Fun and Games....well, maybe

It's been an interesting few days here at the Squash House!  Thanks to all of you who have shown such an interest in our new little kitten and also offered help and suggestions!  Sasha had felt very threatened by tiny Gracie May Slick, but today brings some small and good changes!  Although, I must say I'm not sure about waking up with a furry little ball chasing her tail on my head!
Don't you just love Gracie's markings?  We think she'll have short hair, but Sophie looked like this as a kitten and grew a beautiful, long coat.  Time will tell.  Here she is after an exhaustive session with some of her toys!
Oh, my - a paper bag!  She played for a long time with it....
...while the Sentinel watched from the hallway...ready to pounce!
This morning I thought I would play with Sasha and her favorite stick.  Look who decided to join in on the action!
I had to set the stick down to take this photo.  They were actually being somewhat nice to each other - taking turns playing.  Gracie's foster mother said once Sasha realizes Gracie isn't a threat to her, they should be pals in no time.  Sasha's growls and posturing have been reduced greatly, so we're feeling pretty good about it!
The garden is looking so wonderful - each day a few more things blooms!
Check out the three carnations!  Hard to believe that they were in 4" pots two years ago when I planted them!  They're now at least 5 feet in circumference - each!
I'll leave you today with this view.  The Japanese willow got a big haircut over the weekend, but it won't be long before it looks just like this again!

Your garden is BEAUTIFUL. The cats will adapt. Its hard to get an older cat - though not that old - to bond with a kitten but it will happen. They are both beautiful. Have you watched the Youtube video called Sad Cat or something like that? Hilarious! Reminds me of my cat Pingo.

Enjoy them.

I love that photo of Gracie sleeping. So sweet. She really is a pretty cat. Good to see the two are getting a little more friendly.
Your yard looks beautiful.

I'm beyond thrilled to hear that a semblance of truce has been issued by Sasha. It's only going to get better from here on...trust me. They are both beautiful and will be bestest friends before you know it.

Your gardens are phenominal. I can look at it for hours. Your hard work is paying off in dividends. NOw it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor...pun intended!

Your garden is breathtakingly beautiful! I love the way you planted variety of shrubs, trees and grasses everywhere. It looks organic and wonderful! Enjoy the flowers :)
Sasha and Gracie seem to be getting to an understanding. Sasha has grown quite a bit and looking cuddly since you got her. She seems to know she is the boss ;-)

Your yard is gorgeous. Ours is just getting started and we really don't even have anything blooming yet. UGH. So glad that Sasha is warming up to Miss Gracie.

Jeanna said...

The kitties are just adorable...they will be best buds before you know it!

Florida Farm Girl said...

I'm swooning, girlfriend!!!! Your garden is magnificent. And Gracie and Sasha aren't bad, either. Hope they're friendly soon.

Ulla said...

Amazing what you can grow in your garden! It is so beautiful.

Houseelf said...

Aww I hope they will be the best of pals soon. Such beautiful colours in your garden.

Me and My Stitches said...

So happy that the girls are coming around! Your gardens are just beautiful!

AnnieO said...

There is nothing more entertaining than a kitten, but tail chasing on your head is pushing the limit! Hope they are best pals soon.

Gorgeous gardens!

Your kitties are so pretty they make me wish I wasn't allergic to them! And your garden is positively gorgeous. I'm obsessed with that little round tree with white wispy things, I want one!! What is that?! On round three of the window garden. No one told me half my plants LIKED the dry out, and the other half can't take the heat! I should have just asked my Mom, the gardening genius, from the start. Oh well, still learning! :)
