UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

First Night

Well, Barney did very well his first night home. After we moved to the bedroom, he found a spot to hide away and sleep in - it is in a corner behind the nightstand. I was freaking out because I couldnt' find him at first - now I know where to check! I slept on the floor last night, because our bed is very high and I knew it would be tough for him to get up and down, although he is an extremely good climber. I did the same thing on Virgil's first night home. Barney decided to sleep on my neck, and so I had to keep telling him my face was not a pillow. I was able to convince him to scoot down a bit, and then later I had him under the blanket, which he loved. At one point he slid off me to the floor (well, the mattress of blankets I had made really) and that worked out good for me, because I prefer to sleep on my side,so I was able to do that. He slept on my pillow next to me. At some point he moved to his corner. He didn't have any accidents that I found (his litter box has a light I put near it so he can always find it) and he ate a bunch of food this morning (he had a bunch last night too). He purrs a LOT and is very snuggly - I may just get my wish of a cat that will sit on my shoulder - I have tried with the other 4 and they just are not interested. I will be trying for more pictures when I get home. He was crazy last night so it was hard. He was exploring so fast it was hilarious. The other kitties are camped outside the door - I heard a couple fights last night when everyone should have been sleeping. They didn't bother Barney though. I will post more later with pictures!

It was so kind of you to sleep on the floor so little Barney could be with you!

Snuggling up on the humans face or chest is also one of my favourites, welcome home, Barney!

Welcome Home Barney! Ivan gets on Mom's shoulder.. She thought it was odd.. Never seen a cat do that before, she said.
