Back in July 2015, after Lucy and her Fools had all gone to Petsmart and I was about to leave on vacation for three weeks, I brought this girl home from Petsmart.
That was River. She’d been at Petsmart for a while and needed a break from the cage, so I brought her home to keep an eye on Fred while I was gone. She wasted no time in making herself at home.
She was a sweet, sassy girl, but no matter how we tried, Fred and I could NOT trim her claws. She was just not having it!
She stayed with us (well, mostly she stayed with Fred, since I was gone most of the time she was here), and after three weeks, back she went to Petsmart. She was adopted in September, was renamed Carly, and look at this happy girl!
(I’m embedding a video from Facebook – if you can’t see it, you should be able to see it on the Challenger’s House Facebook page, here.)
Not only is Carly now a snuggly lap girl, she’ll also let them trim her claws as long as they sing to her. How sweet is that?
(Thank you so much to Kimberly for allowing us to share that video – I love seeing that happy face!)
This picture cracks me up. He looks like he’s intent on steering that cat tree to shore.
(You’ll please ignore the pile of canvas pictures on the dresser. I took those down two months ago when we were having our stairway painted. I finally got around to hanging them back up… well, yesterday, as a matter of fact. When it comes to things like hanging up pictures, I don’t move fast.)
