Casey Meets the Dogs

Tresa came out yesterday to spend the weekend. Her hubby, Chris was out of town. She brought along Casey the kitty and oh what fun we had. Sorry for the many fuzzy pictures, but between my shaky hands and the animals not sitting still....well, you get the idea.

My dogs were use to cats. We have had many over the years...although we have been catless for a while now....they seemed to remember and immediately were curious about this new little critter that found it's way into their home.

We let them sniff at her while she was still in her little pet taxi. Wrigley was the most interested until Casey hissed and spit at her.

Sparky was more interested in Casey's "things". She seemed to like her bed the most.

When we let her out and she got a look at the dogs, she let out some really big hisses and zoomed as fast as she could behind the couch. Tresa finally got her out, but the hissing continued for hours to come.

Finally Casey started to venture out of the hallway.

She would sneak down and peek around the corner to see where the dogs were. She was okay as long as they didn't get too close.

When they did, she did her best Halloween cat imitation, trying to make herself look much bigger than she really is, let out a few hisses and run and hide.

By this morning, her confidence was much better....and then it was time to go home.

Sometimes I think I really want a couple of cats again, but then as soon as Wrigley went in the litter box this morning and ate something that she shouldn't have eaten....I decided I'm really fine without any.

Haha, do dogs eats cat poop?! Wow! Dogs'll eat anything, eh?! Thanks for sharing the visit. We are on vacation and I miss my cats terribly, the dog and the guinea pig-not so much!

cute tortoise-shell, ours used to have that kind of figure too, but now has middle age spread. Both of ours hide in the basement from our daughter's dog when she visits:)

I love the story and all the pictures to go with it! Maybe next time she will let the dogs play with her a little more.

...and thank you for the encouraging comments. I know all about the sinking feeling. Of all the shows I have ever done that is the first time I have ever been to one with such terrible results. I am not sure if it was the heat, the economy, or if the festival was just not advertised enough. I did feel better that I wasn't the only one not selling...but I just felt so let down for all of us. I know that every booth there had a ton of prep time. We all just spent the afternoon looking at each other's booths. I saw so much I wanted to purchase...but I couldn't because I was already so far in the hole. I am not sure when my next show will be.

Did you see my post with my craft apron? I think it was last Thursday's post.

That is one cute little kitty. Great story too. Our daughter brought her cat over Christmas vacation. Poor Bella stayed under her bed the entire time! I hope you had a great weekend. ~Natalie

Great post and great pics! Don't get a cat! We have one who has discontinued to use the litter box and there's no turning back for her now! UGH!
