NOT easy!

Starla writes:

The people who WERE my people were fighting. I could hear their voices, and jumped up into the window to see if they were coming to get me. I couldn't see them, but I could still hear them. My new mommy and daddy looked out the front windows, and they could see the people. Then the people quieted down and went back into the house next door and the one next to that. Mommy and Daddy picked me out of the window, where I was cowering, and petted me and told me that I was safe here with them. They said the other people whose voices I knew would not hurt me any more, and that I am loved and cared for and safe here. I calmed down and sat with Mommy and Daddy.

Then, a few hours later, we all heard a loud sound and then my former man person shouted and cried, "Oh my God, oh my God, no!" He repeated that, went out to a white van, then the van pulled away and the man went into the house, still crying and shouting. Daddy called 911, and while he was on the phone Mommy watched through the window. A lady came out of the house and went over to my old house, and went inside there. I was very scared, and jumped up in our window, which is in the opposite direction. Daddy told the 911 operator what we'd just seen and heard.

The police came and drove past. Two police cars. They didn't go up to the house next door or my former house, and didn't come here to ask Mommy or Daddy any questions. Mommy and Daddy wonder why they didn't at least go up to the neighbors' doors and knock to find out what happened.

Mommy and Daddy brought me down from the window again and petted me to calm me down. Mommy took me in to the bathroom to see if I needed to go potty. I didn't need to, but I needed my ears cleaned, so I scratched them then looked at her. She cleaned my ears, and then opened the door again so I could go back out. She picked me up so I didn't need to "run the gauntlet" of the other kitties, because I'm still kind of scared of them. They chase me still.

Rori came up on the couch to see if I was alright, and she and I touched noses. She also came to check on me throughout the loud shouting and everything next door. She wanted to be sure I was alright. Mommy and Daddy told her she was being a very good big kitty for doing that. I settled down again, and snuggled right up against Mommy on the couch while she and Daddy petted me. I lay with them for about an hour, until Skylar tried to sit on my head! He was trying to sit on Mommy's lap, but he didn't know where his seat was going to end up! So I jumped down and lay down on my basket. It didn't really bother me, because I knew he didn't do it on purpose.
