Our days as a family of 3 (me, Alan and the cat) are swiftly coming to a close and I think Arya knows something’s up (like something hasn’t been up since before we went to New Zealand). She’s very curious about the new baby’s room, sometimes hunkering under the crib. Other times we’ve found her perched on top of the baby’s bassinet, just calm as you please. She also left a little pee present on the comforter which is never a great sign. I sometimes worry for her, not as much as I did months and months ago when we were first playing with the idea of locking her out at night (she took to that habit really well and now we never have to kick her out; she just leaves). People who have affectionate relationships with their pets know: it’s not just your pet, it’s your baby.
To my little bear: It’s not gonna get any easier for you, but we promise we still love you with all our hearts. 💕
