So, here comes a small update,… I moved out of my apartment, at least for a while. This is just temporary, I will go back to my apartment. As I mentioned some time ago, my uncle got some health problems, and he felt better after a while, but over the recent weeks he got some bad symptoms, but the doctor said the symptoms will disappear. However, I don’t want to write about it in detail, but he needs help at the moment, which is why I moved to my uncle for a while, together with my cat Shyna. We got our own room in the house.
As you can see in the photo above, we were equipped with some basic stuff for the first days, we’ve been here the second night already. I brought in the cat litter box, and purchased new cat litter, dried food and wet food for the cat. I bought some basic stuff for myself, and brought in some clothes for the first day too. We are well equipped for now.
If you know me, you know how important my PC and internet access is, brought in my own PC and some cable stuff, but my uncle provided a huge screen and the LAN cable to get me online over his router. I demanded a cable, because I hate WLAN, because in case I do play games online, I need a stable and fast connection. His connection is fast as mine, and I really like his large screen, even if I have a large screen too, his screen is bigger.
The desk is improvised, it’s a table from the garden, which is why you see some dirty spots on it that we could not clean well, but that is not a problem for me. Not sure if you noticed it, but you can see my cat on the bed in the one photo, she is now exploring our room. I mentioned her, because the temporary move was a little bit problematic for her and I will tell you why. I have one of those great boxes, where you can put in your cat, for example if you visit the vet, and I believe my cat thought we would go there, when I did put her in.
When we arrived at my uncles house, and when I got my room, I noticed that my cat hid under the bed, she was extremely nervous and I can understand that peds are stressed if something new happens. Not only this, I noticed she injured her nose, although the last two photos are blurry, you can see it in one photo. I assume she did rub her nose on the plastic of the transport during the drive to my uncles home. I hope her nose will be ok soon, but I remember she once did the same when we visited her vet, the nose did heal. On a side note, my cat was under the bed for a very long time, but she starts to get used to the new situation, but I planned a blog post about this, I shot some photos for another post.
So, currently I am not in my home town, I am now basically in the middle of Lübeck and Hamburg, or in other words between both cities. My uncle asked me to stay there for a week, but it might even be longer, it doesn’t matter to me, I could even stay a few more weeks if it’s needed, I will offer help. Over the days we will sometimes drive in the cities to make purchases. Since this was basically a hush hush operation, I forgot that I still had food debris in a cooking pot in my kitchen, but as my mother has a key, I called her by phone to open my apartment and to clean the pot (laugh). That’s the update for now.

Very generous of you and very good for him to have somebody on hand. Shyla will be okay. Just do not push her. Let her adjust according to her own instinct. Give her affection and reassurance that she has not lost YOU. I wish your uncle all the best.
Thanks for the wishes for my uncle, things will get better, it’s just now a little bit difficult. Shyna didn’t eat the first day, the second day she started to eat and explored a few rooms when nobody was there. But when people are in the level of the house where my room is, Shyna goes back under the bed. We assume too that it will take some time. At night she comes to me to the bed to cuddle, but I notice she is still confused about the situation.
It’s so good of you to move in with your uncle to help him out while he’s having health problems. I hope Shyna will adjust quickly and begin to enjoy the adventure.
Thanks Trisha, I hope too that Shyna will get used to the situation, it’s happening slowly, but it will. My uncles kids watched under the bed where Shyna is hiding and tried to get her out, but I told them they should give the cat time, and that a cat will attack if she feels pressed, the kids understood and the cat has now time. Shyna will get used to it over time.
This is so nice to help your uncle. I hope and wish everything to be fine for you all. Love, nia
Thanks a lot Nia
Very kind of you to uproot your life to help your uncle. Not many family members would do that. Good for you!
Thank you, it’s not a big problem for me and I think helping family is important. I might be here for some more weeks, I don’t know yet, but it’s just temporary until he feels better. Good thing is, it’s more rural here, autumn is maybe not the best time to take photos outside, but I have the option here to wander in the nature. I spotted already a marsh, some smaller ponds, a little forest and lots of fields. 🙂
