Bringing Hobo home with us

Hi.  Thanks for all the comments and condolences over Dave's passing.  I'm still having trouble wrapping my mind around the fact he left so suddenly, and so soon.

But I managed to move Hobo back to our home.  He is not real happy, but he has been around here before, and he seems to be adjusting.  This house has few internal doors, for some reason, so it is hard to have a room reserved as Base Camp for the integration.  I've put a partition blocking off one room, but Billy White Shoes has already proved he can climb that any time he really wants.  I suspect the rest of them could as well if they felt the urge.  So it looks like Hobo and the rest of the clowder might get merged together a bit quicker than I would prefer.

The first day, Hobo hissed at everyone who entered his room.  Now he pretty much ignores the kitties, and will let me rub his head and stroke his back.  So we are making progress.

It will take time, and the grief will (as I am sure you know) will change shape.

I hope Hobo settles in soon, seems like he is already making progress!

Hang in there Hobo. Just assert yourself, sharpen your claws, and beat up every dog in sight. Make sure you are the king of the castle.

We wanted to let you know about that bed that Pasha was sleeping in. Ani got lucky and found it for a bargain price at TJ Maxx, and then later saw the same one at Ross. We hope you find one. It's a really nice bed and good for cold season.
