Kindness Journey – Day 157 -Adjusting

Change can be scary, even when the difference is for the better. Our new cat Henry arrived late yesterday afternoon and quickly accepted love and attention. Soon after, he jumped off the bed and found a secluded and quiet place to sleep and adjust to his new home.

I had to resist the temptation to go through every possible hiding place to find Henry. He will emerge whenever he is ready. Trying to force things onto him isn’t fair or kind. Henry will figure out that he is home now, and he won’t have to hide anymore.

Until then, I’ll keep calling him in a calm voice and be ready to love him when he is ready.
