We have been walking downstairs more these past few weeks. Bujang. Tanaka and even Popps ventured downstairs for a change in scenery. However last Saturday, Popps absolutely refused to wear her harness and I was very puzzled. I tried (probably for much longer than I should) and she struggled and scratched me. Then Bujang actually hit her on her behind and she became very quiet. I was able to put her down gently and all of us rested for a bit. However, the whole of Sunday afternoon, Popps decided to just stay in the kitchen.
Last night, as usual, they had Reiki and conversations with Fern.
Poppy: She said she wanna go for walks or in trolley but doesn't want to go back to her old place anymore.
Fern: She gave me an unsettling/reluctant feeling when telling me this. And she doesn't like to wait to go out as 2nd or 3rd. I told B has to go first as we all show him respect in that sense. She listens and softened.
Bujang: He said he was happy. I asked him if he hit p's bottom. He said yes, no one can hurt you (if he is there) He thanked you for walking him. His back feels fine.
I thought I should only bring Popps out at the end of the week to allow her to calm down for a bit. But I am grateful that Bujang feels the need to protect me and that Popps is fine. She still thinks she should be first in all things but she is learning slowly that inside living is just as complicated as outside living, although much more safe.
