I keep thinking there are a few days , at least, until Thanksgiving !
I have everything for the meal ... will make a few things ahead of time, today.
The beds are ready and the house is dusted and there are no large balls of Merlins hair lying around.
I could build another cat with the hair he leaves lying around.
Minette , the Good Girl, went up on top of the fridge where she is sleeping.
That is her new Favorite Nap Place , her favorite Scare Mama place and Keep Warm place.
Merlin lays on the sofa .. he is not that adventurous ... a nice big sofa cushion with a blanket just for him is fine. All he could ever ask for. And there is no danger of rolling off in his sleep and falling 5-6 feet.
He will be gobsmacked, baffled, dazed and confused not to mention horrified when People arrive at our door. People and one small creature who will want to touch him !
I don't expect Merlin to leave my closet, room , bathroom for the duration of the visit.
I will have to take his dinner in to him.
Which leads me to wonder how he will like taking that long drive in a car ... for 3 days .. hotel rooms at night ... strange people, smells, cold and noise and a car ... I know it is all hard enough on me !
Minette will be a little trooper .. she will be curious, adventurous and fearless , especially since she can sleep next to mama .. that is my little girl.
Although I have decided, when we are not in the car with them in a crate, they will be in the crate in the hotel room too.
It is too scary horrifying and dangerous ( for them and my peace of mind ) not to be always safely tucked away in their crate .
So I have our version of Thanksgiving planned and I hope to be able to enjoy more time with the baby than with the dinner and stove.
It won't be a long visit so I have to make the most of it.
