The cat has now arrived.
I brought her down from Arbroath in the car – about an hour’s drive. She hated it and mewed all the way. It’s taking her a while to get settled: she loves getting attention and being stroked but she’s very jumpy at sudden movements and noises. I suspect she’s feeling very insecure at the moment. She’s explored the house and likes windows and windowsills, but she’s not getting outdoors for a couple of weeks yet: we’ve been told to keep her in for at least that long to make sure she feels at home and doesn’t try and run away. Robin hasn’t reacted at all to her so far (and with some cats he’s been streaming by this point), so things are looking hopeful!
