August 16, 2016: A Remarkable Day for the 'O' Cats!

August 16, 2016: A Remarkable Day for the 'O' Cats!*

Why, you ask?

Because The Hubby put out his hand, and Patty O'Malley, Aries...
Sweetie all gave him rubs!

Snoozing Aries

Patty and I just have to be touching somehow

That's Sweetie, up on the Stairway to Heaven!
Yep, The Hubby is working his way into their little cat hearts...YAY!

Wait...there's MORE!

Not only that, Sweetie allowed me to put Advantage II Flea treatment on her.  She has NEVER allowed me that much license to touch her before.  This time, she just kept eating at her bowl, while I doused her between the shoulderblades.  Patty O'Malley got his too, but that's not news.

All of this progress, but still not much further with convincing Patty or Sweetie up the stairs.  Next week, I'll start trying daily.  Maybe making it so normal to them, that they overcome their hesitancy.

I'm off for a mini-vacation weekend; see you next week.
Have fun, all!
