Mardi has been here for a little more than 2 months and this week has seen a great victory in her dog/cat relations. She has never shown any aggression toward the cats but she has been too enthusiastic about getting up close and playing. She is just too abrupt in her movements. The cats have adjusted to the point that they move about with some confidence but if Mardi moves quickly, they withdraw. A couple days ago the more confident cat joined Mardi and me in the huge recliner. Mardi was lying on her half and the cat came and stood on my lap for a minute. Since then the less confident cat has sat on my lap, next to Mardi, for at least 10 minutes. Progress has been slow but I believe this is a big step forward.
That is GREAT progress!

Great, it can only get better.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
