Huggy has been to Pat's house once and it went pretty well. We need to do it more often and try to get the three cats (Huggy, Molly and Peewee) to the point that we can let them get together. That will be the real test. When we tried it I first tried walking Huggy in on her leash and both she and Peewee had a hissy fit when they met. So she went into her pet taxi & was carried into a bedroom to be let out. Pat's two seemed very interested in the door to the room from the outside while Huggy stayed close to it on the inside, so I kind of think they knew they were all there close.
We have been meeting a lot of each other's friends. Today D & J came up from Vashon Island to visit and meet Pat. Last weekend we went to Auburn to pickup my grand daughter, K, and bring her up to spend a few days with us during her mid-winter break from 4th grade. While in Auburn we visited Pat's friends, L & MM who I got to meet. Next Monday my brother, L, will be over from Spokane for a short visit.
I am slowly getting things out of my house. Today J took some of Annie's favorite clothes, things I had wanted her to have as I wanted them to be with someone we know. Annie was a pretty small person and so is J so most of her clothes will fit. Many of the others have already gone to Goodwill. I've been working in the hobby room this past week. It seems to go slowly but I can see some progress. Lots more to go, though.
Don't worry about Huggy and Pat's cats getting acquainted. They'll establish who's boss and be getting along fine in no time. They tend to have more sense about merging families than the people do, for the most part.
Hope you and Pat have a wonderful Sunday, Dick. :-)
I can't believe it's going so fast for you. How exciting.
Good work on the cleaning. I'm glad that you're getting into it more. I know that it's tough, but it's healthy and theraputic, too. I'm horribly sick and stayed home from work today. Big bummer. Much love.
And Iknow its not easy job going through and parting with Annie's personal things. I found it very hard to part with my Als things, but I think its part of the healing process and moving into a new phase in your life. Take care stay safe (((hugs))) to You and Pat.
Dont worry the kitties will have to tolerate each other at least, I have had different kitties that would snarl and hiss and spit the whole time living together but there was never any harm , just different personalities!!!!!!!! they will survive , and sounds like you are having a busy time , good luck with everything , and hope you contiue to blog , Question LOL
who is going to take your pics for your wedding if you are going to be in them HAHA , you take such nice photos , !!
Have a great wedding and enjoy every second
take care Mr and Mrs Mocha!!! and Hugs for Huggy , Peewee and Molly LOL
things are coming right along. I am so happy for you. SOunds like lots of work . Not just planning a wedding but all your house clearing. I was delighted to hear about Huggy. He will settle in just fine.
Combining two fully-equipped households is a tough thing. We were still sorting through duplicates and extra stuff and boxes two years into our household combining. But I guess that's one of those nice problems.
Take care, and have a wonderful weekend ... Meow
Good luck with kitties. I know Huggy is so important to you!
