This morning I came in and let the little ones out and then miss Prue, who was going crazy in her bed. She actually sat for me this morning, so I let her out next and praised her. She knows the drill already! The pups did their thing and came in to eat. After they finished, we headed back out. It was a chilly morning, so Gabi didn't want to be out too long. I found Prue's ball in the daylight and we had ourselves a nice game of fetch! Hudson was off exploring until it was time to head in. I left them out to see how they'd do. This afternoon I returned and all was well. It had warmed up and turned out to be a beautiful day! The pups and I headed outside. I tried to play fetch with Prue, but she just wanted to chew on her bone. She laid down and worked on that while the others explored. I saw Hudson had started digging, so I yelled for him to stop. Then suddenly, I saw he had something in his mouth. He caught and killed a mole! I went over to try and get him to drop it, which he did, but he did not want to leave it! Once I finally did, then the others had come over and Prue was trying to dig next. Haha. I got everyone inside eventually. This evening I came in and let the pups out of their beds. They pottied and came in for dinner. Gabi didn't want to eat tonight, so I put her bowl up for later. We went outside to play a bit since it was still nice out. Prue went right for her bone and gnawed away at that. Then, I saw the neighbor dog to the east had gotten out and came over. He raced along the fence, barking and got these three all riled up. They all ran laps back and forth. I kept a close eye to make sure no one got any ideas or got into trouble. Eventually he went away and must have gotten let inside. The pups settled back down and did their thing. I left them out tonight to see how they'd do since they did well this morning.

Today the boys were both at the door, ready for me. I came in and saw they had had fun with some paper towel on the roll on the counter. Haha. I got their breakfast ready for them and Guthrie was happy to help. I delivered their bowls, but neither came to eat. I scooped boxes and found Guthrie in the front dining room and he happily raced to the office door when he saw me coming. Murdy appeared from somewhere and they both followed me in to get the feathers. After I came out, Guthrie came to play for a minute. Both boys seemed to disappear shortly after. Guthrie had gone to soak up some sun that was shining into the front dining room. Murdy had gone upstairs. I went up there to see what he was up to. Sure enough, he was getting some sunbathing in as well. Guthrie came racing up the stairs not long after and hopped on the back of the couch to get some pets.
This morning Oreo was in his new favorite spot, sitting on the dining room chair. He hopped down and headed for the kitchen. Stuffy was sitting on the floor in the bedroom doorway. The boys got breakfast, then it was time to snuggle up by the fire. They took their naps and stayed with me the whole time. This evening I came in and heard Oreo, but didn't see him right away. This time, he had moved to his chair by the back door. As I got dinner ready, Stuffy even wandered into the kitchen with us. Oreo wasn't too interested in dinner and went to go sit by the fireplace right away. Stuffy ate for me, then joined his brother to wait for me. We all sat there and the boys got their pets and brushes. I think I nearly fell asleep with them tonight! Haha. Happy Thanksgiving!

This morning I came in and saw Oreo was hanging out on the dining room chair again. He got down and met me in the kitchen. I saw Stuffy was laying on the floor next to the box in the dining room corner. I called for him, but he didn't budge. I brought his food there for him to eat. Oreo went to sit and wait by the fireplace for me. I turned it on and suddenly Stuffy came to join us. The boys cozied up next to me and took their little cat naps. This evening I came in and Oreo was right at the door. He was ready to eat! He led the way to the kitchen and nibbled on his dinner. I went to find Stuffy and he was laying on the couch in the bedroom. I gave him his dinner and went to go visit with Oreo, who was patiently waiting by the fireplace. They sure love to snuggle up to it! Stuffy joined us shortly after. Both boys laid on their sides, purring away. Stuffy got brushed and Oreo enjoyed his pets and chin rubs.
This evening I heard a new bark coming from the house as I walked up. Haha. I came in and let the little ones out quick. I let Prue out next and she sure was excited! She tried to sit a bunch of times, but her booty couldn't sit quite still long enough to touch the ground. Haha! She finally did a on second touch down so I said that was good enough for our first visit. She went out and pottied with the others. They came in and all did their happy dance for dinner. She cracks me up! Everyone ate well for me. Then, we went back outside. Gabi didn't want to stay out too long. I don't blame her... brrrr! Hudson was off in the dark, chewing on a bone. I brought that one in with us later. Prue sat with me and got some heiny scratches, then wandered off to explore a bit. We headed inside and the pups settled down. Gabi got cozy on the bed and the other two worked on their bones. Prue let out a little grumble at Gabi when she walked by. I put them back in their beds for tonight and we'll test out a shorter time tomorrow during the day that they can be out and see how they do.
Today Guthrie was pawing up against the glass when he saw me walking up. He and Murdy met me at the door to say hi. The boys helped me in the kitchen. Guthrie ate right away. I saw Murdy sneak in while I was scooping boxes. He quickly ran back out when he saw I was done. Guthrie was already waiting by the office to help get his toy. He didn't play for very long today. He did come by for some pets now and then. It was Murdy who was the playful one! Racing up and down his tower, hiding behind the ottoman, and sneak attacking the feathers, Murdy was just having a blast! He even ran to the kitchen and hopped up above the cabinets. Crazy cat!

