Weekends


Ah, another weekend and guess what -  I did not rescue another kitten, phew!  I am nearly getting used to the idea that we have a kitten and I have nearly struck some sort of rhythm to my days without going nuts from my self imposed anxiety stress.

Frodo is doing really well.  He might just be on board one day within the year.  I'd like to think so. 


I've learned to have a kitten station, let's face it, it's my knitting station that supports kitten care.  I try to hold her and play with her several times a day.  In the evenings, my husband has her loose in a confined area of the living room for her play time while Frodo is upstairs with me in the bedroom.  Everyone is settling into a routine.

My favorite thing so far is when she is on my lap purring and she stares deeply into my eyes.  I'm guessing she is saying 'thank you'.  I stare back and say 'you are one VERY lucky cat'.  We agree.


Today, my friends came over for our Christmas exchange, lots of talking and eating and laughing.  Who could ask for more?


I moved Holly into the front room on Friday, only to see her so very very sad about that (hiding behind her cardboard box) so I moved her back to the dining room.  She also doesn't like a real cat bed.  She wants that cardboard box with one towel, not two. 


 After only one week, we have two pets on the same loveseat.  Who knows what will be in the future?  I am going to pull this photo up every single time I fret.  Positive reinforcement.  Positive affirmations.  My husband says I worry too much and you know what?  He is right.


How was your weekend?

  1. Hi Karen, it warms my heart to see you with your two little ones. Frodo is such a cute dog and Holly looks so happy and snug. I do hope that she continues to do well in her recovery. My dear Lilly, who is 12 years old, became very ill a couple of weeks ago. It was the first time ever she has been ill. Luckily, after a trip to the vet and medicines for a week, she recovered quickly. Pets are really a part of our family and I think they know that too! Hugs to you and your little creatures and I hope you have a blessed week. Pat xx

  2. I just can't get over how much Holly looks like our Kola. Kola loves to sit on my lap while I knit. She purrs for a few minutes and then goes to sleep. I think she and Frodo are adjusting quite well.

  3. Arrangements about who is where, supervised or not, what can they can get into, and possible sibling rivalry sound almost as complicated as having young children, but very worthwhile. Just look at your progress in only a week's time! Sending good wishes for continued progress and hopefully you can relax a bit as Holly and Frodo continue to get used to each other.

  4. I am so glad that all is going well with little Holly and Frodo is getting used to her being there. They will be playing together one day when Holly gets bigger and stronger. That will be cute to see. Glad you also had a fun time meeting up with some friends, those gift exchanges sound like a great time!

  5. You are ON TOP of this kitten acclamation. You go on that. I showed the husband last night Frodo and told him his name; he cracked a smile.

  6. Holly is supervised right now, but, seeing your gifts, I will offer a word of warning about curly ribbon, which my cats love, and which you will love less if you have to pull it out of either end of them.

  8. Looks like they're getting along nicely already, though Frodo still looks a bit puzzled about that "thing" in your lap ;-)
    Cats usually don't like the beds made for them. Ours love boxes. Just plain boxes, without bedding.
    Our weekend was quiet. Just what we needed.

  9. So lovely seeing your two fur babies together. In a couple months you all (Frodo too), will not know what life was without Holly. What a wonderful Christmas gift. Cats are too funny with their preference for cardboard beds.

  10. Your hard work to get Frodo and Holly together is paying off!! Your hard work at staying calm and anxious free is also paying off. You may worry too much, but soon all this will be a memory and you'll be able to laugh.

  11. What a remarkable amount of progress has been made in only one week. As Holly gets bigger, stronger and more comfortable in her surroundings, she and Frodo will work out their co-existence. So wonderful that you and your husband have opened your home to Holly.

  20. We are very similar . You know what? Cats adapt. They are excellent at adaptation.

  21. That is a great picture of you, Holly and Frodo (don't tell Frodo I named him last - lol). They are adjusting...as you all are. Enjoy!!
