Last Saturday, we had to overhaul our air-conditioning unit for the whole flat. The repairmen made a lot of noise and there was much chaos in the house. The only kitty who enjoyed the whole experience was Tanaka who watched everything and everyone and who later slept through the whole ordeal of noise as he was safely in Akira's night cage. It was not such a pleasant experience for a retiring kitty like Akira and she did not eat her dinner later that night. The next day, Sunday, she asked to be out early but spent much of the day hiding under grandma's bed and under the washing machine. She meowed the whole day but refused to sit with me or anyone else. She was really upset. So I had to get Fern to tell her not to sit under the bed and that sitting under the washing machine was dangerous.
Fern: I told her what you told me and sent Reiki to her. She was screaming (in her head) saying she didn't like anything like that in her room. She said "don't come in my room again (to the workers)". So I told her the work is done and they won't come back. She was calm in the end.
And later that Sunday night, she began to walk about the house, her usual self. Yesterday she was calm and of course 'groomed' as usual but she did not go hiding under beds or the washing machine. PHEW!
