I try very hard to make the bed while all the animals are having breakfast. Because if I get slowed down for any reason, the cats take over the bed and object loudly if I try and make it.
And as far as Emma is concerned, the look says it all: This bed will not be made.
At 16, what Emma wants, Emma gets.
I looked outside and this is what I found. I believe he’s annoyed that the squirrels hang out in the duck yard. No Squirrels Shall Pass.
Trying to get some work done today. It’s almost 60 degrees outside, so the patio door is open. That just leads to this:
We are going to start a dedicated Youtube channel for the ducks. Just waiting for my GoPro to arrive. Because they HATE cameras and my only chance of catching their antics is via stealth.
This is Gabe’s favorite spot this year. And how he gets there is adorable. He’ll come into the livingroom, crouch and do the butt wiggle, and then charge full speed to the tree. Then he snuggles down.
Santa’s Danedeer may make an appearance later today. Until then…
Gabe was sprung from the Larimer County Humane Society a year ago today. Here he is enjoying is favorite summer spot. Today there is too much ice on the patio for the kitties to venture out.
Glad you’re part of the family, sweet thing.
I came out of the office to this. I’m thinking either Gabe is planning a coup and enlisting the pups, or this is the quarterly staff meeting and my review is not going well. #notreatsforyou
How are you spending your last day of summer?

Last time I updated you on Gabe, I think I was still wondering if he was happy here. He’s erased all doubts about that. One day it was like a switch flipped, and he just relaxed into living here. He snuggles when he needs attention, sleeps on my feet at night, spends time outside and comes back when I call him, accepts the ducks as just part of the general craziness here and seems genuinely happy. Oh, and he very often sleeps on top of one of the dogs. Just ’cause.
He has put on a few pounds. But we don’t talk about that here. I’m sure it had a lot to do with being put on such a restrictive diet at the shelter to heal up his UTI. And the stress of the whole upheaval in his life. As recommended by Way of Cats (and friend), I’ve moved the cats to a mostly wet food diet. He may un-chonk. He may not. He’s still a handsome devil.
Scout is adorable as always.
