Recognize this guy?
Yep, it's the Bert-man!!
We get the pleasure of his presence for a long weekend! His mom is selling her house as she's moving further south. The real estate market here is pretty hot, with lots of demand and few houses available. What that means is houses sell crazy-quick. Basically, you list your house, go away for a long weekend, people come see it and when you return you sort through the five or six offers you received and choose the one you want.
Bert's mom went to hang out at the ocean for the weekend with her doggies and didn't want to leave Bert there by himself as potential buyers paraded through their house, so he's with us! He was a little scared at first and thus hissy, then he started to trust and wanted head rubs and loves for a few seconds before the hissing started, and now it's just love! No more hisses! Not having seen him for awhile, I forgot just how amazingly lovey he is! He is such a sweetie!!
He's gotten a little more plump around the middle, he was always a solid cat, now he's a little more robust! It's good to get some Bert time again, so glad this guy has a great home now! Yea for Bert!!! Seeing Bert so lovey and so well cared for makes my heart warm with gratitude.
Having Bert here means we have a very full house! Five cats downstairs, Marvin moved to our bedroom, and Bert gets Oliver's room, which leaves Oliver and Pierre outside. Seven cats in our small house (996 sqft, 92.5 sqm) feels like a lot of cats!! I had to run the dishwasher this morning full of just cat dishes. Oh my!
And poor Oliver wanted some inside time today, but there are no rooms available! Maybe we need a bigger house to accommodate all the cats!
Oliver didn't care about not having a room, he was quite happy
being in my lap in the middle of the living room!
