What in the world is under Gramma’s bed? I really want to get under there, but I am too big, and that dust ruffle thing is blocking me. I spent most of my Saturday afternoon just like this photo, waiting patiently, sometimes even crying. But why? What is under there?
Meet Roxy! The cat is out of the bag and under the bed! Many of you have asked if Gramma would get another cat after losing cousin Bowie. The answer is yes! Roxy is her new kitty, and she happens to be hiding from me because she has never been around dogs. All I want to do is sniff her, and meet her, but she isn’t interested. I did put my nose in there once and she hit me with her paw and I screamed.
Gramma wasn’t sure about another kitty, but it was rather lonely without Bowie. She looked around online and came across Roxy, a four year old kitty. Roxy looked cute, and she felt sorry for her as her owner died in November and since then she had been with Wags and Whiskers Animal Rescue. Mom set up some teleconferencing, and everyone decided Roxy could live with Gramma. On May 19th, Mom picked her up and brought her to Gramma’s house.
Roxy is shy, but they told Gramma that from the beginning. She also has no experience with dogs. When she first got out of the carrier, she was checking out her new house. As you can see, she is a bit scared, but a nice kitty, and she hasn’t hissed or growled at anyone.
For the next twelve days, Gramma did not see Roxy at all, but in the night she would eat, and she would meow. Finally last week, Roxy started to warm up to Gramma. She jumps in bed with her, lets Gramma pet her sometimes, and every day she comes out more and more. She is very cute, and we know she and Gramma will become the best of friends in no time now that Roxy is starting to relax. As for me, I’ll be hanging out, trying to get Roxy out from under Gramma’s bed, maybe forever!
Saturday, we set up some scatching posts around the house for Roxy to use, rather than Gramma’s window shades, and we brought her a new toy. One day we will hopefully be able to get some better photos of her, but for now, these are it. We are happy Roxy is warming up to Gramma, and they each have someone to be with.
