Readers may wonder how things turned out on Friday, when I gave Auric the freedom of the apartment while I was gone. Despite what Hector may have implied in the latest story from the sanitarium, things went well. They were, in fact, rather anti-climactic: when I came home, I saw Auric through the open door of the bedroom; he had been sleeping on the bed, just as I have found him when I returned home every day of his confinement.
Though the Golden Boy still annoys Renn, Hector, for his part, still annoys Neville. These behaviours will likely continue but not be serious. On the other hand, I have watched the two youngsters play, and they obviously enjoy a good tussle and chase. Hector squeaks and squeals sometimes, but it means little. If a cat jumps back into the fray after escaping from it, he’s having fun. For the first time in fourteen and a half years, two of my cats are playmates.
This leaves just the library sealed off, for Minuet’s convenience. She knows there are other cats here, and has seen them all by now. She doesn’t like the idea, but she has come out of the library under my supervision, wandering about. Whether Madame will reconcile herself to living with my lot, I don’t know. That’s our next challenge.
I'm so glad to hear that things went well on Friday when Auric spent an unsupervised day with the other cats. He and Hector had a great time playing, which is important for young cats, and it seems that Neville and Renn were able to avoid being annoyed by the youngsters. Meanwhile, I'm sure in time Minuet will adjust to living with the "boys".ReplyDelete
Well it was good news that when you got home from work the two young ones have not torn each other a part or that cozy apartment. I do hope Minuet has no real issues with the boys as time goes on.ReplyDelete
She seems to be using the box and has become used to the Cozy Apartment. I am grateful for that for both of you. At her age, she will likely wish to retire from the fray permanently. She may however, grant audiences from time to time to supplicants if the need arises. Renn may be the first to ask her advice on young "baybe" Auric. (he is, you know).ReplyDelete
I'm glad things went well with Auric! Minuet will settle in as suits her, we like Katie's comment about granting audiences to her supplicants. :-)ReplyDelete
Good news to hear all went well with Auric and the rest of the crew. Hopefully Minuet's stress level is evening out and she too will find her place amongst the crew.ReplyDelete
Happy Valentine's Day, and hugs and purrs.ReplyDelete
Minute apparently enjoys her retirement suite, and she's earned it.
I'll bet those two playmates are pretty entertaining!ReplyDelete
They are that.Delete
minuet boys are such boys and will always be such boys so let them just be boys and enjoy your personal room of cozy and comfort and anytime you want to shop online for handbags and such just send me a text and I'll tell you where you can get great deals in the states that ship up north and won't ask why you're using your dads charge card with hugs from dai$y =^..*= ♥♥ReplyDelete
I am glad everything went well. It is good that Hector and Auric have each other to play with.ReplyDelete
It's occurred to me that you have quite a varied cat society right now: from the Grande Dame Minuet to the two rambunctious young 'uns.ReplyDelete
Yes, three generations, really.Delete
So good to hear things are going well and fun is happening ;)ReplyDelete
Good times at the apartment. We are glad that after all of your deoarting friends, you still have opened your doors to your new fosters.ReplyDelete
I am glad things are moving along smoothly! Cats always seem to find a way!ReplyDelete
So happy that things seem to be working out. How nice that Auric and Hec are play pals now. :)ReplyDelete
