A new "cousin" - sort of!

Here's a cutie who has adopted my grandbeans' garage and backyard. When he first showed up, he was really skinny -- too skinny -- and his fur was not in good shape. He clearly hadn't eaten much in a while. So now he has a bed and regular food and water, and he's been checked out at the v-e-t's -- got caught up on shots. We've made flyers which we will laminate and post around the area. He is clearly someone's pet, but no one knows who -- and he's not talking! His name? "Kitty" for now, although "Garage Kitty" was his nickname at first.

Of course, Grace & Company are completely oblivious to his existence! But Cabernet knows he's out there, and Cabernet doesn't play nice. So he's restricted to being indoor-kitty until he learns some manners -- which may never happen!

Rippin' it up!

I know it's not Audace alone, but he's the biggest user of the S-toy. They all love it, but he dominates it!! The close-ups show how he's already in the process of ripping up the carpeted spots!

Going slightly nuts!

Audace and Ruse are easily riled up! They need ... they BEG ... for playtime, morning and evening. (And of course the rest of the day and night is reserved for snoozing and eating, mostly snoozing!)

Here's Audace, all tangled up in his twine toys! He doesn't seem to care if I fling the twine around so he can chase and jump or if it's all draped around him so he can run around the house like a whirling dervish, chasing that twine!

And here's Ruse. He had chased the twine toy all over the place -- and he ended up under the play cubes!! He likes to push them around the room from underneath!

Here's Ruse again, getting in some scratching time on what Audace thinks is his own S-toy!!

Here's Audace again, having run from the garage through the hallway and family room, into the living room, into the kitchen and ending up on top of the fridge. Well, he's a BIG boy and needs his running space, that's clear!
