Shelby hasn't been particularly conciliatory to anyone who visits here until this eve when my friend Dar came over and sat on the lounge chair with her. She let him pet her and sweet talk to her without flapping her tail in the process

My niece came over later with her 3 little ones, ages 9 mo, 2 yrs and 3 yrs. I was worried. But the cats seemed to be very interested in the kids, especially Sky. Tonight the two boys are sleeping on the mattress and Shelby is curled up between them.

Sky has discovered my LR closet and somehow gets on to the highest shelf and watches us all from this secret spot. We were all worried that he had somehow gotten out and went to search for him. After about 20 minutes I saw Keli head toward the closet and growl.

As soon as I saw him I asked him what he was doing up there and he leaped down. Keli thought he was rude and walked away ignoring him.

Sky Shel and Boo chased little plastic wiffle balls aroubd all night as the little boys threw them in all directions.

I finally got tired of all the excitement and hid the balls, but one. My grand nephew threw that one high into the air and it landed inside the 20 gallon dry fish tank. Sheby went after it. She was very persistent in trying to get to it. She could see it through the glass but since various other things were piled in there she had to poke and dig for it. After a while about half and hour I got it out for her and she chased it again

Sky and Shel still wont go into their cages. Maybe they are enjoying their freedom too much.
