Hi folks.
We've been preparing my MIL for the big move out of her house to live with a friend a few miles away. Yesterday we moved a bunch of stuff over and today even more. Today we decided to move the MIL and the cats as well.

MIL has two black cats, Ebony and Zeke (a.k.a "Little Sh*t"). Ebony is about
12 and a big, fat, lazy, loveable, fuzzy bowling ball. He's 13 to 15 lbs,give or take an inch and the sweetest, most laid back cat I've ever met. As long as Eb has a food bowl and his mommy, he's perfectly happy. Zeke is a little fat kitty, born of white trash and full of trouble from the get go. Over the last two years she's gotten pretty sweet, but still wary of anyone but her meowmie.So today we take said cats to the new place. We put Zeke into the carrier and Eb sits on MIL's lap, looking bored. Zeke just quietly lay in the carrier. When they got to the house, they brought Eb and Zeke inside then opened the carrier door. Eb poked around and made acquaintance with the resident cat (MIL lives in two rooms of her friend's house, they share a kitchen and bathroom), a pretty chubby little un-named grey with orange highlights kitty.

She's a sweety... MIL's friend feeds her and lets her in and stuff, but the friend isn't too fond of kitties, and hasn't even named it LOL. But she takes great care of it. Anyway, Eb was walking up the stairs to the room connecting the living spaces when across the hall there stood Girl Cat (name?). Girl cat goes all Halloween poses, hissing and growling. Eb stands there, blinks once, then plops down on the floor, apparently bored to tears. Girl Cat is disturbed by this behavior and skitters off, growling all the way.

I later told Eb not to worry about it, she was just surprised by the incredible hunka male cat meat standing in her house. I mean, he *is* quite the catch. During all this, where is Zeke? Still in the carrier. Hasn't moved. Hasn't said a word. Isn't going to either, unless you want to lose a hand. Eventually MIL pulled her out of carrier and she scooted behind the couch.
Once the cats get used to the place, they can go outside. Actually, you could let Eb out 30 seconds after you showed him the food dish and he'd never fail to find his way home. Zeke I'm a bit worried about though, she could get spooked and take off. They have a huugggeee field to play in outside their door, and lots of yard to lounge about in, lots of trees to climb. The house is on a big corner lot (shaped like a baseball field a bit, not the whole diamond, teh curvy thing going to the point), set a bit back from the road, but these cats were raised in a trailer park and are used to lounging about in the road while the cars drive around them. Purrs on that anyway, please.
Well, that's it for now. Emotion: smile

If I want to hear the pitter patter of little feet, I'll put shoes on the cats!

Sounds like a great new cat home, lots of area to play in. Purrs that they settle in quickly, and learn to fear those nasty cars.
Purrs,
