How did the cookies turn out?
It is! It's needed doing for awhile now. They say they can start late March, which is great.
Yay! The nice man is here to measure the kitchen for the remodeling! We've getting new cabinet doors and drawerfronts, new floor, brand new island. And a mudroom in back of it will be turned into a walk-in pantry with stacked washer drawer. Really looking forward to the finished product. Less keen about the uproar and being dug up, but can't have one without the other.
Well, the segregation didn't last long, a little over 24hr before Minmin slithered out when I was leaving after filling their water dish. Both fosters are prowling the house and Thumper doesn't know. Yet.
The idea is to keep them separated the whole time, but very likely at some point someone will slither into or out of the bedroom. At that point I figure I'll open the door and let them mingle. I know there'll be a fuss while they get used to each other. Just hope there's no murders.
I wonder if the big tabby is a Maine Coon, or partly. Really an enormous cat.
The older one is amazing, jumps up onto the bed no trouble. They're both very affectionate, lots of purring and bumping and drooling.
Their parents have just recently moved to the area and are house-hunting. It will take them awhile, there's nothing in the area either to rent or to buy unless you have $3500 for a two-bed apartment. I signed up with an organisation that facilitates people leaving their pets with foster homes while they are in hospital, or looking for housing, things like that. Saves them having to surrender their animals to the humane society and never getting them back, ugh, awful.
I have two foster cats! They just arrived this morning and are settling in nicely. A huge tabby, Squito, who is 18 years old but doesn't look it at all, and lovely black Minmin, who is 8. They are in their own room, a spare bedroom, with a cat condo and all their stuff. Thumper, my own cat, is fascinated.
Nice washable surfaces for when someone slips on the non-railing-having stairs and brains themself.
