Raining Cats And Dogs

Life with cat and dog remains a bit of a three-ring circus.

CC likes to hang out in the family room. She'll play with a rope or another toy while we hang out, but unfortunately her favorite toy is, well, Nala.

Nala likes to sleep on the chair in the family room and refuses to give up territory (probably good). Even though we've made a few cat-only rooms (using hooks to keep the door cracked) the cat will follow the dog around, watching from the other side of the room, until the dog comes over to play, at which point Nala hisses and swats and acts in a quite un-lady-like manner. (We got that cat tree to give Nala more high places to stay, but she just stays in the ground and instigates.)

CC is a little bigger than we planned for a dog - 40 lbs and growing. She can hold a regulation frisbee in her mouth easily, but doesn't really know how to play games with it. We're working on the basics first (stay, down, come, don't torment the cat, even if she started it).

A rare moment of peace in the living room - everybody's sleeping!

It's a cat in a box!
