We collected Mouse at 9am this morning and she has spent the day in the living room with us. We’ve kept the door closed, so she could get over the first shock without having to contend with other cats.
Mouse has hidden behind an armchair or under a table the whole time, as is to be expected. However, we have lifted her out and cuddled her a few times and she has been very calm and happy to be handled.
Half an hour ago, we opened the door and Milka and Percy came dashing in. The complete dopes know something is up, but they still haven’t found Mouse! I will report tomorrow on what happens when the resident cats finally understand that there is a new little stranger in their midst.
