Skills: Jumping to try to catch the laser on the wall, mol!
Arrival Story: Former owner was elderly, sick and unable to keep him beyond Feb 2012 and passed away due to the cancer. Since I'm home alone most of the time I made the decision to adopt him. He is an awesome cat! He greets visitors instead of running and hiding.
Mom's therapist called and let us know that she completed the paperwork and faxed it back to the new property management so now I should be cleared to move right in. If they need my vet records mom has them (scan & e-mail) or can get the contact info from the papers to provide them.
Mom is trying to hide boxes from me! Since we have just about a month 'til moving day she's gonna start packing this weekend and pack as much and often as possible the next few weeks. She's excited to get out of here. She knows I'm going to freak out once I get on the elevator and we cross the train tracks (it usually means I'm going to the vet! MMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWW!) but will have me in my Thundershirt and try to set things up similar to how it is here before I'm let loose. My soft carrier is under the small table in the living room so she'll do that and set up my cat tree by the living room window again.
Moving out of here won't be the worst thing with the rolling carts for boxes and stuff to move furniture, plus the 2 elevators that make it easier. The new home is right in the front door to the right on the ground level (nothing below us but basement, 1 person above and next to us, 1 person across the "hall" from us) so even though there isn't anything to help move once there it should be simple to get everything moved in.
Mom and I are hissing mad that the doctor has yet to fill out the paperwork and return it to the management of our new home. Until that happens I am not welcome to live there. Mom tried to call today to set it right but the doc wasn't in today so hopefully tomorrow that can be resolved. We still have a little over a month before the move so the sooner it's done & turned in the sooner we can breathe a sigh of relief.
Mom already turned in the 30 day move out notice but had to put the 6th of June for vacate day since the current person there now doesn't know when she can move to her house yet. She's starting to get boxes & stuff together and start packing soon. She went through her closet & dresser & found some stuff she doesn't really use anymore so hopes to get rid of it soon.
The air conditioner is uncovered now at our current place. It feels so much better in here with the weather warming up.
By here, I mean our current apartment! Everything went through just fine so once the calendar flips to June mom will be moving our stuff to the new apartment! She's really excited and can't wait to leave with 1 last door slam.
Last night was potluck so yesterday she made an easy apple pie (roll out crusts & canned filling - assemble & bake) to break the news to the few current neighbors who attended the dinner.
She can't afford a decent house so getting a better apartment is much more manageable.
