company

We have out of town family visiting. The cats (everyone except for Buddy and Nahum) have spent the last week mostly in hiding as we have four other occupants staying in our tiny house! Two adults and two kids (14 and 12). That's a lot of unknown people for Willow, Rose and Theo to contend with. A week later and Theo is starting to come out more, but Willow waits until the kids go to bed before braving it. Rose is only seen in the wee hours of the morning before anyone is up.


Since our spare room is in use by the visiting family, I built the cats a hidey spot under the desk in the room we are in. I was happy to see Rose and Willow occupying their safe space.

And since we have needed to use Oliver's room for our bedroom, that has meant Oliver hasn't been able to come in, which is sad. I've been locking him on the back porch at night, and thankfully, he's a good sport about it.


Because I've been locking him up on the porch, I don't get to spend as much time with him. So, I've been hanging out with Mr. Oliver in his yard, something he likes. And I must admit, I like it too!

  1. If I keep saying how much I admire you and your ethics regarding these dear ones, you will find me even more strange so, I won't! But you know what I'm thinking! You and your wife are the best! By the way, Oliver looks regal!

  2. Oliver is a handsome boy! I bet the kitties will be happy when the company leaves.

  3. We know the kitties will be glad to have the house back! My Jenna disappears when anyone else is in the apartment. Oliver looks very content with you in his yard :-)

  4. I love how contented Oliver looks with you patting him on the blanket. It is disruptive when visitors come. Louie and Wilbur just disappear.

  5. Charlie isn't fond of visitors either but will come out if it's someone he knows. He even comes out and 'watches' Tiger from a safe distance but it's taken lots of time for him to do that. You are so sweet with your kitties and Oliver looks so content with you! Big Hugs to all.

  10. You are just super to make the kitties a Safe House! Oliver doesn't look like he's "suffering" too badly. ;-)

  13. Having company is always nice, but getting the house back is nice too. Glad that hidey hole is working well for them,
