Today Thea goes to the vet to have her second set of jabs. She’s settling in well. There’s a lot to get used to, what with a new environment, strange noises (engine, rowers, swans pecking at weed, stove pipes bubbling etc) let alone getting used to Lyra. The two have now met, and are doing as well as can be expected – they’ve not fought but Lyra has asserted her dominance with some grumpy huffs and low yowls. They keep to themselves at the moment, with Thea occupying the bathroom and bedroom and Lyra having the rest of the boat. When Thea is with us in the bedroom, she’s very sweet and affectionate. snuggling up at our feet most nights. I’ve ordered some Feliway (artificial cat pheromone diffuser) which has come recommended as a cat de-stresser but it’s not arrived yet annoyingly.
Thea also needed her own ticker, to match Lyra’s. See the side bar.
