Friday, I moved Cinnaspin and Linzer’s favorite toys and beds into the foster room, and then moved Lilly and Lincoln into the office. This gives Lincoln and Lilly much more room to run around (and a cat tree in the window!), and judging by the noises I hear at 3 am, they are enjoying it quite a bit.
Cinnaspin, especially, is annoyed by the fact that she can’t go into my office, but after a day of sulking she decided to forgive me. (Lincoln and Lilly haven’t been with us 2 weeks yet, so there’ll be no intermingling between them and the others, just to be safe.)
The Cookie girls – snowshoe Linzer & torbie Cinnaspin – and Los Gatos Hermanos – house panther Francesca & black and white tuxie Nacho – are working on being friends. Or at least coexisting. It’s going pretty well!
Cinnaspin was startled by a sound out in the hallway, turned to see what it was, and was surprised by a beautiful torbie in the mirror. So she hissed, of course. And that darn torbie in the mirror hissed back! The nerve.
Honorary permanent resident Trixie (who belongs to a neighbor, but spends most of her time on our front porch) is showing that banana who the boss is, while Linzer and Cinnaspin try to figure out who she is and where she came from.
Lilly (front) and Lincoln have been moved out of the bathroom and into my office, which gives them quite a bit more space to race around. Judging by the racing, jumping and batting-at-toys noises I heard at 3 am, they’re definitely enjoying having more room!
Nacho (black & white tuxie), Francesca (all-black), Linzer (snowshoe, on the stairs) and Cinnaspin (torbie, on the stairs) are big, big fans of Da Bird, and though they’re kind of nervous about Trixie (the calico and white), they’ll still come and play! (Newt likes to supervise)
