The two of them have become best friends, though it's clear that now and again Jetsam would like the chance to be left alone and regroup. As if. Pip has two speeds - FAST and zonked out, so unless he's zonked, Jetsam doesn't have much of a chance to, er, relax. Things are good for them both as a result - Jetsam has lost some weight, and Pip has a lot of his fur grown back where he had his surgery and IV.
A few weeks ago, we had a gorgeous Saturday afternoon when everyone was home, so we decided to get at least a small start on cleaning up the garden, which had not been touched since last summer. Of course the kitties joined us, and Pip was amazed to find out there was an outside to the house as well as an inside.
They had a good time, Jetsam checking things to make sure they smelled the way they should:
and Pip, sniffing and checking out everything - being particularly curious about noisy dead leaves:
After a while, a fire truck headed up the street at the end of ours, on its way with the sirens going, so Pip had to rush inside. This led to several variations of the picture below, where the two cats tried to "attack" each other through window:
This seemed to be by far the most entertaining part of the afternoon for both of them.
Because of weather and/or other things going on, we haven't been out in the garden to make any more progress, but it's finally starting to feel like spring might be actually sticking around for more than just a day or so. I'm glad because I really enjoy spring, and also because the garden needs more work! I'm sure our "snoop-ervisors" will be up to the task once we get back outside ...
To close, I thought you might like this picture that The Tim snapped one day when he was home. Apparently, Pip kept trying to get right. next. to. Jetsam, but Jet kept moving away, so Pip was forced to get close any way he could:
So that's the latest kitty news (with pictures) from around here. Right now everyone at our house is glad tomorrow is Friday - have a good weekend!
