#151 All change

"You just keep getting more and more irresistable" I thought to myself as I walked past the dining room mirror. It was a usual Saturday morning and my housemate Marc, who had become, for some reason, my only housemate, was out at a parkrun. I've never met a park and I don't know how he makes them run. He must be very scary. Most of the time, I'm just pretending to listen so that he'll give me food.

At some point later in the morning, once Marc was back, there came a knock at the door. You'll never guess who had the cheek to show up. It was RICH! I couldn't believe it. Rich. He obviously missed me a lot and had come to say hello but I wondered why. He doesn't often visit me.

I'd known for a while that some kind of change was coming. There'd been a lot of movements and rearrangements in the house. Dan had got me some treats, before he mysteriously left. Marc had been spending more time in the lounge. The girls had also vanished and taken all of their furniture. I hoped Marc wouldn't leave too.

Rich picked up the cat carrier and brought it into the kitchen. I darted. I hate that thing. It used to be quite fun to climb into but the last time I was in there, they took me to some dude in a white coat. It was all very embarrassing. I didn't want to go in the carrier but Rich picked me up and put me in it. He waved goodbye and then Marc put me into his car.

I've been in moving vehicles before and it's not the scariest thing in the world but it is pretty much almost the scariest. You have no idea where you're going or how long the journey will take. Imagine how that must feel.

Marc and Dan were chatting fairly casually. I meowed a lot to tell them I was apprehensive. Dan poked his fingers through the cage sometimes and talked at me. It didn't seem like the world was coming to end but I was still very nervous. I threw up in the cat carrier and had to sit beside it.

After a short while, we arrived somewhere new. They brought me inside and let me out. Two older people and a girl. It smelled like they had another animal. I walked out of the cage and said a brief hello to the people. Why was I here? I walked around, smelling things. I like having an explore. It was all very new and strange.

Dan stuck around for a while and the older people fed him. Dan usually feeds himself, or gets a man to bring him food to the house. They fed the girl and me too. They must have a lot of food.

I went to the window and saw there was a dog outside. I stared hard and gave a sharp hiss. The older woman heard it but didn't sound too concerned. When Dan had finished eating, the girl ushered him into her car. She started the engine and I heard the sound of the car driving away. I went back to my exploring.

Yay! Hope this is a happy ending for Keira! (Despite the dog!)
