I am about to overload your screen with freakishly cute pet photos all snapped within the last two weeks. If the amount of photos I have taken of my pets are any indication of how many I will take of future human dependents, I’m going to need some more storage on le iPhone, knowwhatiamsayin.
I definitely thought we’d still be in hardcore separation mode with the dog and cats only two weeks in, but we can now happily enjoy the same living space most of the time. However, Tory remains extremely interested in all cat behavior, especially when they sit quietly and ignore her. She likes to stick her face in their fur while they hiss and attempt to scratch her eyes out. Swatting her face appears to have little-to-no effect on her, in fact, I’m tempted to believe she actually enjoys it. I have diagnosed her with the typical youngest sister syndrome — she wants to play with her older sisters at all times. The cats have typical oldest sister syndrome in that they want nothing to do with her at all times.
The important thing, though, is that I no longer wake up in the night with nightmares of Tory devouring the cats as a midnight snack. Though, I did have a dream the other night that Casey and I were in the middle of a little kissing sesh and woke up to Tory licking my lips, so ya win some, ya lose some.
That tongue is something special, isn’t it?
“Staying as far away as possible.”
I do still make time for intense cat cuddling so they’re fully aware that this is still their house, and Tory’s just living in it…forever.
But I have also taken to carrying Tory around like a toddler.
And making her homemade snacks.
