Jill asked how the cats handled the move so I thought I'd share how they are doing since it is actually an interesting story.
Starting about the time the packers came, our outdoor cat Everest became very clingy to me. She was always on my lap or following me around the house. This was very unusual behavior for her as she spent most of her time outside and only came in to eat. She generally wanted nothing to do with us. We stopped letting her out a few days before we left the DE house to make sure she was around and she was actually fine with that.
The morning of the our last day in DE, Logan accidentally let Everest outside! It was panic time. I was brushing my teeth when I heard him scream and then he started crying hysterically. I dropped my toothbrush and ran downstairs. Everest was standing on the back deck, basically waiting for me to come get her. It was like she ran out and then realized we were leaving and she didn't want to be out there! I went out and picked her up no problem. Again, very unusual for her.
I loaded both the cats into the car and again they acted weird. Rainier, the cuddly one wanted nothing to do with me and sat under Logan's feet the whole trip, while Everest cuddled in my lap. This behavior continued the whole time we were at my dad's house, with both cats acting out of character.
When we got to GA, Everest found a hole in the suspended ceiling in the basement and hid there for 4 days. This was more like her. Rainier became cuddly again as soon as our furniture arrived. Everest is now out of the ceiling and more affectionate than she ever was in DE. The weirdest thing is that she has shown no desire to go outside since we got here. In DE, she spent 90% of her time outside. It is like she doesn't think outside exists here or something. The only door we use goes into the garage, so she hasn't seen us going in and out a door to the outside. I'm not sure if she forgot about outside or what.
So, the cats have adjusted nicely and seem happy to be here with us. I'm happy to now have 2 affectionate cats. They both sleep with us at night and sit on my lap when I'm on the couch.