This morning the boys were hanging out by the back door. I came in and said hi, then got their breakfast ready. Oreo was on the floor next to me, waiting patiently. He ate his pill and got his food plate. Stuffy was waiting for his by the back door. After I finished, we met in the living room for some attention time. Stuffy didn't stay long again. This evening I saw Stuffy hanging out on the balcony. Then, I was surprised to see Oreo sitting on one of the dining room chairs! He was looking through the railings at me and made me laugh! Oreo quickly joined me in the kitchen as I got dinner ready. Someone had gotten sick in the kitchen so I cleaned that up, then got Stuffy his food. He got up and walked away, so I kept following him with his plate until he finally ate for me. Haha! Tonight the boys were both ready to cuddle up by the fire. We sat there and they got their pets and brushes.
Today I saw Murdy through the door as I walked up. Guthrie was sitting right next to him. I came in and they walked me down the hall. Murdy jumped on the counter to help me get his food. I moved his bowl on him and he didn't like that I guess. Haha. I tried to get him to come to the laundry room, but he just sat on his spot on the island. I carried him over and he ate for me. Guthrie was already trying to get my attention as he kept walking over to the office door. He got his wish as soon as I finished cleaning up their room. After he got some playtime in, then he took a break to eat. Murdy took advantage of that and had his own playtime. He was sure spunky today! Murdy raced around and stalked the feathers. Then, he raced from the front door all the way up his tower, then down behind the tv, and up on top of the cabinet. I thought I was going to have to jump up and catch something, because he was waddling like he was going to make an attempt for the window!! Luckily, he thought better of that and I made him get down. Haha.

This morning both boys were hanging out by the back door. Oreo was on his chair and Stuffy on the floor just below. Oreo came to brush his face against the back of my legs while I got his food ready. The boys ate and I tended to my things. Oreo was waiting for me by the fireplace. I turned it on for him. He snuggled up to me for his pets as we got cozy and warm by the fire. Stuffy came in for a little while, but later ventured off. This evening Stuffy was sitting in the bedroom doorway and Oreo was on his chair. Oreo got up on the counter to help me tonight. I guess he was a hungry boy! He got snacking on his treats, so I had to move them until he ate his pill for me. After dinner, the boys met me in the living room. Oreo got his pets and some brush time. Stuffy got some brushes, but then he went and sat off a ways. Oreo eventually wandered off to go sit by my shoes. Haha.
Today the boys were waiting for me again by the door. I came in and Guthrie hopped up on the counter and got a few pets before I went to get his breakfast. Murdy got up there and sat on his little bed. I picked him up and put him in the laundry room to eat. He finished and I heard Guthrie meowing from the kitchen. I went out there and he was trying to get me to follow him to the office. He was more interested in playing than eating his food! The boys both got a little playtime in. Murdy eventually wandered upstairs. Guthrie hid behind the ottoman and would jump up to catch the feathers. Haha. He took a break after awhile to go eat.
