Was wondering how you and kPittens were doing and hoping for a good update, and this is a good update!👌
Not sure what the deal is about her just trying to stay upstairs. But she seems happy and content and pain-free and that’s all that matters.
Just curious, has anything at all changed downstairs or out on the patio? I don’t know, maybe new furniture or rearranging furniture or new smells? Any new electronics that could be putting off some sort of magnetic field or some sort of crap like that? Just throwing everything out there and seeing if it makes sense.
Again, we are all just so thrilled to hear how well pittance is doing. Good job

Hi Sumi and Pittens!
I have also been wondering how you were doing. I was just about to post that, lol. How is Pittens getting along with the other kitty? I was wondering if that was the reason she is wanting to stay upstairs.
She may have just decided she really enjoys her peaceful haven upstairs. The way you set the room up for her, if I was a cat I would probably want to stay there too!!
Glad all is well, sending you hugs and ear rubs to Pittens

Yay Pittens! How neat that she is doing so well and enjoying life again. She has the heart and soul of a much younger kitty!
If nothing’s changed about downstairs, well, I wouldn’t worry too much at this point unless she begins to show pain signals . That could indicate that the stairs are challenging for her body and she’s just reluctant to tackle them as often as she did before. Good for you on adding stair treads!

Pittens is doing so well!
I seem to recall you moved to this new home shortly before Pittens surgery. If that is correct perhaps Pittens didn’t have time to establish “her” space downstairs and sees her space as upstairs.
Mona has always changed her sleeping and eating places and she has trained me to go with the flow.
