how Chanel plans to spend the weekend
(though let's be honest, this is how she spends most of her time)
Goldfish had been in the Sleepypod, climbed out, stretched
and then laid down right there and went back to sleep
Thanks for all the positive feedback on our Wednesday post. Thankfully most applications are good, people care for their pets and we can do adoptions smoothly.
To answer some questions about the cat cafe:
1. The tree by the window in the pictures is on a tension rod from the floor to the ceiling.
2. Most that we have heard of charge an entrance fee to cover their costs with anything left over helping the rescues they support. Most of them aren't very expensive - this one was $10 for an hour.
We have gotten some snow and it was BITTER cold for a few days. Sunday night mom was in bed reading and the snow removal people were outside cleaning the condo drives. Goldfish was not very happy that there was banging and noise outside the condo. She was on the bed with mom but jumpy with all the noise. However....mom would call her name or whistle to get her attention after a bang and Goldfish would settle back down and let mom pet her. This went on for about 30 minutes - until there was a REALLY big bang and Goldfish ran out looking for a better hiding place. But still - mom was very proud of her being brave.
Speaking of Goldfish, taking a page from Daiquiri, she taught herself to play fetch. She will bring mom a mylar ball to throw sometimes. Mom is allowed to sit up in bed but not go too far. Of course the girl would also pick the toy that doesn't fly very well. But mom got thinking last night - she wonders if cats think the fetch thing is weird? They bring people their toy having killed it, and those weird people throw it far away and the cat has to bring it back AGAIN!! haha
*interestingly enough, a cat behavior expert answered a very similar question this week over at The Conscious Cat
