She finally arrived from Melbourne in a ‘jet pac’ That’s a cat or small animal carrier. When I saw her through the cage walls I saw her shaking and shivering and didn’t know if she was cold or frightened. I signed for her, took her to the car, lay the cage on the ground and slowly and gently took her out and cuddled her close.
The lovely people I bought her from had supplied fresh water but it had tipped all over the soft quilt bedding enclosed and the inside of the cage was soaked. She had also had a vomit and a large one and was sitting in this horrible mess. Poor baby. I hate to think it was caused by the handlers at the airports.
I put a harness on her and struggled to do it up because it was a bit big for her but we managed and we walked with her and Boo to a grassed area where she could stretch her legs and do a wee if need. She settled a bit and then we were off home in the car. A slow but sure drive home hanging onto them in laps. When we got home she spent the next few hours sniffing around our home and getting used to everything. Drinking copious amounts of fresh water and chewing on a lamb’s ear to help get rid of the acid on her teeth from the vomit. I partially cooked a bit of steak and rice for her to help get something into her stomach and to help settle it and at the moment she is laying on the lounge snoozing. Her and Boo have had a big day today and are getting lots of love and attention from us. Boo has been wondering what on earth is this totally strange pet doing in her home? but she will get used to her. They have been quite good but watching each other to assess the situation. I’m sure they will be firm friends.
