A week ago (today is May 16) I adopted two cats, one is the surrogate mother (name is Star) to the other (who's name is Pepsi), who will be a year old in August. (back story) So Star got knocked up the first time she was in heat and delivered 4 but lost 1 at the vet, a day later Pepsi came in and was given to Star who took her on. The woman I adopted them from let me know they essentially, have been house hoping since. She was where they went back to, since they were adopted out twice but things didn't turn out well. And had actually traumatised them. So now being with me this past week, I heard it takes a month for them to adjust. I get that. But I'm just wondering what's "normal" for my own peace of mind for them. So there home base is under my couch, and I've seen them wondering around. Which is good! I'm really happy that they are! But now I've noticed that Star has found the top of the fridge, and that's her home base #2, but she isn't venturing out much from there. Atleast of what I've seen. And the two girls are a bonded pair, and Pepsi doesn't know how to jump yet lol! So she occasionally goes to the fridge to meow at Star to get her to come down. Sometimes she does, but often then not, she doesn't. If she want's her own space, I totally get it! But my heart goes out to Pepsi and I'll try to go to her and pet her to console her. Letting her know she has me. Altho a bit of her history! The foster said she wasn't able to pet her, altho I've been able to pet her she's still a bit sceptical but then sees it's ok. But is it ok, or normal, for this kind of behavior? Is there anyway I can make them both comfortable or should I wait it out a bit longer?
