Star and Leo, after a few days of trying to share the bed, reverted somewhat. There was fighting, chasing, hissing and grumbling. After one particularly nasty bout, Greg decided that enough was enough.
He’s been talking about getting out Star’s figure 8 harness and leash. We have one for Leo too, but he’s never seen it. Star’s was used when she stayed with my Gramma when we went out of town previously. Otherwise she would stay under the couch there the whole week or two.
In the harness and leash, Star becomes a very ‘humble bumble’, quiet and docile, meek even. And she would sit by my gramma instead of running. It worked then. And Greg’s been saying she needs to be humble again and get along better.
So into the harness she went, and on the leash. Oh she did not like it. We put her next to me and Greg went up after Leo, who’d been chased under the bed.
Leo seemed quite cowed himself and we finally decided that he didn’t need the harness. Greg took Star and her lease to sit by him and I took Leo to sit with me. They watched each other, but no more grumbling ensued. Star wormed her way down beside her daddy rather than on his lap, but that was fine. Leo sat, nervously, but comfortably on me, and then on the Royal Footstool leaning on my knees.
After an hour or Star was allowed out of her leash and snack time commenced. They have been very good with each other, for the most part. Until tonight.. Things are a little touch and go. Leo is almost bouncing out of his skin playing with everything and anything he sees. And Star has been knocking heavens knows what all over the place in the niece’s room.
All I know is the noises coming from there are scaring the kibble out of me! I’m not going to look though... When the niece gets home, we’ll see if she screeches or not. That’s how we’ll determine how bad the damage is. MOL! All I know is that Star is walking around looking smug and playful!
Sorry no new pictures, we just haven’t gotten any taken for a while! We’ll do better! For now, perhaps you'll enjoy these old pictures, I hope!
