This past week we cleaned the porch and put the cushions on the furniture. It suddenly turned into a welcoming room. Comfy and pretty.
This is the first summer for our refugee cat Grace. Initially she was terrified of the porch. The overhead fans were spinning and nothing looked familiar. She’s a curious cat though. She would peer around the doorway to look. Her friend Morgan beckoned. (Hard to say no to Morgan!)
They are besties. Although it wasn’t planned like that, Grace has given Morgan a playmate. The older cats weren’t always pleased with her prancing and chasing especially if they were in the middle of their siesta.
Gracie, on the other hand, is more than ready for a good chase. Any time. Any place.
Sometimes when you do a good deed, there are a lot more benefits than you expected.
It warms my heart to see her out there watching the wildlife. She gets so fully engaged that you have to be careful not to startle her. She stays with Morgan when she’s unsure of herself and that works for Morgan too.
She’s not all rainbows and lollipops. We have battles every day on what she will eat and when. And the dumpster diving. That’s another post though. This is about introducing a new friend to a new experience and watching her embrace it fully.
