THIS is a First!
Drewey loves spending time on the back deck. It's nice and high so she has an excellent view of our yard. She can see several doors down, and keep a watch on the yelping beagle to the left, and the spastic black dog to the right. If a roaming cat cuts through the yard, she sees them, but they don't see her.
The deck heats up in the afternoon sun, so it's the ideal spot to lounge and nap. This is HER space and she's happiest here.
The weather was lovely yesterday so Craig and I decided to join Drewey on the deck while we lunched. Benny was by the door when we headed out, so I let him come along.
As you all know, Drewey RARELY expresses any interest in the kittens at all, but this time she walked right over to Benny Musselman and gave him a hello sniff. There was no hissing, growling, or bottle brush tails from either party. It was just a friendly little "how do you do". I've NEVER seen her do this before.
After their little exchange, Benny ran off and explored the deck. Drewey just sat by us and watched.
I was happy Craig and I got to witness this sweet moment, and thankful I had my camera right there so I could share it with you.
Of course, when Drewey came back in for dinner and found the kittens bouncing in the kitchen, she gave them her best "children, play elsewhere" glare which sent them all scrambling.
