I spent most of June in California visiting and caring for my Dad and going to my Godson's graduation. My Dad had minor surgery and scheduled it for the time I would be there. It went well and he is well on the way to complete recovery, though I am sure he would not have minded me staying a few weeks more. I think he got used to the home cooking very quickly. I did spend a day stocking his freezer with meals he can take out and warm up, he definitely appreciates that.
My Dad decided he was ready to have a cat again. The house has been empty this last year, with no cat around. He actually decided to get two kittens, so they would have playmates. The first one is a bit of a wild one, he was abandoned by his mother. His name is Digger, he is quite the excavator in the litter box. About a week later Jack came to us. He was out of a house cat's litter and is the most sweet tempered kitten. We introduced the two to each other by placing them on opposite corners of the bed. They met in the center, sniffed each other out and became fast friends, playmates, fighting foes, and sleeping buddies.
Jack is about a week to 10 days older than Digger, and he is doing a great job of socializing Digger who was a little skittish. Jack has the sweetest face right now, but Digger is going to be a gorgeous cat when he gets bigger. Their eyes are still that cloudy shade between blue and green.
When we returned home to Maryland, our garden flowers were looking great. I wondered how they would fare with us being gone, hubs for 10 days--me for 3 weeks...but they were a welcome sight when we pulled into the drive.
Back to cards in the next posts, thanks for stopping by.
