We were making great progress until a couple of days ago. Now we are in a holding pattern, waiting for some high seas and winds to calm down. It’s frustrating, but we are at the mercy of the weather. At least we got stuck near Jack’s aunt and uncle in Edison, NJ, which is where we are today. And looks like we will be for another few days. Unfortunately, when I packed to come here, I really only brought enough stuff to do for a day or so. It didn’t seem to make sense to shlep the sewing machine and all the stuff with us. And there was a pretty intense thunderstorm last night, I was glad to be in a house.
Shuki has been doing well. Before we set out, we had a few days of getting organized and fixing things on the boat. I decided to see how long it would take him to pee onboard, while we were still near his vet. He went 35 hours before he finally gave in and used the fake grass tray I had prepared! I was calling the vet every several hours, she said he would eventually go. whew. and he hasn’t been prepared to use the tray since.
When we arrived at Jack’s aunt and uncle’s place, and thankfully they love him, he went wild: running like crazy from room to room: Space! I think he only tolerates the boat because he’s with us, but prefers land. Poor thing, what we subject him to!
