Zoe was up at 2:30 a.m. and back asleep much faster than Mom was. I’ve started going to bed at 10:30 to get 4 hours of sleep, then take her outside for a pee when she wakes up and cries to be taken outside, play for awhile, then head back to bed where she falls asleep cuddled as close to my ear as possible and, fully awake, I do my blogs and Wordle before going back to bed at 4:30. Then up at 8 to feed the other critters.
She now has the run of the house, comes running when I make a kissing sound, comes to whatever room I’m in. When I take her out front to pee, she makes a beeline for the unfinished cat food and goes into a shivering frenzy over it until I put it up in the cupboard. She’s also been out without a leash but carefully watched, to communicate with Diego and Morrie. Diego follows her everywhere, nuzzling her nose, and is very careful with her.
Morrie ignores her completely but just today came over and went nose-to-nose for a small while and was careful with her. She walked over to the pool to see if Catherine was there but when she wasn’t, backed away. I’ll never let her out near the pool alone until she’s big enough to swim and use the stairs out of the pool. She weighs almost 2 pounds and is a very smart girl and fast learner.
