Making Progress

As you can see, a bit of progress has been made in the Roy/Smokey area. Don't get too excited though...they still spend the majority of their time wrestling and yowling. This was the first time, however, that Smokey attempted laying on the sofa at the same time as Roy. Baby steps, kitties, baby steps.

I have finally started letting Smokey outside this week. The boys are not happy about this at all, especially Griffin. He is afraid she will leave and won't come back. So far she hasn't even attempted to leave the yard. She does love it out there, though, and I am happy to report that she zeroed in on the pesky Squirrel Brothers in the blue spruce almost immediately. I hope they are shaking in their nasty little squirrel boots.

As for Riley, I don't know if he is experiencing a second wind, or if the old boy is just excited for Christmas. He has always loved a good squeak toy, and has quite a collection of them, but he stopped playing with his toys all together, a few months ago. However, for the past few days, he has been back to digging through his toy box and dragging out random toys throughout the day. It has been good to see him doing that again.

Very sweet to see them "almost" friends! Don't you just love that stretched-out pose that pets always seem to love?! Tiddles, my cat. does this and gives me that "I'm exhausted, don't bother me, except if you have more food for me…" look! Hopefully Griffin will feel much better when he realizes that Smokey does keep coming home! I think it's obvious that she knows a good thing when she sees it!

Looks like things are working out slowly but surely...when we brought little Java Bean home it was several months before the tension eased between him and the head dog Buddy! Now they tolerate each other so I am happy with that. I am so happy to hear that the dog is playing more! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
