Cathie, It was nice meeting you and John yesterday! Iím about
to head off for work, but wanted to give you a report on how the
girls are doing. Lola seems right at home, at ease exploring
and following us around. Poor Livy is nervous on the hardwood
floors. She feels she has to move fast and hasnít realized
that if she slows down sheíll be fine. The floors donít bother Lola
in the least. Is your home carpeted? Right now Livy is
staying on the family room rug where she feels safe. Jim and I
have quietly and gently coaxed her off the rug using a few cheerios,
but she scoots right back to the rug. Weíll work on it slowly.
They slept together in their bed last night, no problem whatsoever.
I put their pads near their bed and they went on it during the
night. Where can I purchase more of the washable pads? They
donít seem to realize what the disposable pads are for. A few
accidents, but weíll get the hang of it. Iíve decided to return the
car seat I purchased and showed you yesterday and would prefer to
buy a larger crate for when the two are in the car. I feel
they will be safer with a crate belted in. They are both such loves!
Will send pics, but have to dash! I do have some questions and will
be in touchÖMany thanks!
1/30/15:Hi Cathie, The girls are
adjusting to the size of the house, know where to go for their water
in the kitchen from the family room and have also successfully
"powdered their noses" several times outside. We won't mention
any "accidents" because I feel like we won megabucks with these
girls and that will pass (no pun intended,) I feel we are quickly
getting in sync with one another, love them both so much!
Their little jackets are adorable, you were so generous with all the
nice things you gave us to start our life together! I'm so
grateful for your wonderful care and compassion, thank you for
everything! Nikki xo
Cathie, By all means, please mark Lola and Livy as adopted! They
have restored my heart to a happy state. Even though it has just
been a couple of days with these beautiful little souls, we are
family now! I have made a vet appointment on Feb 5. I'm sure Dr.
Mansfield will be thrilled to see them. I will let you know how
that goes. Two of our boys are coming to see the new additions to
the family this weekend, very excited! Have a nice weekend...go
