    Major has a trial home!

    We sent Major to a new home this morning with my daughter and her kids. That cat was awesome with those children! He was relaxed and happy around them. Even when the 21 month old tripped and fell on him, they both got up and continued playing! It's as if he recognized these are his hoomans.

    My grandkids LOVE him. So my daughter agreed to a two day trial. I sent them home with food, litter, toys, and a sweet cat who doesn't get along with other cats. I'm a little nervous how he'll react to their three year old Jack Russell. Cooper is your typical hyper JRT. He's also bad. No training and they don't try (don't tell my daughter I said that!) BUT something makes me think he will wrestle and play. I think it will be a good fit.

    So please send out those amazing PT vibes that this trial works. I want this boy to find his forever home. I want my peaceful home again!

    If Major is happy with everyone and vice versa, it's a win!

    Oy, I'm a bad grandma (or at the very least - bad at math) when I said Logan was 21 months old.... add 12 months to that! He will be 3 soon. Sheesh! He's a very loud, busy, and exuberant almost 3 year old. And he loves loves loves the cats. Major actually plays with him, and Logan is thrilled he is willing to play.

    Fingers crossed here! Sounds like the perfect fit, assuming the JRT and him get along.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    So, reports are that he's spent the day hiding, coming out, hiding. Poor boy must be way overwhelmed. He does have a stress collar on, so hope that helps.

    I'm keeping fingers crossed and praying this works.

    Catastic news! I need to look up Major's story.

    Found the post, and I even commented a few times.

    I do have a question: how did you acquire Major?

    It's a totally new environment for him, with many new people and the doggie to get to know. He'll want to have a safe place to hide in when he feels overwhelmed. Give him time and lots of love, and I bet he'll come around.

    Callie found him. She KNEW something was under our porch. So, for a week, whenever we let her outside. She danced around the steps and conveniently forgot to do her business (grrrrr). Hubby told me to crawl under and see what we had. No way, Jose! Who know what wild life could be under there!

    So a week goes by and Callie outed a small terrified brown tabby. I collared her and drug her back in the house. He managed to wedge himself under the truck by the time I grabbed food for him. He was one hungreeee boy. I grabbed him and brought him inside. The rest, they say, is history.

    He hated my cats since day one. He got his name because Callie was being a major pain in the rump over the new cat that she wasn't allowed to see.

    Well it seems he's doing well. Getting along with the dog we worried about... playing and all. We figured their sweet shep mix would ignore him. Nope, he tried to ram through the sliding glass door! I hope they give these boys a very supervised face to face.

    But on the human side, he's absolutely happy. Some more little hoomans came over and he happily played till he grew tired. Then he went and found a quiet hide hole. That makes me so happy. You have no idea how happy I am with that report.

    Now to get big dog to not see him as prey.
