Yes, and it's been really bad. Adopting 3 adult strays from the streets with a 6-month difference between the adoptions is extremely hard, especially while taking care of a 20+ strays' colony at the same time. Lots of problems and some very challenging situations. I never ONCE lost my temper, spoke an annoyed word to them or got discouraged in 2 years.
But the computer chair issue broke me. I was shocked to see that I'm absolutely unable to gather the strength of character to take the chair back from her. And on top of that, because I'm autistic, I become depressed if I don't have free access to my computer chair, which is my safe spot in the world. I'm not able to think clearly, concentrate on things, plan or perform daily tasks.
A couple days ago it got so bad I sprinkled her with a few drops of water and she indeed jumped off the chair.
I feel so bad about it. I never thought I'd sprinkle a cat with water one day. I keep seeing it as they already had enough suffering in their lives in the streets, how can I do this to her. So I pamper them without boundaries. And though I don't understand why, former strays have a strange fascination with the computer chair, it gives them the reassurance they crave.
