Since her arrival in Philadelphia a little over a week ago, she has convinced me to purchase another chair (so she won't have to sit on the floor if I sit in a chair) and a lint roller. I go home from work at lunch time every day because 1) I can! and 2) to check on Cordie. I am an anxious cat owner. And she is a special needs cat, health-wise, and my awareness of her delicacy makes me more anxious. She is adapting really well, but she is stressed. She talks to me if I leave the room she is in, and she sounds anxious. She has also pulled out all the hair on one of her little knees. So she has a 0.5 cm or so bald spot on her leg. Mum feels that this is anxiety-related. I gave Cordie a gentle talking-to about it, but I'm not sure it had any effect on her.
I also a just above finished recovering from a massive summertime head cold, which hit me so hard I actually took a sick day off of work last Friday. I spent the day sleeping, then in the later afternoon ventured out for Nyquil and orange juice.
The new chair is Cordie-approved. See why I have a lint roller now?
My cat anxiety-levels are high, but under control at the moment - I am leaving for a week, and Coworker Katie and Emily of Bret&Em will drop by to keep an eye on Cordie for me. Coworker Katie visited this evening, and I think she and Cordie will get along nicely. Which is a huge relief for this anxious person!
