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!
Aw, sweet Bert, look at him, what a love bug. (Well, so is Oliver!) Fingers and paws crossed Bert's human gets the offer she wants and that all goes smoothly with the sale and whatever house she's purchasing.ReplyDelete
I was wondering how he would act when he saw his old friends. Does he remember them and vice versa? Good that he is well.ReplyDelete
A lap is as good as a house! Bert's orange coloring around his nose looks like he's been in a bad of Cheetos...ReplyDelete
WOW! It had to be wonderful to love on Bert again. You look quite happy Oliver!ReplyDelete
Bert, I am SO very glad you are back to your first home again and happy with the visit but Oliver, I love seeing you in your Dad's lap. You may not have your room right now but oh, how dear to see you there being snuggled. If only only only you you feel you didn't have to mark everything. Oh Oliver.ReplyDelete

I'm happy that Bert has a good place to spend a few days. I may be selling my house and I don't fancy the idea of people coming through it with my bunch still there, so I have to come up with ideas.ReplyDelete
Great to see Bert again! Love what Eastside Cats said about his orange puss.ReplyDelete
