Making Friends

After his weigh in Saturday, Stanley was off to meet Sarah, the lovely wheaton mix. It was an important meeting - Stanley will probably be spending some time with Sarah and her family when we head out for vacation in September.

I was very nervous. We hadn't introduced Stanley to any other canines yet and let's just say that his encounters to date on the street have been less than friendly....

Apparently, I was nervous for nothing - they weren't exuberantly playing together, but things were uneventful. Whew!

They both were very attentive when I had some treats in hand...

and we even made it out for a short walk around the block!

Hopefully things will only be better when Sarah comes to visit us!


  1. Yay! I need to get Melvin out and about with some other kitties. People say that you don't need to socialize your cats, I think that's poppycock!

    Also, Melvin actually really enjoys his baths. He's quite odd, actually. He will run into the bathroom and jump right in the tub and just wait patiently for me to finish.

    He just hates the cold part afterwards. :P

  2. Ooh, maybe Stanley & Maggie can become friends!
