I hope so, too. The only hold outs are Mamou and Tux. They loved their routines, and were used to their places. I think that everyone has a touch of ptsd.
I suspect that Tux came out of a fire area originally, and Mamou is very attached to us, despite his wild ways. And, his routine. Plus, when the fire came through, they must have known how close it was. Then, the air was heavy with smoke for some time, we were nowhere to be found to reassure them, etc. There must have been a lot of fear and confusion.
Then, we made things worse by those weeks of heavy equipment, which I know that they would want to be nowhere near.
I realize that moving forward from here is all that we can do, but I can see why they may be skittish about all of the changes.
We're doing our best to bribe them up here. My next idea is to feed them in the back of Dh's tiny truck. If they will accept that from him, and I think that's possible, then I want to move it up the hill a bit at a time until they are eating up here.
I think that, once they are getting food here, they will begin showing up on their own for meals, and then staying here all the time. I have their heated cat houses ready for them.
I hope that your new baby begins feeling more comfortable and secure each day. Poor little guy sure does deserve the great home that he's now in.
We don't have the big loss of leaves, but the acorns, everywhere in the county, and the county next to ours, have all fallen at once, and in great numbers.
Speaking of your Dh...how is he doing? How is his eye? And, how about his thyroid medication?
How wonderful that you got to see the Dgd's perform! And, what a great name for the show.
That was a very nice thing to do, adding the special plaque!
Have a wonderful upcoming week!
