My last post gave you a glimpse of how Thimble is settling into my new house, as well as into her new role as her mommy's only feline furbaby girl. As you saw, Thimble is doing great, especially with what I like to consider some divine intervention from my sweet angel Rosie.
Now, how are my other furbabies handling the move?
Evan is also doing great. At least now he is. Both he and Thimble hid under my bed for the first day or so, with Evan hiding longer and more often than Thimble. While Thimble was a brave girl and started exploring (very cautiously) the house on her first night there, Evan stuck exclusively to my room for a full two or three days. He would come out from the under the bed if I was in my room to offer cuddles, but as soon as I left the room he would go right back under the bed. Now, though, except when going under there for an occasional nap, Evan ignores the space beneath my bed. He loves to explore and play throughout the house now. Although, like Thimble, Evan especially loves bedtime and sleeping on Mommy's bed.
|"Why, yes, I am king of this bed. You may now bow down."|
|Evan and Thimble both love this bed, but Evan usually wins out and gets to keep it.|
|"I am also king of this stool. You may now bow down, again."|
Evan is very proud of his skills and his throne of a stool, so he decided to model for a couple more photos...
|Whoa! Photobombed by a yawn.|

One of Astrid's favorite things (which is also one of my favorite things) about the new house is that it has plenty of big windows, from which Astrid loves to keep a watchful eye on neighbors and wildlife. Also, something that all the furbabies love, is that this is their first house with doors that allow a view even from all the way down on the floor. The front entrance has a sturdy glass screen door from top to bottom, and the back door is paned from the top to the bottom as well. Astrid loves this, but so do the kitties (especially Evan, who otherwise has trouble getting to and seeing out of windows).
|So many windows, so little time!|
|"Seriously, Mom, enough with the paparazzi."|
So we're all settling in. It's still taking some getting used to, but all it takes is time.
Have a wonderful Friday, bloggers!
