Coco's flying back to her birth home...


I got a call from ML last night...the big blue Sherwood boys where stalking and being aggressive to Coco and she had become fearful and jumpy, and crying when she was separated from ML.

Although it's only been two weeks, and things might improve with some more time, ML and Charley and Auntie Deb made the decision that for Coco's happiness, it would be best to fly her back home to me.

I have had it take over 3 months for a new adult cat to settle into it's new home, but also know that the Sherwood's know their cats and if they feel that they will never let Coco into the "tribe" then yes, it's best she come back home to me so she can settle back into her life here with the least amount of stress on her.

I am sad, as I know how much Coco Charlize added to their life, and like ML and Charley and Deb said, they so enjoyed the two weeks of loving and snuggling they had with Coco...and maybe sometime in the future, there could be a Furrydance kitten in their life? Adult cats are more amenable to letting a kitten into their midst than an adult cat and so, we will see what the future brings.

So, today at 3:30pm, I will head to the airport and pick Coco up, not as much fanfare as with her arrival in Texas, but I will be happy to see her again, get her settled into the guest bedroom so she can acclimate back into the cat family slowly again, give her time to rest and nap and get used to her cat friends here again in her own time.

And Auntie Deb said when she gets back home again, she will come and visit all the Furrydance cats, and who knows...maybe the Taylor cats would like a Cornish Rex in their home?? ML said she likes the thought of that!

  4. We are purring for Ms. Coco...and hope she settles back in quickly. With our Nigel taking 4 months to be ready to come out of his room, we know how tricky it can be bringing in an adult cat to an established family.

  10. Oh, you don't know how much I miss her, so much.
    Coco was in fear all the time, she is one half of the boys size, if that. She would cry pitifully for me if I got out of her sight.
    It was the best thing, I know in my heart, and I love Teri forever for making this possible. FurryDance has absolutely the most adorable Cornish Rexes in the world, too.
    And Coco will always remember what I told her this morning at the airport as we said goodbye.
    Love,
    ML

  13. It's a shame Coco is having to be returned but it's good the Sherwoods put Coco's welfare above their own desire to keep her. We hope she has a good flight and is glad to be back with the family she was accepted in before.

  19. Is there a better feeling in life, though, than knowing that you CAN always come home! Coco is a lucky girl.

  23. No one cat or human should be in a situation where they're terrorized.
    It was wonderful that everyone acted in Coco's best interest.
    We send all of our love to her and we'll offer our prayers she settles back into her home without incident.

  24. Poor Coco, hopefully she had a safe trip and will settle in soon. Things happen for a reason, right?

  25. that's too bad. Moshe has been with me for almost 6 months now. Jake, Maus and Moshe all still have their issues of dominance and space, but they are finally settling in and resigning themselves to the fact that the large, naked, crossed-eye cat is staying. It does take patience...
