Day 2: Coco has resorted to the corner of my closet. And guess what? THAT'S PERFECTLY OK!
I think a lot of people take it personally when their newly adopted family member wants nothing to do with them... but think about it: Coco went from being dropped off by her family in a box to a shelter, where she contracted an upper respiratory infection and had to be quarantined until she got better. She was then moved from that room to a busy lobby area, to my car for nearly an hour due to snow, to this home. I could spend my entire night wondering what I did wrong and why she's hiding... but the answer is simple- this process is stressful. They don't know you yet. At all. They see you as their abductor. The trust is not there yet, but we'll get there.
One day at a time.
