Growing Family

Because it’s not really a blog without random personal information! This past Saturday, my partner and I welcomed two new family members into our household.

Abby, a 4 yo. calico.

Abby is a complete sweetheart. She’s very social, which I didn’t expect from adopting an adult shelter cat. It seems obvious to us that whoever left her at the Humane Society loved her very much. Our guess is that they could no longer afford to care for her and hoped the shelter would be able to find a loving home. We’re so happy to have her with us (even if her diesel-engine purr sometimes wakes me up at night ^_^).

Guinness is…a puppy. Holy cow, such a bundle of energy! His housetraining is coming along pretty well, but it will be a while before he gets the hang of it. Trying to figure out how to keep him from antagonizing the cat is also a bit of a trick. How do you reward a non-behavior? Needs more research! :)
