Ever since moving the cats into an indoor-only environment, tensions between Indy and Bicoe had increased to an all time high. No amount of Feliway, slow re-introductions or room separations could overcome the hatred between the two. Bicoe couldn't leave Indy alone and Indy was growing more and more withdrawn. It was breaking my heart to see my once playful orange cat hiding in the closet and sleeping her way into depression. She was losing weight and spent any time awake shaking in fear. Something had to be done.
Lucky for us, the Husband's parents are cat people and LOVE our lil' chatty Siamese. This weekend we drove Bicoe down to Cape Cod and transitioned her into her new house. We weathered the most recent Nor'easter getting her adjusted to her new surroundings and meeting her new siblings. She'll have two other cats to chum around with, she'll be able to go outside come Spring and best of all, she'll be looked after by people who love her. And it certainly doesn't hurt that we can go visit anytime we want.
I wish it could have worked out to keep all my furry babies in one place, but it's better all around to share the love, right?
I miss her already.
