Soli mainly, and Mussy a bit, have been encouraged to lay, or sit, on my dining table. Had to put a stop to that. Luckily, I had already established methods of "get off the table" signals with the cats. Dgs got the message and now signals them also.
Recently Mussy has comes out in the rest of the house, even my bedroom occasionally. That was a surprise. She took to the dining table as well. She lies on the table in the sunlight through the AC window.
This may require a new piece of furniture.... it is the only window where that happens until I buy the awnings. I think a skinny shelf unit by the front window may work. The sunlight is indirect due to the porch roof. I will be checking out thrift stores, etc. for something suitable.
I won't be making any changes to the food anyone gets. Right now they are all doing great. I do need to buy wild bird seed for the feeders. Plus some new feeders for the yard.
My squirrels are both back. I am thinking the one that was killed was from the woods across the street.
The racoon has not appeared so my trash system seems to be working. But the mice are another matter altogether. Need to find a mouse-proofing system.
I am knocking on wood that status quo stays the same for 2019.
Big on list is everyone to the vet for vacs etc. Then all caught up but for Mussy's eye operation and Kitty's spay. A vet has been recommended that is close enough once I have a car.
That is the biggest NEED for all of us.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
