|The last play time, one week ago|
|Morelka (Sugar) at 13 weeks old|
Maya went home from her week long visit with us on Aug 11, but Morelka was staying with us another week. She was clearly disappointed when we said good by to Maya and brought her inside without her sister. She cried and whined off a little bit, to tell us, she wanted her sister back. But bringing Dixie to her to play seemed to help her feel good about things again.
|Always giving kisses to Mama|
During her last week with us, Morelka seemed to prefer to be with me even more than Dixie. She seemed to know I was the top Mama. When Dixie ran into the woods, Morelka would follow her only a few yards, but then turn and run back to me. In the house I was happy to let her follow me around the kitchen ....I just made sure to put her back in her litterbox every 15-20 minutes. It worked out perfectly and she didn't have any potty accidents.
|Candy Cat is good 'cat socialization' for Morelka|
During Morelka's visit Candy, our cat finally decided it was OK to meet her. Instead of avoiding the puppy (like the plague) she started coming up to say hello. They'd sniff noses briefly and that was all. She did not want to play...but she at least was teaching Morelka that cats can be nice....if you don't chase them!
After this second week with us, the time again came to say goodby. Morelka's family came for her on Saturday evening. Morelka was very excited to see them as they were to see her.! What a treat it was for us to have this time with her!
