tell us sooner what was going on because things kept changing. She knew we had to move in October but she didn’t know where exactly we were going to live. Two options near where we live now, both of which she thought were meant to be, didn’t work out. Then, about three weeks ago, she was talking to her friend, Kelly, who moved up north to gold country a couple of years ago. The Sun rolling 3house right next door to her was going to be available the end of this month. That’s exactly where mom wanted to live! Mom’s plan was always to retire to this area but she thought it would be 3-5 years before that could happen. Once she had a couple of other things arranged and knew she could really make this work, she told us all the news. She is so excited, so I guess I’m getting a little excited too.

Mom says she’s going to see about building us a catio. We could never have one here because of all the restrictions at the condo complex. Now that sounds intriguing to me–a safe room of our very own where we can lay in sun puddles, look at wildlife and smell the fresh air. Mom says deer come right in the yard there!

Sun rollingThe harness training continues since mom still wants me to be able to walk on a leash. As you know, I’m a bit of a weenie when it comes to going outside. I’ve only been out once when mom took me out on my leash and I was pretty scared. Today, she put me outside in a three-story condo. I really wasn’t liking it so she put my brother, Ocean, out with me to keep me company. Well, guess what. He was a bigger weenie than me! After a short time, she let us out onto the patio and Ocean wanted to go back in the house.

I was still pretty nervous so I stayed right next to mom. But it was so sunny and warm, I couldn’t help but lose myself in the rolling around and stretching. It was almost as intoxicating as the nip!

Eventually, I even started exploring a little bit.

Investigating 1Once back in the house, I heaved a sigh of relief and rested in my favorite afternoon sun puddle area, reflecting on my adventure outside.

  5. Oh- Oh….a move….somewhere different! I’d be terrified Christy Paws. The boxes would be cool though. A catio will be awesome as the smells that hit your nose will keep you guessing for hours. Have fun with the boxes.


  6. Wow! Pawesome! A new adventure. just think of all the fun you’ll have finding new places to cat nap! And the boxes… the endless boxes! Enjoy my furiend!

    You will be living kind-of near me – in Northern California. It’s nice here, except for the rainy cold winters when all the windows have to stay closed. I’m not much of an outdoor cat either. 20 minutes is more than enough for me and if I hear any noises, I run for the patio door and mom must pay attention or my harness pulls really tight. Hopefully you’ll get a catio and you’ll be able to relax safely outside.

  8. This sounds like a wonderful change for you and your human. Change can be scary, but potentially having your own catio would be wonderful!

    Don’t forget, moving means boxes, lots of boxes, an added plus!

    The only time I go out is in the PTU to the stabby place and I don’t like it. TW talks about a fairytale where we move and I have a catio but it’s just a fairytale cos we don’t have money to move. I’m happy it worked out for your human.

  12. What an exciting adventure! How lucky for you that your mom is going to build you a catio. We would love one of those too. Maybe one day!!

  13. so incredibly happy for you!! You have exciting times ahead of you! Do you follow The Katnip Lounge? She lives in Nevada and has an AMAZING catio!
    Love, Cody

  14. I’m so excited for you! What an exciting adventure you’re going to have 🙂

  15. Let me know when the house warming party is! A catio sounds pawsome. You’ll love it I’m sure. Hope you get lots of treats to ease the transition 🙂

    • Christy Paws says:

      We will be moving on the 22nd but mom has to come back down here for a couple of weeks in November. I’m sure we’ll have a house warming party after that! Don’t know if I’ll get my catio before winter but I can hope!

  16. I bet you’ll love living out in a rural setting so many things that will catch your interests! Thank you for visiting us!

  17. Sammy says:

    How exciting! We “sort of” live in the country – we’re nowhere near the big city but still in a development and still close to shopping for Mom. I know you’ll love your new home – it’s always a bit weird at first but once you explore and find new hiding spots – it will be FAB!

    Hugs, Sammy

    • Christy Paws says:

      I’m looking forward to new hiding spots. I love it when mom is looking for me and I can see her but she can’t see me! Mom says that although our house is in a relatively rural area we won’t be too far from shopping. That’s important, she said.

  18. Marg says:

    Christy Paws, we think you will enjoy living in the country. Lots of birds, rabbits and all kind of animals will come visit you. Hope you like your new home. Have a great Monday.
