Buddy & Spike, Entry for August 26, 2008
August 26, 2008 AM- When I arrived today, Spike met me at the door and she gave me a tour of the first floor. I sat down in the kitchen area and she rubbed my leg and I spent some time giving her scratchies. Next on my agenda was to try to meet Buddy. As I was scooping the litter pans in the 2nd floor linen closet, he appeared in the hall from the master bedroom area. I stopped scooping and sat down in the hall and beckoned him and he very tentatively made his way over to me. He sniffed my outstretched hand and allowed me to scratch him under the chin. As he pushed into my hand, I laid back on one elbow and he spent some time walking in figure eights allowing me to give him scratchies all over. After awhile, I finished my scooping, refreshed the water bowl on the tub, topped off the food bowl and Buddy led me back down the stairs to the kitchen area. I finished my chores and the three of us settled in for some play. Buddy was lounging on the island and he enjoyed the cat dancer, a toy that I usually carry and we also had some fun with the wand that chirps like a bird. Spike broke off and gave me a tour of the basement where we had a little laser play. It was a good first visit.
Tuesday August 26, 2008 PM- Spike met me at the door again and escorted me to the kitchen. Buddy joined us and I prepared their 1/2 can of wet food. After a little munch Buddy and I went to the 2nd floor to survey the litter pans and eating area. Buddy got more scratchies in the privacy of his second floor retreat. We returned to the kitchen area for some play with the cat dancer and the chirping wand. Spike was finishing up her food. Buddy accepted more scratchies and a little brushing on the island and Spike chased the laser for a while.
