Walked into the kitchen and was unaware that Gabe had called a meeting. He’s really finding his way.
It’s not a great picture, because of low light and cell phone camera. Gabe is so enamored of Bixby. He sits at the patio door and can’t understand why he can’t join him outside. I find him snuggled next to him.
Besides that, Gabe is doing great. Today he joined me as official OFFICE CAT and hung out while I worked. And at one point tonight, he sat with all of us on the couch and snuggled down in my lap.
Scout is really doing her best not to scare him, she’s caught on that if she wants to spend time with the new kitty, she has to approach him carefully and with a little less of her normal enthusiasm.
Everyone is adjusting. Gabe is fitting right in.
Scout is a year old today. Here’s her one week photo:
And her official 8-week photo when she came to live with us: Continue reading
I was in the kitchen cooking and when I stepped into the living room, Gabe was snuggled in between Bixby’s big ole paws, both sleeping. I was about to snap a picture when Scout came bounding in and disturbed the tableau.
Here is Gabe sitting next to the patio door wanting to join Bixby outside. He even went to the back door – which luckily I saw him because it tends to be only partially closed so the dogs can let themselves in and out (at least until I replace the damaged screen door). I pulled it shut tight and got a plaintive mew from the little guy.
Speaking of photos, totally forgot to get some of the stew prep in the Multi-pot. So also bummed about that.
Tonight’s menu is: Beef Stew, fresh bread, salad and chocolate chip cookies. I’ll have photos and recipe links tonight or tomorrow.
Cool Gabe is making lots of progress. He’s now wandering the entire house and has joined us on the couch. As long as Scout isn’t too rowdy, he’s happy to spend time with the dogs. He and Bixby are everything right now. Gabe just loves him. I believe he Continue reading
I used the second batch of the dough I made the other day for hamburger rolls. I like them large and flat, because I make my burgers really flat and don’t like them overwhelmed by bread. These rolls were delicious.
I’ve put together another batch of dough for tomorrow. Friends are coming to dinner and I’m making Bourbon Beef Stew and fresh bread. I’m going to use the Multi-Pot. My plan is to pressure cook it early in the day and let it sit in the slow-cooker function for the remainder of the day.
Hopefully, I’ll remember to take photos.
And guess who has her first birthday tomorrow??? Pictures for sure of the birthday girl.
Last night I put all the cat stuff back where it belongs, showed Gabe where the litterbox really is and let him roam the night. About 3 am, I woke to a heaviness on my chest – it was Gabe, all snuggled down.
