Menagerie Update

What with all the traveling, we haven't posted much lately on the Menagerie itself... So. Vasco continues to grow up, though he still very much acts like a kitten. But it was quite astounding when we picked him up after our Italy trip-- he had gotten so much bigger!

Here's Vasco curled up with a good book (he must get this trait from Daniela)....

We also recently dogsat briefly for Suzy, the adorable new pug dog who has adopted our friend Jenny. Suzy (on the left) is very much a lap dog-- more so than Lucy, though once Suzy had planted herself on Daniela's lap, Lucy (right) decided that she had to get in on the action as well.

Suzy had a good time playing with Vasco as well-- unlike our dogs, who either ignore (Moose) or try to get away from (Lucy) the cat, Suzy would chase him and try to play with him at every opportunity. Vasco wasn't quite sure what to make of her. I have a video of the two of them that I'll put up soon, but for now, a picture will have to do.

And Moose has contrived to get himself a new dog bed. When we left for Italy, feeling a bit guilty about leaving the animals for so long, we decided to bring Lucy and Moose's beds to the kennel. Lucy was apparently fine with this, but Moose took the opportunity to announce his preference for a new bed-- by promptly shredding his old one.

For a few days, Moose was without a downstairs bed (having only the one in the bedroom). He compensated by curling up a few times in Lucy's bed. Regular readers of this space will know that Moose enjoys curling himself up in a tiny little ball on a small bed. But this was something else altogether. Here's Lucy in her bed-- notice that it is well designed for a small pugdog.

And here's Moose, squeezing his hound dog frame into it...

It doesn't look too comfortable, but he did try it out a couple of different times.... Coming soon, a picture of Moose in his brand new bed, which he likes very much.

Vasco is quite a good-looking kitto (feline version of kiddo?).

I love that, in the photo of Suzy and Vasco, Suzy is clearly looking up at Vasco, saying, "wanna play? huh? huh?"
