Help...4 nights in. Oy Vey!
I have searched and read so many posts looking for answers and got a few but I am losing it. We got a tiny female chl 4 nights ago. The first 2 nights she slept in a soft sided carrier in my teenage sons room. Last night we moved her into a large rectangle plastic tote, no lid. Food on one end pee pad on other. Toys. Last night my son accidentally fell asleep with her in his bed. She either jumped or fell off and was found in her carrier in the morning quiet stressed and shaken up. Tonight I brought her tote box into my room so my son could sleep. She has bared whined cried and yelped for what seems like forever. She got so worked up she pooped really loosely all over. So I took her out to clean her and she was asleep in seconds. She woke up a while later and I took her to potty. Put her back in box after I cleaned it. She started whining crying, etc. So I blew it and picked her up. Set her on the bed and she immediately went to sleep.
So, realistically how long is to long to let them cry? I would think after 20-
30 minutes but this one can keep going.
A friend is going to loan me her dog crate. It's a large one but that should give her plenty of room for her bed, pee pads, blankets and food and water. I am going to put it in the laundry room which is at the other end of the house. Is that a good or bad idea?
Please help. I need to know how long is too long to let do all that? I know this post has to be moderated so there is no one around at 145am to talk to. She doesnt just cry and bark and yelp but she jumps up and down trying to get out. It doesnt look like she can but one never knows so I'm nervous about that too. There are hard wood floors here.
Is all the whining and crying bad for them? I know they stress out a lot and that lowers their blood sugar. I dont want her to get hurt or sick or die.
