I see a few posts from you again. I take it you got the computer back working. What happened with it, any ideas? Mine has been going haywire on me, I have no clue what is up with it. I have had some trouble at times logging on here, finding multiple posts, then going back and deleting all the extras. Just crazy stuff.
It sounds like your company is becoming a bit of a pain. You are so right in not letting him out. Cats don't move well at all as a rule, thats another reason he is giving you some grief, being in a strange place and wanting to go out and roam too. When we moved to our home 20 yrs ago, my vet said to keep my cat inside for several weeks and gradually take him out a little at a time. He was an indoor/outdoor cat. He said otherwise if I just let him out there was a good chance he would take off and not come back. Boy, he was awful, he decided he liked it upstairs and pretty much confined himself up there. But, several times a day he would sit at the top of the stairs and just holler that awful sound.lol. He was real skiddish outside at first. Then one day he found the boat on the side of the house and jumped up on it and bingo, he found his old scent and knew he was at home and he did fine from then on. We had the boat covered and he loved to lay up there in the sun and sleep all day. It was like a light came on for him once he smelled his scent on that cover.
I hope you computer stays up and running. Have no idea what mine is going to do. Feel like pitching it out the window sometimes.
We had another snow hit yesterday. it started out raining, turning to sleet and then snow. It was real pretty but gone this morning. Now, its nice and muddy. We have just had some crazy weather thats for sure, snow 3 times in one month is unheard of in this part of the country. Our temps are way down too for this time of year. Trying to stay warm and dry.
Good luck with your little visitor.
