Did something really radical... I've been luxuriating in just being with them. Playing, napping, petting while they relaxed on my lap and I read. Did I mention napping? No running around looking for the flashy box. In other words, really taking a vacation! And, as you may have noticed, I mostly "unplugged," too.
We've got 9 right now... my 4, 3 fosters and 2 for summer camp. Kayla and Zimmer (Aggie & Percy) got the run of the new kitchen/dinning area after Marley went home last Saturday. And they joined the General Population on Tuesday... absolutely no integration problems. I suspect the GP got comfortable with them through the glass.
Kayla immediately took over the computer desk.
Does she look like she's at home or what? Do you think she remembers her days here as Aggie? Probably not, but I'm glad they relaxed in so easily.
As I mentioned, there was a lot of napping going on. Here's a blind shot during one nap with the cell. Trudy is a cuddler extraordinarie! The cuddle trust of the little ones always swells my heart.
Trudy really wants to cuddle with the big cats. As yet none, including Winnie (who does do some mothering), will snuggle down to sleep with them. She is eternally hopeful, however. Percy was relaxing on the table and Trudy jumped up. Pretty soon I could see she was moving closer and closer.
Here you can see her edging just a little closer (it was dim and I didn't want to miss this so sorry about dark pics). The two stayed like this for quite a little while.
That's construction material from the renovation behind them, by the way. The guys have really liked the old table I'm using as a credenza, while we're in progress, and absolutely hated it when the plywood went behind it, cutting off easy access to the staircase and their ability to cavort between the rails!
It's been the hottest week of the year, so far, here in B'more (leave it to me to pick a sweltering week for vacation). There's no central air so we've largely been taking it easy at the Casa. Hmmmm... maybe there's a benefit to living without all of the modern conveniences - it really has been a lazy summer week!
