I did get a short nap yesterday afternoon and took off for Dagan and Leah's. :)
Sammy is an energetic character--up and down off their cat house and tower. This is his favorite toy--whether stuck into the cat house, automated by human hand, tossed across the room, or lying innocently on the floor--hehe!
He's still a little skittish, but will decide to come up now and again for a pet--even came up to me twice. :) I may be winning him over by playing with him--hehe! :) He has started coming up to lay on the couch with them when Dagan and Leah are there watching TV.
Annie, on the other hand, is still very shy yet about being touched. She comes and goes with a whisper. But she is spending a fair amount of time in the vicinity of the humans--hehe! Enjoys watching them more and more, I think. If I even stood up, she was on a flight of stairs, tho. So I gave Dagan my camera to get this shot. He was sitting on the couch and Annie came up and was right under the coffee table next to him.
So--they are adjusting well and Annie doesn't even look nervous at all if you ignore her--hehe! Was nice to meet them!! :):)
After dinner, Leah and I kept plugging away on the interview for www.examiner.com. We work slowly--and we know that. (Hence postponing Sacred Circle.) We chat and can get side tracked very easily in the Internet...well, any which way--hehe! I talk too much, I know. (Karma may indeed be a "talker", but humans are so much more interesting--sorry, Karma.) We finally finished and sent off the interview email. The reporter will probably only use a quarter of it, but we answered everything and liked what we sent. It was really a Leah and Rita team effort. :)
I finally drug myself home at 12:20am--with a present for Miss Karma from Sammy and Annie! (They still have three beds--both have their favorites.)
She really gave it a good smell and seemed a little nervous about it. Other cat smells, you know. She's never had a cat bed and didn't have a clue what to do with it. To get her to step into it I decided to toss all her favorite toys in there--hehe! Not that she plays with her toys as often as she did when she was little, but she does lay all over them when she drags them out, anyways, right? I thought maybe she'd like to lay on a bunch of them at once--ROFL! But she laid outside of it and kneaded the side of the cat bed. She did take some toys out, tho. Even if she never actually lays in it, it would make a nicer toy box than the little cardboard box I was using. She didn't seem to want to pull much out of the cardboard box and couldn't see everything like she can in the cat bed. Thanks Sammy and Annie! :)
I only slept a little over three hours (and was up twice) and then couldn't get back to sleep. I'll try to catch a few Zs later on again. Dagan and Leah are coming over after work--unless I can't handle it and tell them not to, of course. But I'd rather get things done and just collapse afterwards for a couple of days, you know? I'll survive, right? And be happier that things got done. So I hope Dagan can do the desk computer reformatting and we can move the bookcase tonight--tada! That would be awesome! :):)
Meanwhile...we may actually finally hit 50 today! I don't think we have? I could have missed it on one of those upper 40s days. Anyways, only 24 degrees right now, but 50 would be nice! The river is on the receding side of the flood crest now--tada! The National Guard is still here to help with the breeches in the dikes. Just minor ones so far--thank goodness! Everyone will be so relieved when the river gets below the sandbag levels. Soon! Soon! :)
The sun is shining! A beautiful day awaits! :):)
