When I moved, I was worried about wether or not my cat would adjust to his new home. Then there was the concern about him getting lost in the new neighborhood. So, I sequestered him for the first month to adjust to his new surroundings.
Then tentatively, I let him go outside since I makes him so happy. Below are a few shots from this spring when we planted the garden in the back yard. You can see Simba surveying his land like a king. It is almost like he is glowing as he basks in the sun.
I guess you can say he is happy.
