There are Men in My Drawers!

:-) OK, maybe you guessed the first one! Yes, the cabinets are finally out of the living room and assembled in the soon-to-be kitchen. My wonderful Gary (OK, technically Rox's wonderful Gary, but he's in my drawers, here!) is making terrific progress. The cabinets in the island have 4 deep drawers for pots and pans rather than shelves. Next step, floors and counter tops!

But I bet you weren't expecting this second man... in my bedroom drawer! Do you recognize him? It's Marley... the handsome gent I visited back in March when his mom had to go on a trip! Well, she's got back to back trips so we're trying him visiting me instead!

Marley spent the first two days and nights in my room so everyone could have their fill of sniffs and get used to the idea that we had company. Yesterday, we had full integration and everything went fine. Some hisses, to be sure - mostly from Marley, actually - I think my guys are getting used to changes. The hissing had stopped by bed time so I tried letting them all be together overnight. No problems. They all spent the day together and Gary reported all calm on the kitteh front. Same tonight. Whew!

Marley will go home this coming Saturday, but he'll be back the following week for another week's stay. And guess who else will be here then? Kayla and Zimmer!! For three weeks!! Hey, maybe we should rename this place La Posada Space Paws! ;-)

Peggy Sue leaves for her new home on Friday so I'm going to try to get some alone time with her tonight and tomorrow. *Sniff* I'm so happy but, boy, am I going to miss my delicate little lady!


  1. What a handsome lad that Marley is! I love that cats can come and stay with you, much like my parents and I catsit for each other these days. I love having Bella and Duchess come to stay.

  2. Goodness, the kitties certainly are coming and going from your house. That would not work in our house, but sounds like it works out for you.

  3. Although I'm sure Gary is wonderful and ever so lovely, I'm very sorry but for me Marley is the Drawer Gent winner here! LOL!!

    Marley's got a sweet little face and those eyes - awwww!!

    Big hugs to Miss Peggy Sue Maples. Me and Charlie are so happy she's found a forever home but we know how sad it is for you. We hope you have a wonderful alone time with her tonight.

    Take care

  4. We're happy to hear that everything is going smoothly! Marley is very handsome.

  5. It's good to have an experienced man in your drawers...errr...working on your kitchen drawers that is! Your cabinets are looking wonderful!

    And Marley is one cute kitty! I'm glad the kitties are all getting along!

    Have a Happy Thursday!
    xo Catherine

  6. Your kitchen is going to be great!

    Marley looks very relaxed. It sounds like some very busy times ahead at your house.

  7. Your kitchen is going to be stunning when it's all done. And HIYA Marley! Sorry your going to miss Paggy Sue.

  8. MOL...cute post.....mama says she needs to check her drawers!!!!!!!!

    We are happy that Marley has adjusted so should be much easier the following week when he comes back.......he is mighty handsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    YAY for Peggy Sue finding a good forever home. Purrs and hugs to you as you miss her.


  9. That Marley is such a looker! Yep, Peggy Sue sure is special and you will miss that friend fur sure, but you've filled her heart with love!

  10. Marley! It's good to see him again! He's a very handsome gentleman.
    (Lisa, it's such a shame that you can't catsit RD, I'm sure the two of you would get along!)
    Happy t(r)ails to beautiful Peggy Sue!

  11. He loved getting into drawers! Thank you so much for being a part of his life and making it wonderful while I was away. His memory will forever be linked to your pages and I'm very grateful for all that you have done and continue to do.

    1. ((((Amber)))) He'll live in our hearts forever!
