I can’t tell you how exciting it is that Lola is in Singapore
She used the bathroom within minutes of arriving. I went to the toilet and she came with me and I don’t know if it was out of habit or need, she tends to follow me in and go when I go, but she went. Usually, after a long and stressful car ride, it is hours before she uses the bathroom or eats. I get super worried about her when she isn’t comfortable enough to go.
I put out dry food and water, she had some food at about the 20 minutes mark. Around about 40 minutes after getting home she was playing with a
Lola settling in and using the bathroom
Tomorrow she might crash as her excitement to see us wanes and her exhaustion for the past few days sets in. Maybe she isn’t going to crash. Maybe she loved meeting new people and exploring new places and it is all ok now that she is here with us.
Now I am overstimulated. All that stress about her trip being terrible and the effect it would have on her. The assumption that it would be horrid for her. Al of that has gone because she has the energy to make everything in the unit hers. No time for us, just happy we are here, not until everything is hers. We are hers, the couch is hers, every couch is hers, the walls, chairs, bed, cushions, fridge, vacuum, tv, the other tv, towels, washing machine. It is all hers. She may have time for cuddles with us when she has finished claiming everything.
Yay. She is here. She is actually here. Lola is in Singapore. She knows this is her home. She is happy and relaxed. Purring non-stop. Exploring, playing, sitting, claiming, non-stop. It is us and her, for the first time. No flatmates. Just us. But I know her
Oh yeah, we didn’t buy a doona cover like we were planning to. That was on the list for the 5-day break. We will have to get one this weekend. Something cat will like.
Lola is so happy to see us she forgot to be scared of fireworks
She was sitting on the bed while the 10pm fireworks were going off at Marina Bay and this is her look.
Naw, now she is on the back of the click-clack couch. Everything she does is so cute!
Just before bedtime, I put out some wet food for her. I didn’t want to waste it by putting it out too early, she likes it fresh from the can. Given that she already ate some dry food, I thought best give her the one she likes and that way I will also know she has some fluids. She ate some right away.
Oh no, when Triston turned the light off to go to sleep, she jumped to the other couch and sharpened her claws. Um, that’s not our lounge Lolypols.
The good news is that Lola snacked all night. This morning she jumped on to the bathroom vanity demanding the tap be turned on, something we somehow taught her in Sydney. So, within 12 hours of arrival, everything you could hope for has been completed – toilet, food, water. The only thing she hasn’t done a whole lot of is sleep. There is always today for that.
Lola is in Singapore!!!!
