Random Fridays

We mentioned on Monday that mom was gone last weekend. She took 4 days and spent some time with some friends out west. They had a wonderful time together - sightseeing, shopping, eating and talking.

Rumor has it she may have kissed this cat....

Goldfish has been loose in the house now since Monday. She is doing very well with Chanel. Ivy ignores her and Daiquiri hisses at her - so about normal around here. Mom does think that Daiquiri may be enjoying Chanel getting run over by Goldfish however....something about karma.

Wednesday afternoon something very interesting happened. Mom wasn't feeling good so she stayed home from work. She had noticed a few times that Goldfish seems to like to nap in the chair that mom uses when she is home. was sitting there with a blanket on her lap (it is chilly here) and the next thing she knew, Goldfish jumped up and sat on her lap. Mom didn't even breathe. And then....Goldfish curled up and snoozed. Mom did pet her a few times...very slowly. No idea how long it would have lasted, but a truck in the parking lot made a big noise and Goldfish got startled and took off for a safe space.

And unless you think she is "cured" - mom accidentally cornered her in the kitchen later that day and Goldfish bounced off the cabinets and ran out of the room like she was on fire. Oh is willing to take whatever progress she can get from that kitten. 


  1. I have some at a similar stage. This morning when I woke up one was in the cat tree. I carefully walked over and petted him. He accepted it like it was no big deal. Later, yeah, mad scramble to get away from me.

  2. Oh I know just how you feel. It all takes so much time but it is worth it in the long run. Good luck to you and it sounds like you are making a little progress.

  3. Awww how sweet of Goldfish to climb onto your lap for a nap. I think you should take all the time off work and have lots of lovely lap time. :)

    1. I have to find a way to do that and still get paid :)

  4. Curling up on your mom is great progress! We hope your mom is feeling better!

  5. Great vacation photos! That was nice of Goldfish to cuddle. Hope it happens again!

  6. Your mom kissed a cat from another home? Wow! She owes you guys lots of smooches to make up for that!

  7. I'm sure Goldfish would insist she was sitting on her chair ... not your lap ;)

  8. Goldfish is gonna come around, we just know it!

  9. OUr mom really wishes she could have kissed that cat, coo. And Your mom of course! It would have been nice to see her.

  10. We hope your mom had a good time during her little get away. We hope she didn't kiss another kitty, we guess you can sense it. We are happy Goldfish is coming around and even had lap time with mom. Thanks for the share. Have a great weekend.

  11. Funny Goldfish! We're sure she'll learn that a nap on a lap is a good thing furry soon.

    Our mom bean is furry interested in the photos from the west. What a pretty place!

  12. I smooch every cat I can get my lips on, kitties! LOL! Hope your mom is feeling better, and that Goldfish is going to keep us all guessing!
