Feline Friday: New Cat Sitter

While I was away this past week, care of the kitties fell to Spouse. I can't recall when or even if Spouse has ever had to cat-sit for me. But Daughter was also away, so Spouse had no choice but to step up to the plate. Mind you, he barely knows the names of the kitties, let alone how to take care of them.

But while I was gone, something very surprising happened: Spouse sent me a few cell phone pictures, including this one which he labeled "Lunch Time". He NEVER lets Lily put her feet on the table, so I was surprised he let her stay in that position long enough to take the picture.

This could only mean one thing: Lily was winning him over.

Tinsel understandably became a little freaked out with Spouse in the House, so for a couple of days she only picked at her food. Then, in an uncharacteristic display of concern, he put Lily in the basement one evening so that Tinsel could dine in peace. And I received this nice cell phone picture captioned "Maybe I will eat something."

This could only mean one thing: Tinsel was winning him over. 

Then there was this one.

After all these years, I think he MIGHT be coming around. :)

Jay done good. Love the pictures. You can now feel free to leave again some time and leave him in charge.

Janet said...

Yes, he did! I was pleasantly surprised!

Connie said...

Yipee for Jay and the camera phone!

Heather said...

Aww!! You know they secretly love our kitties, even if they won't admit it!

Daisy said...

Ah, he's a good catdad!

Fear of retribution is a great motivator.

Yay for Spouse! and Yay for kitties that know how to manipulate! :)
