Pumpkin update

Princess spent a good part of today doing puzzles with Pumpkin on her lap.
She is not holding him there, he would not leave.

Alley has decided she will ignore Pumpkin
unless he comes near her dish while she is eating
or tries to follow her down to the basement.
We have a litter box down there and a couch
she likes to nap on during the day.
He spends most of his time with Princess or myself
or napping half under the chair in the living room.
He likes to leave half of his body sticking out..not sure why.
The pink kitty bed (in earlier pictures)was originally purchased for Alley by our Goddaughter
(she is a manager at a Claire's) but Alley does not like to sleep in it.
Pumpkin likes it...I don't think he knows it's very pink and girlie.

Another note, I will be watching our friend's little boy during the week while she is at work.
He is almost 2 and Princess enjoys him (most of the time).We will be doing the bulk of our
"school work" in the afternoons after he leaves, which is Princess's preference anyway.
I think she will enjoy having a "part time" sibling.I will enjoy having a bit of income again.
He adores Princess a lot, so I'm pretty sure he'll enjoy the arrangement.
Wish me luck!

What a beautiful cat Pumpkin is! I am very partial to ginger kitties. It is sweet that he likes to be with Princess so much!

P looks very comfy. So are you having him all the time during the week. What fun p will have. I toolove the extra income. I love lazy days and p sure looks like she is enjoying the downtime.

Oh Pumpkin is SO SWEET. Princess must be thrilled.

It is funny because not only do we also have a new pet that loves to follow us around and sit on our laps (Charlotte) but we also have Z's little 3 year old cousin visiting. He is staying at my mom's though. I know I wouldn't be able to get any schooling done with him here. He is in that "gets into everything, favorite word it "no" stage.

Good luck and have fun.

Pumpkin is CUTE! Princess having a part time sibling sounds wonderful! I wonder why I never thought of doing that when Travis was young? OH! I know! We don't have many children that live near us! LOL!

She is so cute with the cat. You can tell the cat adores her. That will be fun for pumpkin to have someone else there.

Pumpkin is just so handsome and orange. He and P are cute together!

I hope you enjoy having your little friend over during the week. I think that sounds wonderful. Ivo would love a part-time sibling.

There is nothing better than watching a child and furry friend bond. Great pictures. I'm so glad it's working out so well!

Enjoy the baby-sitting. Should be lots of fun.

I hope it goes well. Your plan sounds workable since P likes to do school in the afternoon. Best wishes with the new arrangements.

Thank you all for your words of encouragement. I'm hoping for the best, and expecting a bit of the

I'll be thinking of you with the two-legged new addition, as it seems the four-legger is getting on well! You are most certainly correct in expecting both, but this may turn out to be a great thing for you all!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
